“A stunner ”

This area is almost overwhelming beautiful. Old growth forests, waterfalls, clear blue lakes and rivers. Coldwater Cove was a bit of a challenge for our 36 foot class A RV though. We did fit in our spot with plenty of room but it wasn't very level. The campground host was very nice and loaned us some more blocks. The sites are huge and well spaced out.

The roads are pretty narrow. Avoid the boat ramp area with any large rig as you won't make the turn around.

There is no cell service but you can drive four miles up the road near Fish Lake and get a workable Verizon signal.

Please note, I am basing my review on my particular site, #1, as it was a bit removed from the remainder of the campground. Far from noise, campfire smoke, kids playing, generators running, and it was about the only site in the park with a clear view of the open sky for plenty of solar.

This FS campground (half off at $10 per nt with NP Geezer Pass) is primarily in a "Reserved" status with the exception of about a third of the sites being first come/first served. As an older campground, most sites are unlevel, a bit short, and heavily treed....except for Site #1, which was perfect in every way, except....NO CELL SIGNAL!

It is steps from the glorious Clear Lake which lives up to it's name, as a quiet calm, aquamarine blue lake perfect for kayakers (no motors.) It is steps from the McKenzie River Trail, which runs 26 miles alongside the McKenzie River. And it is 1 mile from the gorgeous waterfalls trail.

I rarely, if ever, leave bandwidth behind, but I did so for five straight days, which speaks for how beautiful this place is!

No showers / dump station / threaded water spigot though....and you must drive 20 miles for the nearest wifi which is at the McKenzie Bridge General Store and Bier Garden.

Clear Lake and The McKenzie River - Away We Winnebago

We had been wanting to get back up to the McKenzie River and camp for a while to enjoy all the area has to offer. Coming back to Oregon in June from spending most of our spring out in the deserts...
