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.
Nice classic Oregon state park with all the requisite facilities of electric hook-ups, RV dump station, ranger programs. Amphitheater and showers. Camp sites a little on top of each other, especially in comparison to the nearby Williamson River Campground, but still a very nice and popular camp site near Crater Lake and Klamath Falls.
Across the highway there's the "Collier State Park Logging Museum" which we didn't get a chance to get to but looked like a lot of fun.
Ranger review: Leatherman OHT at Collier Memorial State park , Or.
Collier State park is located off of Hwy 97 about 20 miles north of Klamath falls and approximately 25 miles from the southeast entrance of Crater Lake N.P.
This campground is moderately sized with about 40 hookup sites and 20 tent only sites. The tent sites were $19 and the rv $22. It is set into the woods a bit off of the Hwy, but unfortunately you can still hear the Hwy noise (Jake brakes), even at night. There were also a couple trains that came nearby at night and a few planes as well. I stayed Friday through Sunday, so these issues may increase during the week. Not a huge deal, unless you are looking for a more remote campground with peace and quiet.
I stayed @ site A25 on the inner ring. I suggest trying to get a site on the outer ring. Some of those are just off the river with private trail access. The inner sites don't allow for as much privacy and are very close the bathrooms.
Down the easy 1mi. trail along the spring creek, they have a super cool old pioneer village and lumber museum. It's full of olde tyme cabins and era timber industry tools and equipment. They even offer a wagon ride pulled by an old Cat-30, for free, and in June they do a reenactment of the time period in costume and all.
Collier also offers many programs to keep the youngens and young at heart busy, very family friendly. There was wood sales, potable water pumps and clean, HOT powerful showers as well.
As a ranger I get to test products from time to time and give my feedback. This is my review of the #Leatherman OHT.
This tool is great!!
It has all of the secondary tools that my Swiss army doesn't, allowing me to be prepared for whatever comes. It has a nice retractable design, instead of the old fold style Leatherman, which allows for easy one handed operation.
The pliers have a spring load so it is easy on the palms. I used them to fix the zipper pull on my backpack, worked well.
You do not need to open the main tool to use the secondary. This makes for a great handle on any of the tools you are using.
All the blades are made with 420HC stainless steel, and are super sharp. I have used it to cut sticks to size with the saw, and widdle/ sharpen sticks with the standard blade, it keeps an edge nicely. I didn't get a chance to use the wire cutters, but it has hard and soft wire cutters and they are replaceable. It also comes with Phillips and flathead screwdrivers, seatbelt cutter and can opener.
I highly recommend this specific Leatherman as it has many of the tools any average or pro camper would need.
