2019, Oct. 3-6: Fall NOG - 2019 Northern Oregon Gathering

Oct. 3-6, 2019 Silver Falls State Park (near Salem, Oregon)

Due a 'broken' website, and a number of phone calls by Kathie N. (Dave&Kathie) to ReserveAmerica and the Oregon State Park system, we're now able to make reservations!

People call it the 'crown jewel' of the Oregon State Parks system, and once you visit, you know why. Silver Falls State Park is the kind of standout scenic treasure that puts Oregon firmly onto the national - and international - stage.

There are a TOTAL of 52 sites with electric and water at Silver Falls State Park. Two in B loop are ADA compliant. There are four yurts in B loop with trailer site parking attached. Two of those are ADA compliant. There are 10 electric and water sites in A loop at the far north end. (see attached map). If you want to attend Fall NOG, do not delay getting your reservations. To view photos of specific sites: Silver Falls State Park - Campsite Photos and Camping Information

This should be a great time to visit Silver Falls State Park. Oregon's Premier State Park! http://oregonstateparks.org/index.cf...age&parkId=151

You can either make reservations online ReserveAmerica or 1-800-452-5687 http://www.reserveamerica.com/campin...&parkId=402235

Check out these sites for flower activities in the area: The Oregon Garden in Silverton, Oregon. Which also has "The Gordon House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright." Oregon Garden an 80-acre Botanical Garden In Silverton Oregon Frank Lloyd Wright - The Gordon House - Home

The park doesn't rent/reserve shelters for use after Sept. 30. So, IF the weather is nice, we'll hold the Fri./Sat. meetups in my site. Otherwise, there's a couple of nice shelters we may be able to use. THAT decision will be made on SUNDAY, Sept. 29.

I've chosen site B3 and as usual will keep a park map updated and a list of names going for those that have made reservations here: https://www.casitaforum.com/invboard...gon-gathering/

Hi Donna! Have not been here before. Looking at campsite photos am interested in tent sites 46-65 as are on creek. There are rv sites still available but want the perfect site w some privacy. Your thoughts? Thanks, Julie

Julie, because this is a fall gathering and Silver Falls is a fairly high elevation, if you CAN, get a site with services. All the unserviced tent sites are beautiful, but they're back in a heavily treed area. IF it's cold, you may be VERY cold. However, if you're looking for privacy, you'll probably get it because it's doubtful too many people will be back there.


I hope this helps. And hope to see you there!

Thank you Donna. Just the advice I was seeking.

You are most welcome. I can only tell you about myself. I'm a very private person. I mean.. look at my goofy avatar! That's not me. When I camp by myself, I want privacy and quiet. But gatherings are different... in the morning I fix myself a cup of coffee, step outside my trailer and look around. WHO has a campfire going and do I need to bring a chair? For me, gatherings are less about 'camping' and more about meeting the people.

I wish you well
