The resort is located on 16 acres and looks out across the South end of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, P Ranch and the Donner and Blitzen River. The local area has a abundance of wildlife, along with the variety of birds that call this area home and those that migrate though the area.There are nine different rental units available on a nightly or weekly basis. All the units have a kitchen area, bathroom with a shower and heating and cooling units so that they can be used year round. In addition to the cabins, the Resort has over 38 full hook-up RV sites that are all, pull thru sites. They also have 14 tent sites with grass and shade that include power and water, if needed. Not only are they a “Good Sam” park, but the last two years they qualified with a perfect score on the newly renovated bathrooms and showers.

Good Place to make camp.
This was our second year staying here. Nicely run roomy campground accommodates campers, tents and a few cabins. Clean bathrooms and showers. Handy little store. Love the book exchange and the laundry facilities. Loads of information brochures and maps about the entire area are super useful. Owners Mark & Debbie are cool people.
Great location, but the mosquitoes are fierce
We booked a two night camping trip here. Loved the location and views. Staff was friendly. Bathroom facilities were clean. The issue was the mosquitoes...they were ridiculous!! So bad, that despite good insect repellent, we spent the entire afternoon and evening in our tent (along with most everyone else...by 9, the resort was silent because everyone escaped in campers so that they weren't eaten alive). They were even out biting in the morning (not quite as bad, but...). We ended up leaving after one night because of the mosquitoes.
A canopy of stars, a huge swath of the Milky Way
We camped with our daughter and 4 grandsons for 2 beautiful nights during the Perseids Meteor showers. The night sky truly was glorious to behold. The resort store/bath house was immaculately clean and well maintained as were the camping grounds in general. The owners were friendly and very helpful. We did some hiking up into the hills surrounding the site and there are plenty of opportunities for those who desire more rigorous climbs than the one we chose. I highly recommend this place for RV or tent camping.
This was our first time staying at this establishment. We have been coming to the area for years but used other lodging options. I have to stay this will be a return spot for us. We rented one of the modular homes with 2 bedrooms, very comfortable beds, and 2 baths called the Homestead. Very clean, full size kitchen which included a dish washer , laundry area, living room and a large porch with chairs for morning coffee or afternoon cocktails. It also has AC!
Camping at Steens Mountain Wilderness Resort
Very friendly, helpful owners. Camping sites have adequate room . They have free WiFi and the office has soda and ice cream. The mosquitoes at night are atrocious and persistent however. It’s the location, lots of wet areas. Good place for discovering the Steens.
