Snake River, Oregon Side Boondocking

After almost a month in Idaho, we finally made it to Oregon!  We’re at a free campsite, right beside a campground, Catfish Junction RV Park. There are three dispersed areas to camp off highway 201, the first is shortly after getting off highway 84. We decided to stop at the one nearest the campground since we wanted to spend a day driving up to Hell’s Canyon. We thought this might be a safer area. We also are going to have our mail sent to Weiser, the nearest town about 7 miles. We have 3GVerizon cell service with our booster and 7 TV channels; both of these are occasionally. Sometimes neither the internet nor the TV will work. We talked to a couple that was here the first night and they didn’t have any cell service, so I guess our booster must work.

There are two picnic tables and fire rings, a vault toilet, and a public boat launch. It’s not a large area, but could easily get 6-7 campers. Some days we had one other camper with us, some days by ourselves. There are trains on the other side of the Snake River, some days louder than others, but never woke me up at night. But then, we had our windows closed at night as the temperature was cool. Saturday and Sunday mornings there were goose hunters docking their boats. We’ve had two days of rain, otherwise its been perfect weather. Beautiful sunsets across the water.
