13 Parks near Moro, Oregon
Jun 2016 - $20.00
I have no idea how this park received such high rating. It's very narrow sites sit on rock with a dead weed patch between sites.
Could not completely open the awning or it would hit my neighbor.
It does have new restrooms and showers; that's the only plus.
This park was built in the 90s as a work camp for the people working on the wind turbines and there a good reason for wind turbines. It blows hard most of the time. It rocked our 30,000 pound motorhome all night.
Cable TV which the host touted is horrible. WiFi is slow, as is expected from an RV park.
If you're in the area go 20 miles further north to the Washington side of the Columbia river for much better parks. - traveler1952

This was the first night of a long trip to places we have never been to. Chose this park because it was the only one that took us toward John Day OR from the Tacoma area in a one day drive that seemed decent. Only about 7 other trailers in park and I think they were full timers. Park had very new restroom/shower facilities that were roomy and very clean. Park was out of town about 1/2 mile and very quiet. Being part of the Grant County Fairgrounds made for excellent pet walking potential. The views of Mt Hood and Mt Adams were nice especially at sunset. We did not go into town so cannot say anything about it. The host was very pleasant and helpful. - Vault

This park is owned and run by the County. It is a quiet little gem. Beautiful views of the rolling green hills and a lovely little town tucked in the valley. The park is sparse but more than adequate. With spacious pull- thrus. The restrooms and showers were spotless. Wifi was very good as was the cable. The camp host was extremely knowledgeable about everything within 30 miles. It was very windy when we visited. Well worth the 2 days we were there. It is $20.00 for 30 amp & $25.00 for 50 amp. - Ross Brand

Found this spot in this tiny town after major car wreck closed road for hours. Surprise had excellent Wi-Fi! Good for an emergency stop, traffic noise is loud. Would stop again if necessary. - saturn7

This is Oregon's newest State Park and we couldn't be more impressed. There are 21 primitive campsites, a tent area with 7 sites and a group tent camp for up to 25 people, all first-come, first-served. The setting is the beautiful John Day River canyon. The sites are very well spaced. There is no real privacy except for wind breaks that are set up at each picnic table. The campground drive loop and parking pads are gravel. The pads are fairly level. The vault toilets were the cleanest I've seen. There are at least 4 water spigots available for filling your fresh water tank. The nearest dump stations are in Moro or Condon (each about 40 minutes away). Recreational opportunities abound. Before choosing this park, please visit the campground website. This is a wild and natural area with abundant wildlife viewing opportunities and some wildlife that are to be avoided. As for us, we can't wait to come back again. - RickB

Beautiful park right on the river. Lots of trees but we were able to get a signal for our dish! Sites are more than ample especially if on the river side of the park. Large open area behind our rig. Only two negatives. First is that there are trains and lots of them and second is that you have to 5 miles up river to a Shell station to dump for $6.00. But we have enjoyed this park so much we will stay there again. - User2209

Clean and comfortable. Easy to back into our spot. We happened to get there when there were a lot of moths. They were annoying. Trains were pretty loud. We had to close the windows and turn on the air conditioning to drown out the noise. Probably will not stay again. Rate reflects online booking fee. - Trekking

This is a serviceable campground, pretty much DIY. You put money in an envelope and choose your own site. If you want WiFi (free), you call the park host and he comes down to the office and gives you WiFi passwords for as many devices as you'd like to use. WiFi works well. The sites are fairly level, have full hookups, and some have some shade. The picnic tables are good. The views are quite nice--you can see the river and the surrounding hills, and it is quite pretty. Nice rather small trees. Grass at all the sites. This is a place where overnighters come, and there are also temporary people, and up the hill are people who live there. No complaints at all. The overnight fee is fair. The showers/restroom is okay. The showers are not very private. Cleanliness is so-so. This is a place where the restrooms are open for showers at $3, and there are locks on the TP dispensers. You can figure it out. No complaints here. I'd stay here again for an overnight or even for a few days. Peaceful overall. - LeeL

The park is graveled but the site we stayed in was level and had a little shade. Wifi was charged for so we did not use. VZ cell service worked great. No cable TV, but all other utilities worked fine. It was quiet at night although trains run along the west side of town about every 20 minutes. They never blow their horns so it didn't bother us. They don't take reservations, you pick your spot and use the envelope system at the office to pay. We stayed in a pull through site and stayed hooked up to a 37' travel trailer. They have both 30 & 50 amp power. We stayed one night and would stay there again. - Arlen
Jul 2015 - $22.00
Nightly rate reflects weekly discount, $150 for a week. Basic, no frills, park. Quiet place. No loose dogs running around during my stay. Mgr was friendly enough. He prefers you just drop your money in the box at the office and pick a site, but he picked up the phone each time (3) I called. RV park options are limited in this area. Pull thru site was long enough for my 41' coach and longbed dually to fit. Good water pressure. No cable and zero antenna tv stations. Pretty good wi-fi for streaming. Laundry is $1.50 wash and $1.50 dry. No fenced-in dog area. Lots of permanent residents, but not a lot of traffic coming and going in the park, which is a good thing. I wouldn't put in in my schedule to stay here again, but if I was in the area and needed a place to stay, this would be o.k. - TH travelers

