Armitage County Park

This beautiful campground is located inside a Lane County park, on the outskirts of Eugene, OR.  The park provides lots of picnic areas and fields, a horseshoe pit, boat ramp, 2 acre leash-free dog park, hiking trails and a volleyball pit or two.

The campground itself has approximately 31 full hook-up sites,  as well as tent sites and group sites in a lush, wooded area. There are some pull through sites.  Each site is allowed one RV and two tents or three tents - making this a great place to meet up with friends or let kids have a side-adventure.  If you reserve online you will be told if your site has strong, fair or weak wifi. The sites along the river have "weak" which means you can see they are there and may be able to log on, but won't be able to post or upload photos or videos, unless you have a wifi extender.  The sites near the camp office have "strong" wifi.


The bathroom/showers are CLEAN and well-maintained. The laundry room is state of the art, shiny and again CLEAN and well-maintained.  A load of wash is $2 and the dryers are .25 for 15 minutes.
The highlights of this campground are the hiking trails - right alongside the McKenzie river at mile 7.3, as well a Crilly Trail.  Armitage boasts lots of fishing spots and swimming holes, boating etc.

The day use park closes at dusk and the park becomes very quiet. Lane county does a great job of maintaining this campground. With the full hook ups and laundry, minus the pools and hot tubs....Armitage feels like a blend of state campground and RV Park.  We'll stay again. It's a blessing to so quickly find a nice campground close to family so we can make lots of visits.
You can make reservations online  - and from what I see it's advisable to do. There is a reservation fee which doesn't go towards your camping fee.  We paid $30 per night. Reservations and Information - 541-682-2000; campground office 541-357-5481. Located at 90064 Coburg Road, Eugene, OR.
