Clyde Holliday State Recreation Site sits in a peaceful wooded location on the banks of the John Day River near Mount Vernon, Oregon. It offers a pet-friendly campground and the opportunity to indulge in a host of outdoor activities, making it well worth a visit for dog lovers and their canine companions.
Surrounded by tall cottonwood trees, the park is well shaded and sheltered from the rest of the world. With the scenic river nearby and some of Oregon's most unspoiled wilderness areas all around, it's a beautiful location to spend a day or three.
Due to its remoteness, the park is relatively quiet for most of the year. This is great for anyone looking for some tranquility and solitude, and also means you've got a good chance of encountering some native wildlife. From steelhead swimming upriver to wandering mountain elk and mule deer, this park can help you get up close and personal with the best that wild Oregon has to offer.
Just like the rest of the park, the Clyde Holliday State Recreation Site campground sits in a shaded and peaceful location that feels miles from anywhere. It's a pet-friendly campground that features 31 electrical sites with water and two reservable tepees (one tepee is pet-friendly).
A $5 daily parking fee applies and camping fees vary depending on the type of site you select. For example, while an electrical site costs $26 a night, tepees are $46 per night. It's also worth pointing out that there's a $10 per night fee to stay in a pet-friendly tepee and a two-pet maximum applies.
As always, it's up to you to be a responsible dog owner and clean up after your pet at all times. You'll also need to keep your pet leashed and under control for the duration of your stay.
If you can handle these simple but important duties, there's nothing to stop you and your furry friend enjoying a relaxing getaway in this beautiful area.
