Full-Service RV Dump Station Opens at Salmon Harbor Marina


Share this article

A new, modern, full-service RV dump station has recently opened at Salmon Harbor Marina in Winchester Bay (Oregon)

According to a report, the RV dump station is situated at the north end of Salmon Harbor Marina and Ork Rock Road and is equipped with twin dump lanes with unlimited capacity.

Douglas County Commissioners Tim Freeman, Chris Boice, and Tim Kress worked with staff at the Salmon Harbor Marina on this new improvement project at Winchester Bay.

“Renovating the RV Dump Station at Salmon Harbor not only immediately enhanced the experience for dry campers and RVers by providing the total camping package, but it allowed us to prime the unused empty lot at the end of the marina for future development, which will add value and services to the community long-term,” said Boice, liaison commissioner for Salmon Harbor Marina and the Winchester Bay community.

“As commissioners, we are always thinking about how to best optimize projects like this to bring maximum benefits to the residents and travelers recreating in Douglas County.”

The station is replacing a single-lane station restricted to 25 users per day.

Boice collaborated with Salmon Harbor Marina Director Jim Zimmer, the Winchester Bay Sanitary District, and engineers from Dyer Partnership to reconfigure the previous site so the county could improve services, increase user efficiency and double the capacity for RV users, travelers, local fishermen, and marina visitors alike, a press release from Douglas County said.

Salmon Harbor Marina has access to the Umpqua River, the Umpqua River Lighthouse and Coastal History Museum, the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, the Pacific Ocean, and miles of public white-sand beaches.

The marina has 500 moorage slips with power and water, two launch ramps, a full-service fuel dock, and 124 camping sites with restroom and shower facilities.

It also operates Winchester Bay RV Resort with 138 large full hookup sites and a newly upgraded WiFi service.
