I always love camping and fishing the valley, this camping ground is free to use. It is very clean and has great fishing during trout season. Make sure you get here early if you have a rv or trailer during the summer as it’s first come, first serve and locals love the place.
This was a great stop over on our way to Wallowa Lake. We stayed for two nights just to explore the area. We found a spot on the weekend and enjoyed a refreshing dip in the river after a hot drive. The park is open so there’s not much privacy between camps. There’s a fair amount of activity with the day use area, rafters and fishermen so you’re not going to be alone if you prefer company of others. During the weekdays it cleared out considerably. The vault toilet bathrooms were cleaned daily and garbage picked up.
There are 46 water and electric sites and 22 standard sites. Most sites are wooded and private. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The lake is perfect for kayaking and fishing. Only 45 minutes from Lewiston, ID, Winchester Lake State Park is becoming one of our favorites!
The location of the campground is off to the left-hand side of highway 82 (if coming from Elgin) and down a long gravel road. The sites are spaced enough to where you aren't crowded but there still isn't much privacy. Apple trees are everywhere, bringing tons of butterflies and bees to the campground. The bathrooms looked well maintained. The river is nice to swim in or for rafts/kayaks but as for fishing, we didn't have much luck aside from mountain whitefish. Overall a good campground for overnight.
Amidst the rolling hills of farmland and open spaces emerges this deeply forested reservoir. Wonderful fishing, trout, bass, catfish, and even tiger musky. This isn't a great lake for swimming, as it's loaded with thick algae. It is great for boating a small boat or getting lost in the thick pines around it.
I had originally intended on staying at one of three closer campgrounds that I ultimately rejected and made the decision to drive on to Minam State Park. Was I ever happy I did. The only downside was the 2 mile, narrow, gravel road into the park. A little bit of a nail biter with a bigger rig. Once there it was a nice size, dry campground with lots of sites to choose from and right next to the gorgeous Minam River. Whitetail doe with 2 fawns frequented the campground. Lots of fishing, some small trails and wound up walking down the dirt road with dogs as there was literally no traffic and the views were so outstanding. Apple trees alongside the dirt road provided a wonderful, unexpected snack.
This place is amazing. Clean, convenient, and right on a productive stretch of the Minam River. Near the confluence of the Minam and Wallowa rivers, this is a perfect base camp for exploring the waters and towns of the Wallowa mountains. An outfitter/camp store sits a half mile upriver, and the towns of Lostine, Wallowa, Enterprise, Joseph, and Elgin are nearby. For $6 (!) you get a great spot literally just a few dozen feet from the water. Fan-freaking-tastic! Oregon parks are the best.
We pulled our 40ft RV up here and had a great time! Not full hookups but lots of fishing we caught: blue gill, trout, bass, crappie, perch, cat fish and had a small Tiger Muskie on the line but lost it. We were there for two weeks and they did have electricity and water hookups just no dump so we showered and used the bathroom facilities which were very well kept! So we didn’t mind. There is a dump station just in town at the gas station there. Overall great experience and nice to be off the grid for a bit!
The views from this campsite are great! There is access to great swimming holes from this campground. It is a first come, first serve site with limited vegetation between campers. It can be loud depending on neighboards. Toilets are available, so are build in grills with grates at the bottom on the hill.
