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.

Tips for other Campers:

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 a nice RV park. Utilities and WiFi are good, the location is quiet. The streets are nicely paved, driveways and patio areas are gravel. The 30amp/50amp We stayed in a fifth wheel. We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Have stayed here before and probably will again if in the area. Many shaded sites and a dog run with grass. Very friendly staff. Good WiFi. We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Motorhome.

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.

This is a very nice RV park. Utilities and WiFi are good, the location is quiet. The streets are nicely paved, driveways and patio areas are gravel. The 30amp/50amp drive through sites have good spacing with well maintained grass areas between them. We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Motorhome.

Sites very tight. There is no pool, no playground, or any Greenspace. Many construction workers' trailers mixed in with families. This should not be a KOA. We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is spotlessly clean. Staff are all very nice and efficient. The sites are long, either paved or gravel, with grass in between the spaces. Each site has a picnic table. The park is pretty and well maintained. The laundry is excellent and the showers are nice. We also had excellent cable and Wi-Fi. Not much of a view, but it is quiet and easy to get to. We spent a holiday weekend here and appreciated the peace and quiet. We would stay here again. We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Motorhome.

What a welcome surprise! We just never stay in a KOA, but this one is nothing like any KOA we have ever seen. We were welcomed by very friendly staff. We were taken to our spot, which was plenty long for our 36' motorhome and tow. We had a grassy area outside our door to sit in the shade and have happy hour. Had our Papillons in their pen on the green grass. Someone was smart and faced all the RV spots to the north so you do not have to deal with the afternoon sun coming in the motorhome window. Most RV parks fail to take into consideration the afternoon sun. There are fulltimers in the park, but all the spots were very neat, which is unusual. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Motorhome.
