IAA District 2 - DirectorBill Ables (541) 263-1327

IAA volunteers have been making improvements to this short airstrip during the last few years. The grass and dirt runway surface is in good condition by backcountry standards. In keeping with an agreement with administrators of the Hells Canyon National Recreation area, the volunteers assemble an outhouse in the fall and disassemble it in the spring so that river users don't see it during the summer boating season. There are no other camping amenities.
