5 / ABOUT THE CAMPGROUND
Longbow Organization Camp was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. The historic campground provides a covered cooking area with a fireplace and six sleep shelters that face the beautiful South Santiam River.
The campground spans 10 acres on a bend of the South Santiam River. The river is fed by runoff from the Cascade Mountains and flows for 66 miles. The Menagerie Wilderness is located nearby. Elk can sometimes be seen in early May in an elk pasture one mile from Longbow.
No tents or trailers allowed at this site. No electric hookups are available
The camp is listed as wheelchair accessible. I am looking into the particulars of this. If you have further questions about accessibility, please email me.
