We have stayed many times and this time the internet did not work well. The staff was "crispy" with us but they are very busy with antelope hunters this week; the Malheur Refuge was closed since the occupation due to damage we understand. That is so sad. We camped at The Narrows RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We came to this remote (about 25 miles south of Burns) location because of its proximity to Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and Steens Mountain. The park is big-rig friendly and well laid out with ample space between sites and each site has a little shade from planted shrubs. All the roads are gravel and each site has a nice pad with picnic table and an elevated fire pit. These pads are a bit too far forward to be adjacent to doors/awnings on most RVs but that's not a big deal. You can get gas and diesel here, but expect to pay more (currently 24% more for diesel) than in Burns. The staff (which also operates an on-site restaurant and small store) was very friendly and helpful. The private restrooms/showers were very clean and well stocked and prices at the nice laundromat were very reasonable. There's a nice grassy area where dogs are apparently allowed (despite the sign) as long as their owners pick up after them. The price reflects Passport America rates for which there are no day-of-week or length-of-stay restrictions, which is unusual but much appreciated! We would definitely stay here again. We camped at The Narrows RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The refuge still hast opened since it occupation this past winter, but you can drive many of the roads. The park owners have planted lots of fruiting shrubs that attract American Pipits, Robins, etc. About a dozen Common Nighthawks roost throughout the park. Steens Mountain scenic loop to the south is worth the long, dusty drive; the views from there are great! We saw lots of wildlife there including two herds of wild horses.

We really enjoyed our stay at this very quiet, nicely laid out park. Nice landscaping that attracted lots of birds. Very close to Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Sites are long and level with a concrete patio, a fire pit, and picnic table. There is an onsite cafe and store as well as a laundromat. My only 'ding' to keep this park from being a 10 is the relatively long distance to Burns for grocery shopping and fuel. Although fuel is sold at the park, it is much more expensive than in Burns. We camped at The Narrows RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Laundromat is small but nice and clean. $1.50 per washer, $1.50 per dryer. Cafe food is a bit pricey, but tasty! This park would not be everyone's cup of tea, but if you like quiet and are interested in the wildlife refuge and surrounding attractions such as Frenchglen and Steen's Mountain, it's a perfect little gem.

Rate is Passport America. Large, open park with long, level gravel pull-thrus. Each site has a patio, table, grill table, and fire ring, and a small tree, all convenient to the front of the RV. Good hookups, but WiFi didn't work during our stay. Cable TV was good, and Verizon cell/4G were slow due to the remote location. Convenient to the wildlife refuge and Steens Mountain, but not much in the area. On-site restaurant was open seven days a week along with small store. Nice stay at the PA rate but not at the full rate. We camped at The Narrows RV Park in a Motorhome.

Malheur Wildlife Refuge is one of the premier birding locations in the US, but bring plenty of mosquito repellant. The Steens Mountain scenic loop is surprisingly scenic and shouldn't be missed.

This is a very well run, clean RV park near Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. We stayed 5 nights to do some 'birding' and explore southeast Oregon. Not fancy, but good size level gravel sites with good 50 amp service, water and sewer. It was quiet at night and we felt safe. We will be back to visit this interesting part of Oregon again. We camped at The Narrows RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The drive to Fields, OR and the Alvord Desert was very interesting. Only drawback was the fuel cost at the Narrows was high for the area.

Concur with previous reviews - no-frills park with great location for visiting the wildlife refuge, Diamond Craters and Steens Mountain area. Rate shown is for Passport America (and Escapees). We camped at The Narrows RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sites are level gravel, with a brick patio, large picnic table, metal grill stand and shade tree. This is a great camp to explore the wildlife and natural areas around. Buy groceries before you get here, nearest town (Burns) is almost 30 miles away. We camped at The Narrows RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great park. It was pretty empty during our stay (maybe that's why it was so peaceful) but it fit all our requirements: reliable free wifi basic cable friendly owners enough room to walk the mutts without feeling crowded. The Passport America rate is only $13/night. AND there's a pool table in the onsite saloon :) We camped at The Narrows RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here many times to watch the birds and visit Steens Mountain. It is a perfect spot because their internet is very good and they have a few channels on cable. The staff is friendly, they allow a well behaved dog to be off leash with their German Shepherd. There is one yurt to rent, cafe and little store on site. This is an excellent jump off spot for this entire area. We camped at The Narrows RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great site with good power, water and sewer. Good springboard for Sod House Ranch, Wild Life Refuge and Lake Harney. No grass for the dog. All gravel. Water quality excellent. Restaurant is slow, but good food. Store, gasoline, diesel, and propane are all available. Easy parking and someday there will be shade. We camped at The Narrows RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is all about location. Wildlife viewers and scenery admirers know this area very well and this park is well situated. Unfortunately the park is all gravel and dust and the only shade you'll find is what you bring. The guests are what make this place nicer. In the evenings we all had our stories to tell of our days adventures. The park has a store, restaurant, bar and fuel to go along with what you would expect from an RV Park. We camped at The Narrows RV Park in a Motorhome.

We come out here from Bend every year. We like the park, very quiet, beautiful distant views. Quiet area with all the amenities that work well. We use this park as a base camp to tour the Steens Mountain, Alvord desert area, and see the birds. We camped at The Narrows RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground should be listed under the town of Burns instead of Princeton. There is a town named New Princeton on the map, but no town named Princeton. It is a gravel campground in the desert, but it has real picnic tables at each site. There is adequate room for big rigs. Restrooms are private baths except that it costs $2 for 4 minutes of shower time. Rate is Passport America. We camped at The Narrows RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice park. Mostly pull through's, gravel. Nice concrete pads with picnic tables and metal stands for your BBQ grill. Good landscaping, small trees and shrubs at each site. We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely come back. This is a good base for exploring the Steens Mountains, Diamond Loop, Malheur Lake, etc. Management/owners are very nice and helpful. Good restaurant on site. Gas, diesel and propane available. We camped at The Narrows RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Well run. Nice Park, nice people. Clean, level sites with nice tables and grill platforms. Food in cafe very good. If you come by, do fill up your tanks as it a long way to the next town in any direction. We camped at The Narrows RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
