My son & I took a little weekend trip to get away from the triple-digit heat of the valley and were not disappointed.
We were not originally planning to stay here, but because our trip was last minute and we didn't feel like taking our chances not sure if something would be available without reservations, we thought we would take a chance.
The back-in sites were just the right size for our 26' motorhome, complete with solid picnic table and fire ring as well as flattened area for a tent if we had wanted. There is ample room between spaces so that, even if we had neighbors, we wouldn't be too close. I was surprised that there were only 2 other campers who showed that night, but I don't know that it is all that well known.
The accessible nature trail between the two campgrounds (Wetmore & Yellow Pine) was wide & well kept. The campground didn't seem to have had much attention lately, either by campers or by staff, but it was nonetheless in good order. The vault toilet was clean and not graffiti-ridden.

“Free camping, out of season. ”

Wetmore is one of three in a row on the north side of Highway 26, 12 miles west of Unity. We stayed one night on October 5. Just us and the stars. A little road noise from the few trucks that travel this light stretch at the edge of the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest.

Vault toilet hadn't been serviced since the CG closed on September 15, but it was still nice smelling and clean. Sites a little less than level but wider than normal and sited well.

Free is a great off-season price, and we felt more comfortable here since it was deer hunting season than if we had tried to boondocks further into the woods.
