Fall River Campground

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. 

  • Fall River Campground is located along Fall River within the Deschutes National Forest west of La Pine.

    Campers can enjoy the nearby Fall River Trail which offers frequent views of crystal clear Fall River. This trail can be accessed from one of three Fall River Trailheads. Visitors can also enjoy fishing on Fall River although it is limited to fly fishing only.

    Fall River's headwaters bubble from the ground approximately 1/4 mile from the campground. The river meanders through the forest before joining the Deschutes River. Legal-sized brook and rainbow trout are stocked several times a year.
