This secluded and quiet campground is nestled along beautiful Lost Creek on the Willamette National Forest. The campground’s name was derived from "Girl of the Limberlost," a classic novel by American writer and naturalist, Gene Stratton-Porter.

Natural Features:

Located near the Three Sisters Wilderness Area, Limberlost is surrounded by fir and cedar forest. The vine maples and thimbleberry in the area help provide privacy and shade for some sites. With the babbling Lost Creek in the background, Limberlost will not disappoint.


Hikers, swimmers, and anglers alike will delight with nearby Three Sisters Wilderness Area, Mt. Washington Wilderness, and Lost Creek. Those interested in relaxing will enjoy a soak in nearby Belknap Hot Springs. If you have an interest in biking, several trails outside of the Wilderness Areas are available.


The campground offers vault toilets and garbage service. Each campsite includes a fire ring and picnic table. There is no drinking water available at the campground. Firewood is available at Olallie Campground.

Nearby Attractions:

Both general stores and restaurants are nearby in the towns of McKenzie Bridge and Blue River.
