Nice shady campground on the Snake River (one of four owned and managed by Idaho Power Co.) located on Hwy 86, 1/4 mile North of Hwy 71 (GPS Coordinates: N44.97421 W116.85800) near the entry of Hells Canyon at an elevation of 1738'. It is a first come first serve campground, located 70 miles NE of Baker City. The closest grocery store, as well as diesel fuel stop is in Halfway, OR 17 miles away. Our Verizon worked reasonably well, but there is a pay phone available on site if needed. We would have ranked this campground higher, but due to parking bumpers placed everywhere to protect the grass, it made it extremely difficult to maneuver our rig in and out of the campground /site. We would return, but would call first to check availability (541-785-7209). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
My Wife, our dog, and I loved this park! It is quiet, clean, and well maintained. We stayed at Copperfield Park for two nights and since we are "early risers" we enjoyed the herds of deer roaming through the park. Sites are spacious, level, organized, and most have shade at some point during the day. We were able to receive several Boise TV stations with our roof antenna. Since it is an easy drive from our home we will return often for weekend get-aways. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Outstanding value for an immaculate well manicured oasis in Hell's Canyon. Bordered by the Snake River and Pine Creek. Owned and operated by Idaho Power Company. Spotless showers and restrooms. Groomed lawns and flowers. Gateway to Hell's Canyon Recreation Area and Idaho's Seven Devil's mountains. Great fishing in the park. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
