Fernview Group Campground

Area Status: Closed
This area is Closed

The 11 campsites at Fernview Group Site are perched high above a scenic portion of the South Santiam River which makes for a beautiful view. Fernview was originally a campground that has been converted to a group site. Individual campsites are available on a first-come, first-served basis when group campground is not reserved. Every site has a picnic table and fire pit/grill. There is a parking area adjacent to the bathroom that can also be used for RV parking; this area is suitable for 1 large or 2 small RV’s, maximum 2 RV's. One hand pump provides water and there is a newer single CXT toilet on site.

River access can be difficult from the campground, but is nearby via a short walk or drive. The Rooster Rock Trailhead across Highway 20 is a portal to the Menagerie Wilderness. The Old Santiam Wagon Road runs through the back of the campground.
