10 Reviews of Waterloo County Park
Quiet with Lush Forest and Lawns

This is a Linn County park located just a few miles southeast of Lebanon and northwest of Sweet Home off the Santiam Highway.  The park is located along the Santiam River and apparently a good fishing spot as we saw several people fishing.  There are hiking trails in the woods and also a Disc Golf course.  Hook-ups for Electric and Water only, but they have a "waste water" (gray water) disposal every few sites where you can pour any gray water.  There is a sewer dump station located in the park.  The sites are spaced out nicely and the park is very quiet.

Nice for a day

Waterloo is pretty open and has some bike trails and some parks and a pretty great disc golf course! The water is really cold but perfect for a day outside or a picnic with the kids!

So much fun!

I have visited this park on and off for over 30 years. Great place for kids and adults and pets. Play area, fishing ramp, camp sites and plenty of car or RV parking. It's located right on Willamette river and has great fishing. Barbeque areas and covered seats. Bathrooms are fairly well maintained. Waterloo store is long time land mark not far from park with all your needs including worms and firewood. There are smaller park areas with bbq and play areas around main camping area as well. I would recommend locking everything up though, just my personal tip. Year round fun.

Waterloo County Park

Campground with something for everyone! Right on the river for swimming or fishing. If you drive up the road, you can float down the river to your campground! This park even has a disc golf course to enjoy while you camp. There’s a park area with a playground for the kids to play. Spaces are large, and nicely spaced out.

Geared more towards trailers

It’s an ok campground but was more of a parking lot style campground in my opinion, it does have grass and some trees. Close to water.

Pretty camping

Campgrounds are a little ways outside of Lebanon where we were able to get camping supplies at their 24 hour Walmart. Cute little town but not a big tourist destination. Campgrounds were fairly nice and had a woodsy feel. Nearby hiking includes McDowell creek falls where there are a couple of medium grade hiking trails that can be muddy. The falls are quite beautiful and worth a visit even if you’re not into hiking since most of them even the bigger ones are accessible with just a short walk down Wooden stairs or viewable from the parking lot (be careful the stairs are quite slippery) bathrooms located on site.

Dirty and not well maintained

Rangers did not seem to manage the people visiting here and many seemed to be homeless. Lots of trash debris and broken facilities.

Overnight waterfront ..

Great little spot for a family get together and overnight stay … On the river good fishing… but be aware… current is swift.. swimmers seem to get in trouble every year here ….

Big park spread out.

This place has it, a dog park, play disc golf, hiking trails, fish, with ADA fishing deck, boat launch, playground, and two camping loops. Loop “A” is reservable and Loop “B” open in summer as first come/first serve. Please note there is a water hazard for boater and swimmer down from camping area. Has sites with electric and water, and those without. Does have a dump station, and bathrooms with showers. Has a few sites set up for ADA. There is only one site with 50amps the rest is set up for 30amp.

Lots of Space, Lots to Do

The small bit of driving you have to do to get to Waterloo is well worth it - what we have here is a spacious, friendly campground with good nearby attractions, including a moderately raging waterfall, disc golf, etc. There are 120 sites, with over a mile of frontage to the healthy South Santiam River. You can see all your neighbors - the big downside - but there's plenty of space between the large campsites that also lends itself to lots of walking, ball throwing, large gatherings and for friendly conversations for those so inclined. This is your big chance to grow your outdoor ecstatic dance club.
