Tree of Heaven Campground
Tree of Heaven Campground is along the Klamath River in the Klamath National Forest, 7 miles west of Interstate 5 on Highway 96. The campground was named for a tree imported by 19th century Chinese residents of the area. The Tree of Heaven reminded them of their homeland. Visitors to the area enjoy fishing, rafting, and hiking. There is a concrete boat ramp and concrete, accessible sidewalk to the water's edge. Ample parking is available for trailers. A short interpretive trail is near the campground. The campground also has a large group day use area with a volleyball court and horseshoe pit.
Cautions: Because of rapids and waterfalls on the river, the Forest Service cautions, "Boaters and rafters should research the river thoroughly before attempting to navigate on their own." Due to swift currents, swimmers and waders are cautioned to use care and only go in the water when levels are safe.
Tree of Heaven Campground features 21 shaded campsites for RVs, trailers, and tents. Ten of the sites can accommodate RVs up to 35 to 40 feet, the others from 25 to 38 feet. The paved road into the campground, however, is steep, narrow, and winding. Many of the campsites can be reserved.
