Little Goose Landing

Situated above the Little Goose Dam, Little Goose Landing provides access for multiple recreation opportunities, including fishing, water sports, camping, or just a quiet place to picnic along the Snake River.

Lyons Ferry State Park commemorates many historical features of the area in addition to…

Fishhook Park

A short drive from town to a picturesque setting on the Snake River, Fishhook Park has so many activities to offer--camping, fishing, birding, kayaking, paddleboarding, a swim beach, and a few play structures for the kids. A number of campsites have water access, and the ones that don’t are up the bank just a bit further than their shoreline neighbors and take advantage of the view. Given its proximity to Walla Walla, folks can easily…

As one of Oregon’s 7 Wonders, the Wallowa Mountains, a glacier-carved lake, and geologically fascinating moraines make this area a must visit. This part of the world is simply magical. Spend the entire weekend at the park or stay longer and venture further to Hells Canyon or enjoy Joseph, Oregon and the absolute breathtaking view of the mountains while visiting all the local shops and eateries. This place is just pure fun!
