Lofton Reservoir Campground

Lofton Reservoir Campground is one of the three main points of interest in the Lofton Recreation Area. Located 45 minutes east of Bly, Oregon, this highly developed campground features 26 campsites.  24 of the campsites are RV sites. The road is paved all the way to Lofton Area Reservoir, ideal if you’re towing a trailer or boat.

A camp host is on site throughout the summer months and provides visitor information. These spacious campsites accommodate trailers and feature grills, fire rings, picnic tables, and tent pads. There are four vault toilets, five group sites, and one ADA designated site.

This high elevation forest setting showcases a mixed conifer stand. The refreshing lakeside environment attracts migratory birds and deer. Although the water level varies in the reservoir, it is stocked annually. There is a boat ramp and dock that is ADA accessible.

Besides fishing and relaxing, you can hike 1.5 miles to Heart Lake on a defined trail. This hike is uphill on the way back to Lofton, making it a moderate 3 mile round-trip trek. Some campers bring their pole, food, and make it a day outing of fishing, picnicking, and hiking.

There is no potable water. Visitors need to pack an adequate supply of water.
