Close to town and hiking

A great weekend getaway especially if your goal is day hiking. Room for Rv but mostly tent sites. Sits by a river and close to the town of Sisters, OR. Bring drinking water and firewood and good company! A great place to stargaze, especially if you're a photographer with a camera that can capture the night sky.

Gorgeous Subalpine Camping

The rive up the NF road is well worth it. This campground sits at the Base of Mt. Jefferson and butts up against Jack Lake. This area is a wonderful spot for the entire trip or to use as a basecamp if you plan on backpacking from there. The wildflowers are abundant in Late/Early July but watch for mosquitos! The sunsets/sunrises are fantastic. There is no firewood or water up here for bring your own! This is also a limited permit area so make sure to plan ahead.

Easy Going Campground

A wonderful and peaceful place to camp. It can get pretty busy but all around a great place, especially if you fish. Sits right on the Metolius River. Fly Fishing only though! Plenty of places near by for day hiking/exploring. Town of sisters only about 30 mins away if you need to stop into town. Lots of deer in the area!!

Peaceful and Quiet

The only downside that this place books up/out fast. Makes sense this campground sits right against the gem colored water of Clear Lake. Went for a spontaneous 1 night trip and was able to snag #19. The camp host is super chill and kind. There is firewood available and hiking in the same area. Can't go wrong camping here, some sites have a wonderful for of sisters too!

A big paved parking lot with individual parking spaces as campsited

Meh. Pulled in on a whim and stayed as it was getting late. Pit toilets were clean, and the paving is nice. Was barely enough room to pitch our small back packing tent off the pavement but we managed. Have no complaints, but no special praise either.

A tad dusty, but good.

Nothing fancy. Sites are rather dusty, but that’s just how the terrain is. Kind and helpful manager on site. Would stay again.

Remote tent sites right on the water!

Nice tent sites removed from the lodge and RV sites. Lovely walking trails and accessibility to soaking pools with hot spring water. Staff as very friendly, but the one bathroom was very dirty. They do sell firewood and ice at the checkin - which was nice. 

Overall - a lovely getaway.

Peaceful getaway

This is a great location to get away from the modern world and enjoy the outdoors. Lots of great hiking trails and views are amazing. Definitely bring your bug spray and don’t try to drive those gravel roads in a small car (I drove up with a scion TC and a 12 minute drive took an hour having to avoid pot holes and everything) I loved the location and the accommodations are great. They have a little shop nearby but it’s cash only if you really need something so pack what you need. And bring a lantern

So beautiful - Hike is a must do

This is a walk-in only campground with Fantastic VIEWS.  Campsites are very primitive. I just can't say how much I loved it here.  Even if you can't stay at the campground, you have to do the blue pool hike.  It is fairly easy and beautiful.

Beautiful - Very rustic

TENT CAMPING ONLY - there are about 17 sites.  We did an overnight stop here on our way to Bend.  It was full of beauty! Swim or paddle in the quiet waters of the non-motorized lake, go for a great hike with views of multiple Cascade peaks, or just kick back and relax in the campground. Pacific Crest Trail one only mile from the campground.  The sights are a little close together, not a problem unless they are full (which is often).
