This park rescued us from another sub-par "resort". One of the managers spent a good hour going through and moving reservations to other spaces to accommodate us for 11 nights. We found the staff to be nothing short of inviting, happy, and enjoying their jobs. The restrooms are clean, the laundry rooms are clean, the pool and spa area were well maintained. The grounds were taken care of, green grass, lots of trees, 2 fenced areas for dogs with waste areas. Plenty of dumpsters near sites. A pond area you can walk around with a sand dog area beside it with a bench to sit and enjoy the view. Everything at our site worked as described. No issues with Wi-Fi or cable. Quiet neighbors, all of the staff seemed to live on site and care about the grounds. There is freeway noise but we adapted to it quickly. We will be back when visiting Eugene.

This park's web site does not represent the park's current condition. They have torn up around 50% of their sites to build a new church onto the lodge. They have closed the bathrooms in the lodge. They are now using 1 hotel room, and one partially finished bathroom in the back of the laundry room. All of the grass between the sites is dead. Construction starts at 6:45 in the morning. When registering you have to back up to turn around to get into your space, as their pull through road has been torn up for the church building. The pool looked nice at first glance. However, when we went to use it there was algae growing on the stairs that you could rub off with your foot. There was no smell of chlorine like you would expect in any public pool. The hot tub was large, and appeared to be full of sand. It turned out to be needing refinished and not really sand in the water. We were there at a busy time for the Eugene area looking for something quiet and peaceful, we were very shocked by the state of the park. When we expressed our concern at check-in the manager copped an attitude, stating the park was fully functional. There are no picnic tables, shade, or places to relax other than inside your rig. The Wi-Fi only worked inside of the lodge and was very slow then. The cable had a fuzzy connection. I highly advise taking these things into consideration before booking. We were lucky enough to get a manager at another park to move sites around on their books to make space for us at a good RV park. River Life Resort is far from a resort. It's certainly not as advertised.
