“Interesting displays and great campground”

Collier Memorial State Park
Ranked #1 of 6 things to do in Chiloquin
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Collier State Park is a fun place to visit. It has a nice, well-maintained campground on the banks of the Williamson River. You can make reservations but generally there is space available. It is close to Crater Lake National Park - don't miss this wonder of the world. Collier State Park also has a fine logging museum so if you come from a timber family (or even if you don't) you will find this interesting, as well as the pioneer cabins. Spring Creek runs into the Williamson River at Collier Park, and is a nice creek for fishing and floating, but too cold for swimming. I believe that the Williamson River is a catch-and-release river in this area, so check your state regulations before fishing. There are whoppers in the Williamson. The nearby town of Chiloquin has grocery stores, restaurants, churches, and a gas station. There is also an amazing new-and-used bookstore there that has many out-of-print, hard-to-find books, and you won't want to miss the Chiloquin cultural center with some impressive art work. Klamath Falls is another 35 miles or so from Collier Park, but there are fine museums there as well.

With the exception of the mosquitoes...LOTS of them, we loved this place. We drove to Collier as a destination for a weekend. The campground was completely full both nights. The park hosts kept the sites absolutely spotless. We watched as folks pulled out to be on their way, and the park hosts were there raking and making sure the site was ready for it's next tenant.

Nice walk along the river to the Logging and Sawmill Museum. If you are into logging and sawmills, this place is amazing. Having spent many years in the lumber industry, it renewed my awe of the people who worked in the woods. Dangerous and under appreciated occupations.

We recommend the campground, and a visit to the Museum. Make sure you take citronella and mosquito repellent if you stay at the campground. HIGHLY necessary unless you spend all your time in your RV.

WOW! Arrived without reservations, on a Saturday and there was 1 spot left! How lucky! I have several camping apps on my phone and was assured by the apps that this was a "first-come first-serve" campground... until this year. MAKE A RESERVATION! Camping areas are spaced appropriately with full, partial or no hook-ups. Firepit is a plus with me! Firewood is available. Around 20 miles from Crater Lake, off the highway 97 path but can hear the highway noise slightly. Friendly camp hosts and ranger! Family and pet friendly!
