A pleasant, small spring runs through the center of this popular, shaded campground. Located just southwest of Sisters, Oregon, Cold Springs Campground is nestled below a thick Ponderosa Pine forest mixed with aspen in the wet areas.
Total Escape can show you smaller campgrounds, deeper in nature, and most are free. DanaMite gives serious, first hand knowledge on primitive camp sites on backroads, from Baja to Shasta. You need good maps to find these remote camp spots, and maybe even a 4x4.
