This is a new Oregon Park and it's very nice. This park has lots and lots of bike trails and hiking trails -- even some horse trails. We've enjoyed walking and driving to various small towns in the area. We didn't get satallite but it could have been just our site. PHones and lap tops worked great. The sites are very nice with lots of space between them and they are huge. Very friendly hosts too. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We enjoyed trips to Vernonia, St. Helens, and Raineer.

I can't complain much about this state park campground. The price is slightly on the higher end than I'm used to for state parks, but you get FHU so it was a wash. The sites are spread out decently and if you stick to the inside of the Dairy Creek West loop, you'll probably get a shady spot or at least more privacy foliage between you and your neighbor. There was a fire ring and picnic table provided at each site, and they keep the sites clean and tidy between guests. Firewood bundles were $5, pretty reasonable compared to most places that sell firewood. We have to work online, so our biggest concern is Verizon LTE data coverage, and this park gets a strong signal. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Shopping is a bit far from here, either Vernonia or Forest Grove, so best to come fully stocked with your groceries. I needed to make an emergency laundromat run, and found a quiet little affordable place in Banks on the main street. Gas and propane are available on the highway close to the exit.

As usual, the Oregon Park system didn't let us down! We stayed here 3 nights while attending a molded fiberglass trailer rally. There are two loops for general camping, Dairy Creek East and Dairy Creek West. The east loop is set in a meadow and is open and sunny. The west loop is set among the evergreen trees and would have more shade in the summer but maybe be a little gloomy in the winter. The park also offers a horse camp area, rental cabins, and a group camp area. There are two reservable shelters for group potlucks and the like. Our rally group used the shelter in the Hilltop Day-use Area for a get together. This shelter is roofed but not inclosed. I believe the other shelter is enclosed and has a large fireplace, but I didn't get to see it to confirm that.

About the only negative that I can think of for this park is that we had to make our way from I-5 west through Portland to get there! We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There are tons of trails in the park for hiking or mountain biking, as well as a disk golf course. The 20 mile Banks-Vernonia State Trail runs through the park and is great for both bicyclists and pedestrians. the little town of Vernonia, about 10 miles from the park, has some good restaurants and a grocery store.

Probably the closest state park to Portland (25 miles), there are two RV loops, a tent area, a hike-in area, cabins and a horse camp. I stayed here in January & February and only one loop is open during the off season. Though in the foothills of the Coastal Mountain Range, the climate is quite mild. Even during the winter months it only dropped below freezing twice. It also has two disk golf courses, but the main attraction is hiking. There are several trails within the park itself and it is at the midpoint of the 21-mile Banks-Vernonia Rails to Trails trail which is paved and has trailheads every few miles. It is a really great bike trail. There is no broadcast and television reception, even with a dish there are too many trees in many spots. No Internet either. At the visitor center is a small museum/store with some interesting exhibits. But only snacks. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Bring supplies. Nearest town with decent shopping is 20 miles away.

Helpful and friendly rangers, decent spacing between spots, long enough for a 45 foot motorhome. Most of the sites are for smaller units but there are a handful for larger ones. We preferred the west side to the east side. The east side is pretty Plain Jane - more like a parking lot. The west side has more trees and seemed homier. Strong Verizon signal. (BTW - you lose the signal on the drive in but it is strong in the park.) Awesome that a state park has full hookups! We noticed that each spot gets cleaned and raked when people leave. Very nice! Gets busy on the weekend but was very quiet during the week. Only complaint is the occasional compression brakes from trucks passing by on Nehalem Hwy. About 30 minutes from Portland so easy access. If they added WII FI we'd rate it a 10! We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

$31 per night (plus $8 for doing an online reservation) was for a large level gravel pad site with full hookups, picnic table, and fire ring. Some sites have shade at some point during the day while others are in full sun. This campground is located 34 miles NW of Portland and is out in the country where it’s quiet but near enough to shopping/dining. This is bicycle country so there are many miles of trails for riding/ walking/hiking. This campground was built in 2007 and was well planned to offer most anything campers require. AT&T cell service was five bars 4G. Our Milliencom jetpack was getting four bars of 4G LTE which was great for internet access. No OTA TV. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Full hook-ups, clean showers, level gravel site. Helpful hosts. Loved the 21 mile paved bicycle trail that goes right through the park. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

One of the nicest state parks we've ever stayed in! Sites are huge, gravel, level, and spaced very far apart. The full hook ups are located perfectly and performed well. Some sections are forested and very shady. Others are open and sunny. Our favorite site was #49, where we received the warm morning sun and cool afternoon shade. Our roof-mounted satellite dish worked extremely well, as did our Verizon cell and hot spot service. Camp hosts are very friendly and helpful. Area is very quiet, with miles and miles of hiking trails. Only 30 miles from Portland on Hwy 26, but truly a world away! We have already booked our next stay. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of the nicest RV parks I have been in. The park is in the foothills of Oregon's Coastal range, with many trees about. However, at our campsite, it was clear enough that we could get satellite TV. Our Verizon telephone worked fine, and we could use the hotspot to get Internet service. The campsites are level with full-hookups including sewer service. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

It was our fist visit to this park and we were there for the bike trail. The park is very nice and has wide, open sites on gravel. The roads and driveways are paved, the sites are on very fine gravel. Hookups are there, well working. You have plenty of room on your site and between sites is plenty of grass. The restrooms are what you can expect at a State Park, they were clean but could be cleaner. What I missed was a ventilation in the restrooms and the individual showers, the moisture can't get out and therefore you see mildew grow in the upper corners. Our satellite worked fine but we didn't have a phone or internet signal from Virgin mobile, both were working fine down in Banks. We will definitely return, we liked it very much. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is only 5 years old and it really laid out well. It is great for big rigs. The road is wide and the sites are easy to back in. The sites themselves are heavily packed gravel, level and clean! We stayed in Dairy Creek West. Spots 1-14 are more shaded, and 30-36 get morning shade. Since it was Oct, we wanted as much sun as possible so we stayed in 51. We had great satellite, cell and our own Wi-Fi. Dairy creek East was more open. There were lots of hiking trails. This is sort of away from everything, but we drove Hillsboro and took the train to Portland for the day. It was very inexpensive! The hosts were very friendly and kept the place spotless. We would definitely come back here again. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Great state park with a variety of trails for hiking, biking, or horseback riding. There's a separate camping loop for horse trailers and a fenced off-leash dog park. The east loop doesn't have much shade. Very friendly and helpful park rangers. Trash/recycling station is a long haul from the campsites. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

This state park sets the bar for every other state parks. They really did this one right. Very clean and will be easy to keep clean. Great job whoever! Hope more follow suit. Wish there were more mature trees, but can't have everything, right! We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Camping at Stub Stewart will bias you toward the older Oregon state parks. The spots are all spacious and private. The park is clean and quiet. We got good cell phone service but no TV stations, and no Wi-Fi. In the busy season I could see parking as a problem, since there is no designated overflow parking. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stub Stewart has two campgrounds. 78 full hook-up sites (50 amp, 50 ft sites), all ADA compliant with picnic tables and fire rings. There 78 sites are separated into two areas: Dairy Creek Camp West has 43 sites and is a bit more treed, and Dairy Creek Camp East has 35 sites and is much more open (you can practically see every site from any site). Each camping area has flush toilets and free hot showers. Verizon coverage good. Hosts not very friendly and park rangers were difficult to find. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
