Overview

Millpond Pavilion is beautifully set along Rock Creek, which flows into the Wild and Scenic North Umpqua River. The pavilion boasts a large picnic shelter that holds up to 200 people with modern conveniences like drinking water, a sink, large grills, electrical outlets and a fireplace.

The flat grassy area is perfect for a casual game of soccer or a more special occasion, like an outdoor wedding.

In 1988 congress designated the North Umpqua River as a National Wild and Scenic River, preserving and protecting it for outdoor enthusiasts. The river is a tributary of the Umpqua River, which runs for over 200 miles from the Cascade Range of southwestern Oregon to the Pacific Ocean.

Natural Features:

Millpond is just west of the Umpqua National Forest, in a lush region full of Douglas fir trees, western red cedar and sugar pines. The pavilion is in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains at an elevation of 1,170 feet.

Recreation:

Guests can play kickball, softball or other sports in the field that's included in the pavilion reservation.

Adjacent to the pavilion are horseshoe pits and a playground to entertain young ones. From the pavilion, visitors can follow a 1-mile interpretive trail that passes through the site of an old lumber mill.

Facilities:

Weddings and family reunions are very popular at this scenic destination. The long serving counter, stone fireplace, sink, two barbecue grills and multiple electric outlets create an ideal location for many festive occasions.

If groups choose to camp overnight, they can do so at the nearby first-come, first served Millpond Campground or the reservable Lone Pine Group Campground located across the road.

Nearby Attractions:

Visitors can get their adventure fix with kayaking and whitewater rafting and fishing in the North Umpqua River, just five miles away.

The incredibly scenic 79-mile North Umpqua Trail is ideal for mountain biking and hiking. And for a family-friendly destination, the nearby Rock Creek Fish Hatchery allows visitors to view salmon and steelhead.
