The Ollokot Campground is located in an old growth ponderosa pine forest along the Wild and Scenic Imnaha River. As a favorite weekend 'get away' or summer destination site, the area remains popular for those wanting to fish, pick berries, take day hikes, or explore along the Hells Canyon Scenic Byway. The campground has accessible campsites, a well for drinking water and vault toilets.
More and more I'm staying at USFS campgrounds and enjoying the experiences. Yes, they're dry, but they're cheap, dark, quiet and in exceptionally beautiful places. Ollokot is in the Hell's Canyon Recreation area and is seriously the best campground I've encounter on my latest 4 week fall trip. Located right on the Imnaha River, the scenery is breathtaking, the sites are big with lots of room. It's a short drive up to the Hell's Canyon Overlook which is spectacular. Only downside is the road out of Joseph to get there…..it's not for the faint of heart if you have a larger RV. Narrow, potholes and absolutely no wiggle room. It's six inches between you and the side of the canyon. So take it SLOW!!!
