Deer Flat Group Site (Horseshoe Bend Campground)


Deer Flat Group Campground is situated in a stand of old growth Douglas fir, sugar pine and deciduous trees, near the banks of the scenic North Umpqua River. The campground offers a perfect setting for large family and group camping excursions.


Facilities

This large, reserve only site is able to accommodate up to 70 people. The site is equipped with several picnic tables, campfire rings, grills, flush toilets and drinking water. Roads and spurs in this campground are paved. Access to the North Umpqua River is within walking distance.

Nearby attractions

Opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, boating and fishing are within 1 mile of the campground. Access to climbing routes is within 10 miles. Visitors may want to take some time to visit nearby Crater Lake National Park, the only national park in Oregon! The amazing Crater Lake area offers a glimpse into the volcanic history of the area. Experience 172 miles of diverse river and mountain landscapes along the Rogue-Umpqua National Scenic Byway. Travel from rolling oak-covered hills and towering coniferous forests, to roaring white water rapids and incised intercanyon lava flows. The highway travels alongside the Upper Rogue and North Umpqua Wild and Scenic Rivers that contain world-class fisheries.

Natural feaures

Visitors to Umpqua National Forest are often taken aback by the unique landscapes of southwestern Oregon. Explosive geologic events have shaped the distinctive landscape on the nearly 1 million-acre forest, and provide spectacular scenery as well as an abundance of natural and cultural resources. The translation of the word, "Umpqua," meaning "thundering waters," defines the area. High mountain lakes, heart-stopping rapids, peaceful ponds and thundering waterfalls, including the 272-foot Watson Falls on the North Umpqua Highway, offer visitors plenty of pastimes. Diverse ecosystems support a wide range of habitat for wildlife common to the area. From eagles and owls, to salamanders and salmon, these species, along with many others, depend on surrounding undeveloped wilderness, clean streams and diverse forests to live.

Recreation

Deer Flat is a prime location for hiking, fishing, biking, and boating in summer and early fall. The North Umpqua River, adjacent to this campground, drains portions of the western side of the Cascade Range. Almost 34 miles of this river have been designated as a Wild and Scenic River. Renowned for outstanding salmon and steelhead fishing and exhilarating whitewater challenges, the North Umpqua River offers an ideal setting for many recreational pursuits. The Illahee Flat Trail descends from the nearby Horseshoe Bend Campground and continues from Illahee Flat to the Jessie Wright Segment of the North Umpqua Trail. The 79 mile North Umpqua Trail parallels the river and offers visitors challenging hiking and mountain biking experiences.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
