Roaring River Group Campground

Area Status: Open

Campers at Roaring River Group Campground enjoy the soothing sounds of the aptly named Roaring River flowing past their campsites. The campground is tucked in among Douglas fir, maple and alder just a few feet from the river on the east bank and can accommodate up to 50 overnight visitors. Roaring River provides picnic tables, dumpsters, vault toilets and campfire pits. No water is provided so campers are expected to bring their own. Parking fits up to 10 vehicles.

Fishing and hiking are a few of the best ways to spend the day here. The nearby Three Sisters Wilderness offers plenty of trails to explore.
