Paradise Campground

Paradise lives up to its name.

Originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, it offers a rare opportunity to camp in the middle of a lush, old growth grove of Douglas fir and western red cedar while viewing the McKenzie River's famous white water.

A number of campsites are on the river's edge, perfect for watching passing rafters while other campsites are tucked back into the woods.
