Cougar Crossing Campground
Willamette National Forest \ McKenzie Ranger District
Cougar Crossing Campground is open year-round. Until this year all sites were first-come-first-served. The popularity of the campground drove the decision to begin taking reservations for half the sites between early May and Labor Day. Outside those dates all 11 sites are still first-come-first-served. Check rates, availability and directions here: Recreation.gov \ Cougar Crossing
Cougar Crossing lies at the south end of Cougar Reservoir on the South Fork of McKenzie River. Vault toilets and garbage disposal are provided but no drinking water is available. Incredible hiking opportunities abound in Three Sisters Wilderness and French Pete Trail. Campers enjoy soaking in Terwilliger Hot Springs; just 2 miles away.
