“Camp in an Amazing Canyon”

Reviewed Dec 08, 2015

Overall Rating

A fly fishing buddy turned me onto the BLM portion of the Crooked River. As we drove up river, it was private ranches and 'no trespassing' signs everywhere. But then we crossed into the BLM area and are glad we did.

There are a half dozen or more riverside campgrounds along the way. At $8.00 a night, they are simply an amazing value. There's a variety of options, from open space to tighter spots, most with fire rings and picnic tables. The campgrounds have vault style toilets and central faucets in season, as well as kitchen water dump stations.

Due to time of year, we did not see another soul for our stay, other than fellow fly fishermen. The Crooked River is a must see for its ancient walls. It's a geologists dream.

Nights can get a bit chilly, and you're far from Prineville, so make sure you are we'll stocked ahead of time. And there is zero cell phone coverage in the canyon.
