It was ok, not the best Oregon State Park we have been to, looked like it had seen better days and many empty spots. We took a back in with a nice view of the Snake river and distant view of the interstate. Too hot and windy to sit outside. I walked down to the Iron Ranger and dropped off our Payment. We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Camping with roomy, level spots with excellent views of the water! Nice grassy area in each spot, fire pit and table. Nice large camping areas, full hookups too! Camp hosts and park staff were great and even helped us to jump start our tow car.
Fantastic and large fenced pet area. Lots of wildlife too!
We camped here in a 36ft MH and would definitely return! We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Stayed in the lower loop, Catfish Loop/B. First day was exciting as Cycle Oregon was using Farewell Bend as a staging area for 2,200 bicyclists. The Park staff handled that extremely well. Sites are generally level with fair to good separation. Nearly all are back in (two pull throughs) with water and 30 amp electric. Dump station is available when exiting. We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Farewell Bend is at the point where the immigrants left the Snake River and began the trek to the Blue Mountains and Oregon City. Nearby, out of Baker City, is the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center which is well worth your time. Also a drive into Huntington, OR and then down some of Hells Canyon can be enjoyable. Finally a stroll down to the Snake from the CG will put you in the midst of some great rock hounding.

We stayed for 4 days at the Huntington Farewell Bend State Park in our 40' RV. There was no check in due to our having reservations and our name was on the camp post at our spot. No one ever questioned out being there. Our space 115 had a nice view of the Snake River and our area was quite. Our hook ups were located in the right location and they were in working order. Our Verizon Hot Spot worked surprisingly great for not having a town close by. There are trees so we had to adjust to the right parking to get it to work. The space was level and we had a fire ring and picnic table. We enjoyed the fires at night and we had a treat by having our neighbor playing campfire songs that reminded me of my father playing guitar around the fire. There are a few hiking trails and the one we enjoyed the most was along the river where cows roamed free. This was part of the Oregon trail so being away from civilization on the trail with the cattle made it easy to look towards the pioneers past. We would stay again at Huntington Farewell Bend State Park if we were back this way again. We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Not a lot to do here but, hike and enjoy the stars. If you have a boat then your in for some great fishing. Fishing near the camp is limited so that was a bust when someone is already there.

A beautiful park that is well maintained. Open all year, though only one loop remains open during the winter (starting November). We stayed for two nights on our way to Seattle. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Farewell Bend is a lovely setting along the Snake River. Unfortunately, the water level was very low and there was only muddy shoreline access. We had a water/electric site with excellent privacy (#49). There are shrub screens between sites in the Brownlee loop. The other loop is very open. This park is ideal for boaters. There is a very good ramp and parking for boat trailers. But, not much else to do. The nearby town of Huntington really has nothing to offer for travelers. There is a good kids playground which my daughter enjoyed. The park staff was busy and left us alone. We didn't need anything. Our neighbors were quiet. We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Tent Trailer.

Unfortunately, the river is very, very low which makes the views less than desirable. However, you can't beat the price for full hookups. Was very quiet - no tv, no cell phone reception. A nice respite. And there are many more pull-thru sites since I was here last. We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

$24 per night was for a level asphalt pad site with 50 amp electric, water, picnic table, and fire ring. The campground is in a desert-like setting but has been planted with deciduous trees and six-foot high hedges surround each site in the Brownlee loop, which greatly increases privacy on the generous sites. This lovely campground is located near the bend in the Snake River where Oregon Trail travelers bid farewell to the river as they continued their trek westward. Hiker/biker and tent camping are available as are cabins. Bicycles are permitted on park roads. The campground is located near I-84 but there was no traffic noise in the Brownlee loop. The town of Huntington is four miles away and has a couple grocery stores. AT&T cell service is non-existent. We used our Millenicom Jetpack for Internet access, as it was sporadically getting one bar of 4G LTE but more often three bars 3G. There were five OTA TV stations—four PBS and ABC. We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Rate includes online reservation fee. As others have said, lots of grass, close to the historic Snake River, easy access to/from I-84, but very quiet. The B loop has mature hedges between most of the sites, which provides some modicum of privacy, but not a lot. We could get no antenna TV, our satellite would not connect, Verizon phone had frequent dropouts, Internet via our Verizon hotspot worked but was very slow. I wouldn't call this a "destination" resort but rather a nice place for overnight or so. We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Camping among nice tall trees and grassy area. Sights are on or close to the river. Close to the expressway but quiet. A family park. Easy to maneuver in and out. Lots of play areas. No internet and fair phone reception. In the area we camped in (Antelope loop) there were only two potties and two showers for 40 campsites. This is why I only rate them an 8. Looks like good fishing and do have fish cleaning area. They do recycle. We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Winter rate in October, so it was really great, only about 6 sites in use. Very pretty, clean, quiet HOWEVER - part of the park closes at the end of October. No amenities near by, 25 miles for gas. We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

We have a 40' motorhome and stayed in the Catfish Loop. The Brownlee Loop has more trees and 10' hedges along the sites giving some privacy but for a big rig we would recommended the more open, Catfish Loop. We only had 30A and it was 90 degrees so 50A would have been better for our two air conditioners. We had good Verizon phone and internet. The river/reservoir was very low at this time of year. There is a dump station and boat ramp. The park is one mile from the interstate making it a good overnight stop. However, other than fishing there isn't much else to do in the park or the area.

Nice park; camp hosts were very friendly. Does not have sewer connection but has an easy to access dump site. Plenty of grass and an enclosed off-leash dog run. Sites were easy to access; the lower sites on the river was closed due to time of year when we were there. Only downside was lots of stickers to get stuck in dogs fur, but nature is nature. Didn't try to access satellite TV, so no idea if that's available. Rate is for disabled vets; if you are a disabled Vet, Oregon's state Parks have a great FREE program for in or out of state veterans We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

We've stayed here several times on our way through this part of Oregon. This is a large park with several campground loops, each with its own character. We like to stay in the loop that is closest to the river because so many of its sites have great views across the river to the hills on the other side. It can be quite windy in this loop though because it is more open than the other loops. This is an historically interesting park because it is situated on the spot where the early pioneers on the Oregon Trail left the Snake River and thus it became known as Farewell Bend. We would stay here again for sure. We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

A very nice campground with a nice layout for all types of recreational vehicles. Level, paved roads and sites with picnic table; I'm not a big fan of bugs and there were many, as the Park is located near a reservoir. I've stayed at a couple of Oregon State Parks and I feel the state does a good job at maintaining them. We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.
