Don’t Trust the Internet

Per Allstays app this campground can fit up to 60 ft rigs. NO! We attempted to drive through with our 26ft Class C and it was tight and awkward. The first section right after the bridge and to the right was all we could get to, straight across the bridge the road heads uphill for more sites which…

Beautiful, easy access to water, shady

This is a wonderful campground.  Every spot is stellar.  Some are right on the water while others boast a stunning view.  Lots of wildlife to chirp you awake and provide entertainment.  The river access is easy and in lots of spots.

We will definitely be coming back!

Secluded campsites in a lush forest

This was one of the most beautiful campgrounds I’ve visited. My site was quite secluded, I could only occasionally see people walking along the camp road. Vault toilets were kept clean and a well water pump was available for clean drinking water.

About This Campground

Overview

House Rock Campground is perched on the confluence of Sheep Creek and the South Santiam River in an old growth forest grove.

Campers enjoy hiking the House Rock Trail, which starts at the day-use area. Part of the trail shares paths with the historic Santiam Wagon Road, a trail used to transport livestock east across the Cascade Mountains to central Oregon's grasslands.

Recreation

Swimming is popular, especially because many sites have riverfront access to shallow swimming areas. Anglers can cast for native cutthroat trout.

In addition to the House Rock Trail, hikers have access to a variety of other trails in the Tombstone Pass Area, like the Iron Mountain Trail.

Facilities

The campground road and parking spurs are composed of packed dirt and rock. The double-loop area comes with accessible vault toilets and drinking water from hand pumps. Picnic tables, campfire rings and grills are at each site. Firewood is sold through the Linn County Park staff.

Natural Features

House Rock Campground is perched on the confluence of Sheep Creek and the South Santiam River in an old growth grove.

The river is a 66-mile tributary of the Santiam River that is fed by snowmelt from the Cascade Mountains.

Nearby Attractions

Visit Foster Lake or Green Peter Lake for lake fishing and boating.
