I would like to add Hells Canyon to our "Places to TD Camp in 2016, as we have not explored that corner of Oregon yet.Loren wrote:how about the idaho power sites in hells canyon- hot showers! electricity for the electric blankets- i'd even bring extra extension cords for the trailers without AC

That sounds great. There is a place in Joseph you can ride the rails on a pedal car . We have been meaning to get out there and check it out.
We were going to try last year but the campgrounds were full and it was a really bad fire season. This is still on our list of places to go.

Anyway, hoping you do this again next year, as we'll be more likely to be able to attend, then! See you at the IRG, my Friend!

As of last fall, it was paved but with lots of potholes- all outlined in pink paint tho- easier to see that way I guess. There have been "road closed- construction" signs up for a couple of years but I've never seen anyone working on it. That is a cattle drive road so go slow on corners and expect some pre-digested grass stains on the front of the trailer. A really pretty drive, all forest and twisty roads. There are several campgrounds on the way but only one had water until you get to Hells Canyon. There is a nice quilt/antique shop in Halfway that has cast-iron stuff. Watch out for rocks! The road is in a slide area and last weekend I failed to clear a 9" rock in my Mazda 3- cost me $3300 to get it fixed.- In short, good road if driven carefully.
