Once the home of a Forest Service Ranger Station, the 100-acre Olallie Meadow is located on the north side of 7,215-foot Olallie Butte, roughly 5 miles north of Olallie Lake.

The campground is merely a sprinkling of 7 campsites along an old dirt road off of NF-4220.  It offers one vault toilet and no potable water.  The campground's most iconic feature is the old cabin along the edge of the meadow, a relic of a lost time and something you might see in an old western film.  Mostly boarded up now, the cabin is open and can be used as a shelter – a good place to keep dry should the weather turn south on you.

From Olallie Meadow it is only a short drive to access all the attractions of the Olallie Lake Scenic Area, including more than 200 mountain lakes, stunning views, and access into the Mount Jefferson Wilderness.
