On a rimrock plateau where dusk bleeds into the Crooked River as water slices canyon, sits the setting for your camping adventure at Smith Rock. The Bivouac campground is a first-come, first-served walk-in campground with parking available in a lot near the cooking and picnic area and restrooms, showers and running water provided at the site. Campfires, RV and car camping are prohibited, but the restful power of the desert that will encircle your tent protected body is well worth the simplicity of Bivouac.

$5/night (per person), open walk-in camping area so you just find a spot. Was perfect for Hammocking. Bathrooms are nice, showers are $2.

Loved camping here! Arrived late on a Friday night and there were still some spots available. You must do all your cooking in a separate area a short walk away from the campsites but it's easy to figure out the rules. There's even a place next to the bathrooms to charge electronics (luxurious)! Good campin vibes here for sure!

Awesome laid back vibe. Plenty of spots and they work great for both tenting and hammocking.

With sheer cliffs of tuff and basalt, Smith Rock has become an icon for climbers of all skill levels. Situated on the rim of the Crooked River, the bivouac at Smith Rock is a climbers paradise with some of Central Oregon's best sunrise and sunset views. Space is available on a first come- first serve basis and reservations are not accepted. Fees are $5 per person which will include your parking pass for the next day and use of the showers. My personal favorite part about this campground is the common area to cook and partake in meals throughout the day allowing the opportunity to reminisce with hikers and climbers alike.

It's a walk-in site - so pack light and bring a small backpacking tent to get a site right up on canyon rim!
