About the Park
Nestled on the banks of the McKenzie River and Olallie Creek, Olallie Campground provides a superb setting for a getaway into nature. The lower loop offers mesmerizing views of both the river and the creek while the upper loop is set further in the trees with many sites facing the creek. The McKenzie River is a tributary of the Willamette River that runs for 90 miles, flowing into the southernmost end of the Willamette Valley.
There are 16 campsites, for which 15 are reservable. Sites can accommodate vehicles and trailers up to 35 feet in length. There are 4 sites that have short parking spurs, on uneven slopes, and are recommended as tent sites only/not suitable for RV parking. Drinking water is available via one hand pump well which is located on the lower loop. There are two accessible double vault toilet buildings; one on the upper road and one on the lower. Trash receptacles are located in the campground.
