can't think of any cabins, but fishermans bend, the state park, and john neal all have nice spots to camp on the north santiam, with fishing within walking distance

we were thinking about waterloo but mom does not want to camp in a tent and i think the smaller kids would whine too. otherwise i would be camping on a secluded part of the river or a place without cabins. ill take a look into john neal. might try to find a few other places on different rivers as well.

There are cabins up in Detroit, with close access to the lake, Santiam and Breitenbush (which opens Saturday for trout....yessss) but in MHO....nothing better than tent camping and I can't wait....hopefully my first one of the year is on the Crooked, though.

There are cabins on the east side of the cascades. Those streams have resident bows and other trout. Places like sunriver come to mind. ORRRRR, you can leave the girls at home and just have a guy's camping trip!!!

you will be limited to the coastal rivers then, you wont even make detroit in an hour, much less central oregon. better learn how to tent camp
