6 RV Parks near Joseph, Oregon
Aug 2009 - $30.00
Beware of owner/manager. We called ahead twice as a courtesy on the day of our reservation. When we arrived, the owner was clearly upset and began interrogating me about what took me so long to get there. My first attempt to calm the situation was to tell him the truth that it takes a long time to drag a heavy trailer across the state; especially with 6 small children who need frequent stops. That wasn't good enough for him. Clearly and visibly upset, he said, calling by my first name multiple times in very rude and condescending tones, "You did something, what was it!!" My next tactic was to tell him it was none of his business what I did before or after I left his park. At that point, he got belligerent and through me out of the office. I was left with a road weary family with no place to go for some reason that still baffles me to this day. Apparently taking more than 4 hours to drive from the Boise area to this park is a capital offense in this owner's mind. It was like a mix between the Twilight Zone and Bates Motel. Please - avoid the Mountain View Motel and RV Park at all possible. The guy is unstable. We Did Not Stay In This Park. - mylerg

This park has a number of negatives that prevents me from recommending it. 1) There are only about 9 FHU and they were all taken by long-term RVers. The rest of the sites are water and electric, a few of the sites have cable. There is only one price for RVers no matter what type of site you get. When we called, the owner led us to believe that we would get a FHU and we did not. 2) The owner allows his two dogs to run freely throughout the campground, barking and defecating all over the grass. Watch where you step. 3) We happen to stay during an event in Joseph. The owner allows tent camping and crammed as many people as possible into the grassy area. 4) The owner encourages you to dump your grey water onto your site to help keep it green. 5) The bathrooms and showers, while clean, were very rustic. The toilets wobble and the dividers and shower curtains don’t provide much privacy. Finally, there are no rules in this campground: nothing about quiet hours, etc. The owner has a laissez-faire attitude regarding rules. We camped here in a 30’ rig, and if you can guess, would not camp here again. - adsaxs

Small RV park near Wallowa Lake. It is a beautiful setting with lots of fir trees for shade and is located near the river. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The one downfall is that you have to pay for a shower at $.25 for 2.5 minutes. Not a big cost but a little inconvenient since you could only put three quarters in at a time! Wifi wasn't the best and the cell service is minimal but that is due to the area, not the RV Park. Great location as you can walk to the lake, Wallowa Lodge, the Tram and hiking trails. The town of Joseph is only about 7 miles away and if you are brave you can bike into town! - Kitty 55

A very pretty setting amongst huge trees and right near a swift river. The rest rooms were acceptable but nothing fancy. The sites are pretty close to each other but there is enough open space to be comfortable. Need more garbage cans, had to walk a ways to the dumpster. - Oregon Glenn

We stayed here at the height of the tourist season. Lot's of families and children. Many extended family groups as well. Overall, this was a very clean park in a great location in what is referred to as Lake Wallowa Village, which is by the south end of the lake and about 6 miles south of the more arid city of Joseph. This is the kind of park where they try to cram as many RV's into a small parcel of land as possible. As such, many of the sites are very close together and the winding, paved road through the park is very, very narrow. With many of the sites too small, there were cars and trucks sticking out into the narrow road making it even harder to maneuver a rig through the park, and backing up off off of such a small road can be a challenge, especially if the site is located between two large trees (as our site was). Lots of grass and a number of mature pine trees making the park partially shaded from the summer sun. We were is site 12, which had one of the larger grass spaces, but nearly everyone in the park cut through our site to get to the bathrooms. The park might as well put a path through site 12 (it's big enough for one). The bathrooms were OK. Clean, but not ventilated very well. There were two clean showers facing each other that required 75 cents for a long shower. However, there weren't any stools or mats, etc. for the showers. Just a little hook for each shower. Cell coverage is nonexistent, but they did have free WiFi, which was decent, but slow, and nearly worthless when more people used it. The short walk to the river was nice. They had a small hut at the entrance and had nothing for sale. There was only enough room for one RV to check in. The Motel across the street was very accommodating and had useful items for sale like ice, coffee, and Huckleberry ice cream cones. There were a few dry camping sites down by the river, which were the really nice. Not sure what the advantage of this park is over the State park nearby. - BrainDoc

Price quoted does not include required $8 fee for online reservation as fee can cover multiple days or even multiple parks if made during one session. I've stayed at many Oregon State Parks. The park at Wallowa is a decent park with a good camping (RV) experience, but it's heavily used and is often somewhat crowded. The camp sites are not particularly private, but do have sufficient room. Most of the spaces appear to be limited to an RV of 30-35 feet. The sites (and roadways) in the park are paved with asphalt. Tent sites are mixed in with RV sites on the camp site loops. Relatively few sites have full or W&E hookups. The internal roads are relatively narrow. I was surprised that backing into my site with a Sprinter Van RV (Class B) barely was able to stay on the pavement. I imagine that a larger, less maneuverable RV might find (some) sites difficult to enter. On the whole, this park is OK -- but not great. Main attraction is Wallowa Lake. Note: My small RV does not require a tow vehicle. - Pete_by_the_river

