Trout Creek is a nice campground along the Santiam River. There is a small waterfall that runs into the river and a great spot for fishing. There are several trails for hiking; one that leads to the Walton Ranch Interpretive Trail.
We stayed in early June and it was still pretty rainy, so there were a lot of slugs and mushrooms.
First camping trip of the year. Most of the sites were fairly private with vegetation separating them. Quiet too. We had a riverfront site but couldn’t see the river thru the forest and pictures were deceiving. Couldn’t actually access the water. Enjoyed day tripping to Green Peter/Quartzville and then Clear Lake the next day. Site got fairly muddy in the rain. Vault toilets were very clean. No camp host or firewood for sale even thought rec.gov said there was.
