Salmon Creek Falls Campground

This campground is on Salmon Creek in the Willamette National Forest four miles east of Oakridge. There are 15 sites for tents, trailers, or RVs up to 20 feet, with picnic tables, fire grills, hand-pumped water, and vault toilets. Open late April to mid-Oct.

To get there: Follow Highway 58 east to Oakridge. Turn left at the signal to downtown. From downtown, follow Salmon Creek Road (FS Road 24) for 6 miles to Salmon Creek Falls Campground.

The major activities at this camp include camping, picnicking, fishing, swimming, bicycling, hiking, kayaking and hunting.

In addition to three Day Use Areas, this campground is located in a lush old growth forest right along Salmon Creek. The rocky gorge-like area creates two small beautiful waterfalls and several deep pools which reflect the clear blue-green waters. Springtime brings a full range of wildflowers along the rocky banks as well as in the woods and meadows. Wild thimbleberries and hazelnuts abound in the summer. In the years past, Salmon Creek supplied water for the City of Oakridge. The remains of some old wooden, wire-wrapped water pipes can still be seen. Today, the area is a favorite recreation spot for local residents as well as some more distant travelers.

Disabled access includes: restroom, viewpoint, four campsites, two picnic tables, paved access routes.

Contact the Middle Fork Ranger District for more information.
