We stayed in the East campground and this side is a fairly new park with paved streets and sites. The pull-throughs are big enough for a large 5th wheel and we disconnected the truck. It's nicely landscaped with open spaces and several ponds. There may be mosquitos in the warmer months though. There is water and electric but no sewer. We will definitely stay here again when in the area. We camped at Barton Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Barton Park is yet another Oregon gem. It's a well kept county park near Portland, right above the Clackamas river. There is a lovely park on the river below the campground with a boat ramp and fishing. Like someone else said, it would be a lovely place for a wedding or family reunion. We stayed in one of the pull through sites in the west campground. We have a 25' motorhome, so we were able to make it work, but anything bigger would want to be in a bigger space. The hookups were on the wrong side in most of the west campground pull-throughs. We ended up backing and filling and going into the space backwards. There was also enough of a slant that we weren't able to correct it, and with the record rainfall this spring, the ground was really (really) soft. We'd place our blocks, then drive them right into the ground when we drove up on them. The west campground is prettier. Landscaping is more mature. Trees are bigger. The east campground looks brand new, and is better suited for bigger rigs, but isn't as pretty. Both campgrounds are next to wetlands. In the summer, mosquitoes might be a problem. The camp host was excellent. We made a reservation for five days, then couldn't count, and stayed six days. On the sixth day, we were in Portland shopping, and got a phone call from the host, telling us we'd left some of our things at the site. That was really nice. Verizon and AT&T were solid. OTA TV wasn't. We didn't get any channels. We camped at Barton Park in a Motorhome.

It's right on the Clackamas river. Also a reasonable place to hang out if someone is flying in or out of PDX.

Site 71 in the East Campground. Nice park, good power and water, no sewer. Many spacious, long back in sites. None are shaded. Several shaded pull throughs but most looked tight for big rigs. Adequate showers with button you had to push every 30 seconds for water, lack of safety hand rails a significant issue. OK dog walking. All sites are paved, with fire pits and tables. West Campground has shorter grass and gravel sites. Smaller rigs might find it prettier there, but big rigs would have tree problems; doable but not easy. The park is in the Portland airport flight path depending on wind direction. We camped at Barton Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Closest shopping is in Sandy, about 10 miles away; 45 minutes to downtown Portland.

Trader Joe's and every other store you could want is in Clackamas.

The security lights on the restroom buildings are very bright; I'm glad we weren't close.

Quiet county park outside the city, but close enough to drive in to visit. We stayed here 10 days since I needed to fly out of PDX to return home for a wedding while DH watched over the unit and Bengal cat. I was able to get a weekend reservation here within one-week notice for August so that was pretty impressive. You'll need over a month's advance notice for weekends at the state parks. They keep the grass green and trimmed here. Picnic tables are located at the back-side of the parking pad, a little odd to me, but I suppose they figured you'd want to enjoy the grassy area more than next to your RV door. Sites are pretty close together too, so maybe too tight for picnic tables, plus it would be tough to maintain the narrow strip of grass. They are planting young trees between sites, so in 10 years I can expect there to be a little privacy and eventually shade? If I could have reserved much sooner, I'd have chosen one of the pull-thru sites in the trees. If you have a smaller unit without tow vehicle, you should check out the other camping section, it's set in the trees more with back-in sites for more privacy. I never got to check out the bath house. We work online so Verizon LTE data coverage is important for us, and this area had solid LTE service. We camped at Barton Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in the RV section (Barton East) for a week. The campground in general is quite nice, with newly paved roads and sites, decently sized sites, and a huge green field in the center of the main loop. Most sites are back-in with full sun and plenty of space. There are about 8 crescent pull-throughs that have more shade and privacy, but are right up against the trees with very little camping space. We chose the back-in. The park is mainly used by locals for weekend camping and activities along the river, and as a camper you can walk down to the river to swim, tube, etc. There are a few trails around the park which are good for walking dogs, and the campground itself is large enough for most dog walks. The main downside is that because of the several small lakes that surround the campground, the grass and roads were covered in goose droppings so you continuously need to watch your step. The lakes are overgrown/swampy so not good for getting the dogs wet. The showers were clean but water was lukewarm and the shower head created a fine spray making the water feel even cooler. The camp host was very friendly and helpful. We had only 2 bars of AT&T and Verizon 4G but both worked pretty well. Note: the park apparently locks their gates at 10pm nightly, although we were never out late so didn't confirm this. We used Barton Park as a home base to visit Portland and the Columbia Gorge. Unfortunately it's about 60 minutes to Portland due to traffic and 45 minutes to Columbia Gorge due to lack of main roads nearby. We'd definitely consider staying here again (it's a great park with a great price), but we might try to stay closer to Portland for a few nights to visit without all the driving/traffic. We camped at Barton Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park, with very clean restrooms and free showers, nice playground, short walk to an amazing park on the river. Would be a great spot for a wedding or family parties. All kind of sites available, some great wooded areas for tents or small campers. I would of given it a 10 but some sites are close together. AT&T cell work well. We camped at Barton Park in a Motorhome.

