We stopped by Anthony Lakes on our way back to the Willamette Valley from Baker City. The campsite is on a property that becomes a ski resort in the winter (it's at over ~7000 ft). The campground was immaculately maintained and had lots of recreation options. On weekends in the summer, the ski lift becomes a mountain biking lift, there are hiking trails, and of course lakes. The lakes themselves are pretty small, but big enough for some kayak adventuring and swimming. We got caught in a summer thunderstorm, so we were glad we had a shelter to pop up.
Our site was private with access to the lake trail. Pit toilets, but everything was very clean. There are also walk-up sites around the back of the lake which had more mosquitos, but were very spacious. It looks like there is one yurt on top of the mountain. The mountain bike path goes by it, and it looks like it has great views.
This was an easy drive from Baker City, a little far from Portland unless you're going to make a multi-day vacation out of it. On the way through the mountains, there's plenty of gold mining history, a historical dredge, and some ghost towns to stop by.
Lots of chipmunks, so watch what you leave out (even momentarily).
We drove through here while staying at Anthony Lakes, which is located across the street. Mud Lake Campground is closer to the road than Anthony Lakes, and the lake was more stagnant and less picturesque than the alternative. To be fair, it looked like it was undergoing changes/renovations while we were passing through. Some of the spots are flatter and perhaps more private than at Anthony Lakes. Hiking options nearby are nice. High elevation, so chilly at night for longer than you might expect (~7000 ft elevation).
I enjoyed my night at this campground. The spots by the river offer lovely views. Those in the interior, not so much. There were many large rigs here. The walking/running trail at the back of the campground is in good condition and meanders along for 3 miles, 1.5 in either direction from the campground. The bathrooms are clean, warm, showers are hot. Mirrors and an electric outlet let you use your hairdryer in the spacious bathroom. I hooked up to 30 amps and it worked great. Water was off during my stay. There is okay wifi, better than I expected, but a little slow. I checked in using pay by envelope after consulting the board at the entrance for available spots. Grocery, gas, a brewery and a cafe were nearby. I stayed in winter, but a nice beach is right next door. There is a playground in the center of the camp and a huge frisbee golf course off the trail. Kids will enjoy the woodsy areas off the hiking path.
Quiet, scenic with the romantic sound of trains passing through in the night. I highly recommend.
There is a small campground with 6 sites mostly good for campers or tent in a grove of trees with a vaulted outhouse. in the surrounding aria there are plenty of dispersed campsites that can hold any size RV Around the form almost completely shaded to full sun. It is a designated ATV aria with tons of trails used by hikers and horses in the fall it is a favorite spot for hunters
cell service is serves is sporty from 3 bars to none
We stayed here in the off season, it’s first come first served parking, which ended up being really great for us. We got to park with a view of the river and away from other RVs. The spaces are large, there is a bathroom and showers on site. There is a nice walking path, and loads of grass and beach and places to walk your dog. We all had a very nice overnight experience.
This state park campground has 27 sites without hook ups. It is situated between Highway 395 and scenic Camas Creek. There are flush toilets and water is available. If there is a camp host, there should be firewood for sale. We have camped there in the fall just before it closed for the season mid-October and again in mid-May. Both times we were able to get a site along the creek. Because it is laid out along the highway, do expect some road noise especially when logging operations are happening. There is shade from the large Ponderosa pine trees. The sites are paved and large enough for our pop up truck camper. There are few places to camp along Highway 395 unless you drive into the national forests to disperse camp.
There are few campgrounds near Umatilla, OR and when we were there several public facilities were closed. We very rarely ever stay at RV parks but it was getting late and we had just driven on 395 through the snow and fog. There were tent sites available for $20 so we checked in at the office to be assigned our spot. Unfortunately, someone was there who hadn’t paid so we were told to choose another. They had the better spot but we just took another as they were in a tent and probably freezing to death.
During the night, some people camping in their truck would start the engine every hour to keep warm plus the truck traffic over the I-82 bridge was noisy. This was in late October 2020 during a cold snap.
The only good thing is that the flush toilets were clean and you could take showers using coins. There was a key code for the bathrooms and free WiFi. There were shade trees and a nice lawn area, but the area with hookups was further from the traffic.
We would probably not stay here again.
Be advised that if you go in the off-season the spots are first come first served. We were disappointed to find there was no water hookup as they had already winterized. It would have been nice if that had been included in the outgoing message so we could have gotten water else wear…. as the nightly rate was the same with or without. Other than that it was a clean and comfortable park with a great 2.8 mile trail for biking and/or walking along the river. The trail has a great little microbrewery that serves pizza so bring your wallet! If you venture down to the Rivers Edge Lodge you’ll find the trail continues a bit further along the river out in front. I would give this a 5 star but my camping style requires more trees and privacy but as far as open RV Parks this was very nice. We were in spot 27 which sits sideways to the river with a nice view.
