Cleator Bend Group Campground
Cleator Bend Group Campground, located on a bend of the Breitenbush River, is a popular destination for river runners and camping lovers alike. The group area provides an ideal base camp for fishing, hiking, biking and more. A vault toilet is located in the middle of the camping loop and two water spigots are provided. Trash collection, campfire circles and picnic tables are provided. Additionally, firewood is sold on-site. The capacity for the group site is 45 guests.
The Breitenbush River is a popular spot for wading, swimming and rainbow trout fishing. The South Breitenbush Gorge Trail is three miles from the campground. Here, hikers can view the river passing through basalt narrows. During the hike, look for a log footbridge that crosses Roaring Creek's cascading waters.
