About

National Forest

Fremont-Winema National Forest

Located 20 minutes south of Paisley, Oregon, Marster Spring is a rustic and peaceful campground along the banks of the Chewaucan River. The water level stays consistent on this river, providing good habitat for fish. Anglers can cast their line for catch-and-release bull trout. A creek flows amid sagebrush and through a mixed stand of alder, juniper and ponderosa pines. The Chewaucan Crossing trailhead is just one and a half miles up the road. You can either drive or walk along the river. Ten widely spaced campsites offer privacy. All sites have picnic tables and fire grates, and there are two vault toilets. A hand pump gives access to fresh, potable water. There are no garbage receptacles, so remember to “pack it in, pack it out.”

Quiet & Away from it All

For a small campground, which could only accommodate small RV’s and tenters, this campground has everything you might need. Along the banks of Sage Hen Creek, this intimate campground offers well-spaced out sites, with a fire ring and picnic table each. The two vault toilets were very clean and well stocked. The campground has trash, a returnables bin and drinking water. 

With the large ponderosa pines overhead we had to be strategic about our parking situation for our camper’s solar array. In many of these situations we set out our portable panel so that we can keep our camper in the shade and still collect solar energy to keep our small battery charged. 

There are plenty of hiking trails and opportunities for cycling and fishing throughout the National Forest area. There was a recent forest fire on the other side of the creek so the views are stunning in their own haunting way. Just a few miles back down the road, the town of Paisley has a few services, a small cafe, gas station/ convenience store, post office and of course a drive-thru barista. The closest larger town is Lakeview with a few more services, but don’t try to do your laundry there!

Dispersed camp nearby

The Marster Spring campground is about 8 miles up a gravel road outside of Paisley, OR. There are a number of dispersed camping sites along that road, some of which have rock fire pits. I camped for a night in a secluded spot right on the Chewaucan river. The campground itself has toilets and fire rings. Quiet and peaceful night listening to the water.
