Marion Forks Campground

  

Adjacent to the Marion Forks Fish Hatchery, Marion Forks Campground is a great little campground tucked away from Highway 22 and a quiet place to relax. Enjoy a ¼ mile leisurely stroll along Marion Creek on a paved loop path through the picnic area and fish hatchery and learn about spring Chinook salmon.

Nearby, on Forest Service Road 2255, you can find the little used trail (#3431) to Independence Rock for a short hike. If you drive further up to the end of Road 2255, you'll reach the trailhead to Marion Lake (Trail #3436) leading to the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness.
