Little Fawn Group Camp, 37 miles southwest of the town of Bend, is located on the southeastern shores of Elk Lake.
Elk Lake provides the opportunity for boating, windsurfing, water skiing, fishing and swimming. A nice beach and large day-use area provide plenty of shoreline for swimming. A boat ramp is located within the campground.
Little Fawn Group Camp offers single-family sites and a cluster of sinlge sites that are reservable in a single grouping. The campground accommodates tent and RV camping, but electrical hookups are not available. Sites are equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided.
From various points around Elk Lake you can catch glimpses of South Sister and Mt. Bachelor. Wetlands, diverse forests and rocky slopes near the campground provide habitat for shorebirds, porcupine, deer, bats and the occasional black bear.
Lava Lands Visitor Center in nearby Bend, Oregon, and the unique geological landscape of Newberry National Volcanic Monument, draw visitors to the region as well. Visitors enjoy traveling the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway which climbs through the Cascades on a 66-mile drive weaving past snow-capped peaks and alpine lakes.

This is a pristine campground. Great Bathrooms (although they were drop, there isn't running water). Spacious campsites. If you go in late June the inlet the campground is on is mostly dried up, but the boat launch was still usable. Would recommend.
Camped for a night at Little Fawn earlier this week and had the campground entirely to myself. There were several people using the day use area who left after dark. Campsite #3 was perfect to pull through and park my car to sleep in my rooftop tent. The site backed up to a large field that used to be deep-ish pond. A bit windy and lots of mosquitos, but quiet and felt somewhat secluded. Good cell service for Verizon users. Fire pits and picnic tables at every site as well as pit toilets and garbage dumpsters nearby. Great beach area in the day use spot, perfect for a day on the water and a fire as the sun goes down.
Although I did not stay directly in the campground, I was able to find a peaceful spot on the beach next to the campground. Amazing view of stars and an incredibly warm lake to play in. One of my favorite spots thus far.
