Wallowa Lake State Park welcomes beginning and out-of-practice campers to join in an overnight guided camping excursion July 31-Aug. 2, part of the statewide “Let’s Go Camping” program hosted by Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD).
For $30 per family, OPRD provides tents, sleeping bags and other gear. Volunteers will help campers set up tents, build campfires, prepare meals in the campsite and more.
Activities will include a ranger-led hike, swimming in a scenic lake, and plenty of s’mores. Let’s Go Camping programs are at campgrounds throughout the state through Labor Day weekend. Participating campgrounds are listed at oregonstateparks.org (Click on “Things to Do”). Register online or by calling 888-953-7677.
