Complete Marina Facilities

Salmon Harbor Marina is one of the largest recreational facilities on the Oregon Coast. The marina has immediate access to the Umpqua River, the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, the Pacific Ocean, and miles of white-sand public beaches.

550 moorage slips are available in Salmon Harbor for short-term or long-term occupancy, at competitive rates. Both wood and concrete docks, with shore power and domestic water, are available.

Harbor services include two launch ramps. A full-service fuel dock is available at the west end launch offering Non-Ethanol Premium fuel 92 octane for Water Craft, ATVís and Lawn Tools.

Boats moored at Salmon Harbor.Need repairs or supplies? Winchester Bay businesses offer a range of services for mariners. As well as sling-type and crane-type launching facilities for larger vessels. The U.S. Coast Guard is also available to assist you from their station in Salmon Harbor. Visitors are welcome to tour their facility. Please call ahead (541-271-2138) to make arrangements.

Camping Opportunities

Salmon Harbor also has 124 self-contained camping sites available with restroom and shower facilities. These campsites are on a first come first serve basis and are available year-round.

Sightseeing

Visitors with historical interests will want to tour the Umpqua River Lighthouse, over a century old and commanding dramatic views of the Oregon Dunes and the Pacific Ocean. In nearby Reedsport, the Umpqua Discovery Center offers a glimpse into the region's past, from the times of the Kuuich tribe to the present. Historic homes dot the community of Gardiner, just the other side of the Umpqua River.

Wildlife

Don't miss the Dean Creek Elk Viewing Area, just outside Reedsport on Highway 38, where you can view these majestic animals in a protected natural setting. Whales travel past Winchester Bay on their annual migration each spring. And you'll find a range of coastal wildlife along the many hiking trails in the area.

Fishing

Few anglers go home from Salmon Harbor empty-handed. Species in the area include Chinook salmon, striped bass, steelhead, sturgeon, chad, pink fin perch, and small mouth bass. We've become known as the Crab Capital of Oregon for the delicious Dungeness crab you can catch right off the docks, and several different species of clam are just a pail and shovel away.

Off-Roading

It's hard to match the exhilaration of climbing the towering Oregon Dunes in an all-terrain vehicle. Bring your own, or rent locally, to explore off the beaten track! Annual events in Salmon Harbor include competitions for the dedicated ATV-er. Or, for a taste of "old-fashioned" off-roading, dogsleds meet the dunes in the annual Dune Mushers' Run.
