This area is Open

Located 40 minutes south of Silver Lake, Oregon, East Bay is a desirable campground located at the base of Hager Mountain on the scenic Thompson Reservoir. Enjoy gorgeous views of the mountain and shady campsites thanks to the ponderosa pines and aspens.  

Eighteen spacious campsites accommodate tent and RV camping. Amenities include picnic tables, fire rings, potable water, and three vault toilets. East Bay is a popular campground with hunters every fall.

East Bay campground has convenient access to the hiker trail that leads to the summit of Hager Mountain, about 4 miles one way.

Besides hiking, East Bay offers excellent fishing and boating opportunities on Thompson Reservoir. There is no dock at the present time but boaters can easily back their boat down the ramp into the water. Thompson Reservoir is stocked with rainbow trout on an annual basis.
