Need directions to Sumpter…..?
Whether you are traveling Eastbound or Westbound on I-84, be sure to take Exit 304 into Baker City. If you are traveling from the East, you will be going downhill when you take exit 304 and you will see the Super 8 motel at the bottom of the exit. You will then turn left and travel under the freeway on Campbell St. Look for the Baker Truck Corral on your left and the Baker County Visitor Center on your right. If you are traveling from the west, you will see the Visitor Center on your right and the Baker Truck Corral directly in front of you.
The Baker County Visitor Center is a good place to stretch your legs, check on directions, and get stocked up on some helpful brochures of attractions in the area.
This is your exit if you are coming from the East.
You will see The Baker Truck Corral sign if you take Exit 304 coming from the West.
No matter which direction brings you……just be sure to take Exit 304!
