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.

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.Undo

$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.

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.Undo

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.Undo

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.Undo

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.Undo

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.Undo

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.Undo

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.Undo

This is a nice campground with access to the river. Restrooms and showers were okay, but there are a lot of kids in the park this weekend. RV spots are very nicely spaced apart and big. We have stayed here before and use this as a park to stop on our way home from a long day's drive. Highly recommend if you are planning to simply relax and enjoy the outdoors. No city or businesses to get supplies. We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Another great Oregon state park. Sites are spacious, shaded with both back-ins and pull throughs - all large enough for big rigs. We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.Undo

We stayed here for a night. The park is easy to get to and from I-84. The park was quiet; there weren't a lot of campers since it was the off season. The interior roads and sites are paved. The road in the main loop is narrow due to bushes encroaching. The majority of the pull through sites are on the inside of the main loop. There were two located along the closed loop. There are only a few that are level (74, 77, 55, 120, & 80). The back in sites are on the outside of the main loop. They would be difficult to get into and out of due the angle and narrow road. Sites only have water & electricity (50A), no sewer hook ups. They all had a campfire ring and outside table. Not much privacy between the sites. The main loop is shaded with trees everywhere. The trees encroach on the road and sites. Opening slides could be difficult. Some sites (previously identified) offer a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception. Verizon internet was weak and it was really slow. There is a fenced pet area. It was a grass area located down in the day use area at the other end of the park from the campground. It had containers for waste disposal. The geese had adopted the area. There were paths along the river for walking the dogs. We didn't use the showers or laundry room. The park is satisfactory for a short stay while traveling along I-84 but we recommend only those sites previously identified. We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.Undo

Great value in late March at 17.00 per night. Very scenic. Convenient to the interstate but removed enough from it to avoid the road noise. Would stay again. We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.Undo
