Recreation

Wading and fishing are popular activities in the Breitenbush River, and rainbow trout is the most common catch for anglers.

The Willamette National Forest has about 1,700 miles of trail. While many are in wilderness areas, a number of trails are low-elevation, easy-access trails for year-round hiking.

Facilities

This campground has 29 sites, 18 are reservable, and all have picnic tables, grills and easy access to the vault toilets. Drinking water spigots are spread throughout the campground. Most campsites offer sweeping views of the river.

Natural Features

The campground lies in the Willamette National Forest, which stretches for 110 miles along the western slopes of the Cascade Range. The varied landscape of high mountains, narrow canyons, cascading streams and wooded slopes offer varied recreational opportunities for visitors. The Breitenbush River is a tributary of the North Santiam River, and its clean waters flow from snow melt in the Mount Jefferson Wilderness. A variety of plants and foliage separate the spacious campsites and provide privacy from other sites.

Nearby Attractions

Detroit Lake provides plenty of opportunity for water recreation like boating, water skiing and kayaking.
