The Umatilla National Forest, which covers more than a million acres in eastern Washington and Oregon, was originally three separate forests--Wenaha, headquartered in Walla Walla, Blue Mountain, originally headquartered in Sumpter, and Heppner. In 1911, the three were consolidated and the headquarters established in Pendleton.

Recreation is possible year-round in the Forest, with hiking, horseback riding, camping, skiing, hunting, and fishing. You can drive on over 5,000 miles of Forest roads or hike on 715 miles of trails. There are more than 20 campgrounds in the forest to choose from.
