Campbell Lake Campground
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.
The Campbell Lake Campground offers 21 tent / trailer sites in a high mountain lake setting. Facilities include picnic tables and fire grills at each site, drinking water – hand pump, outhouses, and a separate boat launch and picnic area. Opportunities for recreation include fishing for stocked rainbow trout, swimming, boating (Electric motors only, 5 mph speed limit), and bird watching.
The campground also features the Lakes Trail System. This trail system offers a variety of connecting loops between Campbell Lake and Dead Horse Lake. It also connects with Dead Horse Rim Trail and Dead Cow Trail. The trail system is located both below Campbell Rim and along the top of the rim. An intertie trail connects the upper and lower trails in the approximate middle of their reaches to provide loop hikes of shorter duration. Scenic vistas of the lakes and the surrounding country are offered along both the upper and lower trails. Evidence of the past glacial nature of this area is found along the trail routes.
The campground is usually full on holidays and weekends and sites are on a first-come first-served basis. Please bring your own firewood, or gather nearby for camp use.
