WHERE TO STAY

CAMPING: Maupin, Oregon Area

  • Maupin City Park (541-395-2252): Reservations are required to insure a spot on a busy weekend! They are located along the banks of the Deschutes, right across the street from our shop.
     
  • Riverview Campground (541-395-2611): a private campground located just where the river access road takes off for Harpham Flat. Reservations are recommended there as well.
  • Both of these campgrounds do have curfews for quiet time making them a good choice for families and folks who like a little more peace and quiet while camping

  • The BLM also has several designated campsites along the Deschutes near Maupin. They are a first-come, first-served basis (no reservations). Fee boxes are installed for a self-pay system. Download chart described below for more details.

    Some of the campsites are for groups - 24 people is the maximum. Harpham Flat, Wapinitia and White River are the larger group sites. They offer good camping facilities (rest rooms), and are not far from our shop or the town of Maupin.
     
    There are also sites for smaller groups. It is recommended that you get there early if you want a campsite on a busy weekend (mid-July to the end of August).

    You can also go to the BLM website, now www.recreation.gov - to check on campsites on this upriver stretch. Remember, even if there is an outdoor bathroom at your campsite, you must still bring and set up a porta-potty because outdoor bathrooms on this stretch of river are changing and are not a sure thing even when listed.
