Wallowa River/Grande Ronde River: Minam to Troy Professional Review and Guide
"This is the popular wilderness run of the Wallowa–Grande Ronde. Boaters may spend two or three nights camping on the river. This section is a designated Wild and Scenic River and is administered jointly by the BLM, Oregon State Parks and Recreation Department, and U.S. Forest Service. The BLM patrols the river from Minam to the Snake. A self-issue permit station is located at Minam. Campsites are pleasant and abundant, except on Memorial Day and Fourth of July weekends when hundreds of boaters appear. This description is dedicated to Tuk-eka-kas and Hin-mah-too-yah-lat-kekt, who, along with other Nez Percé tribal members, respected the land and had the wisdom never to abuse a river or to wish that they could stop it from flowing. They called the Wallowa–Grande Ronde Rivers Welleweah—“River that Flows into the Far Beyond.” Character: forested canyon."
