Overview

Lone Pine Group Campground is adjacent to Rock Creek, a tributary of the North Umpqua River. Lone Pine is situated at the site of the old Rock Creek sawmill that once operated in the 1930s thru the 1950s.

The campground is a short drive from the Umpqua National Forest, which boasts incredible glacier-cut mountain slopes across 984,602 acres of forest.

The name, Umpqua, is a surviving term of the Native American Umpqua language, and is believed to mean "thundering waters," "across the waters" or "satisfied."

Recreation

Hiking picnicking and relaxing are the primary activities at the campground. In summer, swimming in the cool creek is a refreshing treat. In spring and fall, salmon and steelheads come upriver to spawn.

To protect valuable native runs of salmon and steelhead, Rock Creek is closed to anglers. Instead, head to the North Umpqua River for abundant fishing opportunities.

A drive along the Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway yields gorgeous views of mountain peaksforested canyons and alpine lakes.

Facilities

The campground is built on a loop with eleven separate sites to give large groups the option for privacy. It fits up to 110 campers and offers a volleyball court, horseshoe pits and use of a pavilion.

Across the way is a baseball field that can be reserved for day use by renting the Millpond Pavilion.

Natural Features

Lone Pine is on the western edge of the Cascade Mountains, set along Rock Creek, which eventually flows into the North Umpqua River. Majestic fir, cedar and hemlock trees dominate the mountainous region.

Nearby Attractions

Visitors can get their adventure-fix with kayaking and whitewater rafting in the North Umpqua River or mountain biking and hiking adventures along the 79-mile long North Umpqua Trail--both are just five miles away.

The nearby Rock Creek Fish Hatchery is an educational destination, where families can feed rainbow trout and observe Steelhead and salmon. A trip to nearby Crater Lake National Park is another "can't miss" destination.
