Nice campground near lakes/creeks

Stayed at this campground in late July and couldn’t have asked for better weather. We stayed two different sites- one closer to hwy, then one right on the creek. Both were good size. Creek site was far superior due to the extremely large size site and sound of the babbling brook which drowned out…

Beach, Lake, Lincoln City

Devils Lake campground is an easy drive from Oregon wine country (Newberg/McMinnville). It tends to fill up quickly, so best to book weeks/months in advance. The campground has mooring slips at a small dock on the lake, and also a kayak launch. The lake is lovely for early morning kayaking,…

We found a gem in the forest

Hard to find the entrance while going 55 MPH down the highway. We stopped and camped here on our way from Christmas Valley to home. What we found was a small but secluded camping area run by the BLM with 24 camp sites in total. We stayed at the best site possible, #11 and even thought all the…

Beautiful views!

We camped at Lava Lake for 4 nights. The campsite is small, which was nice. I think there are about 40 sites total. The lake was so beautiful, with nice views of sisters and bachelor. The Lava Lake store rocked too. Open 7 - 7 and they have everything and anything you could need. They also…

Quiet

Our 26 foot class c had no issues and the dirt road going from the hardball to the sites would be easy for even bigger rvs. There are plenty of turnarounds. The dirt road keeps going for about a mile or two, with sites all along it, eventually splits into two east west running roads, both keep…

McKenzie River

We stayed at Horse Creek Lodge and it was right in the McKenzie River. They have cabins, tent sites, showers and toilets. A lovely, serene and very friendly staff. River rafting was a BLAST and they offer a discount if you tell them you’re staying at the lodge. Highly recommend

Launchpad rather than destination

Fine facilities, well cared for. A bit dusty in late July, to be expected. Most people there have cars and leave CG during the day to go boating, biking, etc. That gives it a more transitory feel than campgrounds where people launch there adventures right there and spend more time at their sites.…

Mostly good

Pros: The campground is nice, many vault toilets, fresh water spigot and sink drain sites, camp hosts are friendly, 1 mile drive to South twin lake, fair camping rates.

Cons: campsites are very close and only bordered by downed trees, extra car fee seems a little steep at $8/night, wickiup is…

Maybe keep looking if you’re tent camping

The area is nice with the other lakes and trees. There were loads of chipmunks, and they were super cute, but our dog had a hard time relaxing with so many around. The reservoir was low for sure, but the campground also wasn’t full. There is a good amount of space between most sites. The nearby…
