Would be a great campground but Lane County is far behind other Counties in Oregon. They don't keep up on maintenance and close areas that are not maintained. It's ridiculous how they operate. It's our public lands but BLM and USFS treat out lands like they are owned by the agency that controls it. Why should I have to pay $5 to park on Public property ? They've turned this County into a sh¡thole !
Campground with a couple large covered areas with grills and many picnic tables. Also a large grassy area for kids to play in. It is set in an idyllic wooded location next to Clay Creek. I would have given 5 stars if the camp sites were a little further apart.
Lots of mosquitos and little itty bitty beetles flying around, very irritating. My fault for not having enough bug repellant. Loud families yelling profanities at their obnoxious children and the bathrooms smelled horrible. Also lots of brown moss and old crunchy dried up foliage that gave it kind of an "abandoned" feel. Also the water was about a foot deep so no swimming to be had. There's also no camp host. The bonus with the loud families was not feeling guilty for playing my music, of course we turned it off at 10pm. Did find some free birch they had cut to clean up. Yay for free firewood! Also, the sites were pretty big and had lots of green coverage for privacy. And the tent pad was nice and flat. We were able to fit a 4-person tent on the tent pad and my dad's little 2-person far enough away from the fire so it worked out. It wasn't the nicest but I had fun anyway. There's potable water and a field where we threw the frisbee around.
This place is off grid, no cell service. It was wonderful! Loved it!
Clay creek is beautiful! Kids had a great time playing in the water (higher than usual) and catching crawdads! An hour out of service, I like to be unplugged, but I need to know I can make a call in an emergency. There was quite a bit of trash at our site when we got there, and parking is not optimal.
