Explore Oregon Recreation: Page Springs Campground

Page Springs Campground is located at the base of Steens Mountain in southeast Oregon, just 3 miles from the town of Frenchglen. Thirty-six roomy campsites under cottonwood and juniper trees, and near the Donner and Blitzen River, welcome visitors year-round.

 

The campground serves as the trailhead for two short hikes: the Blitzen River Trail meanders 4 miles up the river; and the Wilderness Nature Trail climbs gradually to the top of the bluff overlooking the valley floor and looping 1 mile.

 

Page Springs also offers a large, covered picnic area for no-fee day use, multiple vault restrooms and drinking water.

 

Hikers, fly-fishers, campers, bird watchers and families most enjoy Page Springs Campground. It provides a comfortable base for adventures on Steens Mountain or the nearby Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.
