The North Umpqua River runs adjacent to the campground and drains portions of the western side of the Cascade Range.

Natural Features

Visitors to the 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 that provides spectacular scenery as well as an abundance of natural and cultural resources.

The translation of the word "Umpqua" meaning "thundering waters," defines the area. High mountain lakes, heart-stopping rapids, peaceful ponds and thundering waterfalls, including the 272-foot Watson Falls on the North Umpqua Highway, offer visitors plenty of pastimes. 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 and thrive.

Nearby Attractions

Opportunities for hiking and mountain biking are within 10 miles of the campground. Visitors may also want to take some time to visit nearby Crater Lake National Park, the only national park in Oregon! The amazing Crater Lake area offers a glimpse into the volcanic history of the area. Experience 172 miles of diverse river and mountain landscapes along the Rogue-Umpqua National Scenic Byway. Travel from rolling oak-covered hills and towering coniferous forests, amid some of the most unique geologic features.
