Located along the banks of the Grande Ronde River in northeast Oregon, the Red Bridge State Wayside is a peaceful retreat from the busy city life. This beautiful state park campground is nestled in the rugged Blue Mountains, offering plenty of outdoor activities for nature lovers.

A Scenic Campground with Various Options

The campground itself has 10 basic walk-in sites and 10 sites that can accommodate self-contained RVs. Here, campers can relax under the shade of tall ponderosa pines while listening to the calming sounds of the river. The sites are well-spaced, providing privacy and a sense of seclusion. Although amenities are limited, vault toilets and drinking water are available for campers' convenience.

Abundance of Outdoor Recreation Opportunities

Aside from camping, there are plenty of things to do at the Red Bridge State Wayside during the day. Visitors can:

  • Hike along the picturesque banks of the Grande Ronde River
  • Try their luck at fishing for trout and steelhead
  • Simply enjoy the breathtaking natural scenery

For those looking for more options, the nearby town of La Grande offers additional opportunities for dining, shopping, and exploring the area's rich history and culture.

Convenient Access to Travelers

Despite its secluded location, the campground is easily accessible. It is located just off Oregon Highway 244 and approximately 15 minutes away from Interstate 84, making it a convenient stop for travelers exploring the eastern part of the state.
