Stayed here over the Labor Day long weekend. Great forest service campground. No hook-ups but very nice forest settings. Great hiking trails. The sites are quite spacious and on the lower end quite far a part. Has vault toilets and the campground looks like you are just boondocking as there is no grass just forest vegetation around your site. Very quiet park with very dark nights so the stars are just lighting up the sky. Will be back to this little jewel! - afnashcom

We have stayed here twice this summer and only because it is close to the Northwood Mfg. plant who manufactures the Arctic Fox RVs. The campground is fine but the business practices of this park are suspect. On our first visit, in April of this year, at check in, I mentioned we were Good Sam members expecting a discount off the published rate of $32. The clerk said the $32 published rate included the discount! She also tried to collect $34 saying that the rate had gone up at the beginning of the month. I told her that the form on the door for check in when someone was not in the office said $32! She was surprised and said those should have been removed when the rates went up. She still wanted to collect the $34 but I told her that the published rate on their website said $32 and the form on the door said $32 and that was the rate I was going to pay. She agreed and accepted the $32 but would not budge about the discount was included!
Otherwise this is an attractive park, good utilities and nice pull thru sites. Also good Verizon signal and close to town. - Rick & Karen

We have stayed here before and have found the park a little better this year. There are many long termers and children but not as noisy as last year. The highway noise and train noise is always there but not real bad. The laundry is reasonable and clean. We would stay here again if in the area. - Roger W

I stayed here last month for one night. It is next to the highway and a lot of traffic noise is heard when you are outside, but I barely heard it with my windows closed and my air conditioner on. I stayed here previously about two years ago, and it has both improved and worsened since I was last here. On the negative side, they had a lot of long term residents when I was here before, but they were kind of segregated and not an overwhelming number. Now the park is full of long term residents. When I say full, I mean like 90% is long term residents. They are not picky about the condition of the rigs they let stay long term at all. Some of these RVs look like they can never move again. However, most all of the permanent residents kept their sites clean, although many need to do some obvious repairs. On the positive side, the showers and bathrooms are much cleaner than I remember from my last visit, and definitely above average in cleanliness. The camp host is very helpful and friendly. The Wi-Fi was adequate. There is lots of shade. The sites are a really good length, although somewhat narrow. The location is convenient. It is dog friendly. The park is not a resort by any stretch of the imagination. It is a place to spend one night when you are too tired to keep driving, or a place to move into for long term when you are homeless. It is also very overpriced. - Holly Rhodes

Nice park and as stated previously, all sites along the highway.. of course there usually is about 4 vehicles per hour along that stretch. Price indicated was before mil discount. If host available, inexpensive firewood available.
No dump station, nearest La Grande.
We picked a site in the back. Very close to road, but good dog area. - Bob Nelson

Nice park, but the spots are all right next to the road so it is a little loud. The first four spots are out in the open, but the rest have some pretty good shade. Water is available at all RV spots, and I think generally at the back. - Webfoot0807

Very nice park. All 10 RV sites are back-in and the park is right next to road, but traffic noise was very low during our stay. There are 10 tent sites as well. Really nice partial secluded picnicking next to the Grand Rhonde river. Great fishing during the spring/early summer months. Lots of well kept grass for the kids. This is a first come first serve park. La Grande is not too far away if you need something. - afnashcom

Nice campground next to the Grande Ronde River on FS rd 51. 6.2 miles from state 244. This could be an excellent campground if the USFS would maintain it even a little.. Brush is overgrown and several sites really are not usable.. Shame on USFS for letting the site go down hill.
There is one very large pull through site. The rest are back-in. - Bob Nelson

This is a lovely campground and if it were not for the highway noise I would have rated it a 10. We first were on a dry camp spot. No hookups, but a water tap available nearby. Then when we found out it would be a week before our new A/C would be installed we switched to a full hookup site. Unfortunately for us this was even closer to the freeway and the noise! It is a great place to camp and except for the late afternoon/early evenings the sounds become white noise and not as bothersome. Another drawback to our site is no satellite signal or antenna reception available! But we have good Verizon signal and good 50 amp service. We would camp here again. - Rick & Karen

The Emigrant Springs State Heritage Area near Meacham, Oregon is a nice stopover, positioned as it is just off the Interstate I-84. Regrettably, adjacent highway noise, at least well into the evening is a nuisance from the main East-West artery, which keeps this park from getting a perfect score in our book. After researching the available campsites and photos on ReserveAmerica, I chose site B07 as one of the spacious full hookup sites (limited availability though planned months in advance), but if it had been available, it would have been better to choose something on the other side of the B loop, which oddly has lights on their electrical hookup (generally we like darkness in our parks to see stars and feel remote), but the light might be a convenience to some. However, even these sites do not provide much better respite from the highway noise and when we were there at least, seemed to have a faint sewer-related odor, perhaps as these are nearer to the bathroom facilities. The showers and bathrooms were spotless, very well maintained even by high Oregon State Park standards, and we were surprised to read this park is decades old, parts of it built during CCC days, as everything is in excellent condition. Site was level, not too busy during weekday August stay (few tent campers in particular). Hosts very accessible and friendly. Verizon MiFi worked very well and a few over the air digital TV channels were found at night (not during daytime) from the Southern Washington Tri-Cities area (not mainstream channels but some local news and weather that kept us posted on regional fires and smoke that have been plaguing the West summer 2015). We would (and will) return for 1-2 night stays on our trips in/out of the state given routing convenience, value, maintenance, few nice (though unmarked) trails, and site size and amenities, but will not make this a destination or extended stay due to highway noise and not as much "heritage" as we thought we might find from early Oregon Trail travelers (such as wagon marks in Idaho and other areas for example, though there was a restored covered wagon, a presidential plaque, a nice historical display and marker). Interesting tidbit: A knowledgeable host informed us that the original "Emigrant Springs" was covered by I-84 when constructed in the 1950's. - dns718

