Overview

Jim Creek Group Campground provides your group with a peaceful camping experience on the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest.

Natural Features:

This campground is very secluded and is set in an old growth grove of Douglas-fir trees adjacent to Abbott Creek. Abbott Creek, a tributary of the Rogue River, offers a sandy beach and swimming and wading during hot summer days.

Recreation:

A popular day use area with access to the Upper Rogue River Trail is just a few minutes away. This trail traverses the scenic section of the upper Rogue River and provides fishing access in many places. A managed off-highway vehicle (OHV) trail system with two play areas and an OHV friendly campground are within a few minutes’ drive of this group campground.

Facilities:

Jim Creek Group Campground is a rustic site with limited amenities. The campground accommodates tents only and up to 40 people. Picnic tables and campfire rings are available as well as a vault toilet just a short hike down the trail set away from the camp area. No water or garbage service is available.

Nearby Attractions:

Visit Crater Lake National Park and learn about its unique natural and cultural history. At a depth of 1,943 feet, Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States and one of the ten deepest lakes in the world.

Experience 172 miles of river and mountain landscapes along the Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway. Travel from rolling oak-covered hills and towering coniferous forests, to roaring white water rapids and incised inter-canyon lava flows. The highway travels alongside the Upper Rogue and North Umpqua Wild and Scenic Rivers that contain world-class fisheries.
