Greeting was very friendly. We were escorted to our site and guided into that site. Not sure why someone mentioned damaging their roof. Roads are paved and wide. Site was wide, long and level. Wi-Fi is great but over the air TV was better than their cable. We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a "KOA Journey" park which means it is intended as a temporary layover park, and has no resort amenities. It was very clean and situated on a bluff overlooking a scenic valley. Sites were extraordinarily tight with a skinny patch of grass and sharp gravel rocks. If we had our awnings out, our neighbors could not open theirs.

Lots of site utility poles were bent as if they had been hit by a rig or two. Utilities were poorly located at the far rear of each site, and required us to purchase additional hoses (at high price). Water pressure was good, and no electrical surges. We have a 37.5' fifth wheel and barely had enough room to squeeze our truck behind the rig. The same five vehicles were parked in the overflow parking during the entire week, so we could not park there.

In spite of multiple boosters, WIFI was abysmal. We used AT&T for our cell phones and had three bars of LTE coverage. It was plenty for streaming movies. The camp cable only had 20 or so local channels from Yakima, WA. We used our DISH satellite if we wanted cable channels.

The dog park and playground were nicely maintained. I would stay here again only as an overnight stop. We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend because there were no RV sites available in the Seattle area. The sites were tight for our 42 ft. rig.

The trees overhung and damaged my roof.

Nice little fenced in dog area with a view. We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Motorhome.

Sites are close together but overall the park is a good place for an overnighter. Infrastructure is in excellent shape, power was adequate even though everybody was running their air conditioners. Every spot has a concrete pad to park on. We wanted a shady spot (100 degrees out) and we were put between two seasonal sites. Those folks were very friendly and their sites were well kept. A strong breeze came up very suddenly (be careful about deploying awnings) as this KOA is on the top of a hill. We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Motorhome.

Attractive, well maintained RV park close to downtown Pendleton. Friendly and efficient check-in with escort to site. All roads are paved, as are most campsites. Back-in and pull-through sites and 30 or 50 amps are available. Most sites are separated by a narrow grass strip and shade tree, but the sites are close together. There is a playground and basketball hoop for the kids and a clean grassy dog park. There is no pool and limited space for walking large dogs. We enjoyed our overnight here and would stay again. We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Motorhome.

Pull through site was small but adequate. A little grass and a picnic table separates sites. Back in sites looked cramped. Hosts were wonderful, full of info on things to do and great places to eat. Laundry was very clean, Verizon voice and data were strong. Would be happy to stay here again. We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here one night in a pull-through spot. It was clean and well-maintained, in a location convenient for us to stop for the night. Check-in was efficient and friendly. Two sides of the campground have views of the Blue Mountains. We used the campground Wi-Fi , which was reasonably fast, and had excellent cell coverage via Verizon. We did not use laundry, showers, or restrooms. We would consider staying here again. We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Motorhome.

The majority of the sites that we saw in this park are quite tight, with ones in the center being back to back sites. We had very little room to park our truck and just barely fit into the site assigned to us. The single tree next to us was so close that our slide pushed into to get it open. I used the laundry and it was clean and convenient. The location is an easy drive into downtown Pendleton and close to the highway.

When we booked, we selected a back-in, full hookup 50/30 amp site. Our spot was is in the middle of the park, with another site directly behind us. We unhooked, leveled, and I went to plug in and the site only had 30 amp, with the heat we really wanted 50 amps to run both AC's (highs were 100+), and we had reserved a site with 50 amps. We went up to the office and they only had one 50 amp site for our stay (just a couple of days, but over the 4th). It wasn't a great location and looked awkward to get into, and we'd have to take our bikes and bike rack off to fit in. We decided to see if we could live with 30 amp for a couple of days.

This was a learning experience for us, we thought if you reserved 50 amp that you will get it. It's especially frustrating because, before our arrival, I tried to get the days leading up to our stay but they only showed 30 amp available, which led us to believe that we really had 50 amp. It's the ultimate in bait and switch. We don't often stay at KOA's, if we can help it, but we hadn't experienced this problem before, so we really were upset about it. At least the staff attempted to be accommodating, and they weren't upset when we told them we backed in to the picnic table and bent it.

Overall, we survived and we're glad that we cut our time there short. If you need to be in the Pendleton area, by all means stay here, just don't expect a bunch of room and be prepared to not get what you reserved if it's a busy weekend. We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Wool factory tour is free and interesting.

Underground tour, for a fee paid to a non-profit, gave a really interesting look into old time Pendleton. The stories of the brothels might not be suitable for younger children.

This is one of the nicer KOAs we've stayed in. Clean restrooms, shaded sites with concrete pads and grass, friendly, helpful staff. They even have breakfast on Sundays (and Saturdays if the park is full) for $5 and it's not just pancakes. The dog area has grass and benches to sit. It's easy off and on the freeway but I didn't notice freeway noise. I think the sites are a little narrow but I didn't see anyone with longer rigs having trouble getting in or out. We've stayed here before and would again. We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Motorhome.

Very clean and well maintained. Greeted professionally. We enjoy road trips across the USA and KOAs are very handy. They are near the freeway with easy access. We stay the night and are usually on our way to the next adventure in the morning. This KOA had a tree for shade, a bit of grass and a nice picnic table. The residents that live there full time were very quiet and respectful. This is one of the cleaner and nicest KOA we have stayed in through the years of our travels We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Motorhome.

Definitely not worth the money. The park was clean and had a pleasant appearance in spite of the large amount of permanent residents. However, the roads are tight and as we pulled into our site the tree branches scraped against our rig. Also, upon leaving we left by the far exit and the turn was so tight that our tow jumped over the curb. Good thing it is a jeep and not a regular car. I can not imagine why they have placed huge cement blocks in your way and have overflow parking there. Also, the manager was very slack in explaining how to access the WI-FI and directions were not written out fully on the sheet. I would look for another park next time. We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Motorhome.

This RV park is clean and quiet, but it has the ambience of sleeping in an RV storage yard. The park is long and narrow and the sites are close together. It has no pool, a very small pet area and a very small playground. It has 3 very nice private "unisex" bathrooms complete with showers. The laundry area only has 6 washers. The back in spaces are extremely small, however they are on a cement pad. Most of the short term back in spaces are back to back. The pull thru spaces have more room, but are on gravel with grass as a patio. Some pull thru gravel spaces are not level. Some have a raised sewer connection (which is very difficult to use since water doesn't run up hill). It's a nice park for a short stay. We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Motorhome.

Stayed here the last four years and enjoyed the overnight stay. I was guided in by attendant via golf cart. Told him tree limbs on both sides were against fifth wheel and could not open slide outs. Ask him to cut limbs said he would call the manager. Manager said he would not cut limbs and no other site available. To tired to move, left slides in. Park is geared for permanent residents. Am a long time KOA member. Will not be back to this KOA park. We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
