At the confluence of Candle Creek and the Metolius River, this campground offers opportunities for fishing and hiking. This is a very popular campground with the locals because of its location. It is at the end of the Metolius Valley and on the river where the rapids start.

It is located 13 miles in from Hwy 20 at the Camp Sherman turn off. You get to it by crossing the river at Lower Bridge and continuing along a mostly gravel road for two more miles.
