Valley Of The Rogue State Park

Campground Description:  The Valley of the Rogue State Park is owned and operated by the State of Oregon.  This park is yet another jewel in the crown of terrific Oregon State Parks.  Situated about 15' up from the banks of the Rogue River, Valley of the Rogue offers so many activities that you would be cheating yourself if you only spent 24 hours in the park.  There is an interpretive nature trail paralleling the Rogue River for 1- miles that offers a salmon spawning (in season) viewing platform.  The park rangers offer several programs at the park's amphitheater during the summer months.  Valley of the Rogue offers dozens of acres of lawn area for Frisbee, volleyball courts, horseshoes or just an afternoon stroll.  Valley of the Rogue State Park is a centrally located to visit Crater Lake National Park, the Oregon Caves National Monument, historic Jacksonville, Ashland's Shakespeare Festival, or the Britt Music Festival. The park is ideally located to give you all of this, plus friendly local shops, museums, and sights of interest.  Full shopping, fast foods, fine dining and sightseeing are all available in the nearby town of Grants Pass.  Open year round.

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds.  The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site.  Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide.  Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do allow RV camping but not tent camping.  If in doubt, call the campground first.

The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners.  In this way we ensure that every description in this free guide is unbiased.  Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tent camping and all types of RV camping.  While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.

Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions.  New campgrounds are added weekly.
