This small, lightly used campground is best suited for tent camping. It occupies a low bluff above Steamboat Creek near the Canton Creek confluence and is a popular place to swim in summer. Firs, maples, alders, and cedars shade the sites. A day-use area claims the upper end of the camp, and a memorial honors three Douglas County law enforcement officers who lost their lives in a helicopter crash nearby. Both Steamboat and Canton Creeks are closed to angling to protect spawning steelhead and salmon, but the North Umpqua River is open for catchandrelease fly fishing. Steamboat Falls, upstream from the camp via FR 38, is worth visiting and photographing; in the fall look for spawning chinooks.
