Overview

Overview

French Pete Campground sits at an elevation of 1,800 feet in the Willamette National Forest. This popular escape from summer heat is heavily shaded by a thick canopy of conifers. French Pete Creek runs through the campground which is located on the South Fork of the McKenzie River in Oregon.

Natural Features:

French Pete Campground sits at the confluence of the South Fork of the McKenzie River and French Pete Creek. The area is heavily wooded with Douglas fir trees and vine maple.

Recreation:

The area offers excellent opportunities for fishing, hiking, boating, swimming, camping, picnicking, and scenic drives.

Fishing in the McKenzie River is “catch and release” only for trout.

The Three Sisters Wilderness Area as well as French Pete and Box Canyon Trail Areas offer several miles of hiking. Additional hiking trailheads are a short drive away.

Terwilliger (Cougar) Hot Springs are nearby for a nice soak. Cougar Reservoir and Hidden Lake are also in the vicinity, offering additional recreation options.

Facilities:

Campsites are nicely shaded with access to both French Pete Creek and the South Fork of the McKenzie River. This 17-unit campground has toilets, water from a hand pump, fire rings, garbage service, and waste water disposal sites.
