This is a nice campground. We stayed 1 night and hiked to see 8 falls. Most of the hikes are easy but some are long. The falls were amazing. Check in was at 4 pm which is pretty late especially when you consider they want you to check out at 1. They seem to be short on staff and the guard we spoke to seemed annoyed with us. When we asked if they had availability for us to stay another night she said “no your site is reserved for another party”. We’re like ok it’s not that important for us to discuss options. Thanks and have a nice day. Maybe it’s the fact that the sun didn’t shine for a few days. Who knows? But we did meet lots of friendly hikers on our walks to the falls.
This place is awesome
Oregon state parks have always been heads and tails above any other states we have visited parks in. It has been about 20 years since we were in Silver Falls and I would say they have only improved. This is one of the state parks where you can make reservations and it was a good thing we did as the campground was full when we arrived. The restrooms are very clean: hot water, air dryers, large mirror. There are showers but I didn't use them so can't comment on their condition. Some of the sites have shelters; snag one of these if you can because rain can come at any time in Oregon! Trails are extensive and well marked. Definitely recommend the Trail of Ten Falls, which can be done in two separate loops. The South Falls loop attracts more families with young children while we saw very few children on the north Falls loop.
My family and I went camping here for the first time 2 years ago. We absolutely loved it! Very nice clean place. If I remember correctly, If you were camping here then you got to go to the falls and other stuff for free. That was a nice added perk not having to pay to go hike the falls! I can’t wait to go camping here again soon!
Beautiful waterfalls with many options for different lengths of hikes. Also a few nice paved bike paths.
Bbeautiful place that's great for even the smallest children.
The campground is clean, and the hike is very beautiful
First and foremost, it's all about the waterfalls - all 10 of them - linked by paved hiking trails. Not a fan of sharing the trail with hikers when on your bike? There are miles of mountain bike trails. Have horses? They have trails too. Big group? Gotcha covered. Need a snack or gift? They're here. The campground is large and well-maintained. Sites are reservable. This is a park for all ages and all seasons.
Last minute I was able to reserve a campsite here this summer. The campground was not very big and our campsite was enclosed by bushes on either side which gave a sense of privacy. The bathrooms and showers were kept very clean and we had a water spout right at the end of our camp site. The campground was a short walk from many of the parks hikes. Unfortunately we could not take our dog to lots of the falls but we did the Ridgetrail and at least we were about to see 2 of them.
Went with an ex many years ago. We stayed in one of the small cabins very close to the upper trail to the falls.I think… lol
The cabin was cozy and stayed very warm as we went in the winter. We only walked around a short ways but the snow was beautiful and it was serenely quiet.
