We did not camp at Tugman, rather used it as a rest stop while touring the Reedsport-North Bend area. Very dog-friendly, with all the usual amenities. Great place to stop and exercise both dogs and humans.

This park and lake ate great places to visit. Kayaking on the lake is relaxing and beautiful. The park had a lot of information about fishing and great facilities for a gathering or picnic
