Oregon: Chickahominy Reservoir BLM Campground

Scroll down to content

On our last night in Oregon, we didn’t have a reservation. We had three options:

Our goal was to reach the area, and check the reservoir availability first. Sites here are first come, first served, so we didn’t know if we would find a site. Lucky for us, there were plenty of sites open – a rare find in the middle of tourist season!

Spaces are half-moon shaped, with gravel cover, a picnic table, and a fire pit. Due to fire restrictions (fire danger was HIGH), we did not use the pit/grill.

Even more clouds, with a pit toilet building in the distance.

The skies were awesome, with puffy white clouds in the distance.

For this campground, you select a site then fill out the pay envelope, and put the envelope stub on a clip at your site.

Interestingly enough, we had decent cel phone reception here – good enough to upload cel phone photos to Facebook and our website media gallery. Considering we feel like we are out in the middle of nowhere, this was a good surprise.

Our closest neighbor is at least two sites away. 😎

If you are ever on Hwy 20 heading towards Burns, check out this campground. It is also a recreational fishery, stocked with rainbow trout fingerlings. No day use fee is charged, but overnight camping is $8/night (half-price if you have an annual interagency pass).
