Spring Recreation Site

Overview:

The Spring Recreation Site, or Spring Rec for short, is a camping and fishing location off the beaten path away from the crowds. Spring Rec sits on the banks of Browlee 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. The RV and tent camping sites, boat launch, boarding dock, and fish cleaning station all create a comfortable camping and fishing experience. Spring Rec is ideal for the angler, those who love the outdoors, or for those just looking for a scenic getaway.

Know Before You Go:

  • All vehicles must display a stub from the fee envelope in their windshield.
  • Drinking water is available.
  • There are no RV hookups.
  • Dumpsters are provided.
  • Portable toilets are available throughout the site.

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.
