Richland, Hewitt & John Holcomb Parks


Est. 1917; pop. 175; elev. 2,213′. Lodging, cafes, groceries & gas. Named in 1897 for the rich soil settlers found here, the Richland area still supports farmers and ranchers and now hosts the fishing and boating enthusiasts who recreate on nearby Brownlee and Oxbow reservoirs. Two Baker County parks provide boat access to Brownlee Reservoir, fishing, camping, RV hookups. Look for the Hole-in-the-Wall Landslide, between mile posts #30 & #31. The 1984 landslide covered the road and temporarily dammed the Powder River.
