Description

White. Water. Rafting. How awesome are those three words? Add campfire, s’mores, and stargazing and you’ve got yourself a perfect weekend at Driftwood Campground. Situated along the banks of the North Fork John Day River, you can launch a raft right from camp in the morning, catch some white water, and return for burgers and brews in the evening. If rafting is a little extreme for your tastes, you can just take a dip in the river and watch the rafters float away at their own peril. Or if you want to avoid the water altogether, the Oriental Trailhead is just eight miles away. Seriously, whatever your fancy, this place has it. Although the campground is at a low elevation, it can sometimes close due to snow. So check the USDA website for up-to-date information. Check website for closures. Tip: The water level becomes too low for rafting around mid-July, so don’t wait until it’s too late. On the upside, lower water means a weaker current and safer swimming.
