Big Indian Cottonwoods Camp

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Big Indian Creek at Cottonwoods Camp, Big Indian Gorge (bobcat)
Checkerspots on orange sneezeweed (Hymenoxys hoopsii) near Cottonwoods Camp (bobcat)


This old stockman's camp is the first good campsite in the Big Indian Gorge, 6 1/2 miles in from the trailhead. It also marks the end of the jeep track that ran up the gorge. There are the remains of a corral nearby. The creek runs all year, and a perennial waterfall splashes down the gorge face just south of the campsite. Tall, rustling cottonwoods shade the site, and there is also room to camp across the creek.
