The North Fork John Day Ranger District of the Umatilla National Forest encompasses 455,000 acres in the heart of eastern Oregon’s Blue Mountains. Diverse and complex, the District possesses abundant resources and offers year-round recreation opportunities.

Recreation use on this District is heaviest during hunting season, which begins in mid-August with archery season, and extends through cow elk permit season in late November. Camping in the area has always been popular, with 14 developed campgrounds and countless undeveloped sites where visitors can get away from it all. The recreation rental cabins at the historic Fremont Powerhouse site (H-6) have also become very popular. Don’t forget about fishing for trout at Olive Lake, Lost Lake, and Jumpoff Joe Lake, or on the North Fork John Day River.

Plant communities range from juniper/sage/bunchgrass at 2,600-foot elevation in the Potamus Creek area to subalpine fir/whitebark pine habitats at the 8,000-foot elevation near Vinegar Hill in the Vinegar Hill-Indian Rock Scenic Area (F-6, G-7).
