Located above Cove, Oregon, the Moss Springs Campground lies on a ridgeline within view of the Eagle Cap Wilderness and is next to Moss Springs Trailhead. This popular campground was constructed to accommodate visitors with packstock, riding stock and campers bound for the wilderness. The site also has 3 accessible campsites and toilets. Trails from the campground drop steeply into the Minam River drainage or follow Grande Ronde Ridge.
Moss Springs is a quiet campground on the edge of the Eagle Cap about 9 miles up the a forest service road from Cove, OR (which is about 14 miles past La Grande).
Most people use this campground for parking to hike into the Minam Lodge or to backpack into the Little Minam, or to park their trailer to ride their horses into the area, so there are plenty of people in and out, but not many people staying just for the campground.
The facilities are basic, picnic tables and fire rings at each site. There is also an area for livestock unloading and places for tying up your horses.
There isn't much around, but the road back to cove, while not paved, isn't bad, and there is a great mini mart right on main street where you can buy anything you forgot (including gas).
