About Olallie on McKenzie Highway
Nestled on the banks of the McKenzie River and Olallie Creek, Olallie Campground provides an superb setting for a getaway into nature. The lower loop offers mesmerizing views of both the river and the creek while the upper loop is set further in the trees with many sites facing the creek. The McKenzie River is a tributary of the Willamette River that runs for 90 miles, flowing into into the southernmost end of the Willamette Valley. Natural Features: Olallie Campground is located in the midsection of the Cascades mountain range in western Oregon. All campgrounds are nicely shaded by Douglas fir, maple and alder. The Willamette National Forest stretches for 110 miles with varied landscapes of high mountains, narrow canyons, cascading streams, and wooded slopes. Recreation: Fishing, rafting and swimming are three top activities in the river. Picnicking is also a lot of fun at the campground. Nearby is the McKenzie Pass Trail Area with incredible hikes around lakes, overlooking cliffs, and trailing along craters and valleys. Among these trails is the high elevation Obsidian Trail which accesses the Pacific Crest Trail and the Obsidian Area of the Three Sisters Wilderness. Facilities: The campground is divided into two loops along the eastern banks of the river by Olallie Creek. No electric hookups are available at the campground. Picnic tables, vault toilets and drinking water are among the amenities available. A camp host is on-site, and firewood is available for purchase. ACTIVITIES Fishing Hiking: Hiking Trail

Quaint campground on Olallie Creek

My family and I stayed three nights at this campground on Labor Day weekend. Surprisingly, it was not very busy and many campsites were open (this may have been due to the campfire ban). The upper loop that we camped at is right next to the highway, and we heard road noise throughout the day and night. The lower loop is on the McKenzie River, which we could hear rushing by and it gave a nice amount of white noise. There is good access to local attractions such as Clear Lake and the Blue Pool hike. I would not recommend it if you don’t like road noise or want to feel more remote.
