CAMPGROUND NAME: Union Creek VISIT DATE: 06/30/2006 UPDATE DATE: 4/5/2015 STATE: Oregon REGION: Pacific Northwest RANGER DISTRICT: Whitman NEAREST CITY/TOWN: Baker City RESERVATIONS: 1-877-444-6777 or make on-line reservation DIRECTIONS: From Baker City, OR, take State Rt 7 south 16.7 miles to campground on left. GENERAL COMMENTS: The elevation is 4,100 ft. The campground, on the north side of Phillips Reservoir in a stand of Ponderosa pine, has three loops (A, B & C) and a walk-in tent area. The walk-in tent area is closest to the reservoir and a few campsites in the Loops have a limited view of the water but there are no sites adjacent to the water. Loop B and C have electric and water hook-ups while Loop A has full-hook-ups. A grass understory and no middlestory in the Loops means there is little privacy. The tent area does have sites tucked into the riparian environment along a small stream providing some seclusion and privacy. Possible day trips are the ghost town of Granite, historic Sumpter with the Sumpter Dredge, Sumpter Valley [narrow-gauge steam] Railroad, and a limited selection of stores and cafes for a cook's night out.

CAMPGROUND NAME: Yellow Pine VISIT DATE: 06/29/2006 UPDATE DATE: 4/5/2015 STATE: Oregon REGION: Pacific Northwest RANGER DISTRICT: Whitman NEAREST CITY/TOWN: Unity RESERVATIONS: No DIRECTIONS: From Unity, OR take US Rt 26 west and go 8.8 miles to campground sign. Turn right at sign onto a gravel road and go 0.3 miles to campground. GENERAL COMMENTS: The elevation is 4,700 ft. This campground, a large single loop close to but not on South Fork Burnt River, is well named since it is in a stand of grand old Ponderosa pine, also called Yellow pine. The Ponderosa pines, widely spaced and towering, allow enough sunlight for a pleasant grass and wildflower carpet-like understory. However, with no middlestory, privacy is minimum. This is a nice RV- friendly campground convenient to US26 but far enough away to experience very little traffic noise. The campground is pack it in, pack it out.
