Lone Pine and Big Bend. # 11 on the map.
We stayed at Lone Pine. 5 designated spaces. John Day Fossil Bed map and info show 42’ max length but any size will fit. See https://www.nps.gov/joda/planyourvisit/upload/June-2016-Regional-Map.pdf. $2.50 with Senior Pass.

There is gas in Spray (regular and diesel), Kimberly (91 octane only), and Fossil (regular and diesel). No gas in Mitchell. Fuel is cheaper in John Day by about $.20/gal. Plan fuel your stops!

Nada cell.

Lone Pine is only two miles from the tiny town of Kimberly. Since there are few trees to provide shade, on a hot summer day I'd skip this one unless the single site with a tree is available. Big Bend is only a mile away and has a tree at each site. It might be fun to raft or swim or wade between the two campgrounds since they're so close together.

This road side campground has a single vault toilet, picnic tables and fire rings.

It's a beautiful location alongside the slow-moving John Day River, and provides great access to the John Day Fossil Beds. Consider taking a rafting trip (try Service Creek Outfitters) or exploring the charming western towns of Spray, Fossil, Mitchell, Monument and Kimberly, all within an hours drive.

There's absolutely no cell phone service in this area of eastern Oregon.
