5 Parks near John Day, Oregon
Jul 2016 - $30.00
Monument is located on the North Fork of the John Day River, approximately 120 miles southwest of Pendleton, 60 miles northwest of John Day, 142 miles northeast of Bend, and 190 miles southeast from the Portland airport.
This is a combination Motel and RV park. The park is very quiet and peaceful. Located directly next to a large open field where wildlife such as deer, Mountain Goats and wild turkey can be spotted.
It is a very simple park with a friendly family owned staff. It could stand some improvements, but considering the very small town size, it is amazing it exists at all. - Oregon_Adventure

Nice park on the John Day River. Paved sites with attractive landscaping that lent a private and spacious air to the site. Walking trail, and small pond with fishing pier nearby. Camp host(s) were very friendly and helpful. - SeenAll50

Beautiful well maintained campground. Some mosquitoes along riverwalk. Only one pullthru, but otherwise all long spacious sites. Fills up fast even midweek. Camphosts very helpful. Would definitely stay here again. - brauneyz

A beautiful State Park, right on the John Day River. Several hiking trails available with easy access to the park. Water and electricity at each site and our site was perfectly level.
May well be the best park on our trip. Very well maintained, beautiful park. We only stayed one night but plan to make another trip here and stay a while to explore the area. - Clyde Clevenger

This is a very basic RV park. Pay your fee into an envelope. No host on site. Restrooms across a field, which might have been open or not. Sites are gravel, hookups work, roomy lengthwise. Place was nearly empty when we were there, so no feeling of being crowded. Lots of room to walk the dog. Fine for an overnight stay. Seems like the price could have been lower, given the amenities, i.e., none. - LeeL

Great location close to town and amenities. Clean and level gravel sites with shade from trees that did leave a light sap film. Cleaned off easily. Would have been perfect 2 night stay with sight seeing and visiting the 1188 Brewery except there were a group of commercial mushroom pickers in the 3 sites adjoining ours and had their dryers running all the time. Would have complained but could only leave a note since we never saw anyone who worked there.
Saw a lot of sheep our first day, this is a fairground, with 4H kids bringing in their stock. Did not use restrooms or showers since they were across a large grass area and we are self contained.
Roads a wide and sites are long if you are in the middle loop. There are back in along east side that back to the grass area, We had no trouble getting Direct Tv even though there are a number of trees. - Vault

This is a basic campground conveniently located within walking distance to the town of John Day. There are 3 different fee structures. Dry camping cost $10 located on grass. Electric only (20 amp service) cost $15. These spots are located around the red barn. None of these spots are level and can accommodate only a small rig. The full hookup section cost $27. All prices include tax. There is also a dump station, but we could not find it. The interior road and sites within the full hookup section are paved. There is 20/30/50 amp electrical service. The electrical voltage was good. All of the utilities are located in the outer middle side of the site. The pull-thru sites are long enough that you may not have to unhitch the tow. Some of the sites are shaded, but you have to be a little careful because the trees may hit your rig. The bathrooms are clean and there are 3 private showers. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. There is Wi-Fi within the campground, but we did not use it. The lights attached to the electrical box do not work, so it is pretty dark at night. Overall, this is a nice quiet park. We would come back here again if we were in the area. - adsaxs
