Welcome to the Wild West! Pendleton is a rodeo town, an Oregon Trail stopover, a town brimming with history and character...

Our park offers a full range of amenities to accommodate your family or group's stay. Enjoy the unimpeded view of the Blue Mountains while relaxing by the propane fire on our clubhouse patio, treat yourself to an ice cream or a cold drink from our onsite Kampstore, take a jaunt down the hill to the historical town of Pendleton with its myriad of intriguing offerings...  We are particularly proud of our personable, friendly, and accommodating staff, and the immaculate cleanliness of our bathrooms, laundry facility, and park. 

Pendleton owes its establishment to the Oregon Trail emigrants of the 1840s, who traveled across the rugged Blue Mountains to reach the West. Today, those same rugged mountains and the beautiful Columbia River are just minutes from your comfortable base camp at this Journey KOA. Spend the day exploring Pendleton's charming galleries and shops or the world-famous Pendleton Woolen Mills, which has been distributing locally made blankets and tapestries since 1909. Don't miss the Pendleton Underground Tours. Nearby, the Wildhorse Resort & Casino hosts many renowned entertainers and events throughout the year. Home to the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation, the Pendleton area is rich in history and culture. Enjoy the comfortable facilities at the campground, including free Wi-Fi and cable TV. Max pull thru: 65 feet. Your hosts: Jon & Kana Smith.

Pendleton Underground Tours

The Pendleton Underground is one of the most fascinating tours in town! Check out the businesses literally carved out UNDER the historic downtown blocks of Pendleton... Chinese laborers lived there while working on the railroads, illicit businesses (brothels and speakeasies) cropped up there, complete with hidden escape tunnels... The volunteer guides are fantastic storytellers, so you're in for a great tour! 

It's a good idea to call ahead and reserve a space on one of the tours.
