Private Camping in Oregon
If you’re looking for a fantastic place for summer camping in Oregon, you should strongly consider becoming a member of Oregon Fishing Club. With our 13 private campgrounds, you are sure to find a prime destination offering unique features that everyone in the family will enjoy.
Overnight Fishing Trips
Imagine the peace and quiet that you and your family have experienced during past day trips fishing at one of our pristine properties. How would like to stretch that good time out over the course of several days?
Just imagine taking a multi-day fishing vacation at one of our 13 campsites. At night, you will find yourself sleeping under the stars surrounded by giant Douglas fir trees and the sounds of the crickets chirping. You will have an ample amount of flat, grassy space to pitch your tent among the bunches of wild irises that surround the area. There are fire rings, picnic tables, garbage cans, and portable toilets. Toilets and garbage pickup are managed by the Oregon Fishing Club.
If your family would prefer to camp in the RV rather than tents, some of our campsites offer full hook-ups. As not all fishing locations allow camping or have RV hookups, it’s important to check the listings and make a reservation.
Our scenic campgrounds offer a perfect setting for canoeing, swimming, hiking, bird watching, fishing, and grilling marshmallows with family and close friends. We have 13 lovely camping sites among our 37 exclusive fishing properties, and each is located within an hour and half of either Salem or Portland. Choose among these beautiful sites, and you will get an idea of why Northwest Oregon is considered one of the best areas for camping in the country:
– Crabtree Creek and Pond
– North Santiam “The Park”
– North Santiam River
– South Santiam River
– Deschutes River At Mecca Flats
– Big and Little Tree Lakes
– Highland Ponds
– Trask River #3 and Burdick Pond
– Trask River #2
– Rainier Lakes and Pond
– Hartland Lake
– Big Creek Fishing Club
– Schmadeke Pond
As those of us in Oregon know, camping is a very popular pastime in the summer months. Many of the public campsites and fishing areas are packed, booked, and crowded nearly every weekend. You may also feel crowded at public sites during summer holidays like the Fourth of July.
These public campsites can sometimes be poorly maintained, polluted, and vandalized. The state may not be able to keep up with proper waste disposal and cleaning when crowds come through. Purchasing a membership with the Oregon Fishing Club is a great way to avoid the crowds at public locations.
Just Make a Reservation
While we still require that you make a reservation, there is almost always a site available on short notice since our campgrounds are only available to members. You don’t have to fight for a site, and the area that you reserve will always be spotless since we maintain the area ourselves. Just pay the $8 reservation fee, and you no longer have to worry about planning your camping trip far in advance to get a prime spot.
