Located around a scenic meadow and surrounded by majestic trees such as Engelmann spruce and Lodgepole pine, Target Meadows has a unique history. It was used by U.S. Army soldiers stationed at Ft. Walla Walla as a summer encampment and artillary range from the late 1880s through 1906. Visitors who explore the campground and surrounding area can even find grooves in trees left by the Calvary's bullets. Located at the end of the road is the Burnt Cabin Trailhead. This trail will lead you down to the South Fork Walla Walla River Trail.
