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