Adventure Description

Adventure Description

A year after Wheeler County, Oregon was officially formed in 1900, John and Mary Spray established a post office on the banks of the John Day River. Over a century later, Spray's settlement is barely even a town, boasting just a few general stores and a gas station. But therein lies Spray's charm: the escape from development.

This little town of fewer than 200 residents hosts a quaint and surprisingly full-service community park, however. No doubt the park's main attraction is its access to the John Day River, whether for floating, fishing, or taking a swim on a hot, dry summer day. The park also features restrooms, a large picnic shelter, and six first-come, first-served walk-in tent campsites. The campsites are $12 per night, and a $5 fee is charged for boat launches.
