Location - The RV park is located on Hwy. 26 in Dayville, OR. This was a convenient base camp to explore the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. It is an easy walk to the Dayville mercantile store, café and gas station. The park is located on the South Fork of the John Day River. The river is more like a fast flowing creek. It is approximately 20 feet wide.
Access - The RV Park entrance is at the Dayville City Park. The office is located in an old church building on the property. The owner also lives here.
Cleanliness - The park is clean with nice newer showers.
Site Quality - A phrase that comes to mind when describing the sites is "mixed-bag". There are electrical connections for sites 3 - 6, but they are only 20 amp. The electrical outlets are located near the front of the sites. It took the full length of our 25 foot cord to reach the electrical outlet. There is a single electrical pedestal near sites 7 - 10, but a long extension cord is needed to reach it. There is a dump station and potable water at the office, but no water or sewer at the sites. Sites 3 - 6 are right on the river, but branches from the large trees hang down to the ground and obscure views of the water. The trees do provide nice shade coverage through most of the day. The parking pads are gravel and mostly level. Sites 7 - 9 are located off of the river in a mostly sunny area. Site 10 is off of the water but does have shade. There are nice picnic tables at each site. Rock fire rings are located at each site, but fires are not allowed in this area during much of the summer. I don't remember seeing sites 1 or 2. The best site is site 6.
Noise - There was minimal road noise from Hwy. 26. There is pleasant noise from the river and there are lots of birds in the area.
