Eagleview Group Campground is situated between the Pacific Coast and the city of Roseburg, Oregon. Its location on the Umpqua River caters to avid anglers and water sport enthusiasts while the grassy field and horseshoe pits offered onsite, provide more casual recreation options closer to the campground.
Eagleview is situated along the Umpqua River in southwestern Oregon. It is only one of two rivers in Oregon with headwaters that begin high up in the Cascade Mountains and meander on down to the Pacific Ocean. The campground lies in a broad river canyon surrounded by deeply forested mountainsides.
The name, Umpqua, is a surviving term of the Native American Umpqua language, and translates to "thundering waters," "satisfied," or "across the waters."
Fishing enthusiasts will enjoy the chance to catch chinook salmon, coho, steelhead or smallmouth bass depending on the season. Float the river on a kayak or canoe or just swim in the cool Umpqua waters on a hot summers day. These are just a few of the many things to do at Eagleview.
The campground has 10 campsites that will accommodate up to 100 campers. There is also a group picnic area, covered pavilion and a large fire pit for group gatherings. The grassy field is ideal for bocce ball, croquet or throwing around a Frisbee. Horseshoe pits are also on-site.
The Umpqua River Scenic Byway offers travelers the opportunity to drive along the Umpqua River from Interstate 5 to the coastal communities of Reedsport and Winchester Bay. Along the byway lies the town of Elkton, well-known for its wineries. West of Elkton is the Dean Creek Elk Viewing Area, where spotting majestic Roosevelt Elk near the roadway is almost guaranteed. The Pacific Ocean is roughly 45 miles from Eagleview via Highway 138.
