Dispersed camping is allowed throughout much of this region, and there are a handful of limited-service campgrounds.
Slocum Creek Campground, approximately 50 miles from Jordan Valley, Oregon
Pitch your tent here, amidst grassy hills and rocky spires, and you’ll be just a few miles away from the terrific hikes in Leslie Gulch. This free, no reservation campground has 12 established campsites for either RV or tent camping. All sites have picnic tables, and most have shade structures. Restrooms here are pit toilet, and you must bring all your own water. A nearby boat ramp provides access to the Owyhee Reservoir. Season: year round
Succor Creek State Natural Area, approximately 23 miles from Adrian, Oregon or 50 miles from Nampa, Idaho
Located in a deep, rocky canyon, Succor Creek State Natural Area is a terrific site for wildlife watchers, and it also allows limited souvenir collecting by rock hounds. Reach this primitive camping (23 sites) and day-use area by taking a rough 15 mile dirt road that leads from Oregon 201.
Prepare accordingly for this remote recreational experience. No water is available. There are no pay phones or cell phone services, and no staff or volunteers are stationed at this site. Season: year round
