4.8/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web
Collier Memorial State Park features a campground; outdoor museum of historic logging equipment; relocated pioneer village; and a new four-corral, primitive horse camp and trailhead. At the state's finest logging museum, you'll see rare and antique logging equipment dating to the 1880s, as well as more recent pieces.

Railroad buffs will enjoy learning about the role the railroad played in logging. You can imagine the rugged woodsmen and the immense task of moving raw timber with innovation and brute force. The pioneer village gives you another insight into how these families once lived.

The Williamson River and crystal-clear Spring Creek converge in the park. The Williamson River is regionally famous for its quality trout fishery and consistently produces trophy fish. Spring Creek gushes dramatically out of a nearby spring, and then paints a picture-perfect scene as it flows through the park.

In the summer, movies about old-time logging and other topics are shown at 9 p.m. every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The series continues right through Labor Day. During the day, the park naturalist schedules short hikes along the Williamson River. Check the park when you arrive for a list of times.

From the equestrian trailhead, you can ride north from the park across national forest land to the Jackson F. Kimball State Recreation Site and beyond.

Whether you come for the day to visit the logging museum, the pioneer village, or play along Spring Creek or even camp amongst the pines along the Williamson River - you'll discover a grand adventure at Collier.

  • Outstanding Oregon State Park. All services: water, electricity and sewer hookups, and a dump station. Beautiful surroundings with lots of Pines & forest area, the Williamson River and Spring Creek for fishing, swimming or playing. Clean bathrooms, showers, AND laundry area. There is also a Day Use Area that is very nice with picnic tables, rest rooms, and a small shelter. Actually saw Rangers cleaning up camp areas for the next group. Love Oregon State Parks!
  • Beautiful, serene, quiet park with amazing river and awesome picnicking. Perfect rest stop with the family!
  • Went for kayaking on Spring Creek, spend a few minutes looking around and should've stayed longer. Lots of neat stuff to look at around the museum.
  • The day use area and outdoor museum are a great stop along the highway. Clean bathrooms and a nice 1-hour self guided stroll. Very scenic river access. Nice interpretive center too, with friendly volunteers. Anyone who loves logging or trains or trucks will have a good time. Bring your mosquito repellant though!
  • Great museum. Family friendly. Educational.
