Nice CG in NE Oregon on the Snake River. Would be so much nicer if they watered the grass. Showers were cold. So many flies. Never did figure out why? Easy in and out.
Nice spacious park with privacy and open areas. Paved road and pads, mostly level. Nice hosts. Some hi way noise, not to bad. Easy in/out.
Farewell bend is a day use state park and campground located near Huntington Oregon and nestled on the Snake River.
The park is a dry desert setting with yellowing grasses, tall spiny trees and sand dunes. The snake river is a deep emerald green flowing with foam from the upriver reservoir.
The campground has three large loops that can accommodate the largest of personal busses down to the classic sleeping bag. There are electric and water connections, a sewer dump and a boat launch. There are a couple of rentable waterfront cabins available on C-loop.
Many fisherman come here to enjoy the well stocked waters, keep an eye out for the other river wildlife commonly seen, rattle snakes. Other water sports are welcome here, boating and waterskiing happens all day long. The dunes across the river are a popular off-road and motorized fun location.
The river is pretty much inaccessible from the campgrounds, the day use area allows for access to the rocky beach, but the waters edge is not clean sadly, polluted with litter and river foam.
The park is a very warm and sunny Oregon escape with little to no cellular service.
This is a very nice campground along the Snake River. There are lots of trees, lots of grass and shade. Places to go fishing as well. Perfect spot for a weekend camping trip.
Love this place, close to home. Not a lot to do but boat and fish, but that is our liking. Campground and facilities are always clean. Hosts and rangers always helpful
Spent one night here in our camper and had a great time. Outstanding views of the mountains and Snake River. Great Oregon State Park staff, very clean campground and facilities. Would definitely go back again.
This was a welcome respite for a weary traveler. The sites and facilities were clean and spacious. The views of the Snake River were fantastic and the interpretive Oregon Trail exhibit is interesting. The ONLY drawback is a bit of highway noise, as the campground is just a few hundred feet from I84, but, hey, that’s also why it was so convenient!
As hard as they tried, it seemed park staff could not keep enough water on the campground grass to keep it green. It was 100+ both nights we were there. Our RV A/C never turned off! The water level was so low, the river didn’t even look inviting. The only folks we ever saw were park staff and the poor soles that were tent camping. RVers were all inside with AC.
We’d consider staying here again… at a cooler time… for one night while passing through.
No AT&T service.
We saw snakes, lizards, squirrels, rabbits, frogs, an owl, and lots of geese out on the water.
It is very hot there so get a campground with at least one big tree, we hung out under our tree. The camp rangers were nice and helpful. They had a ice machine , I was grateful for that. In some areas the grass is dry so take a tarp to put under your tent. The reservoir was huge. It was muddy in some spots but once you get out there its clean , just take water shoes. There is a lot of mosquito so take lot of bug spray but that was the only thing that was bad.
Easy camping with a nice little beach area. Kids enjoyed the historical fearures. Adults enjoyed the historical accounts of the area.
