1 Review of Quesnel - John Day Dam
What a wonderful little hidden gem of a campsite

Only a mile off I-84 down an easy dirt road, this little site sees some day use for kite surfers, kayakers and fishermen, but also has plenty of space for a number of RVs to set up camp, just feet above the Columbia. We arrived right at sunset, which was gorgeous over the mountain tops and river. There ended being 3 or 4 RVs set up overnight, plus 2 tent campers on a Saturday night. Peaceful and quiet, easy on and off the highway, perfect little overnight stop while driving back to Portland. Didn’t hear highway noise, even though we were that close to the interstate. Would definitely use again.

Had 2 of 4 bars on AT&T. This site is also known as Threemile Canyon Park according to the signs from the highway.
