Description: 4,200-foot elevation. 36 campsites under the cottonwood and juniper trees near the Donner und Blitzen Wild and Scenic River. This campground was named for a series of springs which flows through the area. The rock bluffs above the campground were formed by lava and ash flows. Many types of warblers, raptors, and other birds nest at or migrate through Page Springs. Bighorn sheep live in the northeastern end of Steens Mountain, and you can see a wild horse herd on the southwest end of the loop road.

Rattlesnakes, ticks, and stinging nettles can be found near the river, particularly in summer months. River is difficult to cross in early spring. The road is also great for mountain biking. Other attractions nearby include birdwatching at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and rockhounding at the Diamond Craters lava beds. Fees are charged from April-October. All fees collected are returned to the site for improvements, facility maintenance, and visitor services as part of the Pilot Fee Demonstration Program. Hiking or horse riding in the area.
