“Iconic rustic campground: towering Ponderosas and the Imnaha River. What's not to love? ”
Reviewed Jun 11, 2016
When we arrived at Ollokot, we weren't quite ready to call it for the day. If we were, THIS is where we would have stayed. It's a stunner: right by the Imnaha River, shaded by towering giant trees, both cool and sunny at the same time, especially on this weird 100 degree day in early June. Crazy!
Park personnel were busy flushing the water hydrant at Ollokot when were there. Downed trees had been freshly cleaned up and each site was tidy and ready for campers. Each site is extremely large and spaced wide apart.
I loved how Ollokot struck a perfect balance between sun and shade--- look at the pictures to see what I mean. I've read a camp host's blog from the previous season and believe that this site is hosted most of the summer, providing service to the neighboring campgrounds in the same administrative area.
There's no cell reception this deep in the valley, but just drive 7 miles further to the captivating Hells Canyon Overlook to get email, deal with client demands, check your Facebooks and IG feed. Then head back to paradise!!!
Note: the official Ollokot Campground sign had fallen down/go boom over the winter, so hopefully it's been set upright again. Keep your eyes open for it if it's not!
