Collier Memorial State Park, Chiloquin

4.8
#73 of 147 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.

    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.

    Living history day which matches up to fathers day is a must do once in your life. The museum is well organized and I am always amazed at how clean it is.

    The water is crystal clear and every bit as blue as the pictures make it look. In July I can't stand in the water for long without my legs going numb. Gorgeous piece of nature, and it can double as a rest stop :)
