Dispersed campsites for tents or small trailers on a large river bar by the beautiful Wild and Scenic Chetco River. Enjoy summer fun in the crystal clear waters of this outstanding river. A few shaded spots can be found along the tree line. Camping on the gravel bar during the winter months is discouraged due to the frequency of high water events.
