Fish House Inn and RV Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 September 2017 via mobile

This small RV Park (only 8 sites) is clean and welcoming with ample space between site, lots of green grass, fruit trees and a few wandering ducks and chickens. Restrooms are clean and WiFi is reasonably serviceable (given you're in the central Oregon desert). I would give 5 stars but for two minor issues: expensive laundry and no pull through sites, only back ins. Even so, we would stay here again.

Stayed: August 2017, travelled with family

I agree with a all the positive reviews. If you like some entertainment, ask for the spot near the duck/chicken coop. So enjoyed watching the mother/daughter team clean the coop daily. All the while respecting our quiet and privacy. Then the variety of chickens and ducks (about 8 total) were let out to wander the grounds, but in no way aggressive or noisy. No rooster, so never was bothered by any noise. Just felt a continuation of the farm history/family the property had in the past.

My family has been going to the Fish House Inn for many years. Being from the area originally, I feel a close tie to this beautiful valley and all it has to offer. We have always been welcomed with open arms as family at the Fish House Inn. The grounds are kept beyond immaculate, bathrooms are always clean and you are right next to a mini-mart and a grocery store. There is so much to see and do in the area like the John Day fossil beds, trout and small mouth bass fishing, hiking, biking, swimming in amazing swimming holes on the South Fork of the John Day River...... or just flat out relaxing in the sunny Eastern Oregon sunshine. This place gets a an 10+ on a scale of 1-10.

Fish House Inn puts all the fears of nervous campers to rest. If you think you have to lug along water, bathroom and laundry essentials, food, ice, coffee, homemade pies, beer, liquor--nope. It's all here in this surprising gem of a camping location/RV park/inn with rooms for rent. You can almost not rough it at all if you bring a blow-up mattress (the electrical outlet is onsite for inflating the darn thing). If all this luxury makes you think you're actually "glamping", well maybe you are. The proprietors are the kind of young couple you'd like to have as neighbors back home. The town of Dayville rolled out the welcome mat for eclipse viewers, and I suspect they are just as hospitable at any other time of the year. Get away from it all and stay here.

Room Tip: We pitched a tent in the camping area. Some of us slept right on the grass; it was so soft and well...
