We stopped off for a lasagna dinner in the nearest city. I think it might have been Roseburg, OR, but I'm not certain about that. Whatever it was called, it was pretty small.
Though we made it to the campground without a lot of daylight left, we were still able to see one waterfall - Shadow Falls. We hiked just under a mile and arrived just before it became too dark to get a decent picture.
Cavitt Falls campground itself was pretty decent for being a campground without facilities. It was only $8 a night, and the outhouse was clearly well looked after, well lit, and even smelled decent. And Cavitt Falls the waterfall makes for a cute little swimming hole.
I could see this much (left pic) from the trail, but Oscar bushwhacked down to the base and got the above pics and the one on the right.
Just across the street from the Yakso Falls trail is a campground with 2 more trails. One trail leads to Tributary Falls and Middle Hemlock Falls. I'm not sure which of these 3 small drops qualifies as which falls.
The other trail in the campground leads to Lower Hemlock Falls. This one was fairly pretty, and I braved walking out onto a scary log to get a better view of it. It wasn't terribly far from the ground, but I have the world's worst balance and nearly fell off getting out to where I need to be.
Oscar had a fun time playing in the spray. It would have made for a pretty intense shower. I kept my distance off to the side.
We then drove out of the Little River Valley and made our way into the Idleyld Park area to get to Susan Creek Falls campground. This is a fairly popular campground that fills up quickly (most Oregon campgrounds are first come/first serve) since it's right in between Eugene, OR and Crater Lake. It's also has showers and flush toilets for $14 a night. It was nice to get a warm shower after all of our hiking that day. Before showering, though, we checked out Deadline Falls. I saw a really big salmon trying to jump the falls in its attempt to swim upstream. We saw a few other small ones too.
And of course, we couldn't stay at Susan Creek Falls campground without also hiking to Susan Creek Halls. It's definitely another one that would be nicer in the Spring, but it was still pretty.
