About Olive Lake Campground

Nestled on the edge of a lake, high in the Blue Mountains of Eastern Oregon, this popular campground is only 8 miles west of the historic Fremont Powerhouse and 12 miles west of the old mining town of Granite.  The campground features 28 campsites and 7 accessible toilet facilities.  Other features include a 2-mile hiking trail around the lake with nearby access to wilderness and scenic area trails, a boat ramp and 2 docks. There is no potable water or garbage service, so please pack your garbage home.  

Besides beautiful scenery, the lake offers many opportunities for wildlife viewing--particularly a nesting pair of osprey that return annually.  Activities in this area include fishing, boating, swimming, hiking, hunting, and photography.  Within 20 miles are several historic sites.

LOVE

My family loves this place, so beautiful. My grandma requested to have her ashes specifically spread here

One of my favorite camping spots

Well shaded and beautiful. Theres a hike around the lake and also another hike you can do thats in the campgrounds. The hikes are gorgeous. My dog really enjoyed it here. It was shaded and there was a lot of beautiful flowers. Being here just puts me in a great mood. The spots are pretty private with picnic tables and a fire ring. Most of spots were also near the lake. Be sure to bring bug spray or citronella candles to keep away the mosquitos. 馃榿

Refreshing

Dog friendly. Water is refreshing. Perfect weather. Super relaxing. Worth the long drive to get there .

Love, love, love this place

Have camped here twice, once when I was a kid, and once this summer, and it's wonderful. Most spots feel secluded and private, and if you get there on an off-day, you can get a good one with water access.
