Gorgeous campground. Lots of meadow areas. Great areas to walk around and explore, although not too many areas to get down to the river. Great playground and disc golf course. Weekend ice cream cart provides an opportunity for a great treat. Our site was level and, although we were on the opposite side of our trailer doors (fire pit, picnic table, etc), we had a lot of room as it opened up to a meadow area. Most sites are very close together so privacy is not real great.
Campground is very close to a busy highway. One side has a fence between the campground and the roadway but the other side of the campground (Umpqua Joe side) has no fence dividing the busy roadway from the campground. Some of the campsites literally butt right up to the road. The highway can be very busy and fast at times. Would be very cautious if camping with young children on that side of the park. Campground is beautiful but I am unable to rate higher due to my concern with the proximity of the roadway to the campground, with no fence. My children are old enough to know to stay away from the roadway but I am concerned for others that may have smaller children. I worry that a small child could easily wander into the roadway and be hit by a car. - Peace-love-trailer camping

Great county park to escape to. The sites are paved with picnic table and fire pit available. No privacy between sites but there is space. Nice boat launch area access to Rogue River and occasional jet boat traffic passes by. Crater Lake National Park is day trip and worth every mile. My neighbors went to Oregon Caves and said they were very interesting. Grants Pass fun town to walk around. No phone, TV or internet at campground but strong Verizon signal in Merlin just a short distance away. Would stay again. - obxblond

Very nice county park. No cell service, internet service or satellite TV! With that said, roughing it was great. Disk golf course was wonderful! Firewood was sold, 10 pieces for $5.00. Ice was also for sale. Signage was poor, hard to find our reserved site! Nice little beach area next to the boat launch. We enjoyed our stay here, road noise was a minimal at night. Campground was very clean, - Followin the Sun
