Trip Report

Pros: 
Very remote and serene area and lake. Nearby hiking.
Cons: 
Mosquitos in early summer. 18 miles of gravel and rugged road requiring four-wheel drive to access.

Located within the lands managed by The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, Breitenbush Lake Campground might be one of the most underutilized campgrounds in Oregon, so much so that a stay here is free of charge.

Access via Olallie Lake to the campground is rough, including a 2-mile stretch of NF-4220 that is best left to four-wheel drive vehicles, and with as many as 200 lakes in the area early summer comes with plenty of mosquitos. So, why visit? Breitenbush Lake is set in the middle of some of Oregon’s most pristine wilderness, you'll most likely avoid the mid-summer crowds, the campground affords very spacious campsites that are perfect for large groups and are dotted around the lake’s shore, and it is located at the trailhead of one of the state’s most prized outdoor destinations, Jefferson Park.

That said, pack well as the campground offers few amenities, and postpone your visit until August and September to avoid mosquitos.

Note: Due to snowpack, roads leading into the Olallie Lake Scenic Area can be closed as late as the beginning of July.
