Page Springs Campground is located at the base of Steens Mountain, just three miles from the town of Frenchglen. Thirty-six roomy campsites under cottonwood and juniper trees and near the Donner und Blitzen River welcome visitors year-round. The campground serves as the trailhead for two short hikes: the Blitzen River Trail meanders four miles up the river, while the Wilderness Nature Trail climbs gradually to the top of the bluff overlooking the valley floor and looping one total mile. Page Springs also offers a large, covered picnic area for no-fee day use, multiple vault restrooms, and drinking water.
Know Before You Go:
- Fishing the river: catch and release only (rainbow trout); two, 8-inch minimum length per day limit (Redband trout); artificial flies and lures only.
- Ticks, mosquitoes, and rattlesnakes are known to be in the area – stay alert.
