Anson Wright Park Information

Anson Wright is part of the Morrow County Parks system that is adjacent to Rock Creek. This park provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere for camping and recreation. Guests often report seeing wildlife as they cross through the park.

Anson Wright Memorial Park was land originally owned by the Wright Family. The family generously donated the land to the County and the Park opened in 1967 for camping. The park offers a variety of camping from primitive tent camping, full RV hook-ups and a small cabin.

Things to do and see

Morrow/Grant County OHV Park is located 6 miles from the park and approximately 30 miles from the John Day River. The OHV Park offers an area where All Terrain Vehicles (ATV) can go and ride on the trail system for the day and then return to Anson Wright for a quiet peaceful nights rest. Park guests can go to the river to float the river or just enjoy it from the bank and fish during the day, to return to the park and cook their day’s bounty and tell stories while sitting around a campfire.
