2 Parks near John Day, Oregon
Aug 2015 - $24.00
This is everything you could wish for in a state campground: big, spacious sites with lots of privacy, esp. on the perimeter, lots of trees for shade, clean restrooms with lots of hot water. It doesn't get much better than this. We intended to stay one night and stayed for four - wish we had stayed longer & we will definitely return. - gtogrl

This park is by far my favorite. We stayed for 2 nights and it was a real treat. The park had large grassy areas with plenty of bushes for privacy and trees for shade. The bathroom and showers were clean. We would definitely stay at the park again. - cnatrvlr

Park is well designed with plenty of room between sites. Lots of green grass, and trees for shade. Hiking trail to fishing pond. Day use for picnic and get together. Need to stop and judge for yourself. Lots of things to see and do, just ask the Ranger or Camp Host. - Roger from boise

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

Good campsites, cheap price, shady, good place for stop over when traveling through Oregon, it was nice to find this available. Self register, half full when we came through. Lots of places to walk the dog, not much to do around there. Only internet I found was at the local McDonald's. No T-Mobile data service. Very clean bathroom and shower. - smokeyd
