Pringle Falls Campground Description

Pringle Falls Campground is a small campground with just 7 sites formatted in a loop and located on the banks of the Deschutes River.  The name suggests that there may be a waterfall nearby, however, Pringle Falls is more of a cascade of rapids that drop roughly 25 feet over a distance of 800 feet.  The actual drop is spread out over a good amount of distance.  Furthermore, that cascades are surrounded by private land so viewing them is difficult.  Pringle Falls is considered to the be the “first” waterfall on the Deschutes River.

Even so, Pringle Falls is a quaint little campground located down a beat-up old dirt road.  Amenities are sparse with simple outhouses and no running water, picnic tables and fire pits.

Camping in this part of Oregon is almost always rewarding.  The forests are clean and easy to walk through, air is fresh and rivers are clean.  Swimming at Pringle Falls Campground is manageable through the water from the Deschutes River can be very cold.

Something to note is that there is private property near this campground which gives it the feeling of not really being “out there”.  You can find a convenience store just a short drive 5 mile drive towards La Pine.
