Situated within an old-growth forest on a terrace above the Middle Fork of the Willamette River, this 17 site family-friendly camp is generally quiet even on weekends during the height of the recreation season.
The Middle Fork National Recreation Trail passes near the camp and offers adventures for hikers, equestrians, and off-road cyclists. Campers can explore two access trails that lead from the camp down to the Middle Fork of the Willamette River.
