Do you take RVs?

Yes! We offer RV spaces for the low price of $10 a night and $295 a month. We take RVs by appointment on a one-week minimum stay. Water, sewer, garbage and cable TV service is included in our rent. Keep in mind, however, that we are not a traditional overnight RV park and we don’t offer showers or laundry facilities.

Is there any chance your park will close?

No, and we back it up. If you happen purchase a new home through The Foster Group you will receive a no-closure guarantee. If we close the park during your lifetime, we will buy your home back at the assessed value, or pay to have it moved and set up in any community in Oregon. Your choice. Guaranteed in writing. Of course, it’s easy to make this promise because we’re never going to close this community.

What size homes can you accommodate?

Elgin Mobile Home Park allows mostly singlewide manufactured homes, but we currently have one doublewide space available. We also allow RVs on a short-term basis. There are several home sellers in Eastern Oregon that provide the latest line of new and custom homes.

Do you allow pets?

Pets are allowed under limited conditions. You may have a small dog under 25 pounds, but no larger. This rule is enforced without exception. Cats are welcome. Prrrrr.

If I apply for a space, do you run a credit check?

Yes. Prospective residents must fill out an application. We look for residents with good credit, but you don’t necessarily have to have perfect credit.
