“A perfect place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

My husband and I stopped in to see if they had any tent sights and luckily enough, they had two open and for $20.00 a night, we jumped on it. The tent sight was in the back of the RV park and the view was of the magnificent Wallowa Mountains with a meadow in front that had horses and deer wondering through while we were there. We also had a little creek running through the back which lulled us to sleep each night. The $20.00 included nice bathrooms with hot showers and free firewood. We just had to chop it. The owner even brought us a nice portable firepit for the fire! The park was really quite and family friendly with children riding their bikes around and there is a big area in the middle of the park for ball playing, etc... We truely loved it and will definitly be back time after time!!! Oh and it's real close to Enterprise, Oregon and Joseph, Oregon, both really nice towns and Wallowa Lake too! Enjoy!!!

We really needed a good night's sleep and we got it here. Very comfortable and clean. Room was well set up with a nifty deck out back with beautiful view of the snow capped Wallowas. Fun and friendly owners. About a mile from town, in a very beautiful country setting. Made us feel at home.

We had been camping in the wilderness for the week and really just wanted a place where we could plug in our camper and catch a shower. It was fine. Bathrooms weren't incredibly clean, but they weren't horrible either. The horses next door were nice, as was the manager. The roosters, however, would be lovelier in a soup.

Bad experience camping here! Complained to the manager about the loud party next to us, they partied til about 2 am and we were told quiet time was at 10 pm. He then told them we complained. Thankfully they were sort of nice about it (it could have turned out differently) and came over to apologize then informed us they would be loud all weekend. The next night the manager put a couple next to us who turned their car radio on at 12:30 til 2 am then got in a fight with lots of foul language. The last night was the worst, when that couple got really drunk and at 10:30 pm started punching each other, the guy was yelling "just kill me, you blanking blank", came out of the tent with blood on his face and shirt. VERY SCARY! Again we complained and the manager spoke with the guy then told us to come get him if they started fighting again and off he went to bed. Needless to say didn't we sleep much that night for fear of what might happen. The guy got in his car about 3 AM and revved the engine for about 20 min. We thought he was going to run us or his girlfriend over. It was a long drive home the next day with very little sleep from the whole weekend. We tried not to let this bad experience cloud our whole trip to Joseph as there are lots of nice folks there and the country is beautiful. This was not a restful or relaxing (or safe) place, I won't stay there again!

Scott H, Owner at Mountain View Motel & RV Park, responded to this review, October 17, 2012
I recall this unfortunate 2011 incident and the 2 women campers (sisters, I think).
When they checked in on Friday evening of that particular local Event Weekend, I suggested a quiet, creekside site with shadetrees in the back of the park -- an area generally preferred by tent campers and RVers alike for its scenery and serenity. Despite my recommendation, these customers inquired about an "overflow" site (no water spigot) in one end of the sideyard that would be closer to the shower house. I apprised them about a party that was planned for the other end of the sideyard and, again, recommended the creekside site. BUT they insisted.
So, I visited "The "Partyers" and reminded them about our 10:00 PM quiet time curfew.

The next day (Saturday), "The Camper Women" complained to me about "The Partyers". I again suggested the quiet creekside site and even offered to help them relocate their camp. BUT NO, they refused. So, I discussed the situation with "The Partiers" and asked them to keep it down. Several of "The Partyers" personally apologized to "The Camper Women" and, indeed, quieted down their partying that Saturday evening.

Unfortunately, there was no way to foresee that the couple who camped in the site next to "The Camper Women" that Saturday evening would become intoxicated and belligerent! When "The Partyers" reported this apparent domestic disturtbance to me at ~11:00 PM, I immediately investigated and told "The Domestics" that they needed to settle down ASAP or I would call in the Sheriff. They assured me that they'd settled down peaceably for the night.

THIS was indeed a series of upsetting and unfortunate events for "The Camper Women", "The Partyers", "The Domestics", for me, and the Mt View Motel & RV Park.

In 2012, "The Partyers" returned BUT sadly "The Camper Women" and "The Domestics" didn't.
