On the edge of the Umpqua River, the Windy Cove A RV Park and Campground is one of two RV parks on Salmon Harbor Drive in Winchester Bay. It’s on the doorstep of the Umpqua Lighthouse State Park and the Ziolkowski Beach Park, as well as the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.
RV camping at the Windy Cove A RV Park and Campground includes access to 28 RV sites, with water and electric (20 or 30-amp connections) available at each. Cable TV and Wi-Fi are both provided for guests, as are clean restrooms with flush toilets and showers. Pets are welcome to stay with you at the RV park while big rigs can be accommodated at some sites.
A highlight of camping at the Windy Cove A RV Park and Campground is its access to the Umpqua Lighthouse State Park, which is centered around the waters of beautiful Lake Marie. It’s a popular destination for angling and non-motorized boating, with a small sandy beach where you can swim and cool off during the summer months. The 65-foot Umpqua River Lighthouse dominates the entrance to Winchester Bay, with a small museum where you can learn about the maritime history of Douglas County.
A short hop across the Umpqua River from the Windy Cove A RV Park and Campground is the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. Spanning 40 miles along the Pacific coast, the dunes are the largest of their kind in North America, with some reaching up to 500 feet above sea level. It’s also an incredibly popular birdwatching area, with tundra swans and Canada goose inhabiting the marsh and coastal wetlands while western snowy plovers use the Oregon Dunes as a nesting site.
If you’re an avid angler, make the ten-minute drive south to the William M. Tugman State Park, which hugs the waters of Eel Lake. It’s named after a journalist from Eugene who became the first chairman of the OPRD Advisory Committee, which played an influential role in establishing Oregon’s state parks. The lake supports healthy populations of largemouth bass, rainbow trout, and crappie, as well as steelhead and coho salmon. Aside from a fishing dock and boat ramp, the park also features several hiking trails, a children’s playground, and a small sandy beach.
Winchester Bay campers can stock up on grocery supplies in one of the town’s supermarkets, with gas stations also available if you need to fill up your camper rental. There are several eateries where you can dine out, including a bakery and a handful of waterfront restaurants serving up fresh seafood.
A 90-minute drive from Winchester Bay will take you to the city of Roseburg, which serves as the seat of Douglas County. You can delve into the local history at the Douglas County Museum, designed by local architect Howard Backen and inspired by the prune drying buildings that were once prevalent throughout the Umpqua Valley. Learn about the ecological diversity of Douglas County and the people who have shaped its past, then browse the unique gifts for sale in the nostalgic gift shop. On the other side of the city is the Floed-Lane House Museum, a Classical Revival residence that dates to 1854. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974 and offers an insight into the lives of Joseph Lane’s family, who lived here for generations.
Roseburg is also the starting point for the Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway, which extends for 172 miles to the Jackson County city of Gold Hill. It takes you deep into the Cascade Mountains along what’s been dubbed the “highway of waterfalls,” with plenty of spectacular cascades along the way. Stop to hike or cycle along the shores of Diamond Lake and soak up the unparalleled beauty of Crater Lake while learning about the rich history of the region’s Native Americans.
Animal lovers shouldn’t miss a visit to the Wildlife Safari, a family-friendly safari park in Winston. African elephants, cheetahs, and giraffes are just some of the animals that roam freely throughout the 600-acre reserve, and there’s a walkthrough exhibit where smaller animals are exhibited. You can get hands-on at the petting zoo and ride the Safari Village’s narrow gauge railroad, then come face-to-face with wallaroos and black swans in the Australian Walkabout exhibit.
