Burnt River Camp


By Dominic Ricci – GPAA/LDMA Executive Director of Operations


Heigh-ho, heigh-ho, it's off to camp we go

The longer we stay, the cheaper it gets

Heigh-ho, heigh-ho

Heigh-ho, heigh-ho, it's off to camp we go

The longer we stay, the cheaper it gets

Heigh-ho, heigh-ho
Heigh-ho hum

We dig, dig, dig and mine the whole day through
To dig, dig, dig is what we really like to do
It ain't no trick to get rich quick
If you dig dig dig with a shovel or a pick
In a camp! In a mine!
Where a million gold flakes shine!

We dig, dig, dig from early morn till night
We dig, dig, dig up everything in sight
We dig up gems and gold by the score
A thousand rubies, sometimes more
But we don't know what we dig 'em for
We dig dig dig a-dig dig

If you love to camp, then LDMA is a great choice, especially for long term camping. A great choice if you want to stay at a single camp for up to six months before moving on to your next destination.


New to full time RVing, Bob and Linda Baker spend six months at LDMA Stanton Camp in Arizona, then work their way back visiting friends and family as they head to LDMA Burnt River Camp in Eastern Oregon for the Summer.


“LDMA is our family! We love spending time at the different camps, creating memories with new and long-term family (friends),” shares Linda.


LDMA started offering season passes for discounted rates at different camps a year or so ago. Now, with all ten existing camps, and any future camps that come on board, we have a system in place that if staying thirty days or more you will get a nightly discount off the regular rates. Stay longer than four months and it gets even cheaper.


Where else can you camp for up to six months for as little as $2.00 per night? Sure, you can stay for free on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) public land . . . for up to fourteen days . . . before having to move. Oh, but you
