Wallowa River Rv Park

We are now situated in Wallowa at the Wallowa River RV park. There are several other full time RV'rs who spend the summers here with us.
The park is located along the Wallowa River at the edge of the town of Wallowa. The river is available for fishing and the park has about 800 feet of river frontage. The new owners, Debbie and Clarence Aherins and their dog Maggie, just completed remodeling the showers and they are beautiful and the best I've ever seen in an RV park anywhere in the country.

They have added a small raised garden area where long term visitors can grow vegetables and enjoy gardening with the other park folks.

Debbie loves a potluck and will often host one in which all guests are invited to participate. Guests can meet one another and make new friends. These are totally at random and anyone or anything can be the catalyst to get one going. Just tell people it's happening and we all show up.

The park is also next to land owned by the Nez Perce Indians where the annual Tamakaliks Celebration is held each July. This is a friendship celebration and everyone is invited. The Nez Perce, Umatilla, Warm Springs and other tribes set up Teepee's to live in and have drumming and dance competitions. There are also friendship dances in which everyone is invited and encouraged to participate. Vendors sell jewelry and other gifts and souvenirs.

While all children are welcome at Wallowa River RV park, it is more suited to older campers without kids. It is a quiet setting, with mowed lawns along the river, and all the sites are pull through sites. There are a total of 31 spaces that rent by the night for $30.00 dollars, by the week for $165.00 dollars, and by the month for $300.00 dollars plus electric. A few older sites still only have 30amp power but many are both 30 and 50amp. Time wise, the park is about an hour from LaGrande, 30 minutes from Enterprise, and about 45 minutes from Joseph and Wallow Lake.

If you are interested in staying in a place with beautiful scenery, friendly people, and a quiet and peaceful atmosphere, this just might be what you are looking for.

To get here just come to Wallowa. Take the Whiskey Creek Road turn off at the east end of town and cross the Wallowa river. The park will be on your left just as you cross the bridge. Tell Debbie or Clarence that Dwain sent you!

The park address is 503 Whiskey Creek Road, Wallowa, Or. 97885 PH/Fax 541-886-7002.
