Farewell Bend is one of our favorites, and we camp here at least once a year. It is a beautiful campground right on the Rogue River! It is a great base camp for Crater Lake and waterfalls, and just down the road within walking distance is the Rogue Gorge, which is a must see! Beckie's Cafe is just beyond the gorge where you can get a great slice of pie, and the food is good too. We camped at Farewell Bend Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Farewell Bend is a forest service campground on the Rogue River, near Crater Lake. It has some water spigots, a place to dump grey water, restrooms, and some trash cans. There's no cell service, no TV, no real interaction with the outside world. It is absolutely beautiful. There are 61 sites, arranged in roughly three loops. We were there in mid-May, and it was us, one couple from Medford, and the host. Each of us camped right on the river, in a separate loop. About half the sites are fronted on the river. The river sites are paired off. If someone is sharing your site, you're right next to them, but the back of the site is enormous, with two tables, two fire pits, and another fireplace thing. We loved it here. It's exactly our idea of a perfect campground. <p> There are signs saying RV's up to 40 feet. Longer than that could probably find a place big enough to camp, but it would be hard to navigate the roads. We camped at Farewell Bend Campground in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our stay here a Farewell Bend Campground. It was very spacious and had quite a few shade trees in the RV Camping area. We reserved our spot through ReserveAmerica and when we arrived, the spot had our name on it already on the post. The fishing was excellent. We do a lot of kayak fishing and we were able to catch some crappie and catfish! It was nice and quiet. Other than tons of bugs on a warm June afternoon, we couldn't have asked for a better stay :-) We camped at Farewell Bend Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is an amazing National Forest campground. We were traveling with friends and snagged a double site right on the Rogue River. The RV length restriction indicates 40 feet but we were able to get our 45 foot motorhome in. Part of the reason is where the site was located which was right at the first intersection next to the camp host. We wouldn't have made it around the loop due to tight corners and overhanging trees. The double sites are close together (only one of us could extend our awning) but the "yard" is huge. I mean huge! Nice firepit and we had our own "private" rocks on the Rogue River. Be aware that the water is frigid! We were lucky enough to be there for a free fishing weekend and had a blast catching trout. There are no hookups or WII FI and no cell coverage. We found the best place to get connected was at the library in Prospect. They have free and very good WII FI, and cell phone service is available here. There were lots of bugs when we were there but it seems seasonal. Some road noise but quiet at night. Some sites are noisier than others. Tons of sightseeing in the area. We will definitely return. We camped at Farewell Bend Campground in a Motorhome.

We were lucky to get site 22 on the Rogue River. This site is first come, first served. We showed up on a Thursday morning in late June and there were several campsites available. Our family loved Farewell Bend. The campground is beautiful, under the shade of a tall evergreen forest. The campsites are large and most have some level of screening shrubs between them, so we felt very private. The campsites are back in, with picnic tables and fire rings. The bathrooms were clean and had electrical outlets. No showers, however. They had grey water dump stations by the bathrooms and tap water, but no hookups. The Rogue River rages through a narrow rock chute on the northern boundary of the campground. It's beautiful and sounds great, but be Very careful if you have little ones…it's quite dangerous. There was a near drowning the day we arrived when a kid fell in and had to be pulled from the river, unconscious and bloody, but alive. Just downstream from the campground is the Upper Rogue River gorge, which would be certain death to anybody swept down that way. So keep an eye on the kids around the river! On a positive note, the campground is criss-crossed with great forest trails, perfect for biking, and there is a kids play area in the center. The Rogue River gorge is a short hike downstream and is beautiful. Union Creek Resort is on the highway right at the gorge, with a general store, ice cream shop, and a fantastic restaurant called Beckie's. Overall I highly recommend this campground. We camped at Farewell Bend Campground in a Motorhome.

Beautiful campground with lush vegetation and lots of space between sites. Campground host very friendly and helpful. Excellent central base camp from which to explore the Rogue, Crater Lake, Diamond Lake and the North Umpqua's many waterfalls. If you camp next to the river you won't hear much of the highway. I would camp here again in a heartbeat. We camped at Farewell Bend Campground in a Motorhome.

The cost reflects a 50% Federal Senior Pass discount (available to any U.S. citizen over 62 years of age for $10 for a lifetime pass). The campground is actually located close to Union Creek, Oregon, an unincorporated area. This is one of several Forest Service campgrounds along highway 62 between Medford, OR and Crater Lake National Park. Other than this campground, the other campground that is suitable for RV’s is Natural Bridges CG. (See review elsewhere). The campground is along the Rogue River and about half of the campsites are right next to the River with the views and the sound of the River. The negative is that, since the campground is right next to the highway, there are also the sounds of the highway, including the logging trucks. However, the highway calms down considerably at night, so we did not find that to be a big problem. The sites right along the road are much less desirable. The campground is nice and dark, which we like, except for overly-bright lights on the restrooms. The sites are paved and several of the sites are long enough for a big RV and most are fairly level. With the exception of some “buddy” sites, the sites are nice and far apart, often with no views of your neighbor. There are no hookups and no dump station. However, there is water available with nu-threaded taps, so you have to use a “cheater” to put on the faucets to fill your tank. There are also gray water dump sites throughout the campground. If you need a full dump station, it is available about 11 miles south in at the Crater Lake (Prospect) RV park for a fee. There are restrooms with flush toilets, but no showers and no hot water. Even though the sign at registration implies otherwise, generators (contained in the RV or on pavement) can be used between the hours of 7 am to 10 pm. The campground is run by a concessionaire, Rogue Recreation. The campground host sells wood for $6 per bundle. The host was very helpful and friendly. This is a good campground for visiting Crater Lake National Park, about 20 miles further along Highway 62. It is a lot less expensive than the campground within the park. There are trails and other natural features of interest within the area. Becky’s restaurant, famous for their pies is less than a mile from the campground. This is a first-come, first-served campground. No reservations are accepted and it does fill during the prime summer months. We camped at Farewell Bend Campground in a Motorhome.
