Nestled in the cool, quiet forest beside crystal clear Brice Creek, Lund Park is the perfect place for slow mornings spent drinking coffee, days spent exploring Brice Creek Trail just across the footbridge on the western side of camp, and nights being lulled to sleep by the sound of water.
Lund Park also has a rich history—the campground was once a stopover for miners traveling from Cottage Grove to the Bohemia Mining Area. During the early 1900s, Lund Park consisted of a post office, hotel, dam, power house and several other small buildings. Most of the structures were reclaimed by the forest, but near campsite one, beneath a thriving layer of moss and lichen, you can still see the remains of a single concrete foundation.

Lovely campground. Cheap, secluded and a favorite. No running water, but 2 vault toilets. Great creek access with tressel creek falls nearby.
Great, it is very minimalist. 2 vault toilets, no water, and if you get the right site you can't see or really hear your neighbors. Easy Access to the Brice creek trail, and the Tressel creek falls. Also there is gold panning allowed in the creek.
We stayed in a pretty secluded part of the campground, separated from other campers by dense thickets of forest. The grounds we're pretty well maintained, and the camp site we were at was large. it looked big enough to put 2 tents up and be able to still have a comfortable amount of room for activities. Not to mention the trees, the underbrush, and the wildlife was all absolutely stunning. I recommend going down to the Creek if you get a chance too. Clear, pristine water, and a few areas for swimming if you decide.
Lund park is located on Brice creek rd, past Dorena lake in Oregon. It's a ways out there, which is nice if you're trying to get away from it. This campground is only 8 bucks a nigh; walk up. For that price you don't get any amenities, other than two rather old pit toilets located on the far ends of the grounds and trash bins. It is very small, about 8 sites, and the spots were decently far apart on the inlet road, but then the inner spots were right on top of each other. The campground is right on Brice creek, so it is nice that you can hear the creek, but I didn't see much for access to the creek from the grounds itself.
The best part of this campground, is it has direct access to the brice creek trail that follows the creek. If you follow the trail upstream you come across the trailhead for trestle creek falls. This is an easy to moderate 5 mile loop that goes by two amazing falls, with a nice scramble behind one of them. This is one of my, and many others favorite falls hike nearby Eugene, so expect it to be busy weekends during the season.
I wasn't impressed overall with this campground, but liked that it had access to the trail system. Great to use if you wanna make a weekend of it and not have to drive straight home after hiking. There are also some other campgrounds nearby that I think are better.
