Located deep in the heart of the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest, in Oregon, Almeda Park Campground offers stunning scenery and seclusion. There are just under 40 RV campsites here, and all tucked away under the canopy of trees on the banks of the Rogue River.
This is a primitive woodland RV camping area, with no hookups of any kind, but there are plenty of drinking water faucets. There is a restroom with vault toilets, but no showers, so you will need to make sure your rental RV water tanks are full before setting up on-site. But the lack of facilities can be overlooked for the sheer peace and beauty of the location. There are pull-thru sites available, and the campground can cater for RV campers up to 80-feet long, perfect if you are driving a large rental RV for the first time. This is a pet-friendly campground, so no need to leave your dog at home.
Almeda Park Campground does have a boat ramp straight into the river, so perfect for some fun on the water, but you'll need to bring your own equipment. You'll also find picnic tables and fire pits for outdoor cooking and socializing.
Although deep in the forest, the campground is just a few miles from Highway 5, making access not too tricky. The nearest town is Grants Pass, just off the highway, and from here you can reach the larger town of Medford to the south or the city of Eugene to the north.
When you book an RV in Josephine County, you're booking your ticket to experience the vast forests of southwestern Oregon. National forests surround you in all directions.
Step out of your rental RV, and you are in a world of outdoor adventure. The boat launch here is a popular spot for launching canoes and rafting trips. Several companies in the nearby towns arrange group rafting and canoeing trips, and it's a wonderful way of exploring the river.
The Rogue River is well-known as being one of the best salmon areas in the state of Oregon, and it's easy to see why. Stunning unspoiled landscapes and clear, cold mountain water are perfect spawning grounds for salmon. For best results, there are plenty of guides to help you find the perfect fishing spot or help you improve your technique.
With such beautiful landscapes, hiking is one of the best ways of getting out and exploring, and just to the north of the campground are three great hiking trails. The Rainie Falls Trail is a lovely 3.5-mile moderate, out and back hike that follows the route of the Rogue River and passes a waterfall. If you are in the right season and very lucky, you may even see salmon fish jumping as you walk along. The same trailhead is also the start of the 38-mile multi-day Rogue River Trail, and the Rogue River Wild and Scenic Rafting Trip. For the rafting trip, you'll need a guide and return transport. It's a 3 to 4-day trip usually and also involves some areas of rapids. It's definitely worth it, and excursions can be organized through local guides.
To the east of the campground is the stunning Crater Lake National Park. At 1,943 feet deep, it is the deepest lake in the United States and contains some of the clearest water found anywhere in the world. It was formed nearly 8,000 years ago when the volcano Mount Mazama collapsed. The area is now managed, and you can enjoy fishing, hiking, skiing, and snowshoeing around the crater and in the park.
With Almeda Park Campground being quite isolated, it is essential to stock up your rental RV before traveling to the campground, but there are several small towns just of Highway 5 that have grocery stores.
Grants Pass is the largest town, and while here, take some time out to visit Riverside Park and relax a while. Sitting on the banks of the Rogue River, the park has many sports facilities, plus a splash pad, walking trails, disc golf course, and easy access to the river. Every year, the park is also host to the Boatnik Festival, a speedboat racing event that has been held every year on Memorial Day, since the 1960s. It has now grown into a huge event, with parades, funfairs, music, and even aircraft acrobatic displays.
A few miles north of Grants Pass is the ghost town of Golden. Once a center of the Gold Rush, it is now preserved as a reminder of the old gold mining days. Several original buildings remain to this day, and there is information on the history and demise of the town.
