This is more a trailer park than RV park. Sewer is for long term, monthly, only. There is never anyone in the office. Fill out the envelope and drop it in the slot. I was told when I called that the shower was free, it is not. I was also told you could get satellite reception from a rooftop mount dish, also not true. The stream is a rockbed, bone dry. Sites are not being maintained. Many firepits have beer cans and trash in them. Rule says dogs must be leashed, dogs are loose in park. 5mph speed limit is not enforced. Lots of dust. We enjoy trains, but this is ridiculous. It feels like the freight trains are coming right through the living room. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great place stay! Nice area with great views and lots of activities nearby. The atmosphere is pretty casual. The sites are well spread out and there are trees and grass throughout. It is a pretty large place and there is a section for more permanent spaces, but don't let that dissuade you. I believe it is first come first served and you pay by dropping in a slot box. We found two great spots that backed up to the creek and had a great time with the kids. The train goes by every few hours and it is close enough to be pretty loud but not close enough to rattle the dishes. Most of the sites have power and water but no sewer. There is a dump station near the exit. Oh, and we got pretty good cell reception there. And there is a a nice park area across the highway with a store/gas station. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

The address is listed as mile post 37, Highway 14, North Bonneville, Washington 98639. It is located on a small side road, just past a concrete yard item factory. (Where they make birdbaths, concrete yard ornaments, etc.) The RV park is about 3 or 4 miles west of the Bonneville dam visitor entrance on highway 14. It’s a right turn for west bound travelers. The place is an older park, but very nice. Campsites are separated with trees and greenery. (No crammed in, side by side RV’s here) There’s lots of shade with old growth pines and firs. It’s very quiet, with few permanent residents at the upper end. There are a lot of antiques in the clubhouse. You can ask for a tour as the clubhouse is for rent by RV groups. There’s also a lot of antiques hanging on the outside of the main building too, and other things to see such as an early 1900’s ‘’oil engine’’ (early diesel) that has 5 foot flywheels. (And rated a measly 25 HP) Access is good. We have a 40 foot diesel coach, and getting parked and set up is not hard with most of the sites in the middle row. The lead in roads are wide. There is 30 amp electrical with water and sewer at most sites. The price is $20 a night. This park makes a great base for touring the dam, walking the Corps. of Engineers nature trail, (by the dam) climbing Beacon Rock, or hiking the Pacific Crest trail. There’s lots of things to see and do in this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
You are on the banks of the Columbia River, but this sliver of land is wedged between the main highway and the train tracks. Dozens of trains day and night come through: crossing is nearby so lots of whistle blowing. No antenna or satellite reception. Convenient location to Stevenson: had a great brunch at the Skamania Lodge a short distance away. Great view from the Lodge. There are lots of campgrounds around if you know the names of the little towns around. Oregon is across the river and a nice boat ride is available from Cascade of the Locks: a lovely little town across the river. We camped here in a Motorhome.
