Thirty-six campsites are available under the cottonwood and juniper trees near the Donner und Blitzen Wild and Scenic River. A trailhead for the Blitzen River Trail is located within the campground.

An Oasis in the desert
This campground is on the lower slope of the mighty Steens Mountain, and is just a few miles from Frenchglen. The campground is beautiful and opportunities for wildlife viewing are everywhere. Be sure to drive the Steens Mountain loop while you are here - it is magnificent!
This is a pretty nice campground for not being a State Park. Green lawns and shaded campsites make for easy camping. This is also a great "jumping off" point for fly fishing on the Donner and Blitzen River. I only gave it 4 stars because of the bad bugs in the Spring and that the river can run pretty high through June on high snow years.
