This quiet, 19 site, family-friendly camp is located in a lush, mature Douglas-fir/vine maple/sword fern forest alongside the North Fork of the Middle Fork Willamette Wild and Scenic River. The campground sits off Forest Service Road 19 (also known as the Aufderheide Drive), which is a portion of the 220-mile long West Cascades Scenic Byway.
Popular recreational activities in this area include driving the West Cascades Scenic Byway, fishing, and road cycling Aufderheide Drive. Nearby, the North Fork Trail is popular for hiking and mountain cycling.
Please note that special fishing regulations apply to the North Fork of the Middle Fork Willamette River. Please consult the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife for the most up-to-date information.
