Best Places to Stay
For Highway 97 Camping

Collier Memorial State Park – Chiloquin

The Collier Memorial State Park is a favorite Highway 97 camping site for those who like to relax and get away from the big city (Klamath Falls). The fishing is not too bad either since the Williamson River is famous for its trout. If you like canoeing or kayaking, a trip to the source of Spring Creek only takes about an hour each way.

The historical buff will enjoy the self-guided tour through the Logging Museum and Pioneer Village. After touring the site you’ll come away with a better appreciation of what it took for our forefathers to live and to harvest the timber.

This state park also features a day-use area across the highway from the Logging Museum and another area on another road past the museum. In the summer months movies are shown at 9 p.m. and a naturalist leads short hikes along the Williamson River.

The camping area is open from April through October and reduced rates are available for April and October. The Logging Museum and day-use areas are open all year.
