This is a small campground just off Highway 395 along the confluence of Desolation Creek and the North Fork John Day River. Tollbridge features 5 campsties and an accessible toilet. There is also a sign interpreting the geology of the area. There is no potable water or garbage service, so please pack your garbage home. Local attractions include hunting, fishing, swimming, non-motorized boating, and photography.
When intuition draws you to a place for no other reason than a feeling, you’d be smart to follow it.
That’s what led us to Tollbridge, a lightly used campsite 15 miles south of Ukiah on Highway 325. At first it’s not much to see, but ale a chance and unpack or a night or two and you’ll be glad you did.
There is light activity on the gravel road behind the campground, but most turns east rather than crossing the bridge that gives this site it’s name. Just under the bridge is a perfect swimming hole, and up river either way decent water for brookline fishing. With only 5 sites, only 2 of which can accommodate RVs, this place stays quiet even on the busiest of weekends.
Go for a swim, walk a long the river, and end the day next to the fire as the sound of the river washes away the outside world.
We decided to pack up and go camping with no reservations and where able to snag one of the last sites. It was the middle of a rare northwest heat wave and we had no shade at our site so we spend most of the time down by the river. there where many places to sit in the water and play and it doesn't move to terribly fast. The park, bathrooms and picnic areas all kept in tip top shape. The camp sites all had picnic tables and firepits. Some where very large sites others only big enough for a two person tent. Over all great park!
