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.
A well maintained beautiful state park on the river. It has full amenities. All the spots are flat with a paved spot for our trailer.
Living in Idaho near the border of Idaho, I was looking for a great catfishing spot on the Snake River. I found this campground along the Snake just on the other side of the border - eastern Oregon. The campgrounds are AWESOME!!! The have all the amenities for RV camping. They do have tent camping sites as well. There is some great history of the area and we were appreciative of how the State Park system displayed it. Great fishing for the shore angler as well as boat anglers. I fished from my kayak and caught crappie and catfish as well as some smallmouth bass. I would definitely camp here again. They do have a dump station for RVs as well as restrooms. Each site has a fire pit and picnic table.
The park is large and the sites are well spaced. You can walk down the long grass to the river and down steps to the water. Or just sit around camp and squirrel watch! Perfect place to stay if you want to start the next day by cruising right past Boise! It's the only real oasis for miles around.
We just stopped here for the night, but it’s a pretty place to spend time out on the lake. Also neat for history buffs, since this was an important site on the Oregon trail. The campground is pretty large and modern-ish but basic, the ranger programs stand out as special. We’d return and spend more time.
