Camping near the north umpqua

Have a trip coming up to the North umpqua in September and went online today to book a site at susan creek and see that they stop taking reservations september 15. Does anyone know if you can still walk up and camp there after that or is the campground completely shut down? if the later where is the next best place to camp?

Quite a few good camping options. Subjectively some are better than others, but itís a beautiful river to camp beside anywhere you go. Thereís good fishing nearby most spots, and itís not that far to cruise up or downriver to any other holes you might want to fish. Iíd just go, find a camp you like when you get there. FWIW, Susan creek is the one camp I personally donít care as much for... its all subjective

Pretty sure they'll lock the gate and bathrooms at Bogus. Seems that Sept 8 is a bit early, though. Horseshoe Bend stays open through the end of September.

Susan Creek and Bogus Creek lock up on the 15th, I think. Perhaps Bogus is a week earlier.

you'll have no trouble finding camping on the NU after September 15

Susan Creek stays open until late October, it's all first come first served after the reservation period. Click the 'Need to Know' tab on the link below.

I'm guessing other campgrounds are open beyond the reservable dates, if you call the Ranger station they'd be able to tell you for sure.

Yep, this too. Iíve stayed at Dogwood in the cooler winter months and offers a great budget, no frills lodging. Canít remember if all units had kitchens or not, but ours did and was very reasonably priced. I usually prefer camping along the river, but sometimes itís nice to have a cozy room to hole up in after fishing

We stayed at Eagle Rock a couple weeks ago, little further up the canyon but an enjoyable drive down to the well known runs, still found some nice water to fish at the campground as well. One thing I was wondering, is there much in the way of BLM camping along the NU? Saw plenty of forest service roads but we only saw campers in established campgrounds. If you're willing to drive up a dirt road, is there dispersed camping available?

Dispersed camping is allowed, unless posted. For instance, there are areas in the lower fly water that are posted day use only.

I've thrown down in the dirt a few times there and never been hassled.
