Wolf Creek Park

Campground Description:  Wolf Creek Park is owned and operated by Josephine County.  Like All Josephine County parks, Wolf Creek is financially supported by day use and camping fees only.  Wolf Creek isn't exactly the crown jewel of Josephine County parks in that it is the most primitive of the county parks.  The park is set into a grove of deciduous trees intermingled with a few evergreens.  There is no landscaping, which adds to the rustic feel of the park.  The park offers, proportionally, more tent campsites vs. RV campsites than any other Josephine park.  Wolf Creek Park offers its visitors horseshoes, Frisbee golf, a portable basketball hoop, a large fire ring and wading in the creek.  One of the best reasons to camp at Wolf Creek Park is to go into the town of Wolf Creek and visit the historic Wolf Creek Inn.  The park is closed from mid October to early April.  Limited shopping is available in the town of Wolf Creek.  Complete services and shopping is available in Grants Pass, 19 miles south.

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.
