Paradise Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A quintessential Oregon riverside campground, the aptly named Paradise was built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps—as were many of the nicest and most durable recreational facilities in the state. It’s the kind of place you see once and dream about for years: a string of perfectly laid-out campsites pocketed away beside the mighty McKenzie River, surrounded by old-growth Douglas ﬁr and cedar trees strung with thick green moss. This is Oregon tent camping at its ﬁnest... which, sadly, means it can often be tough to snag a spot here.
Luckily, there are several other campgrounds along this road, many of them almost as nice—but this is our favorite. For the best chances of getting a spot, as well as the opportunity to be completely surrounded by intense fall colors, visit Paradise at the tail end of the season, just before it closes for the winter."
