River Bridge Campground


Area Status: Closed

River Bridge is very small campground with limited facilities, but generous site spacing and excellent river access within walking distance. Massive Douglas-firs provide ample shade for the campsites, which is pleasant in the heat of the summer, and privacy between  most sites is provided by other vegetation. The river is wide, with several sandy areas that offer a place to sit and relax by the river.  Access to an extensive OHV trail system is nearby. The entrance to Crater Lake National Park is approximately 6 miles away, making this a great place to camp if you're interested in doing a day trip to the park. Additional day trips include the Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway with its waterfalls, and the Rogue Gorge.
