“Beautiful peaceful area.”

Reviewed May 26, 2017

Overall Rating

I concur with the previous review and add the following safety information (especially for pets and kids). This is a rustic RV Park in the beautiful Steens Mountains. We saw five snakes on highway 205 during the last 30-40 minutes of our drive to the RV Park. We also saw one this morning on the road in the RV Park and were told a lot of the snakes in this area are harmless but there are rattle snakes in the area to beware of too. There are ticks in the area as well. We met a woman walking her dog who said she removed 6 ticks from her dog the night before. She was staying at Page Springs Campground which is very close by (approximately 1/4 mile away and on the other side of the Blitzen River).

“A great RV park for visiting the Steens Malhuer area.”

Reviewed Jun 20, 2016

Overall Rating

We camped here specifically to visit the Steens and Malhuer area and this resort works fantastic for this purpose. The spots are large and can accommodate very large rigs however can be very difficult to level as they are older gravel spaces that could use some work.

Even though the spots are kind of close together, because they are staggered on a hill you do not feel like you are on top of your neighbors. The connections (sewer, water, and electric) are all at the back of the spots and you may find you need longer hoses to reach once you finally find a level spot (I was about 10' short on sewer hose).

This area is full of natural beauty and wildlife and especially birding opportunities. There are several BLM campgrounds in the area as well that looked very nice if not small. The mosquitoes were pretty bad at night but not a problem at all during the day.

It is about a 2-3 mile drive on a bumpy gravel road but if you take your time it is not too bad but can be dusty. This is one of those places you visit for the surrounding area and for us it worked perfect to suit that need. We would definitely come back again and really enjoyed the area and owners of this resort.
