Learn more about this land: Campsites are gravel parking with park-like lawn, well kept, and surrounded by a small picnicking area with extra parking, porta potty, garbage receptical, BBQs, tables and chairs on sprawling grassy lawns shaded with 100 year old large trees. Perfect for a large group. We have a big tree swing and an adult size teeter totter for you to enjoy. There is a horseshoe area. The camping sites are back in only, so if you have trouble backing in, I am happy to help. Each spot has a fire pit with first firewood supplied, (additional be purchased) and a picnic table. Surrounding area is sagebrush, 2 miles from Wallowa National Forest with miles and miles of wilderness trails, lakes and Mountain fishing, ATVs, hiking, biking. You can ride your ATVs right from the camp. There is huckleberry and mushroom picking in early summer and late spring. Local wildlife consists of deer, elk, eagles and owls, pheasants, quail, wild turkeys, all kinds of birds, (even an occasional farm chicken may wander by) and coyotes and frogs calling at night. My friendly labs like to come say hi. Campsites are for tents or RVs. Our electric is shared among the campsites. Our water is from a wonderful deep cold well that’s piped to a shared outlet in the middle of the RV camp. Bring a hose to hook up, we have one if you need one. Guest Wi-Fi if you’re close to the store. Cell service is limited. I do allow generators if you are not sharing the park with anyone else. If you’re the only ones, no quiet time, if others are camping, quiet time is from 10:00 pm - 7:00 am. Site 1: largest fire pit, close to the power hook up, the most shady spot but still sunny, closest to the park. Site 2: A bit of shade, most of the day in sun. Closest to water hook up. Site 3: A Sunny site, a little late afternoon shade. A little more privacy as it’s the last spot. Farthest stretch for water and power, but I provide an extension power cord to it. Our little store has items you may need if you run out or forget something. We also sell regular gas.

With the kind help of the hosts, getting into our spot was easy. They offered firewood (too bad it was raining the next day), water & electric, and a cute little store to grab some snacks. Adorable dogs that were super friendly and my toddler enjoyed feeding the ducks with the corn provided. We were the only campers there although there are 3 sites and it was quiet and the stars were amazing! We didn’t spend much time at the site as we were in town on a mission, but really enjoyed the rural surroundings and hospitality!

What a peaceful and wonderful evening and night. Lori and her family are welcoming and the site is perfectly quiet at night. I woke to dawn and ducks, deer, cows, and beautiful clouds. So happy to have found this sweet spot :)

This place was so much fun! Tons of history and Lori was more than willing to share all the stories! We had the place all to ourselves. They let us use wood for our fire. We got coffee every morning from the general store. The doggies and ducks kept us entertained! We also saw plenty of deer morning and night. Definitely will go back!

We had a delightful time at Lori's place, learning about the history of Pondosa. The site was gravel, with easy access to power and water. Lori was very accomodating and met us when we arrived.

Great one night stop along the way. Although Lori wasn't there, her brother welcomed us and got us settled in.
