Emigrant Springs State Park

Emigrant Springs State Heritage Area

Emigrant Springs State Heritage Area is a state park located in central Umatilla County, Oregon, United States, approximately 15 mi (24 km) southwest of Pendleton. Located in old growth forest near the summit of the Blue Mountains along Interstate 84, the park was the location of a well-used campsite by emigrants along the Oregon Trail in the middle 19th century.

The park is open year-round and provides a modern campground with hook-ups. The park also has cabins available for rent. During the summer months the park features historical recreations of trail life in the 1850s. The park also contains an Oregon Trail interpretative center. The center is next to a marker commemorating the visit by President Warren G. Harding in 1923, who had come to Eastern Oregon to commemorate the Oregon Trail.