We liked everything about this county park. The sites and interior roads are paved and level. Lots of space between each site. We were in the upper section (not the one near the river) where it was open and spacious. The campground area by the river is older and has many mature trees. The showers are large and private with each shower being in a separate room. They're push button, which is a little annoying but they run a decently long time, plenty of hot water. Many nice areas to walk dogs on trails around the park. The hosts were friendly and very helpful with information about nearby services. We will most definitely stay there again when in the area. We camped at Barton Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very well run and clean county park. We stayed in Barton East, which is the RV side. The park is located on the river and the day use side can get pretty noisy, but it closes at night and the park gets very quiet. The dump station is conveniently located at the exit and is easy to use. The pull-through sites are very nice. There is very little road noise and some very nice dog walking areas. Definitely worth a stay, and we will be back whenever we go to Portland. We camped at Barton Park in a Travel Trailer.

We had a pull through site in the east side. The facilities were very clean. The firewood for sale was very dry and make a great campfire. We would stay here again. We camped at Barton Park in a Travel Trailer.

We had been here before, and were quite shocked when we pulled in to see that all the grass in the park has been allowed to die. Instead of a lovely green campground, we pulled into an asphalt site surrounded by dry, dead grass. Very disappointing, and odd since we're told there has been no drought here. RV sites in the east campground are large and level, but the dead grass and dying trees give the whole park a dilapidated, run-down appearance. Too bad. We camped at Barton Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park. They charge $16 on weekdays and $19 on weekends and you get water and 50 amp electricity. There are no large trees in the East campground which is for RVs so your satellite dishes will work fine. You park on asphalt and the spaces are nicely separated. There is a picnic table at each site as well as a fire pit. This brings up a point that some people should be aware of. People use this park as a "campground" so there is smoke from the campfires and people sit around drinking. They can get pretty noisy and stay up well after quiet hours. This is generally only a problem on weekends however. I would have rated this park a 10 if they had sewer connections at the site and if the park hosts or rangers had enforced quiet hours. We camped at Barton Park in a Motorhome.

This is a real gem of a campground, located just 9 miles outside of Portland on Highway 224. It's a Clackamas County Park, one of 3 which have camping facilities. Barton has 2 separate campgrounds: one has been here for years and offers RV and tent camping, either on nicely maintained grass backed up to huge fir trees, or on dirt within some of those huge trees; the other is a new CG, with paved sites and is for RV's only. All sites have water and power hook-ups, and a dump station is at the park entrance. Both campgrounds have bathrooms and shower facilities. Since Portland seems to have a shortage of good RV places, this was a great find. Portland is only 10 minutes away, but you're in the country near the Clackamas River, with deer, quail, and a multitude of frogs in the 4 ponds in the upper campground. The mailing address of the park is in Boring, OR, but Barton is a tiny community which is several miles from Boring. Don't believe the directions in the Trailer Life Directory! Go to the website for correct directions. Rates are $12 Sunday through Thursday, and $16 on Friday and Saturday. We camped at Barton Park in a Motorhome.
