Description

You would think that escaping the city to any old campground would provide a quiet, peaceful getaway. But between all the party campers and families with hyperactive kids running around, that’s not always the case. But if peace and solitude is what you seek, look no further than Gold Dredge Campground. With six sites located along the North Fork John Day River, you can spend your day watching wildlife and fall asleep to the soothing sounds of rushing water. The campground often closes due to snow in the winter, but is one of the earliest to open in Spring thanks to its low elevation. So if you’re eager to hit the mountains after a long winter, check the USDA website for closure information first. Check website for closures. Tip: Site 6 can accommodate up to 50 people and five RVs, so you could roll in with all your friends and family and host a feast of epic proportions. Or you could just have one giant site all to yourself. You pick.
