Lone Pine and Big Bend. # 11 on the map. We stayed at Lone Pine. Big Bend is a few miles down the road. Also 5 designated spaces. John Day Fossil Bed map and info show 42’ max length but any size will fit. We saw two RVs in this camp, the remaining spaces were empty.

The campground is situated belo... more
