Indian Ford Campsite

This campground is located on Indian Ford Creek. There are bike trails and hiking trails leading out of the campground. These sites are normally used by those who are just passing through and you can almost always find a vacant site except maybe on the most crowded of Memorial Day weekends.  Indian Ford is conveniently located close to Black Butte Ranch and the town of  Sisters.

The bridge in this campground has been closed for safety reasons and the back loop of this campground has been closed due to an inability to access the sites.

Campground Camping

Indian Ford is conveniently located close to Black Butte Ranch and the town of  Sisters. It, along with Coldsprings Campground (also near Sisters), is a popular campground for those who are visiting one of the many events that go on during the summer in Sisters. Or it is a great place to stay in your RV when visiting friends in Black Butte Ranch. The area's largest drawback is that it is located right next to the highway, but some of the same people come here year after year, mostly because the sites are large, and it is an easy drive to nearby fun spots.
