Double Springs Campground is an “old fashion” campground, originally built in the 1930’s, and has sites nestled in a beautiful draw filled with cool grass, ponderosa pine and Gambel oak. The heart of this camp is Double Spring, which runs to the surface just above camp. Wildlife and bird watching are popular activities in this area as they visit the spring. Some of the birds you may see are hawks, northern harriers, an occasional bald eagle and a variety of song birds. The area also boasts a healthy population of elk and mule deer.

Relax and take in the nostalgia of this historic campground or hike the Lake View Trail (2 miles one way), which originates at here. This trail leads to overlooks providing view of nearby Mormon Lake and the surrounding forests and volcanoes. Campground roads and parking spurs are gravel.

Trails lead from the campground to scenic overlooks of nearby Mormon Lake and the surrounding area of prairies, forests and volcanoes. Wildlife watching is also a popular activity in this area. It's a very good place to see hawks, including northern harriers and ospreys. The area boasts a healthy population of elk and mule deer, too. The scenic village of Mormon Lake is conveniently close, offering horseback rides, mountain bike rentals. You'll also find a country store, service station, and a picturesque cowboy steak house there.
