“All but abandoned--- loads of better dispersed sites nearby”

Reviewed Jun 07, 2016

Overall Rating

We decided to check out some remote NFS campgrounds off of NFR46, 45 miles northeast of Joseph. This one is super remote and nestled into a tight valley choked with trees and brush along the Chesnimnus Creek (this is open range cow country, so don't drink the water). It's so overgrown that you'd have to wade through waist-high weeds to find the very old outhouse. Roads are very poorly marked out here and there's no cell phone reception at all.

There are dozens of great just-off-the-road dispersed sites and hunting camps (look for the meat poles suspended from the Ponderosas). Any of these would be a better choice!

That being said, perhaps the crew that services campgrounds up here in the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest hasn't gotten to this one yet. Buckhorn CG was in really rough condition too, and it's likely that Coyote and Dougherty are in similar condition. We were there the first week in June, 2016.
