Willow Campground is an oval-shaped campground connected to the Cottonwood Campground by the ranger station. Both campgrounds offer about 50 campsites, making a grand total of 100 convenient campsites right by the park entrance. The campfire center is right in the middle of the two campgrounds, and the loop also offers a water hookup. Located along the shores of the Three Mile Slough, boating and other water recreation are super accessible.

We drove from Ohio to here and stayed 6 days. The campground was virtually deserted with the exception of a Saturday night. Staff very friendly and the keep the place immaculate. i loved the Delta. Can't wait to come back!
