Spring Recreation Site

Spring Recreation Site


Welcome to Spring Recreation Site (affectionately called Spring Rec), a camping and fishing location off the beaten path away from the crowds. Spring Rec is located on Brownlee Reservoir, a 52-mile long reservoir on the Snake River. The reservoir is known for its large channel catfish, abundant crappie, and good bass fishing. RV and tent camping site, a boat launch and boarding dock, and a fish cleaning station provide a comfortable fishing and camping experience. Families and groups are attracted to the large sites and easy access to the water.

Know Before You Go:


Accessible campsite available

Camping is on a first-come, first-served basis

Drinking water is available, but there are no RV hookups

Point of Interest:

Brownlee Reservoir is generally full in the spring, but a drawdown begins in summer and may result in closure of the boat ramp at lower levels. Call the Baker BLM office at 541-523-1256 for current ramp conditions.
