Scaredman Recreation Site
Roseburg District | OR
Season Dates: 2014 - 2014
Because of federal budget constraints, Scaredman Campground will be closed to overnight camping in 2013. The day use area will remain open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.. A little more primitive than other area campgrounds, this 10 site campground is an ideal destination for the harried city dweller wanting to get away from it all. Adjacent to Canton Creek, a tributary of the North Umpqua River, the site is located near a popular swimming hole about a quarter-mile away. Although the creek is closed to fishing, world-class fly fishing is available nearby on the North Umpqua River.
