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.
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).
