Campground Camping

As you are traveling on Forest Service Road 43 and you go over a bridge over the Deschutes River, you might notice a sign that says Pringle Falls. That sign is for the falls themselves, but the turn into the campground is about a quarter mile east of there. The campground is on a hidden part of the Deschutes River mixed in with a subdivision south of Bend. Follow the signs to the campground and you willl end up in a small campground, perfect for small groups or families.
