Notes:

  • Toketee Campground is a dry campground so we'll need to purify water!
  • This page claims that there are two campsites near the trailhead to the hot spring but the FS page on the train suggests that no camping is allowed and that we should set up at Toketee Lake
  • SoakOregon Info Page
  • Umpqua Hotspring Trailhead USFS Page
  • Near Toketee Lake Campground: "There are two spectacular waterfalls within a five-minute drive of the site. Watson Falls is 272 feet high and has a short trail to the base of the falls. During wetter months be prepared to get a cool shower of fresh mountain water. Toketee Falls is an amazing two level falls flowing out of a basalt column wall. The viewing platform is less than a half mile down the trail."
