North Fork Park – A Riverside Picnic place

While my husband and I were out exploring near Salem, we stumbled on this awesome picnic area just 1/2 hour outside of Salem…



Take a short walk down the path through a beautiful grove of trees,


Down the winding stairs


to a beautiful beach on the Little North Fork of the Santiam River.


There is a swimming hole,


and a beautiful beach to stroll along.


Picnic tables and trash cans are provided.  It’s absolutely beautiful~

What better place to spend a lazy summer day?

      Thanks for stopping by!! It is a beautiful, quiet place. At least the day we went. I’m thinking with these hot summer days it is most likely far busier!
