National Forest

Ochoco National Forest and Crooked River National Grassland

Located on the northern edge of Mill Creek Wilderness, this campground is located within walking distance from the Wildcat North Trailhead. There are many standing dead trees here so be careful where you wander and where you set your camp. Whistler Springs rockhounding site is located within the campground shortly downhill from the restroom that has a tendency to draw enthusiasts. For visitors who are interested in either hiking in preserved wilderness areas, or scavenging for some beautiful stones this is a great place to spend some time. Visit our Rocks & Minerals page for more information on rockhounding. View a vicinity map of Mill Creek Wilderness and trails NOTE : The road getting to the campground, as well as the road within the campground, are both very rough. Recreational vehicles and trailers are not recommended.
