Located along the Tucannon River and bordering the Wooten State Wildlife area, the Tucannon Campground has several ponds nearby, managed by the Washington Department of Wildlife. These ponds are stocked with trout, offering excellent fishing opportunities for the entire family. This campground is heavily used from the opening weekend of fishing season, in early spring, through the fall hunting seasons. Tucannon is open for camping year around and is easily accessed by paved roads directly leading to the campground. Please call the Pomeroy Ranger District for current conditions. A fee of $8.00 per night with a $5.00 extra vehicle fee is charged from March 1 through October 31st each year. From November 1st through February there is no fee charged. Please Leave-No-Trace.
Very dry with little tree coverage. Loads of people and every campsite was full. Lakes are great for fishing with kiddos. Cannot ride dirtbikes or 4 wheelers in the campsite or on the road unless street legal. If you go up higher towards the horse corrals it isn't as dry and tends to be less crowded.
So, I should start by saying that we didn't end up camping here, as it's a first-come, first-serve camping site. It was about a two hour drive from Walla Walla, and we didn't get there in time to find an open camp site. We did drive around the entire camp site and walk around, and it was beautiful. Suitable for both RV and tent camping. I'd just like to warn potential campers that the GPS gave us the wrong directions and took us on this very backwoods road that was pretty much not a road and the side of a mountain. There is a real road going to this campsite!
