Valley of the Rogue State Park is nice and sure conveniently located - a bit close to the highway, so a little noise is noticeable, but not too bad.
Make sure you check out the registration station before picking your site. Reservations are accepted 2 days out and expected arrivals are listed on the white page to the right of the rate sign.
One thing to be aware of, explained a ranger, is that if a reservation comes in before the site is marked that you paid for it, the reservation takes precedence and you may have to move if you had planned an overlapping stay. So be sure to pay quickly!
Click here for site map Loops A (tents only); D&E (full hookups), F (E/W only). Click pic for site map. The sites are really large and nice, with spacious pull throughs available. This one is # D-23.
Right across the street is site # D-21, an example of a back-in.
This is the rear yard of Site # D-15, a back-in. There is a beautiful walking trail that hugs the river nearby.
This shows a couple of the sites in "F" loop. The rear sites are a bit further back from the highway here. Strange that the rates for this loop (E/W only) are the same as those with full hookups.
The ranger explained that the state is in the process of phasing out the sewer hookups here because the system is old and there is not enough money to update it properly.

Malia's 2 cents: How sad that our state parks are suffering from such a lack of funding that not only can they not afford to improve them, they are having to downgrade the services instead.
