This campground offers excellent scenery. Although Steamboat Creek is closed to all fishing, summer visitors often see large steelhead trout attempting to jump the falls during their spawning runs. The campground is on the other side of Steamboat Creek from Steamboat Road. Towering fir trees shade the campsites, making it feel as if you are further away from the North Umpqua Highway. The trailhead for the 5.5-mile Mott segment of the North Umpqua Trail is about 6 miles southwest of the campground.

Steamboat is my favorite local spot. The swimming is so nice, there is something to do for every age and swimming ability. The spots are good sized and most of them have good privacy. It is on Steamboat rd, and the good thing about this Campground, If it is full, there are about 15 dispersed campsites past steamboat on the main road.
