Tent Trailer Camping With Family on The Umpqua
A 33.8-mile section of the North Umpqua is classified as a Wild and Scenic River and is restricted to fly-fishing only. It is considered one of the best streams in the Pacific Northwest to fly-fish for salmon and steelhead. For those not looking to fish, whitewater rafting is an alternate activity here, and it offers everything from tame Class I rapids to adrenaline-pumping Class IV rapids. There’s 100’s of camping sites along the river to suit every family camping adventure.
The Umpqua, Adventures, and Fun
If you are interested in learning about why the North Umpqua River is so special, stop and talk with conservationist and FishWatch caretaker Lee Spencer, of the Big Bend Pool of Steamboat Creek, about 10 miles up from the Steamboat Inn on Highway 138. This quiet sanctuary holds a deep, cold pool, where hundreds of native steelhead take refuge in the heat of the summer while waiting for fall rains to send them to their spawning grounds. Spencer camps here in an Airstream trailer year after year to protect the fish in this no-fishing zone from possible poachers, who, in past years, have decimated the entire population before they’ve had a chance to spawn. He has a vast amount of knowledge about the North Umpqua fishery and the surrounding area, and his quiet fortitude makes me want to come back year after year. This is a great activity if you’re into road biking. The road up to Big Bend Pool offers a short, fun climb to blow off some steam mid-afternoon.
