For outdoor enthusiasts looking for a campground in a peaceful forest setting with great fishing and a variety of hiking opportunities, Digit Point Campground is the place. This scenic campground is located on the south shore of Miller Lake 40 minutes east of Chemult, Oregon.
The location of the campground places many campsites on the lake shore with scenic views of the lake and Mt. Thielsen. A dense growth of mixed conifers including hemlock, white pine, white fir and sugar pine, provide ample shade. Osprey, eagles, loons and grebes are local residents. June and July are heavy mosquito months, so bring bug spray.
The best part about camping at Digit Point is that it offers a full array of activities including biking boating, fishing, hiking and swimming. Miller Lake's brown, rainbow and brook trout and Kokanee salmon pose a challenge for anglers of any age. A person can also fish 24 hours a day here.
The Miller Lake Trail loop provides hikers an opportunity to explore part of Mt. Thielsen Wilderness and be back at camp for dinner. This five-mile loop trail also allows hikers to access the Pacific Crest National Scenic and Maidu trails.
There is a fee for use of the campground and sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Amenities include picnic tables, potable water, campfire rings, three flush toilets, one vault toilet and an RV dump station.
