I just got this report from a couple: The sighting was at Rock Creek in the Siskiyou Mountains in Southwestern Oregon on November 23, 2013. The couple, their names I’ll not publish, had been camping at Daphine Grove on the #33 mainline for two days. On Friday they moved the camp trailer to Rock Creek Campground some 5 miles south. Friday night they sat around the campfire and talked till around midnight. They went to bed only to be awakened at 3: AM by the family dog barking near the trailer door. The dog would not settle down and was very agitated. First thing they remembered was that they were in the campground alone. No other campers around to suspect being the cause. The husband opened the door after around 15 minutes to have a look outside at the camp. He saw nothing so they went back to bed and nothing happened for the remainder of the night. The next morning after breakfast they hiked the old trail up to Azalea Lake. The husband told me the lake was nearly impossible to walk around because downed snags were thick along the lake shore. They spent a good deal of the morning looking over the lake and surrounding land. They went back to camp at 11AM. When they returned to the campground they noticed someone had torn the small woodpile apart and scattered the wood all around.
The husband believed it to be a black bear because the coffee grounds from the pot near the fire pit had been emptied and bears do like coffee grounds. They stacked the wood back up near the fire and ate lunch. About 2 PM they noticed a loud knocking sound coming from up on the mountain somewhere. It was a loud wood knocking with periods of silence then more knocking. This went on for over an hour. They discussed what the sound might be and the husband thought it could be a buck deer hitting its horns against a tree. Finally the sound quit and they settled in for the evening.
At 4 PM they were sitting around the fire having coffee when the wife saw movement behind a tree in the next campsite. It was really just a quick flash of something dark in color she explained. She asked her husband if bears come close to people on purpose. He told her they don't as a habit. She was explaining to the husband where she saw the dark shadow. When she pointed over to the tree they both noticed a large head looking from behind the tree at them.
They both bolted for the trailer because the head was not a bear’s but something somewhat human shaped. He looked out the trailer window and saw the outline of something very large walk on two legs from the tree to another large tree. He explained it was covered in dark hair and massive in size compared to a normal human. After that they waited for some time with nothing moving outside. They threw their few outside belongings into the pickup bed and left the campground.
They didn't return to the camp till the next morning. Nothing had been disturbed expect once again the coffee pot was empty of grounds and the small pile of wood was again scattered. They are convinced they saw a bigfoot, not a bear. He walked to the tree the next morning and approximately measured the height of the head from the ground and he believes it was 9 feet 2 inches from the base of the tree.
