Mission Statement: "To provide exceptional hospitality for youth, families and organizations to gather in a safe and secure environment and experience the beauty of the Malheur National Forest."

If you are looking for the perfect spot to bring your youth group, hold a corporate training or retreat, hold your class or family reunion, or just spend time with your family - Lake Creek Youth Camp in Logan Valley is the place! We cater primarily to youth groups and families, but also to other organized (and non-organized) groups and individuals on a space available basis.

"Our Leadership Camp held at Lake Creek Camp is one of the best sites in the state of Oregon!!! Thanks again."

--Loren Bebb, FFA Advisor


The main lodge boasts a fireplace, furnished with tables and chairs for workshops and meetings as well as meals. A full service kitchen and cook provide appetizing meals for your enjoyment. A piano, ping-pong table, books and other games are provided in the lodge.

Our central recreation room is a comfortable gathering spot for workshops and meetings. Or just relax with friends by the fireplace.

Five A-frame bunkhouses and five straight-sided bunkhouses are available that sleep up to 10 each and can house up to 100 guests. Special arrangements may be made for tents and RV's, although there are no RV hook-ups. Bath houses have recently been renovated.

The Lodge, both bath houses, and the 5 new cabins are ADA accessible.


A variety of activities are available including biking, horseshoes, volleyball, baseball, ping-pong or just hanging out by the campfire on the grounds. The surrounding 58,000 acre wilderness area provides opportunities for hiking, photography, fishing or just relaxing and breathing fresh, clean air.

Wildlife abounds in grassy meadows and tall timber surrounds the rustic lodge. A mountain stream runs through the camp with a trail system that allows observation of native plants, wild flowers and wildlife including deer, elk and antelope.


Located in North-Eastern Oregon, adjacent to the Strawberry Mountain Wilderness area of the Malheur National Forest about 30 miles south and east of John Day, and about 19 miles east of Seneca, the camp is surrounded by timber, meadows,and mountains.

"I just wanted to pass on a quick note to thank the folks at Lake Creek Camp (LCC) for the great weekend we had.

To a person, our group was extremely pleased with the staff,food,facilities and the general relaxed atmosphere around camp. The staff (Reb, King and Ron) was quite accommodating with meal schedules and did I mention that the food was GREAT! Having a quiet place to kick back and relax around the campfire after a long day of riding was nice. We plan to make this an annual event."
