When you arrive at this campsite, it is hard to believe that it is only a 15-min drive from La Pine (the nearest city). It is perfectly isolated with great scenery and noise of the nearby river.  As you are traveling west on County Road 43, you will cross a bridge and see a sign that says, Pringle Falls. This sign is for the falls themselves, not for the campground! Continue driving, and you will see a sign for Pringle Falls Campground on the north (right) side of the road. Follow the signs to the campground, and you will have arrived at the small campground with one vault toilet. No potable water, if you choose to collect water from the river remember to treat it! Located just outside of a reserved section of woodland that has been set aside for research and education, the campsite is situated on the grassy east river bank of the upper Deschutes River. We arrived on a Saturday in June and had the luxury of being the only ones there and getting to choose between any one of the seven sites.  Though there are no "waterfront" campsites, site # 6 is pretty close to being waterfront, and just a couple of steps gives you a beautiful view of the river below. The camp doesn't offer any bear-proof food lockers so remember to be safe and store food in proper containers. In the morning take a lovely stroll along the river's edge and if you get a chance take a nice skinny dip in the water!
