South Umpqua Falls Group Camping

Like a little taste of Yosemite tucked away in the Umpqua Valley, South Umpqua Falls Campground is an open meadow campground surrounded by timber.  With 20 campsites, 3 vault toilets, and grey water waste sumps so you can easily dispose of dirty water, this campground has the space and amenities  needed for family and group camping.

Across the road is the picturesque South Umpqua Falls Picnic Area, where you can see the South Umpqua River cascade fifteen feet over a wide slab of bedrock, learn about Chinook salmon, and occasionally spot a bald eagle flying overhead.


  • 19 campsites with picnic tables and fire pits 
  • No drinking water
  • 3 vault toilets
  • Grey water waste sumps
  • Garbage disposal