We stayed here in July. Very nice, clean and dog friendly campground. It was very full this time of year. A bit crowded but still very nice pull thru and back in sites. - Corey Esson

Arrived just as late Spring snow was falling. Water was still turned off but electricity worked fine. Nice park on the lake but I'd imagine it would be very crowded (and noisy) in summer. Sites are not spacious. Many are very long but space between sites isn't much and no shrubbery. Bit of a trip into Joseph (8 miles) but that's minor - lots to see and do in the area. Would stay here again. - K Patrick

Great Location. This RV park is only two blocks from downtown Joseph, which makes exploring downtown or walking to the local grocery store very easy. The park has 8 RV sites, with a few big rig friendly sites. When we made reservations, they let us know they had a perfect spot for us - it fit us and it was easy to back into. Very nice owners. We will return to this RV park, the next time we visit Joseph. - 2FullTimersinaFifth

The Five Peaks RV Park is clean and within walking distance to the shops and restaurants in Joseph, OR. It is quiet and peaceful. You will have to have at least two extensions to your sewer hose, because the sewer is located at the rear of each site, a long distance. There are only 5 to 6 sites available. The owners live on the property and are very nice! They provide you with info on the area, and they gave us fresh eggs from their hen house! There is no laundry in the rv park. - Lindy White

Joseph Oregon is one of the most beautiful small towns we have ever visited. And being a small town, well off the "beaten track" rv park choices are few and far between.
This place is a gem. Just a block off the main street, which is home to coffee shops, brew pubs, restaurants, galleries, etc, this park also boasts a spectucalur view of the Wallowa mountains which tower over the town.
The park is very small: 6 or 7 spots depending on how they configure overflow. Clean, gravel level back-in sites configured in a "horse-shoe around a pretty flower Garden and the owner's home. No bath facilities are available, so you must be self-contained. Full hookups and cable tv are available at each site. - Bruins_in_the_Bus

Nice, clean, well kept park. Spaces are to the short side, first thing I was asked was "how long are you?" I'm 35' and leaving my tow dolly on filled the longest space right up.
Several long term residents, but not to worry, three of them are LEO's. Owners extremely nice. Their pride in the park showed. Every day they were out doing something.
The Wallowa River runs on one side of the park so I guess if you are a fisherman that would be a plus. The river is fast flowing so if you have children they must be monitored.
Site pads are gravel but fairly level. No fire rings, two community rings. Several sites have water shut off for winter, rest have frost-free faucets.
Park WIFI is, well, park WIFI. Not bad but not fantastic. Solid AT&T cell.
We certainly enjoyed our stay and would have enjoyed it more if I wouldn't have gotten a cold from hell. We hope we can return soon. - RWSchuster

Very nice RV park in middle of the Wallows region. Right next to the Wallows River just on the outskirts of Wallows. Very quite picturesque setting. Friendly staff. Clean restrooms and showers. Would stay again and would recommend. - JABMPM

Pretty nice little park. As others have stated, nicely manicured with plants and flowers and benches spaced along the river. We wanted a spot facing the river so our particular site was small for our 45 foot motorhome. Since our back end stuck out in the road, they had us put up orange cones. Not a problem! The sites are close together, and we had to do some tree trimming to fit in our site. Utilities worked as they should, well, except for one day when we lost power on a 100+ day. My husband and our friend reported the outage to the owner (wife). Her husband wasn't there so she told my husband where the breakers were, and he and our friend reset it. So it's possible to get some hands on duty :) The WII FI was intermittent but we had decent cell service. Loved putting our chairs in the shallow part of the river and enjoying some adult beverages! FYI - they only accept cash or check so be prepared. - Free

We stay at this campground whenever we visit Wallowa County. The sites are neat and well kept. There is a laundromat on grounds and a car/truck wash near. The owners are personable and very laid back. We usually stay 1-2 months at a time and intent to return in 2011. Great value for the money! - mamaNpapa

I do not know why I stayed here when I could have stayed in Joseph. Dumpy gravel rv park. - Marylou

Gravel sites with gravel roads, it's a little dusty. Management is very friendly and helpful. Big laundromat on site with commercial machines. Self serve car & truck wash next to campground. Would stay here again. - Enophite
