From the Umatilla word meaning “water rippling over sand”, you’ll find much much more of that lovely imagery here among 1.4 million acres of outdoor wonderland. Sharing part of its territory between Oregon and Washington, the forest includes over 190,000 acres of old-growth forest excellent for camping, hiking, hunting, fishing, skiing and rafting. Oh and did we mention the wildlife viewing?! Wowza. There are rocky mountain elk, bighorn sheep, Shira’s moose, mountain goat, whitetail deer, grey wolf, cougar, coyote, badger, turkey, grouse, chinook and coho salmon and many varieties of trout such as rainbow and steelhead. With so much going on, it can be a bit overwheleming, so make sure to check out National Forest Website or give a quick call to the ranger’s station at (541) 278-3716 before leaving for your wilderness excursion.To avoid unwanted surprises due to weather and other factors, it might also be helpful to look into any campground or road closures. For additional information on navigation, check out the park maps. Lastly, make sure to come prepared with all necessary passes and permits!
