Sarah Totten Campground is located next to the Klamath Wild and Scenic River, about 33 miles east of the town of Happy Camp. The facility is popular with anglers, hikers and rafters.

Natural Features:

The campground sits in a shaded area next to the Klamath River at an elevation of 1,400 feet.

The Klamath National Forest encompasses nearly 2 million acres of land straddling the California-Oregon border. The Klamath contains a vast array of mountains, streams and lakes. With elevations ranging from 450 to 8,900 feet, the forest is home to diverse plant life and nearly 400 animal species.


The river can be accessed from the campground, and lends itself to fishing, tubing, whitewater rafting and kayaking. Hiking trails are available in the vicinity.


The campground offers two group sites and nine single-family sites. The group sites can accommodate a maximum of 30 people each. They feature an area for dispersed tent camping and several picnic tables and campfire rings with grills. Other amenities include accessible vault toilets, drinking water spigots, trash collection and a parking area for vehicles and trailers.

Nearby Attractions:

The campground is close to the historic town of Hamburg, once a stomping ground for wealthy fly fisherman and sportsmen, including author Zane Grey. Crumpled structures and rock foundations are all that remain of Hamburg's erstwhile structures, including Johnston's Store and Hotel, Bailey Post Office and Bucket of Blood Saloon.
