Siltcoos River

  • Address:
    South of Florence on Hwy 101
    Dunes City OR 97439

For a peaceful experience, paddle either direction on a 3-mile (4.8 km) water trail just south of Florence in Dunes City. This short, gentle river flows from Siltcoos Lake through a quiet, forested area; traverses Oregon's sand dunes; and drifts into an estuary. Siltcoos is an ideal half-day kayak or canoe trip that can be combined with excellent birding, wildlife watching, fishing and camping. The lower section of the river passes through nesting habitat of the protected Snowy Plover. During nesting season, March 15 - September 15, paddlers must remain in their boat.
