Oak Bottom Campground is located on a gently sloping hillside in a mixed Douglas fir and hardwood forest. It offers a peaceful environment, free from road noise and other distractions. Located near California's Salmon River on the Klamath National Forest (though it is currently managed by the Six Rivers National Forest), the campground is popular with whitewater enthusiasts in the spring. Many challenging rapids ranging from class 3 to 5 are a short distance away. Swimming is also popular in the summer, and numerous river accesses are a short drive or walk from the campground. In the fall, salmon and steelhead fishing in the Klamath River are within a 15 minute drive.
The small town of Somes Bar is 2.5 miles from the campground, where propane, groceries, post office, and tackle are available at the store.
