Dillon Creek Campground sits along its namesake creek in the lush forests of northern California. Visitors enjoy a variety of water sports on the nearby Klamath River.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated in a forest of mixed hardwoods and conifers at an elevation of 1,780 feet. The Klamath River, a popular site for salmon fishing, runs alongside the site.

Freshwater marshes in the upper basin provide homes for thousands of migratory birds, and a variety of wildlife makes its home around the campground.


The Klamath and Salmon Rivers offer excellent fishing, swimming and whitewater rafting opportunities.

Fishing for salmon and steelhead during the fall and early winter months is considered the finest in California. Hunting is also a popular pastime, with game including Columbian blacktail deer, black bear, blue grouse and valley and mountain quail.


This campground has several single-family campsites, all equipped with picnic tables and campfire rings with grills. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. A host is on-site, and roads throughout the campground are paved.
