“perfect for a serious naturalist or casual visitor”

Ontario State Recreation Site is a restful day-use park situated on the west bank of the historic Snake River just north of Ontario, Oregon. Green grass, clean grounds, and modern restrooms greet visitors stopping to boat, fish, swim or picnic for the day. Majestic cottonwood trees, sumac and fragrant junipers offer large splashes of shade to cool the hot summer days and provide startling color in the autumn. Whether you are a serious naturalist or a casual visitor, Ontario is a great place to enjoy bird watching and other wildlife. Blue heron, Canada geese, river otter, and muskrat are found in the reeds and grass along the shores of the Snake River. Deer feed on a nearby island and are sometimes visible in the early morning mist. Bring your binoculars, picnic basket, boat or fishing pole. Ontario State Recreation Site can be a day away from it all.

Directions took me to a bunch of buildings. I didn’t research to see where the recreation site was so I don’t know how close we were.

This is probably fairly different than it was five years ago. Not as many picnic benches. We ended up not getting out because there were a couple people tweaking out in the park and we didn’t necessarily feel safe getting out with our kids. The description for this made it sound so fun so we were pretty disappointed.