It is forested which helps that part of the day there is shading, & makes you feel your in a literal camping world. The highway is too close, that vehicle activity is loud many hours but still, the woods are filled with big trees & growth. Our site had a water spigot, picnic table, nice brick grounding beneath the tent & paved vehicle spot. I may be wrong about the site number but it was the disabiilty slot near the restrooms & was a spacious site. Good showers, good restrooms with some plugs for hair dryers. Lots of people from all over the park use the same restooms so there is a busy time. We got in there just fine. - nightofstars

Very nice, large, quiet, clean well-kept park with a good amount of space between sites. Grass (prickly) between sites. Sites are gravel. You may hear the occasional train. There is a hot spring "canal" that puts off a slight sulfur odor if you are close to it. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The Wi-Fi is Excellent!!! And since there are no trees (ergo no shade) the satellite reception is excellent for Direct TV. Be sure to tell them when you register or at least when you check in that you want to use your satellite so they put you farther out and not close to the hill right behind the resort which would block your line to the satellites. It is 5 miles off of I-82 so no freeway noise - Pay attention to their directions and take exit 265 not 268 as Google or GPS might tell you - that would put you on a gravel road for 2 miles. As it is there is about ½ mile of gravel to the park but not bad. Restrooms are older and could use an update but they were clean enough. We would stay here again - longer if we were going to explore this very interesting and unique area. - NiMo

Very quiet and peaceful. Pull through dirt/grass spaces very long and level. Out away from the hustle and bustle of city and interstate. Train nearby but not noticeable as no horns. A great place to just relax. We've stayed here before and we'll stay here again. Upgrading wifi but in our space it was difficult to use but Verizon & AT&T were adequate. - rvicsvol

Overall very clean, and quiet. Pool and hot tub, not very hot. Outdoor shower for pool. Rather close quarters. - David Noack

First the staff was very helpful and friendly. The park is very small. We had trouble getting our slides out without hitting side partitions, between the sites. The website shows deep green grass at each site but all we had was dead grass and pet waste. Of the 8 sites 6 where occupied by long term, older rigs with lots of clutter. The park is behind the Hotel and as such is a little hard to maneuver into with a big rig (39ft), but it did fit. We did eat at the hotel. They had a good menu but a little high for the quality of food. Staff was very nice and accommodated a late checkout so we could play golf. - The Cook

Union is a very nice, clean, small town. Recommended restaurants is Gravy Dave's (across the street) for basic home cooked food. There is also 24 hour WI-FI available at the library next door. Library hours are limited but WI-FI is 24 hour and you can access from outside the building. - Hayesworld

The Union Hotel has a small RV Park behind it. It's easily passed by. We stayed there while working on the new windmills in the area. The park is all gravel with lots of shade trees. It's right next to the city park where there is a park, gazebo and horseshoe pits. There is a stream next to the park with a swimming hole. Deer come through the park every morning and evening and will come right up to your trailer. The people that own and run the hotel are absolutely wonderful. The shower is inside the hotel and you have to ask for a key, but it's a huge shower. - ajharkins

Not a "typical" rv park. Self sign in which was ok but I prefer a person. A person did end up stopping to check on us and showed us where the site was (very nice guy) he took our credit card and was able to process it, if he had not been there, we were to put cash or check in a slitted lock box. The grounds were clean. A lot of units look like they live there. No amenities except a soda machine. Wi-fi was not great, cell reception good. Our site had own large yard with no parking on entry side of rv, rv on the other side only. - Bernadette Newman

Small RV park in Elgin with a lot of full timers. Restrooms are individual with a shower, toilet and sink which is very nice. They were in dire need of cleaning as the floors were very dirty. The manager is very nice and helpful, he came out to greet us as we arrived and made sure we had the correct site. We had problems with our 50 amp service but he let us use the electrical site next to us for the 3 days we were there so we didn't have to move. Park is within walking distance of town. No cable hookups but we had excellent antenna service. - Kitty 55

We like quiet RV parks, so we picked this park and not the one in La Grande.
Although we had our doubts when we saw the campground the first time (it is not a resort), it turned out to be a good choice.
No camp host on duty, so we picked a spot without nearby neighbors, filled-in the form and put our payment in the safety box.
Sites are close together, but I cannot imagine this park to be fully occupied at any time. We were the only 'non-residents'.
The park was clean and the private rooms with toilet, sink and shower were spotless.
Wi-Fi worked fine. - Bluesbirdy
