The translation of the word "Umpqua," meaning "thundering waters," defines the area. High mountain lakes, heart stopping rapids, peaceful ponds and thundering waterfalls, including the beautiful Toketee Falls, offer visitors plenty to see and do.

Great location on the N.Umpqua. We used this as home base for our Crater Lake exploration weekend. One of the most diverse campgrounds I’ve experienced. Drinking water, flush toilet, hot shower and very friendly and knowledgeable Camp Host. 11 spots that are spacious and even though you’re right off the highway it feels secluded and is very quiet overnight. Access to boat launch and recreation area on N.Umpqua. 5 miles away from put-in site for boat/kayak tours. 11 nearby waterfalls to easily access and explore- such a gem of a campsite!
The campground was crowded when we were staying here. Some sites were more secluded than others. Our site was right on the road which offered little privacy. The host was very helpful and provided brochures for the different waterfalls to be seen in the area.
We have stayed here a few times. It is right on a main road so, while it's easy to see, there can be some road noise. There's flush toilets and running water available. It wasn't very expensive. It's close to a lot of great waterfall hikes and I'd you're feeling really adventurous, I think some of the trails behind the campground even meet up with some of those great waterfall trails.
