There are no more diverse areas of Oregon than Northeastern Oregon. Bordered in the north by the Columbia River and Washington State, the Snake River forms the eastern boarder, bracketing this corner of Oregon with the 2 largest rivers in the Pacific Northwest. The terrain ranges from the highest point in the area - Sacajawea Peak reaches 9838 feet (2999 meters) - to the rolling desert areas which average 500 feet (152 meters) in elevation.
The rolling plains are home to ranches that are measured in the thousands of acres. These ranches typically produce cattle, wheat, alfalfa, potatoes, onions and asparagus.
The Blue Mountain range offers an abundance of outdoor recreation opportunities. Skiing, hiking, off road motorized vehicle trails, hunting, fishing and, of course, camping are but a few of the activities in which you can participate.
The biggest tourism draw to Northeast Oregon are the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area on the Snake River, the Eagle Cap Wilderness area, the Snake Wild and Scenic River and the John Day Wild and Scenic Area. Incidentally, the John Day River is the largest free flowing body of water in the State of Oregon.
Northeastern Oregon is home to real cowboys and native American Indians. The annual Pendleton Round-up is one of the largest rodeos in America. This week-long celebration of the western way of life is worth the trip every year - and the rodeo offers tent camping as well as RV camping.
Pack up your camping equipment and plan to spend a lot of time in northeast Oregon. There is a lifetime of activities for everyone!

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds. The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site. Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide. Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do allow RV camping but not tent camping. If in doubt, call the campground first.
The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners. In this way we ensure that every description in this free guide is unbiased. Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tent camping and all types of RV camping. While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.
Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions. New campgrounds are added weekly.
