Not sure what the attraction to this park is. It is basically a state park...crowded, dirt/gravel sites, no cable or wifi. Trees caught roof while backing in. Site was very nice size but with all the vehicles parked in adjacent sites backing in was a challenge. Nice I guess for overnight but not the type of park we prefer.

The entrance to the park is a steep driveway compared to most, but very doable. The first sites are a little rough and look like permanent residents. There is a row of sites that are along the river and basically quite nice. Not much here. 10 miles north to Lincoln City or 10 miles south to Depoe Bay. No wifi and cable is poor quality. The maintenance guy was very helpful. Propane was $2.70 gal. We saw lots of herons on the docks and an occasional seal swimming in the river raising havoc with the fishermen. Looking for a rustic park on the river, this is that.

This is basically an "Honor System" park. No employees working the park. You simply pull-in, find a spot and drive to the motel to register. We did secure a space by phone but no specific site. Nice area to walk your dog. A bit tight if you extend an awning but doable. There is a 3ft wide strip of grass separating each site. There is a covered BBQ area with picnic tables. If you like casinos then this park is fine. Nothing else to do in the immediate area.

We have traveled to this park for many years. It has been updated and sites re-mapped a bit. The office has been remodeled and a small "food truck" offering a few seafood combinations. The hookups also have been improved and cable TV is now available. The ocean beach is still spectacular. Then why the low reviews? The sites are still dirt and sand and also a bit closer since the updates. You can't predict OR Coast weather and fog is normal. Once the fog rolls in, the park is a muddy mess. You can't cook outside as everything is dripping wet. If you have pets they will need a bath after every outing. And...the price is now much higher. For those that don't mind the tight quarters and muddy mess, this park still offers close proximity to the ocean beach and the seaport charm of Charleston. For us, we will opt for somewhere less dirty with more predictable weather.

Difficult to rate "value" as it can be so subjective. For us, the $75 per night was a real stretch to our budget but what we received for the money were the things we appreciate in a park. Staff were excellent. Sites are large with updated hookups etc. Park is paved making it very clean. Large area for pets. 50 steps to the ocean beach which is breathtaking. Wifi good...cable good...all is good when you camp here! We will be back.

Upon arrival we were told a mistake with our reservation had been made and we could not have site 20 we reserved. Gave us an inside site instead...no adjustment on the fee. The park is very small and sites very cramped. Our neighbors awning almost went over our truck. No where to walk a dog although the park was full of them. Three St.Bernards deposited in our site as I was BBQing dinner. Garbage dumpsters are overflowing with spillage on the ground. Sites not level and much of the concrete is broken. The park appears neglected although very busy. Not having a river site will limit outside activities. Nothing to do here. No where to walk your dog. There is access to the beach along the river. We will not return.

We have used this park for many years and it remains one of our favorites. So much depends on what your expectations are. This park is basic but the location is great! We take advantage of the Methow River for tubing and relaxing...a short walk from any campsite. The owners are most personable people and great camp hosts. Cable TV...there is none. In fact there is no cable anywhere in the Methow Valley. This is a none issue with us. A very serene and quiet park. We woke up to deer grazing in the park quite often. People also like to fish this river if that interests you. We look forward to our next visit!

We stayed at this park on a whim while traveling home from southern Oregon. This park seems to have been carved out of a hay field and is surrounded by such on three sides. What has potential to be a nice little park, has fallen short for our camping preferences. There is no shade (100's today), no landscaping, and what lawn is present is not watered or otherwise cared for. There were three dead field mice on our "lawn" which I assume were carrion for the local birds. The RV park is part of the motel also on site. There is a small outdoor pool which is nice but not even an umbrella for a bit of shade when needed. There is nothing here to do but sit in your rig which is fine. Kids would have a difficult time. However, if you drive into Harrisburg there is a great Chinese restaurant and public access to the riverfront perfect for swimming and tubing. We actually stayed a couple of days just to enjoy a splash in the river. River Bend is 6+ miles off I-5 but an easy drive. We would stay here again if in the area.

A very nice State Park! Very busy, lots of traffic, kids, bicycles, & dogs! Our site was great...back in the G loop. The site was surprisingly private! Most sites seemed quite large. We were in no way disappointed but probably will not return to this specific park.

