Location

Built in the late 1800’s Peter French Round Barn is the only surviving round barn corral in the Blitzen Valley.

To find the Round Barn, travel south two miles past Buena Vista (17 miles north of Frenchglen) on Hwy 205. Turn left on Diamond Lane. This is a paved road that will lead to Diamond, Diamond Craters, and the Round Barn. Travel 6.8 miles and turn left (north) on Lava Beds Road. Travel 10 miles (past Diamond Craters) and look for the signs to the Round Barn. Don’t forget to stop in at the gift shop for cold drinks and novelties.
