Collier Memorial State Park

Near Klamath Falls, Oregon, United States

Park Information

Collier Memorial State Park features a campground, outdoor museum of historic logging equipment, relocated pioneer village and a new four-corral, primitive horse camp and trailhead. At the state's finest logging museum, you'll see rare and antique logging equipment dating to the 1880s, as well as more recent pieces.

The Williamson River and crystal-clear Spring Creek converge in the park. The river is regionally famous for its quality trout fishery that consistently produces trophy fish. Spring Creek gushes dramatically out of a nearby spring, painting a picture-perfect scene as it flows through the park.

From the equestrian trailhead located in the horse camp, you can ride north from the park across Winema National Forest land to the Jackson F. Kimball State Recreation Site and beyond.

Whether you come for the day to visit the logging museum, play along Spring Creek or camp among the pines along the Williamson River—you'll discover a grand adventure at Collier.

History

The first lands acquired for this park were given in 1945 by Alfred D. and Andrew Collier of Klamath Falls as a memorial to their parents, Charles Morse Collier and Janet McCormack Collier. Later, the Colliers gave or helped in the acquisition of other tracts up through 1962. A final tract was obtained from the U. S. Forest Service in 1981. The main attraction within the park is the logging museum featuring equipment used in the Klamath Basin and eastern Oregon over the past century. The Colliers, partly through their ownership of the Swan Lake Moulding Company in Klamath Falls, amassed a variety of logging and lumbering equipment of great interest.
