Apple Creek campground - North Umpqua National Forest OR
The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) had a camp at Steamboat Creek from 1933 to 1941. It was a US Forest Service camp serving Umpqua National Forest. The enrollees made many improvements along the North Umpqua River, including campgrounds, trails and bridges.
One of the campgrounds developed by the CCC was Apple Creek along the North Umpqua River and Highway 138. It is a small, plain campground without special features.
Apple Creek Campground was closed when we visited in 2022, probably a carryover from the pandemic. The entrance sign is covered in black plastic, which may be protection against winter deterioration, but the campground looks rather neglected.
