# 69 Go Fishing at William M. Tugman State Park

Despite its close proximity to Hwy 101, Tugman State Park is relatively unknown — a private hideaway on the wondrous south coast. Located only about one mile from the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, this quaint and rustic area provides everything needed for a relaxing getaway. There is a picnic area that may be reserved, a public access boat ramp and a public fishing dock. The park boasts beautiful campsites tucked away in a strand of mature shore pine, and 16 yurts for lodging available by reservation. The park is located on scenic Eel Lake, excellent for boating, fishing, canoeing, swimming and sailing. The bushy shores provide areas for bass fishing and the lake is full of rainbow trout, steelhead, crappie and Coho salmon as well. You can also hike a great trail that follows the southern side of the lake and traces the many unique coves and inlets that shape the lake.
