Visited Collier in August. Temperature was nice. A little dry and dusty this time of year. Great rivers close by, nice hiking trails. Restrooms open and clean. Quiet during weekdays.
We were here July 4-7 and it was pretty busy at first - loud - however it cleared out Sunday and was a very nice stay. Not a lot of room between sites but large enough for our three tents plus a canopy over the picnic table so I think that’s the trade off. The Williamson river is so beautiful and a short walk from our site. Very cold, couldn’t swim but said to be excellent for fishing. There is a trail alongside it for an easy walk, (3 mi I think?) a pioneer exhibit that my parents really liked, and very clean bathrooms. Oh and the chipmunks are crazy.
We stayed here at the recommendation of a friend—2 nights. Very clean bathrooms and unlimited showers. We stayed in a tenting site, with our mini Meerkat trailer, off the grid. Lots of bold chipmunks. Near the junction to go to Crater Lake, which we did as a day trip, about 45 minutes each way. Small grocery store in nearby Chiloquin. The campground is near the highway, and you can hear traffic occasionally, but there are a number of hiking trails (easy) and you can get down to the cold, clear river.
Great park not too far off the highway, only complaint is that the sites are slightly too close together. The staff are very nice and the bathrooms are very clean.
A very fun campground that only seems to be busy around the summer months. Bathrooms are nice and campsites include a fire pit and picnic bench. People seemed to be very friendly and social. Nearby is the logging museum which is free to the public and open regular hours.
Really nice park off of hwy 97. It has a neat museum and the facilities were clean. There is a neat clear creek is just down the road and has trails to explore. There were people kayaking on the creek. Lots of places available to park and it was a little crowded but still a nice park.
We felt our campsite was plenty big enough for our 30 ft. trailer, chairs, dog, and equipment. The chipmunks are everywhere and will steal food. Our dog was quite annoyed.
Follow the walking trail to the logging museum. Logging equipment, buildings, train cars (all outdoors) with guided tours and a gift shop. The nearby river is small and beautiful.
This campground is beautiful! Walking distance to the river and logging museum. Logging museum is huge and worth a visit. River is clear and beautiful. Sites are clean and nice. Tent and RV sires available. Beware of the Chipmunks! They are everywhere and for some reason people life the goods to protect their cars. Some spaces can be tricky for large RVs.
Collier State Park is a typically nice Oregon State park, with the benefit that there's often spaces open only a few days out that you can book online and just 30 miles from Crater Lake. There's enough to keep kids busy for a day or so, including the free logging museum across the road. Clean bathrooms and showers and tons of rangers/employees getting sites ready, picking up litter etc. Prices were great, just $19 for tent sites and $29 for a full RV hook-up, including a few pull-through spots, plus flush toilets and showers. On our recent road trip in a 32-foot RV, this was probably the best deal of anywhere we went. For a state park, though, spots were right on top of each other, with very little in terms of privacy.
- Nice, well maintained facilities
- Good deal, especially for RVs with hook-ups.
- Spots felt very crowded and on top of each other.
- Horrible mosquitoes kept us inside the RV in the evening.
Very well maintained camp, with friendly helpful host! Even with a spot very near the restrooms it was rather quiet and peaceful. Showers were nice and hot and the shower area and bathroom provided a plug which was nice to quickly blow dry my hair. The logging museum was a pretty walk across the river and very interesting. At &T phone service was spotty, though enough to keep in contact with loved ones and for emergencies. Stayed only one night, tent camping.
