Overview

Overview

Longbow Organization Camp was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. The historic campground provides a covered cooking area with a fireplace and six sleep shelters that face the beautiful South Santiam River.

Natural Features:

The campground spans 10 acres on a bend of the South Santiam river. The river is fed by runoff from the Cascade Mountains and flows for 66 miles. The Menagerie Wilderness is located nearby.

Elk can sometimes be seen in early May in an elk pasture one mile from Longbow.

Recreation:

Fishing and wading opportunities abound in the South Santiam River. Visitors interested in hiking can explore the Old Santiam Wagon Road. The historic trail was used to transport livestock east across the Cascade Mountains to central Oregon's grasslands.

Facilities:

Longbow includes six alpine shelters that sleep a total of 48 people. All shelters are along the river. There is a covered cooking area and an amphitheater that seats 75 people. Firewood can be purchased onsite.

Nearby Attractions:

For additional hiking options, head to the South Santiam and Gordon Lakes Trail Area.
