“Quiet campground ”

Reviewed Jul 12, 2018

Overall Rating

Nice quiet campground about 30 min from Crater Lake. 1 pull through spot but not a lot of shade, most of the sites will accept larger units. We stayed in site 20, very well shaded. We are in a 44’ coach and pull a Ford F-150 and had no problem. I would definitely unhook the toad the next time before driving down the gravel road!!!!! It... more

Wow!! Don’t be intimidated by the washboard access road - just drive slowly and you will be rewarded. 20 sites but there will almost always be an available spot (per the camp host). Not all sites will fit big rigs but about half will. Our 36ft class A did fine! We found a spot with some sun to let our solar panels work for us :) ... more

We stayed a week, next door, at Collier Memorial State Park which was amazing but Collier was booked solid for the Memorial Day Weekend so Plan B. We woke early Friday morning and quickly packed up and headed over to Williamson River Campground expecting it to fill up quickly. To our surprise there were only 2 sites taken and about ... more

This campground was our Plan B for this trip, a five-day boondocker we have been planning for awhile. Our first choice was smoked out (wildfire just to the west) and very buggy, so we came here. A little smoky, bugs were not bad, and plenty of spaces even arriving on a Friday afternoon. Good spacing between sites, although there were s... more

Unless you need hookups, Williamson River NFS campground is an excellent alternative to the popular Collier Memorial State Park right next door. We’ve stayed at Collier before, but decided this trip to check out Williamson River and we’re so glad we did! There was some washboarding on the gravel road mentioned in other reviews but it ... more

Most of the other reviewers covered the pros and cons well, we just wanted to add current cell reception, since it had been over a year since someone reviewed this campground. We had planned to stay at Collier State Park Campground, we even had reservations. However, after driving through it, we decided it was way too crowded and i... more

“The Epitome of What a National Forest Campground Should Be!”

Reviewed May 20, 2016

Overall Rating

First, let me get the only minor negatives out of the way. The 1.5 mile dirt entrance road is washboarded badly enough to make it unpleasant to drive a motorhome on, and there is some distant train & highway noise occasionally. That said, the road is probably enough of a barrier to entry that many people might skip this spot, making it... more

Nearby Collier State Park is where most folks want to go but this NFS campground just a mile or two away is no slouch. Located near the Williamson River and nestled in a Ponderosa Pine forest it is a nice, relaxing spot to hang out for a few days. The campsites are spacious and relatively far apart. It's a 2 mile gravel road of the... more

Although you need only to drive 1 1/2 miles on a dirt washboard road from Hwy 97, this beautiful US Forest Campground is pretty isolated. There are only 20 campsites and most of them were empty during our visit in August, Sites are huge and can easily accommodate a large diesel pusher or fifth wheel. The Fremont-Winema National Forest ... more
