About Chewaucan Crossing Trailhead

This highly used campground is ideally located right on the Chewaucan River, 20 minutes south of Paisley, Oregon. Chewaucan Crossing Trailhead, within the campground, accesses Fremont National Recreation Trail #160 a multi-use trail, and a challenging trek in both directions as hikers must climb out of the river canyon. You can hike, mountain bike, or horseback ride north to Yamsay Mountain or south to Cox Pass. A pedestrian bridge crosses the river and links to the trail. There are many fishing opportunities for rainbow and brook trout. The site  is surrounded by a high desert, pine, and juniper setting. Amenities include a vault toilet, parking area, adequate trailer turnaround, horse corrals, and each of the five campsites has a picnic table and fire ring.  Alert : There is no potable water. Visitors need to pack plenty of water. Remember to “pack it in, pack it out.”
