Oak Bottom Campground
Oak Bottom Campground is across the road from the Salmon River, 3 miles from its confluence with the Klamath River. Visitors to the campground appreciate its relative seclusion away from Highway 96 and its proximity to the beautiful Salmon River. The campground actually falls within the Klamath National Forest, but it is administered by Six Rivers National Forest.
In the spring rafting and kayaking are popular in the area while come mid to late summer, water levels subside and relaxed swimming and tubing become the favorite pastime. In fall and winter steelhead fishing draws anglers to the campground.
Oak Bottom Campground offers 26 campsites on a gently sloping hillside for tents and small RVs and trailers. Sites are shaded by a mixture of madrone and Douglas firs. One double campsite is available. Many sites can be reserved while others are first-come, first-served.
