Cottonwood Canyon State Park

Differing from the wooded mountains of many Oregon state parks, Cottonwood Canyon is an 8,000-acre view into Eastern Oregon’s grasslands. The lower John Day River winds through the park, where wildlife viewing is abundant. Opened in September, the park is set up to be a hub for rafting, fishing, mountain biking, horse treks and backpacking. Day-use and camping facilities will be completed by December.
