About Breitenbush Campground

Breitenbush Campground is nestled along the banks of its namesake river in the forests of western Oregon. The peaceful flow of the river can be heard throughout the campground, providing a peaceful getaway for campers.


Wading and fishing are popular activities in the Breitenbush River, and rainbow trout is the most common catch for anglers.

The Willamette National Forest has about 1,700 miles of trail. While many are in wilderness areas, a number of trails are low-elevation, easy-access trails for year-round hiking.


This campground has 29 sites, 18 are reservable, and all have picnic tables, grills and easy access to the vault toilets. Drinking water spigots are spread throughout the campground. Most campsites offer sweeping views of the river.

Natural Features

The campground lies in the Willamette National Forest, which stretches for 110 miles along the western slopes of the Cascade Range. The varied landscape of high mountains, narrow canyons, cascading streams and wooded slopes offer varied recreational opportunities for visitors. The Breitenbush River is a tributary of the North Santiam River, and its clean waters flow from snow melt in the Mount Jefferson Wilderness. A variety of plants and foliage separate the spacious campsites and provide privacy from other sites.

Nice riverside sites

Nice easy going campground under big Doug Firs and right on the river.

Its hard to get a site right on the river  but if you do its amazing.

Its pretty peacful after 9 PM..not much road noise from 46..liked it here during the week kits a good place for a solo camper. Weekends great for families.

No cell

Pretty campground next to Breitenbush River.

This campground had lots of lovely sites that looked out onto Breitenbush River.


Found this little gem last minute because everything was PACKED at Detroit. Thankfully a couple were heading out while we were coming in. The campground is clean and we had a cute little cove behind our camp site.

Walk in secluded campground

Walk in campground. Secluded area with limited cell service. Limited spots for tents. Trails are not clearly marked. Access to water near the end of the trail and you must cross the river to access the warm springs.

Crystal clear waters

The river near the campground is crystal clear and great for fishing. Several amazing swimming holes just down the road. primitive and not ideal for small children, otherwise, a great private camping spot.
