Diamond Craters is located near the center of Harney County in southeast Oregon's high desert country. The area lies about 40 air miles southeast of Burns in Township 28 and 29 South, Range 32 East. It is remote from population centers but access is not difficult. One route is southeast from Burns on Oregon State Highway 78 to the junction at New Princeton, then south and west by well-marked all-weather roads that skirt the eastern and southern parts of the Craters. Another route is south from Burns via Oregon State Highway 205 and Diamond Lane, a paved county road.
