Family/Sun/Fun

About This Campground

Nestled in Deschutes National Forest, Spring Campground offers visitors some of the most stunning scenery in central Oregon and easy access to an abundance of recreational activities in the Cascade region.

A favorite among visitors, the sites in this campground are widely-spaced and scattered among a mixed conifer forest, giving it an open and sunny character. The campground looks out to the stunning water of Crescent Lake, and several tent-only sites are on the lake front.

Recreation

In addition to being a prime location for boating, fishing, swimming, hiking and biking in summer and early fall, Spring Campground offers excellent skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling in the winter months.

Crescent Lake Snowpark offers skiers and snowmobilers a base camp for winter excursions. Summit Lake Trail, 9 miles one- way, follows the road leading from Crescent Lake to Summit Lake, offering excellent views across Crescent Lake and highlighting Diamond Peak.

Anglers enjoy fishing from boats or the shoreline. Fish species found in the lake include kokanee salmon, mackinaw, rainbow trout, brown trout and mountain whitefish. Summer months offer the best fishing opportunities.

Facilities

Sites at Spring Campground are plentiful, and some can be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. The campground is rarely full, offering a bit more solitude than neighboring campgrounds.

Larger groups may reserve a block of 12 campsites. These sites are somewhat isolated from the others and can fit up to about 70 campers and 25 vehicles.

Sites are equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Vault toilets and drinking water are available.

A nearby resort on Crescent Lake offers lodging and a general store.

Natural Features

Cresent Lake, nestled in a naturally glaciated basin behind a moraine dam, lies east of the towering Cascade Mountain Range. Its brilliant blue-green water, sandy beaches and water temperature are exceptional for a high-elevation lake.

Wildlife found in the area include deer, porcupine, native fish and migratory birds.
