Effective July 12, 2021, all open fires, including charcoal fires, will be prohibited on all lands administered by the Deschutes National Forest. There are no exceptions for developed or hosted campgrounds. Further information is found on the USDA Forest Service website.
Like the other campgrounds on the Metolius, Allen Springs is located amongst towering Ponderosa Pines, on a turn of the Metolius River that broadens the river view. Most of the campsites are better suited to tents rather than RV's.
This campground offers many opportunities for hiking and biking with the many trails nearby. The ponderosa pine forest provides shade as well as the chance to go bird or nature watching.
Nestled in the forest with near the Metolius River. Allen Springs Campground is a great shady family spot with short hikes all around.
