Wallowa is a good spot for a base camp. You can head to Hells Canyon via Imnaha, great views, and lookout tower (open??). Also head into Nat Forest from Joseph on the Hells Canyon Scenic Loop down to the Snake at Copperfield. Nice drive, NF campgrounds along the way if you want to move around.


Is that drive down to the river doable with a 27' trailer?

Yes, it is a good 2 lane paved road mostly, last time down(2 yrs ago), there was a bit of construction in the first few miles. There are twists and turns, not too bad, no terrible climbs or descents. Only thing to be watched is that the road is popular with motorcyclists and some spandex mafia (bikers!!) so you need to be aware esp on curves. Had no problems with a 34' trailer.

Hells Gate SP is great - but be aware, many Idaho state parks stop taking reservations after Labor Day & sites become first-come first-served only. If you get there between 11 AM-1 PM you may have the best chance of getting a site. Good luck!

One of the YouTube crowd just released a video on that. They did several other eastern OR vids as well.

Woodhead Park is a good campground, and should be mostly empty this time of year. Sites have water and electricity.

The facility is owned and operated by Idaho Power, so you can look for info through their web site.
