Ochoco Divide Campground

LOCATION: Summit of Ochoco Pass on U.S. Hwy. 26.

ACCESS: from Prineville, 30 miles east on US Highway 26, at the summit of Ochoco Pass.

DESCRIPTION: This campground is located in an old growth ponderosa pine stand just off scenic U.S. Highway 26. An unused forest road on the far side of the campground provides an excellent, easy stretch walk after a long day of driving. Most visitors arrive late in the evening and continue on their trip the following morning, so the area is very quiet during the day. Marks Creek is nearby, and the Bandit Springs Highway Rest Stop, (one mile west) is the jumping off point for a network of trails. Although designed and marked with blue diamonds for winter X-Country ski touring, these trails invite summer exploration by hikers and bikers as well.

ELEVATION: 4700 feet

FACILITIES: tables, fire pits, vault toilets, level parking spur or tent site, separate 'walk-in' site for hikers and bicycle riders.

SITES: 28 family sites


OPERATED BY: Concessionaire/TTMSI

CAMPGROUND FEE: per night per site

* $13 for first vehicle and $6.50 for each additional vehicle
* $13 for bike sites

Nice spot between desert and forest

Ochoco summit is a clean and quiet campground right at the transition point from Ponderosa Pine forest and Eastern Oregon Desert. A worthwhile place to camp if you are traveling through oregon or visiting the nearby Painted Hills.
