Divide Well Campground

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

Divide Well Campground is a remote site with a rustic look.  It is situated in an meadow with scattered ponderosa pine and denser fir along the campground edges. Divide Well is a popular spot for elk hunters, but little used through the rest of the season.   It features 11 campsties and two accessible vault toilets.  There is no potable water or garbage service, so please pack out all garbage and dispose of it at home. 

Nearby is the Potamus Point Interpretive Site, with breathtaking views, interesting geology, and a herd of re-introduced bighorn sheep.  There are no developed trails on this side of the North Fork John Day Ranger District.
