About Wolf Creek Group Site
Wolf Creek Group Campground is set near the banks of Little River with a large open area hemmed in by a canopy of forest, providing a perfect setting for family reunions, celebrations or group getaways. Natural Features: Visitors to Umpqua National Forest are often taken aback by the unique landscapes of southwestern Oregon. Explosive geologic events have shaped the distinctive landscape on the nearly 1 million-acre forest, and provide spectacular scenery as well as an abundance of natural and cultural resources. Flowing adjacent to this campground is the North Umpqua River, a tributary of the Umpqua River, and a designated National Wild and Scenic River. Possessing remarkable values related to wildlife, culture, recreation and scenery, the North Umpqua River is renowned for its emerald green waters and fly fishing. Several designated wilderness areas provide undisturbed solitude for visitors. Encompassing 19,100 acres, Boulder Creek Wilderness offers dense old-growth forests and steep terrain that tower above Boulder Creek, which runs through the heart of the wilderness. Diverse ecosystems support a wide range of habitat for wildlife common to the area. From eagles and owls, to salamanders and salmon, these species, along with many others, depend on surrounding undeveloped wilderness, clean streams and diverse forests to live. Recreation: In addition to being a prime location for hiking, fishing, biking and boating in summer and early fall, Wolf Creek offers excellent skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling in the winter months. A 1.2-mile trail that begins in the campground is popular among hikers. Spring brings on lush vegetation and a smattering of wildflowers. The reduced water flows in the summer months reveal the delicate and complex channels and pathways that water has carved into the bedrock cliffs underneath Wolf Creek Falls. In autumn, visitors will be treated to the brilliant fall colors mixing with mixed conifer forest. Facilities: This campground has one large reservable site able to accommodate up to 150 people. The site is equipped with several picnic tables, a shelter with a fireplace, campfire rings, grills, flush toilets and drinking water. Access to the Little River is within walking distance. Ball fields, a playground and horseshoe pits are also on-site. Nearby Attractions: Visitors may want to take some time to visit nearby Mount Rainer National Park. The park offers a glimpse into glaciers, sub-alpine ecology and volcanic landscapes typical in the region. The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), one of the worlds premier National Scenic Trails, showcases some of North Americas most fantastic scenery, winding its way its way from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon and Washington, and is accessible near the campground. Visitors also enjoy the 172 miles of diverse river and mountain landscapes along the Rogue-Umpqua National Scenic Byway. The scenic drive travels from rolling oak-covered hills and towering coniferous forests to roaring white water rapids and incised intercanyon lava flows. The highway travels alongside the Upper Rogue and North Umpqua Wild and Scenic Rivers that contain world-class fisheries.
