4th of July Fun at Silver Falls

Over 100 people showed up to participate in our annual Independence Day Parade in the Silver Falls Campground! Spirits were high and decorations abounded as we snaked our way through the campground, joined by many of our community partners – staff from the Silver Falls Lodge and Conference Center, the YMCA Camp Silver Creek, and the Drakes Crossing Volunteer Fire Department, and a special appearance by our Junior Ranger mascot, JR Beaver. Thanks to all who joined us – we hope to see you all again next year!

Non-campers are welcome to join in the festivities throughout the day but are asked to park in the South Falls Day-Use Area with a valid parking pass and walk the approximately 1/2 mile to the campground by following the paved bike path paralleling Silver Creek.  Reminder:  The Day-Use Area gate closes @ 9pm.

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  1. Grab your Flashlight (if you’re attending the evening program) and park your vehicle in the South Falls Day-Use Area
  2. Use the bridge next to the swimming area to cross over Silver Creek
  3. Take a left and follow the paved path across Highway 214 (watch for cars!) to the Campground.  The parade decoration area is next to the campground playground.  The amphitheater is next to site #43.
