Campground Description

Campground Description

Pro Contributor

This very small, free, first-come, first-served campground is located along Forest Service Road 21 and the Middle Fork of the Willamette Trail. It's a great place to camp for the night, and there are many outdoor actives to do in the area such as hiking, mountain biking, and fishing. 

From the campground a short loop trail leads across the springs into the old-growth forest. Along the way there are interpretive signs where you can learn about bull trout and their impact on the ecosystem, and you'll also see information describing the historic Oregon Central Military Wagon Road that passes through the region. A few picnic tables are also near the start of the loop, and these are good spots for lunch next to Indigo Springs. 

The campground consists of a vault toilet and three small tent sites, each with a fire ring and picnic table (or what's left of them). There is no water located at this campground.
