Relax after a full day of hiking or biking to the sound of the river at this beautiful and quiet 12 site campground on the South Fork of the McKenzie River. Douglas fir, rhododendron, and vine maple surround this serene retreat. The facility has vaulted toilets, fire rings, picnic tables, garbage collection, and hand-pumped drinking water.

Opportunities abound in this beautiful forest setting for hiking, biking, fishing, swimming and nature viewing. The Three Sisters Wilderness Area, Box Canyon Trail, Mink Lake Basin Trail, Box Canyon Horse Camp, Terwilliger Hot Springs, and Cougar Lake Reservoir are of the many assets to this area.
