Small with great river access

This is a small Forest Service campground right on the river. The sites are very simple, with picnic tables and fire rings. It can be a little noisy in the sites nearest the road, but the dense shrubbery helps. There is a decent amount of privacy between sites and the campground is well-maintained.

Lots of amenities and lots of people

This is a really big campground with lots of trees and lawn space. The sites are kind of close together, there isn't much privacy. The showers and other amenities are really nice. Our campsite was about a 2 minute walk from the river. We visited during the week in August and the got the very last campsite available.

Very short stay.

We got in at about 9:00 pm and had to leave the following morning at 8:00. The vault toilet was clean and not especially stinky. The campsite was large and very flat, with a picnic table and fire ring. There is a nice waterfall right nearby and the surrounding first is beautiful.

Right in the creek, very comfortable.

There was flight grass to put my tent on, which added some extra padding when sleeping. The camp host was very nice, somewhat chatty.

Private, shady, and quiet.

This is a small campground with limited amenities, but a nice amount of privacy for each site. The creek lives up to it's name and is very loud. The sites are not especially big, just enough space for two small tents.

Simple and quiet

This out-of-the-way campground was small and full of trees. It was very shady, quiet, and clean. There was, unfortunately, cow poop all over the place, luckily, we had a shovel. I believe that is a seasonal issue. There is a nice creek that runs through the campground.

Crowded but picturesque

This campground was right on Gales Creek, with lush vegetation providing nice privacy. It was completely full when we were there and fairly loud during the day. I felt that there were not enough bathrooms to accommodate a full campground, and as such, the vault toilets were rather unpleasant.

Simple and secluded

I loved this campground. Located directly on rock creek, the sound of the river lulled me to sleep. It was very quiet, and very far out of the way. There is a lovely trailhead very close to the campground.

Lot's of amenities

This park was filled with green lawns and very clean, new, showers. The Rogue River was very accessible. The campground was also full of people, mostly families with small children.

Quiet and clean

This campground is well kept and clean. It is somewhat popular, but not constantly crowded. There are a few short hiking trails that leave directly from the campground, though the better hikes require a short drive. The adjoining fish hatchery is interesting.

Very popular and crowded, but full of amenities.

This is a very convenient, family-oriented campground. The camp hosts take 'quiet time' very seriously.

Very basic and secluded.

This is one of the most primitive campgrounds I've seen. There were a few old picking tables, fire rings, and one vault toilet. We were the only ones there during the peak of camping season. There were lovely flowers and raspberries growing nearby. A few dead branches feel during the night, which was a little underling.

Quiet, with less of river access.

The tent sites are fairly close together, but it was not crowded when we were there. There is a swimming hole and lots of access to the calm river. There is a fountain of potable water at every site, decent bathrooms, and even hot showers. The sites were shady, some were very close to the "main road" which really doesn't get much traffic.
