Description

This is one of the most popular campgrounds in all the Deschutes Forest. Be sure to arrive early, because this campground tends to fill by Thursday afternoon for most weekends. The two lakes in the Newberry Monument area are two of the most popular places to camp in Oregon. The lakes may be a bit cold for swimming, but are great for fishing and the views across the lakes are spectacular as they are located in the center of a sleeping volcano, and you are camping on the lake edge with towering sides of the cone around you. Volcanic rock is within site all through the Monument area with some great hikes available through the lava and to nearby waterfalls. The 50 Little Crater sites specifically are on a fairly thin ledge right on the lake and all the campground sites are within a minute walk to the water. The sites are ample sized and most are good for both tents or RV and trailers. There is an RV dump station near the entry of Paulina Lake Campground. next to Paulina Lake, 953.
