Historic Farewell Bend State Recreation Area, located on the Oregon/Idaho border north of Ontario, offers a beautiful desert experience on the banks of the Snake River?s Brownlee Reservoir. Pioneers on the Oregon Trail took a final rest here before leaving the Snake River to travel wearily inland on their way to Oregon City. Historic markers and interpretive displays provide visitors with information on Farewell Bend's significance on the Oregon Trail. The RV and tent campgrounds make excellent basecamps as you explore the region. Oregon Trail wagon ruts are visible just up the road. The National Oregon Trail Interpretive Center is less than an hour away in Baker City.

If history isn't your game, come for the sports! Brownlee Reservoir offers fishing, water skiing, swimming and boating. There are horseshoe pits, basketball hoops and a sand volleyball court for you land lovers. Best of all, while resting from the day's activities, you can enjoy the scenery and amenities. Picnic on the cool grass, spend the night in an authentic covered wagon or Native American tepee, roast marshmallows over your campfire or attend an evening interpretive program at the amphitheater. Whatever you like to do, Farewell Bend is the place to do it.

December 3 If you love Eastern Oregon . . . by Djarum Fry
If you love Eastern oregon, this is relaxing and beautiful -- but watch out for mosquitoes in summer, and bring bug spray before you leave the last nearby decent-size town!
September 2 Great first-time camping experience by KJ from Vancouver, WA
Clean cabin, well maintained park. High winds two of the three nights I visited. Campfires may not be possible if this is normal weather. Would definitely visit again.
