About Target Meadows Campground

Located around a scenic meadow and surrounded by majestic trees such as Engelmann spruce and Lodgepole pine, Target Meadows has a unique history.  It was used by U.S. Army soldiers stationed at Ft. Walla Walla as a summer encampment and artillary range from the late 1880s through 1906.  Visitors who explore the campground and surrounding area can even find grooves in trees left by the Calvary's bullets.  Located at the end of the road is the Burnt Cabin Trailhead.  This trail will lead you down to the South Fork Walla Walla River Trail.

Peaceful with small spaces

I could hear the leaves falling as I walked the 20 yards past the campsite to a little clearing. This National Forest campground is easily accessible by a decent gravel road.

Sites are a little close together, but it was the shoulder season, so there were only a handful of other campers, all of whom were in RVs.

There was an additional larger section of campground that was closed off for the winter. That section looked like it had running water in the past, but a sign said there was some issue with it being undrinkable and that rangers were working on it.

Definite bear presence in this area. We saw a bunch of scat and turned around on the Burnt Cabin hike (trailhead about a half mile up the road) because we distinctly smelled bear.

Finally, this spot is at elevation and near a ski hill, so it seems safe to assume it can get dumped on with snow.
