3 Parks near Burns, Oregon
Jun 2015 - $40.00
Great reception, making reservation and checking in. Pull-through for big rig very long and wide. Easy in/easy out. This is a small park that is well maintained and quiet. Utilities well located and safe. Large field at back for dogs but watch out for swarms of mosquitoes at dusk. Perfect overnight stop to rest. - edhcook1

Needed a way point stop and found this RV park listed for Burns. Decided to give it a go.
Not too far off our route. Small but extremely well maintained park. There are only about 50 spots of varying sizes. Some pull throughs but more back ins. All sites have 30/50 amp, water and sewer, a picnic table, free wifi, and plenty of space between sites.
Front desk person was extremely friendly.
There is a nice grass area for the dogs, a laundry and a bath/shower house. The showers are extremely small but very well kept.
The grounds are immaculate, and they do have plenty of shaded spots.
Good Verizon service here and they do have a few spots that are good for satellite, including roof mounted.
We would definitely stay here again if in the area. - Kgtraveler

The nightly rate is based upon a weekly rate. This park is about 1 mile east of Burns, Oregon, right on the highway, but highway noise was not a problem in the evening. The owner was very nice and helpful. The turn into the park is a bit sharp and new pavement has raised the road bed a bit. The Interior roads are gravel. Pull through sites are reserved for overnighters. There were some sites with very old and tall trees which proved lots of daytime shade in this high desert environment. Good tasting water. No problems with the electric. Laundry room was very nice and very clean. lots of channels on the cable. The park sits adjacent to a small river and mosquitos were a bother in the evening and chased us inside every night. We stayed 1 week and definitely would stay again. - tnhall

The camping spaces were adequate and fairly level. No trees to worry about. The hot springs were AWESOME! Hosts were great. Can't wait to return! - Second Chance Cruisers

This place is the best. We do this full time. In other words we live in our RV all the time. For the last 3 and a half years. We go to a lot of RV parks. This is not a resort, but it clean, nice laid out well and has a huge pond that's 101°F, all the time. It's a mineral spring. This place is quite, nice, fantastic, and it's my all-time favorite RV park. - Mike and Darcy

We planned on staying for only one night but if you want sewer you must stay two nights. They only have 4 sites with electric, water, sewer, and 5 sites with water and electric. They also have sleeping cabins and tent area. The main draw for us was the hot springs pond. The temp was around 102 and very relaxing. It is small volcanic gravel bottom so some type of shoe is recommended. They also have private hot tubs available at an extra cost. The pond is used for day use and draws in quite a few people. There are only 2 restrooms and 2 showers which both had a waiting line but were clean. There is a very nice common room with kitchen facilities and television. No cable TV or WiFi available at our site. Its a shame the grounds are ruined by an area of junk. Old building, old campers, and heavy equipment make the area an eyesore. They do accept Passport America for 1 nite bringing the rate to $10. Not sure if we would return. - Liv4sun

This is a primitive US Forest Service campground adjacent to US-395 about 20 miles north of the town of Burns, OR (closest town) located on the west side of the highway. I think it was about 55 miles south of the town of John Day, OR. We "dry" camped here for a family reunion. We used the one site in the middle of the campground that would accommodate two large fifth wheel trailers and several tents. Other sites are a mix of back-in and pull-through. Most are relatively small. The roads are narrow and it took some work with walk alongside guides for me to move my 40 footer through the campground around several curves to the site. I pre-walked my route out to make sure I had a good handle on where I had to start my turns to clear the large Ponderosa pine trees. No significant problems other than a few rubs against some low hanging branches that waxed out when I got home. If you need a great deal of room to move your rig through a campground don't even try this one. Once you enter you are committed to a curving route through the entire campground or you have to back out onto US-395 (really bad plan). The campground is right alongside US-395 but we rarely heard much road noise even when outside. Much of that is probably due to this campground's very rural setting and the fact that there just isn't much traffic on US-395. The campground is designated by the US Forest Service as a "horse" campground and as such it has a corral and hitching posts. There was no smell or fly problem as those facilities are quite a ways away from the actual camping area. We saw two horse there briefly during our stay. I suspect during the fall hunting season the campground sees more. There were maybe 3-4 other small groups camping here. It doesn't see much use except during the fall. The restroom is brand new and was in great shape. It's a pit toilet with no running water. It stayed in great shape except for the lowlife that pulled in late one night and his young wife threw up all over the floor and drove away. Our group carried water in and washed the floor out. There is a solar power water supply system and it is slowwwwwww!! Figure 20-30 minutes to fill a five gallon container. Make sure your RV fresh water tank is topped off prior to arrival. No sewer hookups or dump facilities. Plan on hauling it out with you. Some of the sites have US Forest Service concrete picnic tables (ours did). Even with it's shortcomings it's a beautiful location and we had a special family reason for wanting to be there. With a little planning and a few extras (we had two 6000kW generators, a Traeger BBQ grill, and many other self managed amenities it was a wonderful trip. I'd recommend it for a getaway from people location any time. - Idaho Traveler
