Quinn Meadows Campsite

Quinn Meadow is one of the most popular horse campgrounds on the Deschutes Forest. The sites are large and there is a vast area to ride on the southwest side of Mt. Bachelor and surrounding areas. This site is located between Devils Lake and Elk Lake and provides access to the Three Sisters Wilderness via the Quinn Creek (Meadow) Trail or Katsuk Pond Trail (to Devils Lake/South Sister Trailhead).

Horse campgrounds have been designed to accommodate people who need to corral their horses. We have a limited number of these kinds of campgrounds and ask, out of courtesy and safety for you and the horses, to please consider camping elsewhere if you do not have a horse. We have many campgrounds nearby.
