Campground Description

Campground Description

Located just north of Toketee Falls along the same route that leads to the North Umpqua Hot Springs, Toketee Lake Campground is a very basic stopover that provides a good home base for exploring the falls, hot springs and several sections of the almost 80-mile-long North Umpqua Trail.

Situated between the hot springs (approximately 3 miles north) and the falls (about 1.5 miles south), the campground is directly beside the North Umpqua River and just a stone's throw from Toketee Lake, where you can spot aquatic mammals like otters and beavers as well as avians like ducks, geese, great blue herons, and kingfishers, all of which make their homes nearby.  You may even glimpse a bald eagle soaring in the sky overhead.

The fairly shallow reservoir is the result of a PacifiCorp dam that regulates the water flow over the downstream Toketee Falls. Fishing is ample in the 80-acre lake, which is home to populations of rainbow and brown trout. A paved boat ramp makes access easy year-round.

The nearby adventures are the main attraction, as the first-come, first-served campground has no running or potable water and you must pack out your garbage. Sites along the A Loop are recommended as they are right on the North Umpqua River (and some have great access to the water) and farther from the road. Of the 32 car sites, many have room for RVs (maximum vehicle length is 30 feet), and campfires and dogs on leashes are allowed.
