About Hard Rock Campground

Hard Rock Campground is a small, primitive group site along the South Fork of the McKenzie River in Oregon. Many hiking trails are available in the surrounding area and the river offers fishing opportunities.

Recreation

The river offers good catch-and-release fishing for wild redside and cutthroat trout. Cougar Reservoir is open to motorized boating and offers a beautiful setting.

Facilities

The campground offers one tent-only group campsite that can accommodate up to 10 people. No water or electricity is available at Hard Rock. Campfire rings, picnic tables, portable toilets and trash collection are provided.

Natural Features

The campground sits just south of Cougar Reservoir, near where Balm Creek feeds into the South Fork, at an elevation of 1,800 feet. Hard Rock is set on the western slopes of the Cascade Mountains, where gorgeous, lush mountain landscapes abound.

Nearby Attractions

Just east of Cougar Reservoir, the Castle Rock Trail leads through a dense Douglas-fir forest to the top of Castle Rock. Once on top, hikers enjoy impressive views of the McKenzie River Valley below.
