Great spot!

This is a small but great camp site. Bathrooms present on site. Each spot has a great picnic table and grill. It is a rocky area so have a pad if tent camping.

Unique Hotspring Adventure

As I saw mentioned earlier, this is not for everyone.  The journey to get to Alvord was long.  We traveled Hwy 20 from Bend to Burns, 205 to Fields, Fields-Denio Rd to Alvord.  It was a long, very remote drive.  The road from Fields is gravel, so be aware.  Alvord is right off the playa.  You do…

A good alternative

I stayed at Mann Lake as an alternative to camping on the Alvord Desert. We initially were sleeping on the desert until it started raining hard in the middle of the night and we evacuated to avoid getting stuck.

Luckily, even in the middle of the night, there were plenty of spots and everything…

Quiet and remote, a jump off to the unreal

Stayed a little bit up from the campsite in the wilderness. Beautiful approach to this area, the canyons are impressive. Remote and quiet, if that’s what you’re looking for. This will never get much traffic. And then, right next door you wake up the next morning to find an incredible natural…

NOT a campsite

This area is gorgeous! But it isn’t a campsite. The land has returned to a more untouched state, so any trace of a campsite is now nonexistent. Move on the South Steens Campground.

Great little oasis!

I didn’t camp at the hot springs this time around, but last June (?) I did come and I enjoyed my visit. I wanted to come back to see this area again, and although I didn’t stay at the hot springs, I did stop at the front office to ask a few questions. The lady who was working was very pleasant-she…

Secluded and peaceful

Very quiet campground. Enjoyed the tranquility and small creek running near our site. Sites are fairly spaced out but most offer little visual separation from your neighbor. Very clean facilities and everything was nicely maintained.

Fabulous gem

We were on a spring break road trip and camped here to break up the day. I loved this spot! There’s not much I can add to the other reviews other than emphasizing how much we enjoyed this campground. We had 4 families with kids and all managed to find great sites adjacent to one another. We could…

Nice Hot Springs in the desert but rudicoloualy overpriced hi

We made the mistake of choosing the Alvord Hot Springs resort for camping by the Alvord Desert. The place is basically a giant gravel parking lot with a few picnic benches and fire pits strewn on the sides. There is a single very dirty bathroom right next to the general store and no other services…

Childish Joy

Not everyone may feel like I do, but I loved it. The hot springs are not fancy by any means, but 3 hours from the nearest from town (of 1500 people) fancy is not what one should expect. The pools are simple concrete with a ramshackle tin structure blocking the wind, and the cabins, if you rent one,…

Incredibly beautiful spot, dispersed camping at its finest

Visiting the Alvord Desert Campground is a must in Eastern Oregon.  If you book a campsite, you have private access to drive out on the desert playa, and that also includes access to the hot springs.  Well worth it.  The stars out there are incredible.  Be sure to check the weather before heading…

Nice springs

The pond at night is just awesome. Stars are out. Little light pollution The temperature is perfect. Staff is friendly and making reservations was easy. The site however is more like a parking lot. But take a swim in the springs and you will be back.

The gal running the place was a gem! Couple friendly kitties and a pooch run around to greet you. Hot springs are nice and hot. Beautiful place. Late check-ins are cool and the are on an honor system.
