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.

Big Firs Site 1
It was late in the day when I reserved the space but waited for what I felt was too long for a response so I cancelled the stay and Hipcamp honered the cancellation and stated that a refund would occur. Still no refund as of yet 07/09/2024. No negative results otherwise.

Private and lovely
Great location! We enjoyed the privacy of the property (we were the only ones at the grassy sites during our stay). The nature and variety of birds was lovely. We enjoyed going into Baker City to visit the Oregon Trail Heritage Museum (which was only about 30min away). Overall, a great spot for those looking to stay at a more private, quiet place while still being near town/attractions.

Sunny Site 3
Great peaceful spot for a camp
Great spot located in a peaceful valley. Nice campsites that the owner worked hard to make convenient for us. Lovely ponds with dicks and a great sunset. Very, very quiet area in the country.

1 Night in a Ghost Town
We arrived later than we expected, Lori was wait in for us and welcoming! Her site is ~ 15 miles out off the highway; however, it is quiet, pastoral and peaceful. We had to leave early, but would have enjoyed staying longer.

A small group of friends reserved and enjoyed Pondosa's camping sites and features. Very welcoming owners and store has extra supplies and food if needed.

RV or tent Site 2
Pondosa was a perfect small group camping site for a bunch of quilting friends. The yurt not only provided sleeping quarters but a dry place to sew for the group. The RV sites were clean and stocked with fire wood.
