Overall Rating

We tent camped one weekend while visiting the painted hills. Loved it! Only 4 other campers around last weekend in June. Very secluded. We waded in the river, hiked around the painted hills and enjoyed very starry nights. There is NOTHING to do in the area though - closest town seems to be Prineville. Primitive camping. No cell service.

“Beautiful site - entrance road a little rough but doable - go slowly!”

Overall Rating

Lower Burnt Ranch (BLM) is one mile further along the road from “Burnt Ranch (BLM)”. The road in is down hill and dirt. The camping area is relatively flat and close to the John Day river (see pictures). Any size RV could fit in this dispersed camping area – if you can brave the road in. A few hundred feet beyond the camping area is the boat launch. The river was quite high from spring run off and launching even a small boat would be a challenge. Boat launching requires a permit (fee). There is a vault toilet about ½ way between the camping area and the boat launch. Free for up to 14 day stay. No cell reception.