This was our second visit to Oceanside, the first was two years ago. We stay at this park because of the beach. The park itself is older and showing wear. Sites are gravel and/or sand. We liked our site: had a nice fire ring, picnic table and easy access to the beach. Wi-Fi did not work during our visit. Garbage dumpsters were always full. We enjoy the drive down the Cape Arago Highway to view all the seals and the occassional whale. Be very careful about the local sea food fare: lunch was $40 and horrible. Propane is available as are other staple items at their office store. If you don't mind a more "rustic" park, this is an excellent place to enjoy the ocean. All the campers were friendly and helpful.

This is an awesome park! The friendliest people we have dealt with! Very well organized and laid out. One thing that struck me as odd...with all the planning and expense to make a first class park, the sewer connections fit none of the plethora of fittings I have to make the required air-tight seal. It is simply a pipe with a flip top lid. Looking around the park, no one seemed to have a fitting that worked. I simply stuck my hose down the pipe a few inches. No threaded end, rubber donuts were to big, the only thing that would go far enough into the hole to prevent worry was the hose itself! Don't let that whine stop you from staying here! It's very nice.

Here is our perspective on this park...It is new, paved, nice grass areas, excellent hook-ups, and very clean. For us, a great overnight park. There is a nice pool, covered picnic area, laundry, showers etc. Might be a little "stuffy". They have a 10-year rule, a "three strikes you're out" policy (not sure what that is about) and they do ask about any criminal history on their check-in form. The story given me, for what it's worth, regarding that is they are trying to keep pedophiles out by asking for the required lawful disclosure. We found the park very easily from the off ramp of I-5. If you look at their web site map, it is a "no-brainer". The gentleman working the front desk was very personable and helpful. No issues here! We enjoyed our stay!

We stayed the weekend of the Anacortes "Oyster Run" and really enjoyed this park. Despite the continuous roar of hundreds of Harley Davidson's on the nearby highway, the park was surprisingly quiet. Employees were personable and helpful. The facilities were great. Our site was very spacious with a nice split-rail fence between sites, fire pit, picnic table, full utilities 30/50 amp, and cable with 99 channels. Lots to do in this area... Deception Pass, LaConner, Swinomish Casino, ferry to the San Juans etc. We will use this park again! Without a doubt, the best in the area!

We just spent 5 days at Riverbend and had an AWESOME time. Park owners are personable and helpful. The sites were very well maintained with enough room to use awnings, set up BBQ and lawn chairs etc. with picnic tables and fire rings at each site. Laundry room was small but I believe there was one at each end of the park. We didn’t use the showers but the facility looked new or recently remodeled. The office had a small store with a few staples, ice, etc. Propane was available on-site. TV had limited channels, I believe there were 5 to choose from. There was a large Commons area for children to play and a small playground for the younger ones. There was a nice covered BBQ area for larger gatherings. We really enjoyed the access to the Methow River and spent hours on inner-tubes sometimes tethered to a rock and other times simply floating with the current. The water was warm (for us older people) and the river shallow enough (about 2 feet or so) you could walk to the opposite side. I was not familiar with the area. Winthrop is the first “major” town over the pass from the west side. About 5 minutes east of the park is the town of Twisp. Diesel was .50 a gallon cheaper than Winthrop. Twisp also had a much nicer grocery store! This was a nice quiet and comfortable park. We are already making reservations for later this fall and next year. Now from a female point of view…The little store had much more than just ice and propane. It was well stocked with cute shirts, hats and other gift items. I particularly liked the selection of gift soaps. There were cards to buy and movies to rent. I too, enjoyed the piece and quiet along with the pristine setting. The river was indeed clean and warm enough that one needn’t worry about cardiac arrest when wading in. We are in our late fifties and frolicked around in the water for hours like a couple of preteens. The grocery store in Twisp was very nice…great deli, with gourmet cheeses and coffee. Nice wine selection, even an end of summer flower pot sale.

This is the second time we have stayed at this park. Our first experience was much better! Although we reserved for our 30ft 5th wheel, we were given a very small site (#201) which was very unlevel, no grassy area to set a chair (in fact, no room to set a chair) and no room to extend the awning in this no shade site. Wal-Mart would have been more comfortable! The only place to set up our BBQ was under the kingpin. No possible way to park our truck at the site. It was necessary to use the parking area a few hundred feet away. Understand there are many nice sites in this park although all are small and quite unlevel. We won't stay here again unless we get a pull-through site or one with more amenable living quarters.
