Why Camp Here
It won’t be hard for you to figure out how this campground got its name. While almost all the campgrounds in the Deschutes National Forest have the high desert look about them (tall Ponderosa Pines, brown sandy soil, sparse vegetation and very little grass) this one is different. As soon as you cross the bridge that takes you over the Deschutes River, you will see the difference. The whole area is grassy with mostly deciduous trees providing shade. The sites are isolated from one another and this is a little used campground, so you shouldn’t be bothered by your neighbors. It is right on the river, but close to Crane Prairie Reservoir.
Good to Know
The tight road and heavy vegetation makes it difficult for large RV use. Anything over 30 feet is discouraged.
10 MPH speed limit is enforced for boating on Crane Prairie.
This is an non-hosted campground which means that it is watched over by an attendant from another campground who will visit from two to four times per day.
