Coquille Myrtle Grove will bring out the Huckleberry Finn in you. Located along the Powers Highway, this secluded swimming hole has a shaded myrtlewood grove near the parking area and a sandy beach along the Coquille River just a short way down the hill. Bring your innertube and float along with the river's gentle current. No drinking water at site.
The land was given to the state for park purposes by Save the Myrtlewoods, Inc. in 1950. Containing a stand of old Oregon myrtle trees, the tract lies along the south fork of the Coquille River and is occasionally flooded by high water.
