Stayed at Minam State Rec Area as an overnight on my way to Wallowa State Park. It's a really nice, remote campground that appears to be primarily used by rafters. The 2-mile road going in was a well maintained dirt road, with just a few bumps that even my very low profile trailer was able to navigate. Some have mentioned concern for n... more

We arrived on a Wednesday afternoon and though the campground was busier that we expected, we didn't have any problems finding a spot. There are plenty of trees and a great view of a steep canyon face. All the sites are set up in a loop, and the first few (which have a river view) are tent only. We stayed in the very last RV spot in th... more

I observed everything from tents to Motorhomes at this park so pretty much anyone can get here. It is about 2 miles down a gravel/dirt road that was in good shape although narrow in some places.

“Super quiet, right by the Wallowa River. ”

If you're looking for a lesser known, classic camping experience with access to water and hiking, consider checking out Minam. It's just two miles to the north off Hwy 82, at Minam, in a steep canyon along the Wallowa River. Minam is halfway between the tiny towns of Elgin and Wallowa. Tall Ponderosas provide some shade along the ... more
