Ollokot Campground is set along Hells Canyon Scenic Byway east of the Wallowa mountains.

The campground sits in an old growth ponderosa pine forest along the banks of the Imnaha River. With 13 basic sites containing a table and a fire pit, this is a quiet, seasonal campground is tucked into the forest. Sites are spread a fair distance apart, granting an amount of privacy between camps.

There is a hand pump that campers can pump water from. Warnings announce that the water is drinkable, however will contain a slight amount of brown color due to safe levels of iron and manganese. Ollokot is also the central campground for a few other satellite campgrounds that are even more remote, which contain signs telling campers to head to Ollokot for drinking water.

Campers can self-pay at the entrance kiosk. Reservations are not accepted - all sites operate strictly on a first come, first serve basis.

Ollokot Campground's season corresponds to Hells Canyon Scenic Byway's seasonal closure due to snow which tends to occur between late-October and mid-May or so each year.
