Closed for season but convenient

Pulled in and the site looked great and was in a very convenient location, however is closed for the season. Facilities all looked neat and tidy. Maybe next year!

Enjoyed the quiet night

Enjoyed a last sunny weekend home at this campground. I am a tent camper and enjoyed the weekend. Quite and clean. Alot of spaces for larger groups and elbow room between most spaces.

Clean and quiet

This campground is a nice well maintained place with clean facilities and well dispersed sites. It was a bad fire season when we were there so it’s pretty smoky in my picture.

Clean bathrooms scattered throughout, water available. Nice tree cover and a River right at the edge of where we were. There’s trails and the lake close by too. Picnic tables and nice fire pits.

It was a very quiet place and has several loops in the campground.

Busy Campground- Great Location for Visiting the Area

There is nothing too amazing about this campground except it's location.  It's large and busy and full of people. There aren't many trees, and you're pretty much next to your neighbors. If you don't mind this type of camping, you will love the area.

You can practically walk to the alpine tram, you're right on Wallowa lake, there's a great marina and lake access for your boat or SUP, and you're just a few minutes drive to Joseph. 

Also, the sunsets are incredible. 

This is a busy location. Sites fill up fast.

Quiet Campground on the Edge of the Eagle Cap

Moss Springs is a quiet campground on the edge of the Eagle Cap about 9 miles up the a forest service road from Cove, OR (which is about 14 miles past La Grande).

Most people use this campground for parking to hike into the Minam Lodge or to backpack into the Little Minam, or to park their trailer to ride their horses into the area, so there are plenty of people in and out, but not many people staying just for the campground. 

The facilities are basic, picnic tables and fire rings at each site. There is also an area for livestock unloading and places for tying up your horses.

There isn't much around, but the road back to cove, while not paved, isn't bad, and there is a great mini mart right on main street where you can buy anything you forgot (including gas).

Large campground with creekside sites

Loved the campground. Little spendy @ 22 a night & 10 a night for extra vehicle, but the bathrooms were super clean and not fly infested for vault toilets. Lots of sites are creekside, ours was one. Tons of exploring opportunities. Sites vary in size from single small tent sites to large/ group size sites. Upper Rogue River Trail is right by the campground. Short walk to Union Creek store, cafe, and ice cream shop.

Beautiful lake and views!

Fish Lake Campground is up above Halfway, OR. It is a pine forested high elevation (6,990ft) Campground on NFD Rd. 66.

The campground on the lake is a pay site (6$ /night) with on site water and metal fire pits and vault toilets. However there is other sites that are dispersed nearby on NFD Rd. 66 and NFD Rd. 6625 along the road to DeadMans Trail. #1867. There is 2 sites at the end loop of the pay sites that are dispersed sites and lack tap for water and has a rock fire pit. Both have access to older vault toilets.

Beautiful in the morning!

Very clean, nice campground

The location of the campground is off to the left-hand side of highway 82 (if coming from Elgin) and down a long gravel road. The sites are spaced enough to where you aren't crowded but there still isn't much privacy. Apple trees are everywhere, bringing tons of butterflies and bees to the campground. The bathrooms looked well maintained. The river is nice to swim in or for rafts/kayaks but as for fishing, we didn't have much luck aside from mountain whitefish. Overall a good campground for overnight.

Great location

Just off the road has a small pool a playground and great view of the blue mountains
