Collier Memorial State Park
Open: Open April through October 31
Number of Sites: 68
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 (download the museum guide; requires Acrobat).
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.

Nice campground, but...
Collier is pretty nice with all paved camping spots including the tent sites. Very clean and well shaded for hot days. Two draw backs are the close proximity of the sites (the neighbors can hear you breath) and the the fact that the campground is not right on the beautifull Williamson River. In fact you have to go up the road to the day use area or over to a nearby Forest Service campground to access the river.
