Huntington, OR 97907

Historic Farewell Bend State Recreation Area is located on the Oregon/Idaho border northwest of Ontario, exit 353 off I-84.  We offer a beautiful desert experience on the banks of the Snake River's Brownlee Reservoir.  Historic markers and interpretive displays provide visitors with information on Farewell Bend's significance on the Oregon Trail. The RV and tent campgrounds make excellent base camps as you explore the region.

 Brownlee Reservoir offers fishing, water skiing and boating. Check current water levels at the Idaho Powerwebsite. There are horseshoe pits, basketball hoops and a sand volleyball court for you to enjoy. Best of all, while resting from the day's activities, you can enjoy the scenery and amenities. Picnic on the cool grass, roast marshmallows over your campfire.  If you are lucky, you'll see wildlife like deer, pronghorn, geese, eagles, chukars, and Quail.   Evening interpretive programs are presented from Memorial Day through Labor Day.  See events for dates and times.
