Indian Mary Park

Campground Description:  Indian Mary Park is owned and operated by Josephine County.  Like All Josephine County parks, Indian Mary is financially supported by day use and camping fees only.  Aside from being a beautiful park, Indian Mary Park has historic significance as at 61 acres it once was the smallest Indian reservation in the nation.  The park is situated on the banks of the Rouge River, offering both fishing and swimming opportunities.  In addition to the camping sites, the park also offers volleyball, Frisbee golf, 2 playgrounds, horseshoes and miles of hiking trails.  Indian Mary Park is a destination park, so plan on a long stay in order to enjoy all that Indian Mary Park has to offer.  Full services and shopping is available in Grants Pass (approximately 21 miles).  All loops except the "D" Loop are closed from October through the end of March.  The "D" Loop is open year-round offering hot showers and flush toilets year round.  No running water at the campsites during the winter.

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds.  The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site.  Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide.  Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do allow RV camping but not tent camping.  If in doubt, call the campground first.

The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners.  In this way we ensure that every description in this free guide is unbiased.  Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tent camping and all types of RV camping.  While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.

Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions.  New campgrounds are added weekly.
