Abbott Creek Campground is a family friendly campground that sits at the confluence of the Woodruff and Abbott Creeks in the Rouge River – Siskiyou National Forest. The campground is partially situated under an old-growth forest, as well as open meadow areas, and is walking distance from the Rogue River. One of the main attractions to Abbott Creek Campground is OHV riding. The campground is OHV friendly, and there many trails in the area for exploring. Abbot Creek is also a great spot for exploring the other natural attractions in the area, including Rogue River Gorge and Crater Lake.

There are 25 campsites at Abbot Creek Campground, each can accommodate RVs up to 25 feet in length. 5 of the campsites are designated as OHV campsites and can accommodate extra vehicles. Each of the campsites includes a picnic table, fire ring, and access to drinking water and bathrooms. A grey water sump is also available for RVs. Union Creek Resort is located a couple of miles away and offers camping supplies and a restaurant. Reservations are not accepted, all campsites at Abbott Creek are first-come/first-served.

Campfire restrictions may be in effect in the summertime at Abbott Creek Campground. Check with the High Cascades Ranger District for up to date restriction information.

Abbott Creek Campground Bottom Line

Abbott Creek is a really nice secluded, off the beaten path campground. Since it is not directly on Crater Lake Highway, it tends to be less busy than the nearby Union Creek and Farewell Bend Campgrounds. The campground is really scenic, with close access to a couple creeks and a nice day hike to the Rogue River. Since it is closer to Abbot and Woodruff creeks, it is also a better choice than the campsites on the Rogue River for families with small children, as the water in the creeks is significantly slower moving than the Rogue.

If you have a quad or a dirt bike Abbot Creek is great place for base camp. There dozens of long, winding trails in the area.

The bottom line on Abbot Creek Campground is to go in mid-May or early June. The campground is never really busy, but the bugs in this area can get pretty bad in the summer evenings.
