I know our ability to visit the indoor sites (visitors centers, etc.) will depend on relaxation of covid restrictions (and me getting the vaccine!). I see right now, many sites are not open.

Thanks again for the suggestions!

We were there last fall.
+1 Oregon Trail museum, and was open during pandemic!
+2 Travel Oregon website, it's all there!
Bookmark tripcheck.com the OR DOT website.
Gas is infrequent, plan ahead.

Smith Rocks are cool, with paved trails. Watch the rock climbers and cliff birds from a safe place.
Pendleton is nice if things are open. The casino RV park is good. Their cultural center is supposed to be good but was closed last summer.
John Day NM visitor centers are closed.

I'm sensing a theme...

We have also stayed at Boardman Marina RV Park and it is a great spot, right on the Columbia River. If you go across the bridge to Washington, the Columbia Crest Winery is right there.

Not really planning to go north of La Grande on I-84 this time, but thanks for the suggestions. We've been across the Columbia River a few times in past years. But timing and miles just didn't enable us to stop in Pendleton or at Boardman RV Park. I certainly will keep those on my list for the future.

After Painted Hills area, we'll be going west on 26/126/20 to Newport. So I'll keep the Smith Rock State Park on my radar. Thanks!

Another vote for Boardman Marina. There is also Ordnance Brewery in Boardman. Understand another one has opened. A bit of a drive, probably an hour west is Maryhill Winery just northwest of Biggs Junction but on the Washington side. Also Peach Beach RV Park. Just above Peach Beach is a WW1 tribute to a large number of casualties from the county constructed as a replica of Stonehenge. Sorry cannot remember the name.

There was (is?) a city park with about 5 spaces of RV parking in Mitchell, OR not to far from Painted Hills. Had 30 amp electric and two water risers. Don't see it listed now. Was there in 2016. Clyde Holliday St Park might be your best bet but about 70 miles to Painted Hills. Last year I checked out a few others in the general area that sounded good but plans changed.

Wallowa St Park is really nice. No cell reception in the park as of 2016. We stayed at Wallowa River RV Park, a small mom and pop operation. Nice guy, laid back. River on on side of property if you like to drown worms. Shorter drive through sites.

Sisters Creekside in Sisters, OR nice park. Kinda close quarters but nice. Walking distance into town and restaurants. Tumalo St Park is another one near by.

Mtn. View RV in Baker, OR is a nice place. Well maintained, friendly staff.

Decent fuel stop in Redmond is a Fred Meyer Fuel. Good in/out.

I thought I saw that the Oregon Trail Interpretative Center was closed this year for repairs so you might check the website.

EDIT: Looks like the city park in Mitchell is open. https://www.mitchelloregon.us/stay
