“Lots of Green on the River”

Reviewed Sep 20, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed in the Alpine Loop with 50 amp and water. Wonderful to have large shade trees because it was hot for Labor Day weekend. No satellite access but the shade was better.

Level asphalt sites around a large green area. Very quiet during the week but the weekend was full and busy. Tent campers spread out into the whole space with multiple tents and chairs and games and - geez everything! Lots of camp fires but quiet time was respected. Nice and dark at night.

Be sure to keep your dogs on a leash every second or you'll be threatened with expulsion! Our friends in one of the cabins got a visit from a ranger even though dogs were on their porch.

Lots of river access and a nice swimming beach. Paths for bikes and walking. Small but nice interpretive center.

Lewiston has all services and is a cute little college town. Nothing special. Eat at the Mystic Cafe - it's divine!

“Excellent early / late season camping experience”

Reviewed Jun 10, 2016

Overall Rating

Hell's Gate State Park is at a much lower elevation than most of the surrounding area to the north and east, and fall arrives later and spring earlier. We have stayed here for early season camping as not only is the weather usually much warmer than at home, but there are services readily available in both Lewiston and Clarkston if anything has been forgotten.

This is a jumping off point for jet boat tours of the Snake River Canyon, and if you are in the area, a trip up or down the old Spiral Highway is a reminder of the engineering prowess used when it was easier to use landforms to advantage when highway building, rather than blasting a path through the mountains.
