Great Campground, Close to Town

Just outside of Oakridge. Great campround. Many sites with view of the water. Many first come-first served. Hosts are friendly and take great care of the grounds. Some of the sites are a bit slopey and some are only reached by stairs. Lovely day use area as well with swimming, hiking etc.
