Matthews Creek Campground
Matthews Creek Campground overlooks the South Fork Salmon River canyon in the Klamath National Forest, 37 miles west of Callahan and Highway 3. Portions of the Cecilville Road leading to the campground are narrow and winding, not recommended for large RVs or trailers. Many visitors to the campground take advantage of the whitewater rafting and kayaking. Convenient access points are found all along the river.
Other campers are attracted by the dramatic beauty of the area and not to mention the good fishing. Wading and swimming are possible in stunning emerald pools near the campground when water levels are safe. A trail leads down from the campground to a pebble beach.
Matthews Creek Campground has 10 campsites beneath pines and oaks for RVs, trailers, and tents. All campsites are first-come, first-served.
