Description

Word has it the North Fork John Day River is pretty wild and scenic, and this campground lies right along its banks. Not only can you hunt, fish, horseback ride and take stunning pictures of the surrounding wilderness, but in the Fall you can see the native Steelhead Salmon gettin’ it on--er, spawning. The campground is also located at the junction of the Blue Mountain and Elkhorn scenic byways, so you have instant access to your choice of beautiful drives. There are 20 sites, most of which can accommodate a large RV, and it’s fairly popular during the peak season with moderate to heavy use. You won’t find any potable water here though, so BYOW. Other than that, have fun! Check website for closures. Tip: Site 2 is the only pull-through site, so if you’re coming in a land-yacht you might want to snag that one.
