A pleasantly small campground tucked among ponderosa pines along a forest creek.  This campground is popular with hunters.  Just a short drive away from the beautiful Middle Fork of the John Day River.  Less than a mile away is Arch Rock Trail, an ashflow tuff with a scenic arch and several small rockshelters eroded into the outcrop, allowing visitors a place to see fascinating geological features.  A bit further at 13 miles away is Magone Lake, a great place to swim, fish or hike.
