Dalles is to tent camping what Rock Creek is to fly-fishing—paradise. Set along the creek between steep cliffs, with views of the Sapphire Mountains, this campground may be small, but its location and access to world-class fishing and wilderness areas make it worth the trip. And the trip to Dalles isn’t easy; you’ll travel down a narrow, rough access road complete with hairpin turns and one-lane sections alongside sheer drop-offs. July and August are prime time here, since the somewhat marshy conditions caused by spring snowmelt dry up and the mosquitoes move on.
