“A Wonderful Winter Stay!”

Reviewed Jun 08, 2018

Overall Rating

We have visited this campground twice now, both times in February on crisp, cool, but clear weekends. There were more people camping than I expected, but still not very many. This park is on the newer side, not much vegetation has grown up yet so sites are not private. The way the park is nestled in the canyon along the river makes it... more

“Budding campground, but worth the visit”

Reviewed Jun 06, 2018

Overall Rating

Decided to visit Cottonwood Canyon over the Memorial holiday weekend to check it out and to test our camping gear. It's remote enough that you feel removed from the city lights but only a couple of hours outside of Portland. There is no cell service. We arrived just before sunset and though it was pretty busy - all the car camp spots w... more

“Beautiful campground, beautiful area, amazing scenery”

Reviewed Apr 28, 2018

Overall Rating

As others have said this is a newer campground, still under development. We were there over Washington spring break, end of March, 1st week of April, 2018 and the weather was really good. Windy but mostly sunny and dry. This campground was very clean and very quiet. It might be different in the summer with families and kids. No ro... more

“Quiet campground with lots of wildlife.”

Reviewed Dec 29, 2017

Overall Rating

December is not usually the time folks head out in their RV. The campground is a bit off the beaten path. I had the place to myself. I was greeted by a deer upon my arrival. In the morning, I saw about 20 bighorn sheep 50 yards from my trailer. A coyote was walking along the river as I was leaving. There is not a lot of pr... more

“We absolutely loved it!”

Reviewed May 08, 2017

Overall Rating

It is windy, there is no cell coverage, no showers, no dump station, no privacy (It is the high desert). Yet we loved it here! We came early May. Green and beautiful. If we came at another time, the rating could possibly be different. Hopefully not. So nice to unplug. If you really need internet and cell service, drive to Wasco or C... more

“Very Nice Dry Camping”

Reviewed May 08, 2017

Overall Rating

Location - The best attribute of this campground is the setting. The campground is located in a deep canyon surrounded by rimrock cliffs. The John Day River flows beside the campground. The campground was a sheep and cattle ranch in the early 1900's. A barn and ranch equipment have been preserved near the campground. There are good hik... more

What a nice, fairly new State Campground. The State is working hard on this park, and doing a great job. The Rangers and volunteers were all very friendly and knowledgeable. The vault toilets were all very clean and maintained daily. There is now potable water in the campground as well as sprinkler and soaker systems througho... more

“Lots of room in this undiscovered treasure!”

Reviewed May 31, 2015

Overall Rating

The Lone Tree Campground is in Cottonwood Canyon State Park, Oregon's newest and second largest state park. It has 21 spots, with plenty of room between each site. While temperatures can get pretty toasty from May through October, the John Day River runs along side the campground, providing a respite from the heat in mid-May when we vi... more
