Wallowa Whitman National Forest, Near Union, Oregon
Buck Creek Forest Camp and Trailhead does not offer reservations through Recreation.gov. Please take a look at the area details below for more information about visiting this location. Enjoy your visit!
Located on the western side of the Eagle Cap Wilderness and very close to the wilderness boundary, the Buck Creek Campground/Trailhead was built to meet the needs of both wilderness trail users and overnight campers. After crossing the Buck Creek Bridge off the North Fork Catherine Creek Road, the narrow dirt road travels through isolated forest and towering rock cliffs to the combination campground and trailhead.
The area is also very popular for mushrooming in the Spring and berry picking in the Fall. In the late Summer and Fall, big game hunters use the site for day and extended overnight hunting trips.
