Muleshoe Recreation Site, Oregon

Muleshoe Recreation Site, Oregon

Muleshoe, like most BLM (Bureau of Land Management) sites, is relatively unimproved, uncrowded, and inexpensive.  For us, this is camping at its best.  We are happy with a level parking space, a picnic table, and an accessible (chemical will do) toilet.  Mule Shoe Camping

A party of three young men at the other end of about eight sites apparently carried their tent, or perhaps only sleeping bags, down the steep trail to the John Day River for the night.

We love camping by running water–what a lullaby it can be!–but here our abilities limited us to the birds-eye view of the river and a ground-squirrel view of the multi-layered plateau behind us.
