Nice little campground located within the Opal Creek Scenic Recreation Area, along the Little North Fork of the Santiam River. Numerous trails within a short distance of the campground offer scenic mountain vistas, waterfalls, and hikes through old-growth forests. Three Pools Day Use Site is also nearby
The campground is open year-round but access is dependent on road conditions. In the winter the road can become impassable, as it is not maintained for snow and ice. Early season (April and May) may provide a wet experience, but late season (September and October) is usually great times for camping.
No water available but one vault toilet that was clean. Sites are too small for RVs so tent camping only.
