For those seeking solitude and quiet, Corral Springs is the place. This quiet campground is located 15 minutes northwest of Chemult, Oregon. There are five campsites among lodgepole pines, each with a picnic table and fire ring. There are also two vault toilets and an information board. A narrow creek meanders through the middle of the campground, fed by a spring that gurgles out of a knoll. In the fall, Corral Springs is popular amongst hunters. In the summertime, this is an ideal campground for in relaxing in a primitive setting. June and July are heavy mosquito months so bring bug spray. There is no potable water. Visitors need to pack plenty of water
Small campground, it’s just a little loop with a few spots, about 2ish miles in on a dirt road. The drive was pretty easy on a 2wd van. There were pit toilets that were not being maintained and a sign that cautioned against using, but one of us did use and we saw others that were going in as well, it was just almost overflowing. The spot we had was nice and sheltered and quiet overall. The other spots were mostly full, but everyone was quiet for the most part. The absolutely worst part was the amount of flies at the site, maybe because of the bathrooms? We weren’t sure, but you basically had huge flies on you at all times. This was in July, if it weren’t for that we probably would have stayed another night.
This campground is easy to get to and well maintained. Corral Springs campground is pretty small with only a handful of camping spaces. The campground was nice, clean, and peaceful. I didn’t see any hiking trails or rivers but there is a little green spring. There are picnic tables and it wasn’t crowded when I visited, I only saw one other camper.
