A pleasant, small spring runs through the center of this popular, shaded campground. Located just southwest of Sisters, Cold Springs Campground is nestled below a thick Ponderosa Pine forest mixed with birches in the wet areas. This campground offers opportunities for hiking and bird watching. This is a great option for the whole family.
The campground is well-used due to its close proximity to the nearby town of Sisters, but rarely ever full except during certain festival times in Sisters like the rodeo, the quilt show, and some holidays. During these times it is best to arrive a little early if possible. While Cold Springs is a favorite with some campers, it is very popular as a substitute campsite when the campgrounds on the Metolius are full. This is a great family campground where the kids can ride their bikes and families can go on short hikes. The campground road goes in a large circle and young ones are relatively safe from getting lost since the road goes past their campsite every quarter mile. Water is available by hand pump and there are three vault style toilets.
