The park will be closed to camping and day use through at least September 30, 2020. We apologize for the disruption. Due to a revenue shortfall, we don’t have enough staff to keep all parks open this summer. Please consider visiting an open park — a complete list is on our status map, and details about this decision are on the COVID-19 response page.
The information below pertains to pre-COVID-19 operations.


Alfred A. Loeb State Park, known simply as "Loeb" by the locals, is nestled in a dense grove of Myrtlewood trees, many of which are more than 200 years old. The trees give off a crisp, eucalyptus-like fragrance. The pristine Chetco River runs clean and clear along the southeast edge of the park.  This is a particularly quiet park as it is located away from town and industry - by 10 p.m. most folks are in bed listening to the nightly chorus of owls.

Several campsites and three rental cabins face this scenic river.  During the year, you can fish, swim and raft, or walk the self-guided Riverview nature trail. The river offers some of the finest fall and winter salmon and steelhead fishing on the south coast. You can plunk from the bank or try your luck on a drift boat. Throughout spring and summer you may see scampering squirrels, soaring osprey, or a family of river otters frolicking in the water.

The northern-most redwood grove in the U.S. can be found at the end of the Riverview Trail by crossing the North Bank Road and hiking the 1-mile U.S. Forest Service Redwood loop.
