Cavitt Creek Falls

Located roughly 25 miles east of Roseburg, Cavitt Creek Falls Recreation Site is a popular destination for summer getaways. This place offers a variety of activities such as swimming, cliff jumping, hiking, picnicking, and camping.

The crystal-clear water of the creek is collected from one or two channels (depends on the water level) of Cavitt Creek Falls into a deep colorful pool. The pool and 7-foot falls are encased by solid rocks.

Surrounded by the North Umpqua National Forest, Cavitt Creek Falls is an excellent spot to cool off on a hot summer day.

This site offers 10 individual campsites, available on a first-come, first-served basis, and a day-use area. Trout fishing with artificial flies and lures is open from Cavitt Creek and Little River from late May through mid-September. Contact the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife for their regulations and exact season dates.

Cautions: Cliff jumping and slippery rocks are associated with risks, please use caution and make safe decisions.
