About Jackson F. Kimball State Recreation Site

With its glass clear spring, quaking aspen, and a picture-perfect meadow surrounded by the Cascade Mountains, Jackson F. Kimball State Recreation Site is the ultimate place to clear your head. Kayak down from the headwaters of Wood River, stopping to picnic beneath the towering pines that dot the park. To catch the trout that call this river home, cast a line from a canoe or try your hand at fly fishing. Hike or trot via horseback down the 10-mile trail that leads from this rec area to the nearby Collier Memorial State Park. And Jackson F. Kimball Campground offers the ultimate in seclusion, with only 10 primitive campsites to choose from. For those seeking to “get away from it all,” a day or two at this park might be all you need.

We were eaten alive here, regardless of long pants and long sleeves. Bring bug spray! They bit us through our clothes. We rushed out of there after one night. 30+ bites between us! Otherwise, peaceful and beautiful location. Wish we could have explored more.
