What a great RV park

This place is a gem in the rough. You are surrounded by wildlife, and entertained by the go carts. They even had food trucks Really big rigs could have a problem with the turns. BUT!!!! The most outstanding thing about this RV site is……… THE BATHROOM!!!!! WOW what a beautiful bathhouse! Super Duper Duper Clean!!!! You could eat off those floors. We will be back!! This time, we will have a little larger rig.

Beautiful Valley Views

Very quiet wide open campground surrounded by snowy peaks. Full hookups at all sites, mostly 30 amp service but many sites have 50 amp also. Great value for the money in a beautiful setting.

Great Fall Retreat

We enjoyed our off season stay!

Easy back in to our fairly level site.

Unfortunately they had water hookups shut off for winter (after we made our reservation, but before we arrived). So we had to venture back out to the design acted water fill campsite our first morning.

Sites were nice, but very much on top of each other, IMHO. I prefer more privacy for longer stays. Wouldn't want to be there in peak season.

They ask that you don't offload a full black/grey tank at your site, as the septic system can't handle it… in my experience, the dump site may not be able to handle it either. We were after another camper, and it began to overflow as we finished emptying our grey… neither having been completely full.

The picnic table and firepit were at the end of the site, not next to the RV pad/door, as I would've preferred.

A nice nature trail to the lake.

RV Park close to Joseph

This is a nice little RV park that is close to most things in the Joseph area.  There are several RV sites as well as tent sites.  There are also several sites that look like full time RVer's that live in the park.  The sites were a little close together, but they were able to move us after the first night so we had a little more privacy.  The bathrooms and showers were clean.  The campground was very quiet with great views of the mountains.  There is a little store onsite that also has games and books to barrow.

RV Park near Joesph

This review is only for the reservation portion and attitude of the on-site manager.  We made a reservation about 6 weeks before we were due to arrive.  We made them over the phone and we were told all was in good order by the gentlemen that answered the phone.  When the first part of our party showed up to check in we were told they had no idea about our reservation and they were full.   When asked what happened the guy said he must have answered the phone while out on the property and didn't write down the reservation.  Needless to say the panic set in.  This was during the busy summer season and things everywhere were booked up and had been for weeks.  When asked what he could do for us he said "Nothing"  He was reluctantly call around to try and find a spot which we were able to find.  He then told us "That place is a shit hole I wouldn't stay there"  We just replied "well we really don't have a choice since you didn't take down our reservation and people are already driving 5+ hrs to get here"

While the place does look nice I would make sure you get a reservation number or email confirmation after making a reservation.

Convenient, if not a bit overpriced

Stayed here one night, just passing through. Made reservation online, but wasn't assigned a site. When we arrived, the office was closed and there were no instructions on how to check in. We had to call the hotel front desk. the sites are ok. The bathrooms and showers were nice and clean. You can walk or take a shuttle to the casino. The campground has very bright perimeter lights that can be a bit intrusive.  We paid $45 for one night in an electric hookup spot. Seems a bit steep.

No frills, clean and organized

Nice, clean facility near downtown Walla Walla and convenient to the many wineries.

Quiet and comfortable

Spent 5 nights here in August. Was lucky enough to get a campsite right on the creek. Loved it!

Wide open spaces

We came in early October, and had lots of space to ourselves. Easy drive-through spots and friendly campers.

Cool place but no camping

There is a place nearby that offer camping but at 50$ didn't seem worth it.
