“Great little park ”

Reviewed Jun 04, 2018

Overall Rating

First the downside. No hookups, bathrooms were pretty much pit toilets (clean but smells) and almost no cell. We had a great site at the end of the loop. The river was flowing right behind our trailer. We had no issue with our 30’ trailer and truck. Guessing about 47-50 foot max on sites. This campground is well taken c... more

Camped here Apr. 29. Someone said they thought is was closed due to high water but although the river was high the campground was open. I believe I read on their website that it opens on Apr. 18 (at least this year). This is a great little stopover spot. The traffic noise isn't too bad even though it's close to the highway, if you use ... more

“Great little stopover!”

Reviewed Oct 04, 2017

Overall Rating

If you need a quick inexpensive stopover along the way, this is the place for you. The sites were level and spacious, the restrooms were clean and stocked, and you can even take a nice walk along a fire access road on the other side of the river to stretch your legs. Although it is right along the highway, we weren't bothered by traffi... more

“Decent little campground right off I-84, only 10 minutes to La Grande”

Reviewed Jun 13, 2016

After a long drive east through the Columbia River Gorge, fighting high winds all the way, and a 3 hour "back roads short cut" south of Pilot Rock to Spring Creek on NFD 21 we were beat. Since we needed to stop in La Grande the next morning before continuing on to Joseph, we opted to camp at Hilgard Junction. A large family with 6 v... more

“Beautiful little place to stop-over for the night”

Reviewed Jun 20, 2015

Overall Rating

This is a great little stop-over spot on Hwy 84. It's close to the highway, so it gets consistent (day and night) noise but the setting is beautiful. Right by the river with lots of green and trees. Several campsites even have direct river views. Small campground, only 18 sites all back-in and no hookups. Good, level (paved) sites and ... more

“Small park, no hook ups, but in a beautiful location. ”

Reviewed Jan 07, 2015

Overall Rating

This park consists of one short road with rv spots on both sides (18 total). No hook ups, but backs up on a small river. The spots are well spaced and it's really quiet. There's firewood for sale as well. Our best memory of the park was the camp host - he was super nice and really tried to make everyone's stay great.
