Williamson River Campground

Area Status: Open
Lower Williamson River

The Williamson River Campground is conveniently located just off Highway 97 about five minutes north of Chiloquin, Oregon. There are 19 campsites with picnic tables, fire grates, three vault toilets, and two hand pumps round out the amenities at this campground. One campsite is ADA accessible.

Ponderosa pines and sagebrush populate the landscape and contrast with the crystal clear Williamson River. Due to its close proximity to the highway, this is a popular campground. You can mountain bike on miles of Forest Service roads, go fishing, or explore day hikes opportunities.

Situated next to the popular Collier State Park, there is a 1.3 mile walking trail that connects the two campgrounds. Discover the Collier State Park Logging Museum which showcases historic logging equipment from the late 1800’s, as well as a relocated pioneer village.
