This developed facility has vault toilets, fire rings, picnic tables, garbage collection, and hand-pumped drinking water and lends itself to recreational shoots, particularly fly-fishing or easy water sports.
Located in the Willamette National Forest, Frissell Crossing campground resides at 2,600 feet in elevation with creek access. Douglas fir, rhododendrons, and vine maple surround this serene retreat.
This beautiful and quiet campground lies on the South Fork of the McKenzie River and was originally constructed in 1934 by the Civilian Conservation Corps. It is located well away from the main road and some of the sites spread around an open meadow.
It’s useful for filming due to the natural beauty of the location, the easy access to the river, bridge and available parking for production vehicles. as shown in these images, it’s particularly stunning during the Fall season when the leaves are changing color. The highway leading to it is also stunning at that time.
