The vibe at Union Creek Campground
Drop some Union Creek Campground knowledge on us.
It is a travesty how many of these sites were reserved with no one in them. That being said, we found site 4, which was first come first serve, to be one of our favorites. There are a lot of sites that offer privacy and some back up either to Union Creek (as ours did) or to the Rogue River itself. There were mosquitos but a little DEET kept them at bay. Pro Tip: firewood at the lodge/store across the street is cheaper than what is available from the host. There is also a restaurant and ice cream shop just outside the camp entrance. Great jumping off point to Crater Lake and a much better camping experience. Take the Rogue River trail to Natural Bridge - the trail is not to be missed, it's a very easy but beautiful hike!
The family was split about this one. I thought it quite lovely. Our spot backed up to Union Creek and I love the riparian plant life. The kids love being next to the creek, but it was very buggy. One day I would love to come back to the area and hike on the Union Creek Trail.
