Collier Memorial State Park, Chiloquin

4.8
#70 of 153 in Nature in Oregon
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.

  • Loved the logging museum! I'm a gear head, so there was plenty for me to enjoy. The displays are well done and make for great teaching moments with kids. The staff that was present for Christmas at the Cookhouse event seemed to really enjoy sharing their knowledge with us. Go venture back in history, relish the beautiful forest and mountain scenery around you, and take a step out of the modern rat-race for an afternoon.
  • Beautiful wooded park with lots of grass. Clean restrooms. Two Rivers that merge right in the park, lots of wildlife.
  • Beautiful park next to wood river. Great place for outdoor wedding. Half hour drive to Crater Lake from here
  • Camping here was good, very clean, flush toilets with hot water sinks and free showers. The only downside was that the campsites were a little too close together. Might want to check out the campground just down the dirt road. Pit toilets and cold water only, but the sites were away from each other. Price there was $10 a night I think. Collier was nice, but if you like more primitive check it out.
  • Some amazing machinery and history to be learned at the logging museum across the highway. Nice restrooms and clean.
