“Generous site size and great location in the Steens Mountains ”

Overall Rating

We were one of only two parties camping here on June 13, 2018. Sites are level, nicely laid out with lots of elbow room. The surrounding trees are trimmed back well so that any size rig would fit and they provided different amounts of exposure to the sun or shade. Plenty of clean, well-located vault toilets. We had pretty decent cell service with our booster.

Each site has a fire ring and aluminum picnic table.

There's also an equestrian campground next door.

We particularly enjoyed riding our mountain bikes to the nearby Riddle Brothers Ranch, a well-preserved historic site operated by the BLM. Such a cool look into the past. If the gate is closed you can still visit it by walking in another mile or so. Highly recommend.

Other highlights of our trip through the Steens: spotted two groups of wild mustangs as we drove out the next morning and driving right by a large group of cowboys who were branding hundreds of calves right by the road.

We can't wait to be back when we have a few more days!
