We were pleasantly surprised to find McKenzie Bridge, a small 20 site US Forest Service campground right on the bank of the McKenzie River, with a couple of sites large enough for our beast of a motorhome. Granted we needed multiple tries to get positioned just right, as pad was not level...but long enough to fit our rig and toad.

As this was a US Forest Service Campground, the nightly fee of $20.00 was reduced 50% with our Golden Age National Park Pass. However, we had to pay an additional $8.00 per night for our car that we towed in. We did advise the host that normally in all National and State Parks, if you tow your car in there is no additional vehicle charge. We then went to the McKenzie River Ranger District up to inquire about their policy and they supported the charge. We did advise them that this was the first time in the last 20 years we have ever been charged for a towed in car in a National Forest Campground, but this was their policy.

The McKenzie river is beautiful and offers an abundance of swimming, rafting, bird watching and fishing opportunities. Our site was huge and very private as trees separated our site quite well from the adjoining sites. We could walk but twenty yards to have our feet in the flowing water.

Walking through the campground we noticed that all campsites are nicely spaced and many have river access. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit. The hosts do sell firewood. All pads are gravel. Two vault toilets are within the campground as well as two drinking water pump stations. Trash bins are close to all sites. There is also a boat ramp on site to launch your kayaks or rafts. The campground and it's toilet vaults were very clean and maintained often during the day. We will definitely return.
