Camp Comfort Campground


Area Status: Temporarily Closed
Camp Comfort, Tiller

Near the Upper South Umpqua, Camp Comfort is perfect for camping, swimming, picnicking, and hiking. Large old-growth cedar and fir trees provide shade to campers, while rhododendron are a burst of color in the spring.

Camp Comfort serves as the trailhead for Camp Comfort Trail #1586, a short but rewarding trail that leads to a rocky outcrop overlooking the beginning of the South Umpqua River. Deer Lick Falls Trail #1568, another short trail that leads to a popular swimming hole in the spring and summer, is a quick two-miles up Road 28.

  • Camp Comfort Trail is a 0.25-mile accessible trail that leads to the beginning of the South Umpqua River at the confluence of Black Rock Fork and Castle Rock Fork. This flat trail is easily accessible for approximately the first half; following that, it gets a little more difficult, narrowing and becoming rocky with occasional jutting roots.
