Campground Description

Campground Description

Pro Contributor

Located along the Middle Fork of the Willamette River, Kiahanie Campground is a small campground with good proximity to other outdoor adventures on Forest Road 19, also known as the Aufderheide Drive. Nestled into the old-growth forest of the Willamette National Forest, this campground offers opportunities to relax, enjoy the sounds of the river and explore many of the nearby activities, which include hiking, mountain biking, fishing and even cycling on the West Cascades Scenic Byway.

The Aufderheide Scenic Highway, named after Robert Aufderheide, the Willamette National Forest Supervisor from 1954 until his death in 1959, is a 54-mile long highway connecting Highway 126 to the north near the town of Rainbow, Oregon, and Highway 58 to the south near the town of Westfir, Oregon.

This first-come, first-served campground is split into two loops, which include 19 sites. Some have water access to the North Fork of the Middle Fork Willamette River, and five accessible sites offer compacted rock routes. There are picnic tables and fire rings in most sites. Other amenities include vault toilets and potable water. It is open May to October, but it’s best to check with the Middle Fork Ranger Station for exact dates.
