Free Guide to Northwest Camping
Emigrant Springs State Park
Campground Description: Emigrant Springs is owned and operated by the State of Oregon. The authors of this guide find Emigrant Springs campground to be one of the premier state campgrounds in northeastern Oregon. It is located 1/2 hour south of Pendleton on Interstate 84. Although only 1/2 hour away, the very steep climb up into the Blue Mountains on this stretch of I-84 offers dramatic changes. While the Pendleton area is relatively flat wheat land, Immigrant Springs is forested and a full 20° cooler than the Pendleton area. In addition to tent camping and RV camping, Immigrant Springs campground offers cabin rentals and a horse camp. Nearby is the do not miss Oregon Trail Interpretive Center (take exit 243 and follow the signs). Open year round. In the summer, reservations are strongly recommended.

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds. The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site. Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide. Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do allow RV camping but not tent camping. If in doubt, call the campground first.
The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners. In this way we ensure that every description in this free guide is unbiased. Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tent camping and all types of RV camping. While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.
Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions. New campgrounds are added weekly.
