One night stay while driving from ID to the Willamette Valley. Nice little park. Restrooms and showers are more associated with the fairgrounds by distance than the RV park. Since it was below freezing and we left early we did not use them. Our site was a very long pull through and required a couple of blocks in the front to level. I think if I would have surveyed the whole length better I would have a found a level spot. $30 seems a little steep unless there is something going on in town. There are not many alternatives but it does have full hookup. A large open field was available for our dog. Since the place was nearly empty we let him chase the ball under voice command so he could get some exercise. The signage at the front fair ground gate could be better, we thought we were supposed to pull into the fairground parking lot then figured out you had to go in a back way after seeing another RV on the grounds. - tfemaker

Overall this was a nice quiet park. Site 10 was a back with 50 amp and full hookups. There are old, tall trees that are well kept. Satellite TV reception was good. Grounds were gravel but level. The park sits on the fair grounds. The bathrooms and showers are a fair walk away from the park and require $5.00 to use shower. There were local children playing around the bathrooms. The town of John Day is a small quaint town with small shops. The John Day river is directly behind park and great for fishing even though not great for us catching fish! Prices were a little expensive in town. Nice park that we would stay at again. - Jake and Peggy

Located at the fairgrounds, this place gets mixed reviews from me. The trees are lovely and it is a very quiet location from which you can walk to town if you want. There at both pull -through and back-in sites. It is small but negotiable. The grounds are very dirty with the old gravel almost gone. I was glad we had a rug to put down at the door. The wifi worked sporadically the first day and then it just went away. Management seemed confused about site assignments. If there is a public bathroom we were not made aware of it nor a laundry. I would only return because the town is so cute and the people very friendly. - Myrt & Gordy

Well maintained park, lots of lawn & trees. Paved roads & sites, W/E & water at sites with dump station at front of park. Site #27 had clear sky for satellite reception. Camp host on site. Water pressure in the showers is a little low, & hot water is better described as warm water. Sites have good spacing and hedges for privacy. - rvrrat520

Paved roads and sites easy to get around in. Plenty of sites for large rigs, 1st come so some of the large sites may have been taken. Power 20, 30, 50 amp with water at site. Dump station on the way out. The showers were clean by the pressure was so-so and hot water falls into the almost warm but not cold category. Some nice trails that wander around the park. Your about 7 miles from John Day with has a nice little micro brewery with some pretty good food. We'd stay here again if we're in the area. - pumper9x9

Beautiful state park on the John Day River. Grounds are well maintained with sprinklers running all day. Paved back-up sites are up 86 ft. deep with lots of room between sites and buffer of Oregon Grape in front of many. Paved roads provide plenty of room for easy maneuvering. Nearby John Day River provides splashing opportunity for kids and dogs. Nice trail that leads to a nature pond. Hwy 26 is close by so there is road related noise. No reservations so get here early. Check out is 1:00 and most sites are full by 3:00 even though check-in isn't until 4:00. No wifi, but had 4G with solid 4 bars on my Verizon service. One of our favorite state parks in Oregon. - DSchamp

This is a semi primitive National Forest campground. Fifty acre lake, 5000 feet elevation, beautiful area. Fishing good for rainbow and brook trout. Swimming beach and boat ramp - small boats only and 10MPH speed limit. Eight percent grade for about three miles. Paved road all the way to the lake. - Lenp

The previous review is accurate about the park. Excellent 2 day stop to rest and catch up. Across HWY 395 to the west is a quiet dirt road for long walks with the dog. To the north are the Strawberry Mtns. If you are looking for no frills, inexpensive place to relax for a couple of days, this is an excellent choice. Owner was very friendly. There is a lumber operation to the east, but the noise was not an issue. I would definitely stay here again. - cherib

The park is located 25 miles south of John Day Oregon on Highway 395. It is not a resort but it definitely is a nice to stay. There are no extra amenities but if you're looking for a quiet place to stay with pull-through sites for a few nights, this will work. It is a plain and simple RV park with no store, no playground and no pet area. There are, however, areas to allow your dogs to run and play. We camped here in a 45 motorhome with a tow and the site wasn't quite long enough but we made it work without making it an inconvenience for others. The owners are very nice and we will definitely stay here again. I would have rated this park a 10 but deducted one point because the sites aren't long enough to accommodate a 45' RV with a tow. - travelingpeople
