Date of Stay: September, 2012
Was searching the internet to find an RV park to stay at while visiting our children in Troutdale, when I found the site for the Sandy Riverfront RV Resort. We decided to stay here and we are glad we did. The park is nice and the people were friendly. There is plenty of pull through spaces along with back in spaces. Seems like about half the spots are seasonal guests who stay for a long duration. Our site was a pull through which was very level so setup was quick. They have internet and limited TV that comes with your site if you want them. The showers and restrooms are very nice and controlled with an entry code pad for safety. You are near the Sandy River and within walking distance of downtown Troutdale. We are the type of RV'ers who like to play 'tourist' and not sit around our site. So location was great. You do hear, in the distance, the planes that land at the Portland International Airport & the Troutdale Airport, and also the trains that go up/down the Columbia Gorge. But since we love trains and hear the airplanes sounds when ever we go up there, they didn't bother us at all. This is now the park of choice for when we go to the east Portland area and will definitely stay here again.
Date of Stay: August, 2012
We stayed 2 nights at Elkton RV Park. The view of the Umpqua River was wonderful and the access was easy walking down. But the spaces are so cramped that if you have a slide on both sides of your RV (which we do not, only on one side), you are not able to walk around your RV. We made a reservation over the phone and when we arrived we were not in the space that we were told we had reserved. But since most of the spaces were cramped anyway I guess that really didn't matter. You are not able to sit beside your RV under your awning. The only space for chairs or picnic tables is behind your RV and you only have a flat area big enough for a table and a couple of chairs. We were told over the phone that we could put a tent up in our space too as long as it didn't reach into the space beside us but since that was impossible, we had to rent a tent space at the end of the park for the couple who were with us. Which meant additional cost and inconvience. As far as the camp hosts and facilities at the RV park, we found that the hosts didn't seem to be real friendly. More business like then host like. The facilities were OK. A couple of restrooms, a laundry room, a central firepit and a gazebo. We didn't use any of these except the restroom. Did not see a shower room for tent campers, but didn't really look either.
