Hard Rock Campground is a small, primitive group site along the South Fork of the McKenzie River in Oregon. Many hiking trails are available in the surrounding area and the river offers fishing opportunities.
The campground offers one tent-only group campsite that can accommodate up to 10 people. No water or electricity is available at Hard Rock. Campfire rings, picnic tables, portable toilets and trash collection are provided.
FS 19 Rd/Aufderhyde Road is temporarily closed at the dam due to emergency road work. This means it cannot be accessed from Hwy 126 from the north. Terwilliger Hot Springs and the campgrounds along FS 19 Rd can be accessed from 2 alternate roads.
If you have questions on these alternate routes, call 541-854-0718 for clarification.
If you prefer to cancel, call 801-226-3564 xt 15 or email Claudia@americanLL.com.
Be sure to reserve a site that will accommodate your equipment. The site you reserve is your site. You may not move to another site.
The campground sits just south of Cougar Reservoir, near where Balm Creek feeds into the South Fork, at an elevation of 1,800 feet. Hard Rock is set on the western slopes of the Cascade Mountains, where gorgeous, lush mountain landscapes abound.
Just east of Cougar Reservoir, the Castle Rock Trail leads through a dense Douglas-fir forest to the top of Castle Rock. Once on top, hikers enjoy impressive views of the McKenzie River Valley below.
The river offers good catch-and-release fishing for wild redside and cutthroat trout. Cougar Reservoir is open to motorized boating and offers a beautiful setting.
