1 Park near Aurora, Oregon
Apr 2016 - $35.00
This park had lots of permanent people staying there, and the sites were too close together. We found it to be too small for a big rigs with tows to maneuver around to get to the sites. We were put into a 'pull-thru' which was more like two sites side-by-side. We had to disconnect our tow vehicle to get out of the site, and reconnect outside the RV park.
The outlets were old and they required an adapter for 30 amp service which we didn't have.
Pool was small and appeared to be closed.
They don't have a dog park but there was a nice grassy area across the street where we took our dogs.
We would've been better off boondocking somewhere. - Living-the-Dream

We stayed in the northern half of the RV park. Even though it's close to I-5, we didn't have an issue with traffic noise and we're both pretty light sleepers. The proximity to Portland means that a lot of the sites are taken up by full-timers working construction in the area. It looked like a lot of the sites in the southern half were taken up by some pretty rough looking RVs. My husband stayed in the RV while I went in to check in. We were about third in line so our options on where to park were limited. He saw a car in line behind him so moved our rig so the guy could get by. The guy got pretty nasty, flipping us off and throwing gravel with his car when he went around us. We later saw his car parked at one of the sites obviously used by a long term camper. Unfortunately this kind of behavior can happen when parks open themselves up to full timers. They become territorial and view short stay guests as intruders. We were just staying overnight so wanted a pull thru space that allowed us to camp without disconnecting. The lack of wifi wasn't as big a problem for us as it is for other campers who don't have smart phones or tablets. We had no problem finding a good satellite signal. Probably the biggest positive was the lady working in the office. She was friendly and helpful. For being such a big metropolitan area, there aren't that many RV parks around Portland. Aurora Acres is close enough that you can visit Portland and still get out of town at the end of the day. It's one of the better choices in the area if you're visiting Portland and don't want to drive 50 miles back to your campsite. - Travelfish

Great for an overnight spot near Portland. I was worried about noise because I-5, an access road, and a gas station surrounded us but even though I am a lite sleeper, I slept fine. The staff was friendly. The swimming pool, laundry facility, bathrooms, and showers were clean. It was pet friendly and our 45' RV with four slides fit nicely in the pull through; although, we didn't pull out our awning and I don't think it would have fit. Shopping and restaurants are near by, Portland is about 20 minutes away, neighbors were nice and most long term sites were neat and following the rules. We would stay short term again if looking for a place near Portland. - PERRELLAS
