Overview

The North Umpqua Wild and Scenic River pauses at Toketee reservoir providing a secure home for a wide variety of wildlife. Here beaver and otter make their homes. Visitors are sometimes treated to seeing and hearing the beaver's tail slaps. Great blue heron and kingfishers are joined in fall and winter by ducks, geese, and bald eagles.

Recreation

Many people enjoy some of the state’s best German Brown trout fishing. Due to ongoing dam repair Toketee Lake is 2-3 feet lower than the boat ramp, so small non-powered boats are best. Toketee group site is located next to one of the trailheads for the famous North Umpqua Trail. This trail is a favorite for hikers, bikers, and horseback riders.

Facilities

Toketee group site offers a small pavilion with two tables and a large grill. Next to the pavilion is a large, open grass area for tent camping. Parking for the site doubles as the RV campsites. This area’s surface is graveled and is big and fairly level. With room for both tent campers and RV campers, this group site is able to accommodate most events. Near the group site is Toketee Campground which has some sites available on a first-come, first served basis. Should your group need more space, this campground may help with those needs. There is no water available at the group site or the Toketee campground.

Natural Features

This group site offers a picturesque spot for small groups to gather. Lined with willow and mixed with maples and alders, this section of the river is very tranquil. The nearby footbridge offers great views of the river and lake.

Nearby Attractions

There are two spectacular waterfalls within a five-minute drive of the site. Watson Falls is 272 feet high and has a short trail to the base of the falls. During wetter months, be prepared to get a cool shower of fresh mountain water. Toketee Falls is an amazing two level falls flowing out of a basalt column wall. The viewing platform is less than a half mile down the trail. For faster paced recreation, there is the North Umpqua Trail. This is a very popular trail for mountain biking. Many bikers use Toketee as a base camp for exploring the North Umpqua Trail.
