Baker City is more than a charming downtown. Sure, you’ll want to visit the Geiser Grand Hotel, built in 1889, the award-winning Barley Brown’s Brew Pub and more than 100 historic buildings. But Baker City is also the centerpiece of Baker County — known as “the base camp for Eastern Oregon” — which includes parts of the Snake River, the Oregon Trail and Hells Canyon, plus the Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort. You’re welcome to explore it all.
Baker City is located in Eastern Oregon, where miles of scenic byways, alpine wilderness, working cattle ranches and basalt canyons are still the place for explorers to make their mark.
This area includes the nearby subregion: The Wallowas.
