McKenzie Bridge is an unincorporated community in Lane County, Oregon, United States, on the McKenzie River and within Willamette National Forest. It is located along Oregon Route 126, about 53 miles east of Eugene, between Rainbow and Belknap Springs.

McKenzie Bridge was the home of the National Register of Historic Places listed Log Cabin Inn until March 29, 2006, when it was destroyed by fire.[1] Some historic auxiliary buildings remain.

The McKenzie River Ranger Station,[2] originally the site of the 1934 Civilian Conservation Corps Camp Belknap,[3] is located in McKenzie Bridge. Jennie B. Harris county park is nearby.[4]

The McKenzie Bridge State Airport is about four miles east of the community.[5]
