We only stayed one night so we stayed near the entrance. I believe there are 64 sites. The Highway noise was not bad. If you want solitude take a site near the river. Bigger Rigs could have a problem navigating the big trees.
Wonderful helpful hosts, water close by and super clean toilets.

We spent one night here as we were traveling between Portland and Klamath Falls. The site is really in the middle of the forest and it surrounds you! The river is right beside the campgrounds and if you are here for more than one night, do try and get a site by the river. If you are further away from the river, you will be close to the main highway and the noise from the road can be a bit loud. We slept fine, but the traffic was noticeable from our site. People who stayed by the river said that the river noise drowned out the traffic noise and it was good.

There are no amenities where we stayed and cell phone service was not available.

The campgrounds were clean and the host was very helpful.

Bald and golden eagles were easily spotted fishing along the river. They were very aggressive about taking fish from Osprey! Quite the battle. Short but intense!

Salmon, steelhead and trout were reported in the river.
