Between May and October, pitch your tent in the valley of the Blue Mountains and enjoy the historic echoes of a once-was mill town and your proximity to the the middle fork John Day River, Clear Creek, Bridge Creek and the sweet appeal of small town Prairie City. Bates offers primitive first-come first-served sites for tents or self-contained RVs, vault toilets, potable water and a hiker/biker camp with 6 sites and an electric plug-in. Most sites at Bates Campground are largely exposed with little tree cover, with exception of the hiker-biker camp which resides in a grassy knoll.
