12.8 miles northeast of Lowell, Oregon. From Lowell, Oregon: Beginning at the Lowell Junior/Senior High School at 65 Pioneer Street, head north for 0.1 mile.  Turn left at the 2nd cross street onto North Shore Drive.  Drive for another 0.1 mile and turn right at the first cross street, which is South Moss Street.  In approximately 0.8 miles, South Moss Street becomes the Jasper-Lowell Road.  Continue for another 1.0 mile until the four-way stop.  Turn right onto Big Fall Creek Road.  Approaching the base of the Fall Creek Lake dam, bear to the left after passing Winberry Creek Road (on your right).  Note that Big Fall Creek Road becomes Forest Road 18 after crossing the National Forest boundary.  Travel for 10.7 miles from the four-way stop and the destination will be on your right.

Meh, it is okay.

This spot is actually in a pretty area, but unfortunately half the sites are pretty close to the road. The road featured a lot of hooting dudes who drive obnoxiously fast, loud and lifted trucks. They will tailgate you if you’re not doing at least double the 30 mile per hour speed limit on the gentle winding roads. The site host was very nice and accessible for questions and firewood. The site itself had a little garbage on the periphery that I picked up. The water pumps weren’t working so you had to have your own water. They had two port-a-potties that were full enough where you definitely had to reckon with seeing other people’s shit. Someone left a pad on the floor. So basically, the campground is better if you score a spot on the water and make sure the facilities are working. Sites on the water are more private but were all taken by Friday at this first come, first served campground. Wherever you set up camp, you may have to deal with rowdy people who don’t respect the land. The stories we heard from those who frequent the area were truly horrific and it sounds like the local police and forest service don’t do much to intervene and enforce the rules.
