Well located for overnight or longer. Boat facilities nearby. We are partial to state parks and found this to be better than many as sites are spacious and have decent separation from your neighbor. Has both pull thru and back in. Nature trail leads to beach with picnic kiosks and more. Easy on and off I-15. We'd stay again.

This is just a back-in only park. Utilities all at rear so most folks won't be able to use sewer unless they have extra hoses. Park is set back from state highway a little, but there is some road noise. The one good thing that can be said about it is that it is a couple blocks away from the River Rock Cafe - a great place to eat. But then so is the other park in town and we'd pick Hoover's competition next time.

We timed our visit just as Labor Day was ending, otherwise reservations would have to have been done well in advance. A number of sites are nearly lake front (some have tent sites between RV sites and lake. Though you can say that many sites are big rig friendly, the roads to Hurricane Creek are narrow. Nice beach for swimming but bring sandals. Staff helpful despite computer being down. Amazing to look up out over water in distance and see barges being pushed up the Kentucky River. Water pressure is high so use a reducer. Great COE spot and you bet we'd come again.

We usually stay in State or COE parks but this was the Labor Day weekend and we wanted to be off the highway. This park was all that others had rated. Close to most attractions (& only 1/2 hour down the road from the National Corvette Museum and GM's 'Vette plant) yet with a rural feel. Landscaping is a cut above and spaces are very generous considering this a commercial park. Can walk to several good restaurants, short hop off Interstate and lots to see if you aren't into caving.

We called ahead as it had been a while since the campground was reviewed. It's still there and if you like low key, this fits the bill. You can walk around the town of Maybell in less than 15 minutes. There is a convenience store with fuel, (including diesel) and a cafe next door. We took a non hookup site but had if you wanted to pay $5 more, you could have electricity. The electrical sites are small but since this city park is lightly used, you could easily park and straddle two sites. There's even a modest kids' playground. We'd stop here again.

Last review was too long ago to be on the money. Nightly rate is with senior discount less local taxes for a riverfront site. Though old, park seems maintained well enough. Has both pull thru & back in; most are pretty close together. There are a number of riverfront sites and there are a number of long term folks. Park is easy on and off fwy however turns can be a little tight within park. Little freeway noise at back but more at front. Some train noise. Seems to be a place that is popular with fishermen as river provides instant fishing access and a boat launch. Park has a very modest store and a cafe that offers breakfast and lunch. Since the Kalama City Park RV park is now a day park only, this isn't a bad alternative. Park management seemed very helpful

This is a recently constructed park so everything seems to work well and hookups are well located. Staff is very eager to make sure you are happy. An RV park resort it isn't, though. No pool, nothing for kids but there were some activities in the rec room. What made this attractive for us may turn others off. It was a block off the highway so traffic noise was minimal, there is nothing around it but it is great for birdwatching and it was about a half mile walk to water. All sites are concrete pads, so you are high and dry but the ground surrounding can puddle up pretty good after a rain. It does make a good base for exploring the Corpus Christi region. WiFi was excellent. We'd stay again.

Heppner is remote, yes, but it has a gem of a little RV park. The park overlooks Willow Creek Lake and dam. Tho the property appears to be Army Corp of Engineers, the operators is a local parks district. At first glance, the park has an odd layout but once you drive thru you can see that all sites are pull thru. Tents have separate area. Of the 23 spaces 9 have sewer. Ordinarily a popular fishing lake, a blue/green algae infestation has put the lid on fishing and other water activities this time of year. The small town is a county seat so there are other things going on to provide entertainment including a good museum, rodeo grounds and friendly folks. Park is open March thru October.

Can only add one more more positive remark to what others have already found: there is a great 14+ mile paved bike/walking trail that begins right outside the park. Best bet coming from the S or the W - use I-215 N to get to the park. Coming up I-15 requires overshooting the park then getting back on the freeway SB to the next exit which is I-215

Others have noted the same that we noticed - sites are close and some a difficult to get in, however we found the staff accommodating when we called before coming. We were here on a cold and drizzly mid Oct weekend and there were activities for kids and adults. Additionally the Mill Bridge & Village really is worth a look as are the other structures on this historic location. And if it's Amish you want, you won't be able to count the buggies that travel past. If you don't mind walking on a moderately trafficked you can even walk to up to one of the better smorgasbord restaurants (Millers). We'd stay again.

Facilities are top notch. We stayed here four nights. There is far more to do in this region than we had time for - lots of history, geologic features, fishing, birds galore etc. The CG is about a mile off the highway so there is no noise. Tho there is no pool, swimming is available at Ana Reservoir about 1/4 mile away. This is a little oasis in the desert. The host was off site but responsive when needed. We'll be back.

As earlier visitors have noted this a non reservation CG but doesn't get the traffic on 395 to usually be a concern. Others have commented accurately on the amenities. Spring and Fall are great times to be here as Goose Lake is about 200 yards away and the air and water are full of migratory birds. Not a bad base to use to explore the region. Park has added some interior trails since we were here last.

This is a very clean, well groomed park that shows the owner's TLC. The husband and wife team (with their two dogs) made us (& our dog) feel at home. Spaces are wide enough apart that your outdoor living is comfortable. The grounds look as though the PGA tour could be played here. A word of caution - if you think you can roll thru here after checking the sights, you'd be wrong. Though we stayed 2 nites we could have stayed at least 2 more. There are too many things of interest to zip through. Put the drive (& the cities) on OR Hwy 19 on your list of side trips, as well as the Painted Hills and John Day Fossil Beds Nat. Monument.
