Boondocking on the Williamson River

After spending a couple of days scouting out boondocking locations in the Klamath Falls/Chiloquin, OR area we settled on a fabulous location 30 miles east of Chiloquin in the Winema National Forest.

Head Of The River Campground is a National Forest rustic campground situated at the spring that feeds the Williamson River. A small campground with only 5 sites and only two that could accommodate a 30 foot (or less) rig.   The other three sites would only work for tent camping.

With no one there, we lucked out and got the bigger of the two which was right on the river. A large sight with a fire pit, picknick table and large grassy area.

We spent a peaceful 7 days with no one else around. We saw the ranger twice and had a few people drive by but we were the only campers.  There were hardly any mosquitos or bugs and the weather was absolutely perfect tho we did wake up one morning to 29 degrees!  Brrr!  But the days warmed up quickly and we had perfect amount of sun on the solar panels to keep us going every day.

There is a 14 day stay limit at this campground and absolutely no fee which made it perfect for us!

After running out of beer (we still had plenty of water and food lol) we headed back to town to figure out where to go next.  We ended up going to Rocky Point Resort for a couple of days to sit by Klamath Lake and catch up on laundry and to restock. More on that place in the next post!

For now we are back on the road and headed to Lake Tahoe, Nevada side.  While we really enjoyed Oregon and would love to explore it more, Lake Tahoe is on Mark’s bucket list so off we go!

Thanks for stopping by!! 😊

Crater Lake 

 
We took a quick drive up to Crater Lake while out scouting for boondocking locations in the Chiloquin, OR area. 

It was pretty crowded as the day was absolutely perfect but we were blown away with the beauty of this place. 

 
We took a few photos and then headed back into the Winema-Fremont National Forest to do our scouting. 

     

We found a great location to boondocking at a remote FREE location. We will not have cell reception and we plan on being there at least a week so we will post again when we get back to civilization! 😊

Kla-Mo-Ya Casino Overnight Parking

Saturday – July 18, 2015 IMG_2504 We left Caldwell, Idaho Saturday morning with really no plans other than to make it to the Crater Lake area in Oregon.

After leaving Bend, OR we headed south on Hwy 97 towards Crater Lake. Not really knowing the area, we decided to just finding a place to park for the night.

Thanks to Nina of Wheeling It for her fantastic review of the Kla-Mo-Ya Casino, we decided that’s where we would head.  We pulled in and saw the designated area for RVs and found a spot along the perimeter that would work.

We enjoyed a nice meal at the casino resteraunt and then played a few slots before going back to our rig and relaxing outside with a drink. We met some of the other RVers parked here and found that one of them had been here for a week! Apparently there is no stay limit here.

We only stayed the one night before moving on, but for an overnight stop it can’t be beat.  And thanks to our handy dandy RV Solar and battery bank we enjoyed a wonderful evening at home!

Yeah!! We made it to Oregon!! Time to explore this beautiful state!
