2 RV Parks near Frenchglen, Oregon
Jun 2018 - $8.00
From Frenchglen this is about a 3-mile drive on a washboard dirt road at 15 mph to get to the campground area. Many of the campsites are best for smaller rigs, but we had a few to choose from that fit our truck and small travel trailer. Plenty of shade available on some sites, and lots of space. Very scenic. I think this would be a great place to stay in the spring or fall outside of mosquito season, unfortunately when we camped there they were unbearable. A month sooner would have been better due to the cooler weather. Spray repels the mosquitoes somewhat but not enough ... they'll bite through your clothing like nothing. Many of the people camping at the park were bird nerds with full mosquito netting and gear. We were planning to stay 2 nights but left after 1. - M_i_k_e_y

This is one of the nicest BLM campgrounds we've been to. Some sites are close, others far apart. During our stay we had options for both. Clean restrooms, pit toilets, nice cement picnic tables, fire pits. Hikes available, on the Blitzen river. Wild Redside Trout fishing, catch and release. At the foot of the Steens Mountain, take the 50 mile loop road to the top and back. Beautiful, about 10,000 feet at the top. We had early snow, but it melted off when the weather warmed. Near the little town of French Glen, store, gas, hotel and school is about it. Go to the French Glenn hotel for breakfast lunch or dinner. Great food in this historic little hotel. Be prepared for Ralph. Gravel road 3 miles from town. Dusty and washboard, but worth the effort. Birders Paradise. - Coastalcamper

Nicest BLM campground we've ever seen. Newer ADA bathrooms. Many sites spaced quite far apart. Grass growing vigorously in May, mowed by park staff. Lovely trail taking off from the end of the campground along the Blitzen River. Tried to make the loop on the Wilderness Nature trail but never found a place where it would loop around back to the campground. Beautiful hike anyway. The springs are very pretty, and the river provides serenity and habitat for lots of birds. We saw a pair of cinnamon teal in the waterway from the springs to the river. This waterway flows through the campground. No mosquitoes during our visit, but while eating at the Frenchglen Hotel (excellent food BTW) we overheard a BLM field worker saying they would be out soon "in force." The loop road to Steens (closed this early) starts within walking distance of the park. The park is at the south end of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge, a great place to stay while exploring there. - K and R on the road

The good: Owners were nice. Showers were clean. RV sites were long. Phone service was good (Verizon). Park was pretty quiet. The rest: RV sites were not very level but some better than others. Water was good for washing and bathing, but pretty bad for drinking. WiFi was terrible. They acknowledge it was slow, but that adjective did not begin to cover the speed, and it kept going out. Early is season the grasses around RV sites were green, but a little later it is going to be dry and brown. Sites 58,59 were 50 amp and reservable and with best views. The owners have had the park for 8 years and it really doesn't look like they have done much to improve it at a first glance. All that being said, I would stay there again. - cariboo

From Frenchglen, 3 miles on gravel road, with a lot of washboarding, but closest park with full service to the beautiful Steen Mountains. Sites are not too level, but work. Owners have remodeled the bathrooms/showers, clean. Maybe one out of four tables are usable. They are also remodeling the office and small store area. No wood available when we were there, found some at the store in town. Wi-Fi not very strong. Nice BLM campground nearby if you want to dry camp. - Coastalcamper

The access road is gravel and 2.7 miles of road settling washboard, 10mph was all I could do. But well worth the trouble. Beautiful views, nice clean sights. We only stayed one night. - Clyde Clevenger
