If you're going South on I19make a Right Turn

If you're going North on I19 make a Left Turn

the turn off is around Dairy Queen and Quality Inn ... Look for signs to "Gorge Gateway Center" - once on that road (Laurel St) campground road is the 1st driveway on the Right. Checkin at building with a sign that says "General Store."
