With access to a multitude of recreational opportunities, including ball fields, river access and a handful of trailheads within the area, this campsite offers an ideal setting for group camping and recreation excursions.

Natural Features:

Visitors to Umpqua National Forest are often taken aback by the unique landscapes of southwestern Oregon. Explosive geologic events have shaped the distinctive landscape on the nearly 1 million-acre forest, and provide spectacular scenery as well as an abundance of natural and cultural resources.

Flowing adjacent to this campground is the North Umpqua River, a tributary of the Umpqua River, and a designated National Wild and Scenic River. Possessing remarkable values related to wildlife, culture, recreation and scenery, the North Umpqua River is renowned for its emerald green waters and fly fishing.

Several designated wilderness areas provide undisturbed solitude for visitors. Encompassing 19,100 acres, Boulder Creek Wilderness offers dense old-growth forests and steep terrain that tower above Boulder Creek, which runs through the heart of the wilderness.

Diverse ecosystems support a wide range of habitat for wildlife common to the area. From eagles and owls, to salamanders and salmon, these species, along with many others, depend on surrounding undeveloped wilderness, clean streams, and diverse forests to live.


Fishing, hiking and swimming top the list of activities at this site. With open spaces, ball fields and horseshoe pits, this campground offers visitors plenty of recreational opportunities.

A forested bank and mountainous backdrop of the North Umpqua River is a perfect setting for both swimmers braving its cold, refreshing waters, and for anglers fishing for rainbow, steelhead and cutthroat trout.

Picnic shelters and large grills by the river provide the perfect setting for gathering after a day of activity or relaxation.


This campground has one large reservable group site, able to accommodate up to 100 people, and a maximum of 20 vehicles.

The site is equipped with picnic tables, campfire rings, grills and accessible vault toilets..

Baseball fields, horseshoe pits and picnic shelters available for use.
