Ogden Group Campground
Ogden Group campground is located in the high desert region of central Oregon, on the scenic Paulina Creek. The campground is surrounded by scenery that sets the stage for fantastic recreational opportunities in Deschutes National Forest.
This group campground is ideal for large scout groups, school outings, and family reunions, and provides plenty of opportunities for excursions to scenic rivers, lakes, and lava flows, typical to the area.
Boating, swimming and fishing are popular activities enjoyed by visitors during spring, summer and fall months, while skiing and snowmobiling are popular during the winter. Anglers have the opportunity to fish in the surrounding clear, cold lakes and streams for abundant salmon and trout. Hikers and backpackers have access to a variety of trails in the area, including several in Newberry National Volcanic Monument. The Crater Rim Trail is a favorite high country trail, boasting vast stretches of forest, deserts, and mountains extending from all sides of the trail. The Peter Skene Ogden National Scenic Trail is accessible from the campground and parallels Paulina Creek, passing several waterfalls along the way, as it ascends 8.5 miles to the spectacular Paulina Lake.
