Olive Lake Campground

Olive Lake Campground

Nestled on the edge of a lake, high in the Blue Mountains of Eastern Oregon, this popular campground is only 8 miles west of the historic Fremont Powerhouse and 12 miles west of the old mining town of Granite.  The campground features 28 campsites and 7 accessible toilet facilities.  Other features include a 2-mile hiking trail around the lake with nearby access to wilderness and scenic area trails, a boat ramp and 2 docks. There is no potable water or garbage service, so please pack your garbage home.  

Besides beautiful scenery, the lake offers many opportunities for wildlife viewing--particularly a nesting pair of osprey that return annually.  Activities in this area include fishing, boating, swimming, hiking, hunting, and photography.  Within 20 miles are several historic sites.

March 23, 2021: Inaccessible at this time to passenger vehicles.  Snowshoers, skiers and snowmobilers can utilize the area.

SUMMER 2021 - Olive Lake Campground will open on July 1st.  This delayed opening will allow crews to remove the heavy mortality of trees resulting from an extended beetle infestation.
