“Great overnight spot while travelling Highway 139”

Reviewed Oct 13, 2017

Overall Rating

We stopped here for one night on our way north to Oregon. We used our Golden Age Pass so only paid $6 for our site. All the sites are back-in; sites 2 and 7 are long enough for big rigs. There is no potable water here. The pit toilets were clean. You need a permit to have a campfire. There was minimal road noise. It is a beautiful spot and the temperature overnight was in the low 20's.

“Excellent overnight”

Reviewed May 13, 2016

Overall Rating

I stopped at Howards Gulch for just a one night layover. – and its free. All the sites are in a lovely wooded setting and well spaced. Each site has a picnic table, fire ring and BBQ. There is no dump, but there is potable water, and toilets. My site was not exactly level, but good enough. There are only eleven sites and I think just one back-in. Access is easy – right off OR 139 on a paved road. Virtually no traffic noise. No ATT service.

I’m rating the campground four stars overall, but for one night it was truly pleasant.
