This place is a gem of a spot to quietly get away when you love small and quaint. You can four wheel, bike, hike and enjoy nature. A few steps away you can grab ice, cold drinks and order something yummy at the Oregon Trail Store. Don't forget to bring marshmallows and firewood for a campfire under the big sky of stars! I look forward to meeting you there!

Campground was clean and the bathroom was clean as well. Dave is really nice. The Mapquest will take you passing the campground. If you face the store, the campground is just left from it. It is really more for campers; they do have a nice grass area for tents. It is next to the road, but there are almost no cars. It has “Twins Peaks” feeling; it was fun.

On a now-remote stretch of the historic old road that runs alongside the highway, this sweet perch is full of character. The host, who also runs the little restaurant next to the campsite, is generous and kind. Community members and outsiders alike are welcomed in for pie and other homemade treats.

Freight trains run nearby, so do be prepared for late-night and early-morning noise. There are also a few vintage snow-mobiles and an ancient Oregon-Trail wooden wagon and, so it’s a transportation buff’s delight.

We stayed only one night here because we were just passing through, but the site was mowed and Dave was very friendly, personable, and hospitable! It was handy having the cafe right next door also, so I was able to buy a morning coffee before heading back on the road.

It’s worth mentioning that a train runs right by the site and blasts its whistle at about 3 am. At least that was our experience. We live in front of a train line at our place so not terribly shocking to us but might pull ya out of a deep sleep in a hurry if you’re not prepared. Overall still a very positive experience, especially for the price.

Dave is so nice and helpful! The place is secluded and lovely, and if you’re driving Dave is the best guide for scenic routes in the area. Love this spot!

The site is convenient and it’s right off the freeway. I’m not familiar with the area and I didn’t know that it gets really cold at night even in summertime. But the host came down to bring firewood. I had some that I brought cause we came late and the store was going to be closed. The firewood he brought burned amazingly hot! We stayed about 4 hrs and put on all our warm clothes but just didn’t pack for those Cold temps. So after we had dinner we packed up and drove to Pendleton nearby and it was warmer there. Just a note bring your winter sleeping bags if you are tent camping here. The spigot at the camp site wasn’t working so we used a hose from the store to wash our dishes. The people here are very nice and accommodating, You probably should get to camp early and have a hot meal from the store rather than cook as I didn’t see a picnic table nearby so I set up my stove in the back of my car and we sat in our camp chairs to eat. Also if you are a light sleeper the train passes nearby, something to consider. I would say stop here to take an afternoon nap and stay for dinner then get back on the road if you don’t have cold weather gear.
