Linn County Campgrounds to Open April 15

The Linn County Conservation Department invites you to connect with nature by spending some quality time outdoors camping this year. The popular modern campgrounds at Buffalo Creek Park, Morgan Creek Park, Pinicon Ridge Park, and Wanatee Park will open for the season by 8 a.m. on April 15.

A majority of the campsites at these parks have water and electric hook-ups. A firewood bundle is available to purchase at each campground for $6 each. Most all family campground sites are first-come, first-served with self-registration. Only A-loop at Wanatee Park and group camps at Morgan Creek Park and Pinicon Ridge Park can be reserved online in advance. 

The primitive (no water or electricity) Matsell Bridge Equestrian Campground and Mt. Hope also open April 15. The nearby Matsell Bridge Primitive Campground is open year round, as is primitive camping at the Wakpicada Natural Area. 

Learn more about policies, fees, and additional information about our campgrounds.

Campgrounds typically close for the season October 15.
