Campgrounds in Salem Oregon

Looking ahead here - what's a good campground in Salem Oregon? Would be there in August.

Of course I found some using Google, but would like feedback from those that have actually camped at them.

Thanks!

Around Salem, nothing beats Silver Park Falls State Park. Reserve early!

Campgrounds in Salem Oregon

We stayed at Silver Falls SP. It was very lightly occupied because of the off season, and it rained quite a bit. Still, we were on a great trip, and we had a great time. I can imagine it's quite a different place in the summer.

At Silver Falls State Park, absolutely during the rainy season you'll want to be in B Loop. A Loop, may be closed, but even if it's not it's dark, dark, dark all day long. That can be wonderful if it's hot, not so good if it's cool and rainy.

Silver Falls is Oregon premier state park. LOTS of gorgeous water falls... and dogs are NOT allowed on the trails. If you have a dog, keep that in mind.

We stayed at Silver Falls last July for 2 nights. Just loved it there! Amazing waterfalls and trails. A real hidden gem. Highly recommend.
Will you have your new trailer then?

Nope, not by this August. Looking towards August 2017.

Thanks for the thumbs up on this campsite. I'll probably try it out before August 2017.

waterfall experience

Highly recommend Silver Falls State Park. The wonderful trail system, built by the CCC in the 1930's, includes two places where the trail goes behind a waterfall.

If you're interested in historic car tours... Marion County (Salem area) has many, many historic covered bridges. Pretty neat
