Need to relax? Love the outdoors? Alfred A. Loeb State Park combines secluded relaxation with the natural wonders of Southern Oregon. The crisp fragrance of myrtlewood is the prevailing scent in the air; the park is nestled in groves of these marvelous 200-year-old trees. Just beyond the park, the Chetco River rushes toward the Pacific Ocean. Depending on the time of year, the park provides swimming, steelhead and salmon fishing. Fishermen cast from shore or head out in drift boats, spending lazy afternoons on the water. Chipmunks playing on the shore and river otters paddling through the water are also a common sight. Bird-watchers love the area because of the diverse bird population, and ospreys are extremely active at the park. No matter what time of the year, visitors enjoy the self-guided Riverview nature trail. The park is home to the northernmost redwood grove in the United States. Campsites and cabins are available.Take the time to enjoy the wondrous views and sights of the great Oregon outdoors.
