  • Toketee Campground is a dry campground so we'll need to purify water!

  • 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."
