Ochoco Divide Campground has become one of our favorite campgrounds when we are headed to Eastern Oregon or when we are coming home from that direction. It is just about an hour from home and makes a great last evening campsite or a place to stay when we start out on our trip late in the day.

Ochoco Divide Campground is located at the top of the Ochoco Divide in an old growth ponderosa pine forest just off scenic U.S. Highway 26 in Oregon.
