Cache Creek Ranch

Cache Creek Ranch

Cache Creek Ranch is an administrative site located at the northern-most portal on the Snake River within the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area. Historically part of the Dobbin and Huffman Sheep Co. that flourished until the 1930s, it now serves as a shaded oasis for river travelers in the scenic portion of the Snake River.

As a main stopping point for river visitors, the ranch is staffed year-round by a facility host. Visitor information and exhibits are available inside the house interpreting unique aspects of the canyon's natural and cultural history. River permits for powerboaters can be obtained from the host.  The expansive shady lawns and fruit orchard at Cache Creek attract both wildlife and people during the summer months with public restrooms open year-round.
