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 experience on the banks of the Snake River's Brownlee Reservoir.  Historic markers and interpretive displays provide visitors with information on the Farewell Bend's significance on the Oregon Trail.   The RV and tent campgrounds make excellent base camps as you expore the region.  Brownlee Resevoir offers fishing and boating.  We still have a few Camp host spots to fill for the month of July 2020.

Camp Host duties include:  prepare campsites for incoming campers and clean sites after campers leave; picking up litter, cleaning out fire rings and reporting other campsite needs to a Park Ranger.  Hosts will perform, daily, general restroom checks, stocking paper products and pick up litter.  Our Catfish loop also has two cabins whcih camp hosts will clean.    Hosts are responsible for a small change fund and will facilitate change for firewood and ice sales.  Camp hosts may perform other duties as assigned/or desired.    Cell phone reception is spotty and there is no WiFi at this location.
