Nestled on the banks of the McKenzie River and Olallie Creek, Olallie Campground provides 16 sites with a superb setting for a getaway into nature. The lower loop offers mesmerizing views of both the river and the creek while the upper loop is set further in the trees with many sites facing the creek. No electric hookups are available at the campground. Picnic tables, vault toilets and drinking water are among the amenities available. A camp host is on-site, and firewood is available for purchase.
Fishing, rafting and swimming are three top activities in the river. Picnicking is also a lot of fun at the campground. Nearby is the McKenzie Pass Trail Area with incredible hikes around lakes, overlooking cliffs, and trailing along craters and valleys.
Know Before You Go: This campground is in central Oregon near McKenzie Bridge on the Willamette National Forest. There is another "Olallie" near Mt. Hood, Oregon.
