Camp Comfort Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This attractive camp is nestled in a grove of old-growth trees. Sugar pines, firs, hemlocks, and cedars scratch the sky; rhododendrons and vine maples fill out the midstory. A steep slope separates the camp from the South Umpqua River, but you can reach the river via the 0.25-mile, barrier-free Camp Comfort Trail. Because the end of this trail is relatively steep and topped with loose gravel, wheelchair users will probably want to turn around sooner. The trail leads through lovely woods, offers river overlooks, and ends where the Castle Rock and Black Rock Forks combine to form the river. Downstream from the confluence is a swimming hole, but be careful of the rock ledges along the sides of the pool. You can also take a 6.3-mile drive downstream to view South Umpqua Falls, a combination bedrock waterslide and broken-ledge chute."