A pleasant green campground with small trees and riverfront views. Clean and comfortable. We would happily stay again.
After seeing the neighboring state park was going to cost $53.00 for one night, I selected Peach Beach for our overnight stay in the Maryhill area. The only difficulty was in making a reservation. We called during the posted hours on their website, and had no luck reaching anyone. The voicemail box was full, so we could not leave a message.
We pulled into the park around 4pm on a Thursday afternoon with no reservations, and took one of the few open sites remaining. It was a water and electric back-in site with a fairly level gravel drive. The site was moderately narrow, but we fit.
The campground is well-manicured, green, and filled with many small trees. A peach orchard just outside gives the campground its name. We enjoyed walking down near the river, and over to Maryhill State Park right next door. The bathrooms were clean and well maintained, but a bit out-dated looking. The dump station was clean and functional. We had a pleasant stay, and would happily visit again. - RobinM

This park is located just East of Maryhill State Park. It was self check in, we never saw an attendant of any kind. We pick a spot right on the Columbia River. The place is immaculate, nothing out of place. The back in spaces o the river have only power and water, the pull throughs have sewer too at $5 more. There is a dump station. No fires of any kind are allowed. - Clyde Clevenger

This a great alternative to Mary Hill state park, even if the state park is not full. The rate reflects a site with out sewer hookup. Friendly campsite hosts, level sites, good Wi-Fi, picnic tables, and lots of nicely kept lawn made this a very nice overnight stay. The washrooms, while clean enough, are throwbacks to decades past, and long overdue for a remodel. Train noise may be an issue if you were staying for more than a night or two. We would overnight here again. - EmmaS

Whoever designed the parks watering schedule must have been a moron. There are signs posted throughout the park regarding the sprinkler schedule, all of which assure campers it won't impact their picnic table. Wrong! The huge impact-style sprinklers were turned on at the dinner hour, and the table and entire campsite were watered until too muddy to use the rest of the evening. Then, to make matters worse, they came on again the next morning just at the time campers were packing up to leave. The site numbering system must have been designed by the same moron. This is another overpriced Washington State campground that is sorely in need of better management. We wouldn't consider returning. - PATHFINDER AND RAINBOW

Have stayed here before but the place is looking pretty run down now. Still a nice state park but the prices are too high for what is offered. We had to pay an extra $10 parking fee because my wife follows me in a Jeep. We only stayed one night because we decided to head into Oregon where the pricing is more reasonable. - americana

We have stayed in this park several times before, and knew what to anticipate. However the unwatered grass and some unkept sites dismayed us. Though easily accessible from the freeway, the road noise is less noticeable than the trains passing at all hours. We love to visit Maryhill winery when we stay there & again they did not disappoint. There is limited Verizon service & no cable, WiFi, or antenna TV. The sites are fairly level, but could benefit from more gravel. Though a bit more costly, the sites by the river remain our preference. We will return to this park & hope the deficiencies noted are resolved. - nw explorers
Sep 2014 - $11.00
Rate reflects NPS Senior discount. Level gravel sites, some pull-through mostly back-in. Power and water at all sites, central dump station on-site. This time of year it's full of people fishing for fall salmon, and space can be difficult to get. Verizon data service is mediocre at best, and nonexistent part of the time, so if you need access look elsewhere. - lostinspace

A previous review said these sites were too close. They could be further apart but I have been in one a lot closer! Nice park. Fair ATT, depending on site, satellite is accessible. As in many places, the "dogs on leash" applies to everyone but their dog. Good swimming access though we didn't use it. Rate reflects Golden Age Pass. Would camp here again. - vmi1962
Sep 2013 - $10.00
Price reflects Golden Age card. Got here around 2 pm on a walk-in basis, and all the pull-through waterfront spots were taken, as were most of the back-in spots. All sites are uncomfortably close together, nothing like other COE campgrounds we've been in. Back-in sites don't have much of a view either. Those are the reasons for our low score. Lack of on-site sewer hookup doesn't concern us, but proximity to neighbors does. Best get there quite early for best choice of sites, or make a reservation. - NancyB

This is a city run park in Dufur. The host is extremely helpful and does a great job running and taking care of the campground. Most of the sites are back-in next to a creek and facing the ball field. Very clean bathrooms. We would stay again. - spitfirepete
Dec 2014 - $20.00
Basic, no-frills park that caters to long-termers working on nearby construction projects. Excellent for us lower-income, retired folks as long as you have your own bathroom. Wifi worked great. Staff very friendly and helpful; I called in from 15 miles out and he was there waiting for me to guide me in the dark to my spot. I wouldn't bring children, a Big Rig or anything with slide-outs here if I were you. - Old Mountain Man

Sites are very narrow, dirt and gravel and uneven. Neighbors awning protruded into our site. NO TV! Too much emphasis placed on grass. Limited space for towed vehicle. - SmokeyBear
Jul 2008 - $20.00
Nice clean park with wonderful hosts. Small park with some long term residents. Spaces were nicely shaded and adequate for big rigs. No bathrooms, no pool, no game room, no laundry, no Wi-Fi. Just a nice, quiet place with full hook-ups to spend a night or two. If you need more - go someplace else. Cost was $20 per night when we were there. Payment by cash or check only. About 12 miles south of The Dalles, Oregon on SR 197. Coordinates: 45d 27'04.66" N and 121d 07' 44.85" W Address: 10 NE Aiken St., Dufur, OR - Gerry Brentnall
