Campground Camping

The campground is well-used due to its close proximity to the nearby town of Sisters, but rarely ever full except during certain festival times in Sisters like the rodeo, the quilt show, and some holidays. During these times it is best to arrive a little early if possible. While Cold Springs is a favorite with some campers, it is very popular as a substitute campsite when the campgrounds on the Metolius are full. This is a great family campground where the kids can ride their bikes and families can go on short hikes. Water is available by hand pump and there are three vault style toilets.
