This park is much improved since last postings. There is no longer a store. Bring it with you. Park is well taken care of by rangers. In season there is a camp host. We've seen some pretty large RVs there, but the road in is quite a ride. It is paved all the way, but there is a steep grade up to the dam and some pretty sharp turns. Also, one must keep an eye out for rocks on the road. Park is nice grass, lots of shade, paved sites with picnic table and fire pit. Some sites can now be reserved. We camped at Lake Owyhee State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was a disappointing campground. The road in is treacherous. I was following my hubby who was driving a 37' MH. The road has two switchbacks that caused the back tires on the right to go OFF the road! Otherwise the road is narrow and curvy. It's not a road a large wide MH should be on. We called them before traveling and they said it would be no problem. They are WRONG! We stayed at the Indian Creek Campground. Dogs were allowed to run free. Children were not respectful of other's campsites nor property. Children that were underaged and not wearing helmets were riding 4 wheelers around the campground: on lawns, etc., and spewed dirt and gravel onto our pickup and boat. The store was not open during the hours they stated. The sign said "back in 5 minutes," was gone 1/2 hour. There were no garbage cans for us to use and only one bathroom that was hoarded by day users. This state campground is contracted out for the care and upkeep. For a state campground it is one of the worst we've been in. We will NOT be going back. We camped at Lake Owyhee State Park in a Motorhome.

This State Park is on Lake Owyhee, a man-made lake, about 33 miles southwest of Nyssa in Eastern Oregon. The drive from Nyssa to the park is along the Owyhee River which runs through a beautiful canyon and offers many opportunities for wildlife viewing and fishing. The campsites, for the most part, sit on a high shelf above the lake and offer great views of the lake and the surrounding rocky cliffs. Gorgeous sunset views! We stayed at McCormack Campground, but there is also another campground at Indian Creek which we didn't get a chance to see, but which I think only has primitive camp sites. The campground has nice tent sites too and 2 tepees which can be rented. There is a boat ramp for avid anglers. The park was uncrowded and there were lots of wildflowers and many species of birds to see when we were there in mid-May. The road to the park is paved all the way, but is narrow in places with steep drop-offs. There was one big Class A motorhome in the park, but most folks were in campers, smaller 5th wheels or Class C's. We camped at Lake Owyhee State Park in a Motorhome.
