This is a great RV Park located behind a well-kept motel and nestled at the foot of the Walowa Mountains. Has immaculately groomed landscape and clean, clean showers and restrooms and also provides free access to motel ice machine. Out back-in site was a bit tough to get into as the interior road in front of the site is relatively narrow with railroad ties as boundaries, making it difficult to make the necessary turns. Shade trees are still small, so limited shade is available for most sites. Near new picnic tables, really nice showers and an extremely helpful host/0wner were highlights. Good view of the mountains from most sites assuming the smoke moves out. We camped at Mountain View Motel & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

It is just about a mile from Joseph, Oregon. At the Joseph Visitor's Center pick up the free brochure providing a self-guided driving tour of many of the historic barns in the area. We spent two days enjoying the beauty of the barns and lush farm lands. Don't miss visiting Sunrise Iron, a large collection of historic farm equipment on one of the farms highlighted in the brochure. Call ahead to be sure the owner will be available to show you his goodies! Free--but donations are welcomed. Amazing.

We were invited by friends to join them at this park. We're self contained and don't use the facilities, except for an occasional shower. We stayed weeknights in mid-August in our 25 foot MH. This is a small, meticulously maintained RV park. The reasonably-sized sites are lined up in a horseshoe behind the hotel with a nice view of the Wallawa mountains. Most sites are gravel, a few are grass and all are level. Some sites are shady while others are in full sun. Most sites are water and electric only. Dump station available. The showers were clean with plenty of hot water. The park wifi was good. There is good ATT and Verizon coverage. The park manager was friendly and helpful. We read older reviews and had a very different experience. The number of sites had been reduced in the past few years. New ownership? We camped at Mountain View Motel & RV Park in a Motorhome.

The town of Joseph with shops and restaurants is 2 miles away. There are hiking trails in the Wallowas, ask for trail info at the Ranger Station. There is swimming at Wallowa Lake, 5 miles from the RV park.

Scott Hathorn, owner at Mountain View Motel & RV Park responded to this review

Howdy "dsvt" and thanks. Your comment, "...number of sites has been reduced in the past few years..." leads me to conclude that you'd RV'd here in the past -- so, you no doubt have appreciation of all the improvements made since I bought the place in Aug 2011. And YES, only about 1/2 the sites that the previous owner packed like sardines. Now much more spacious with graded / graveled sites and green lawn between for better experience.
You might also appreciate my frustration that RV Park Reviews has refused to delete the "older reviews" during the former owner's reign, despite several requests.!
Thanks again, Scott

Beware of owner/manager. We called ahead twice as a courtesy on the day of our reservation. When we arrived, the owner was clearly upset and began interrogating me about what took me so long to get there. My first attempt to calm the situation was to tell him the truth that it takes a long time to drag a heavy trailer across the state; especially with 6 small children who need frequent stops. That wasn't good enough for him. Clearly and visibly upset, he said, calling by my first name multiple times in very rude and condescending tones, "You did something, what was it!!" My next tactic was to tell him it was none of his business what I did before or after I left his park. At that point, he got belligerent and through me out of the office. I was left with a road weary family with no place to go for some reason that still baffles me to this day. Apparently taking more than 4 hours to drive from the Boise area to this park is a capital offense in this owner's mind. It was like a mix between the Twilight Zone and Bates Motel. Please - avoid the Mountain View Motel and RV Park at all possible. The guy is unstable. We Did Not Stay In This Park. We camped at Mountain View Motel & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park has a number of negatives that prevents me from recommending it. 1) There are only about 9 FHU and they were all taken by long-term RVers. The rest of the sites are water and electric, a few of the sites have cable. There is only one price for RVers no matter what type of site you get. When we called, the owner led us to believe that we would get a FHU and we did not. 2) The owner allows his two dogs to run freely throughout the campground, barking and defecating all over the grass. Watch where you step. 3) We happen to stay during an event in Joseph. The owner allows tent camping and crammed as many people as possible into the grassy area. 4) The owner encourages you to dump your grey water onto your site to help keep it green. 5) The bathrooms and showers, while clean, were very rustic. The toilets wobble and the dividers and shower curtains don’t provide much privacy. Finally, there are no rules in this campground: nothing about quiet hours, etc. The owner has a laissez-faire attitude regarding rules. We camped here in a 30’ rig, and if you can guess, would not camp here again. We camped at Mountain View Motel & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is NOT a full-service park as advertised. Most of the sites do not have sewer connections, although management will bring portable pump-out equipment upon request. They even ask that you dump gray water on their grassy site as a form of irrigation! We were inadvertently here during Chief Joseph Days rodeo (busiest week of the year), and Rfs were jammed into every possible space (i.e, most spaces were “double parked”). The WiFi is poor, and disconnects repeatedly (most likely due to the excessive volume of campers). Dogs are allowed to run free (particularly the owner’s). It is a very primitive park in a relatively remote and beautiful area, and does have a nice view of the Wallowa Mountains. With fewer occupants, the park is probably acceptable, although there are minimal shower facilities available. We camped 4 nights. We camped at Mountain View Motel & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
