Large gravel site being about 50'x50' (or so) with lots of space between sites. Blacktop loop road and short blacktop stub leading to each gravel site. Well maintained. Sites were not level but with a casual glance at other sites nothing appeared to be extreme. Our site was on the east loop and we were out in the open. Water, 50A hookups were near the rear and sewer was about center of the site. Water pressure was good and tasted OK. We arrived late morning but since there was no one in our site we were able to setup. Verizon voice/data was average. Had plenty of room for our 38' MH and towed. Lots of hiking trails and the Banks Vernonia Trail (a rails to trails trail) goes through the park. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

We really liked this park! First of all, we could pre-register online and print out your forms, so that checking in is self-serve, all very neat and quick. The sites are so large compared to your typical private campground! Our site was very level, although not shady. We were here over a weekend, and although the park was fairly full all was quiet. Our Verizon service was excellent for voice and wi-fi. Our only complaint was that the water pressure was rather low. But we would definitely come back here again. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here several times before and always have liked it. This time we were in the lower campground #5 and it was fine. Great bike trail and we rode it several times. The only issue/concern was the water pressure seemed a bit low...otherwise great SP. Verizon LTE 2 bars worked fine. We were able to put up our Direct TV satellite up and got a good signal... We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

This was the first time I've visited in many years. The basics haven't changed except for the addition of many more trails. Hookups are in good condition and the water is excellent. Many (but not most) sites have shade in either the morning or afternoon. Satellite reception should be clear from most sites, but OTA is doubtful. Very quiet campground with large sites makes for a peaceful stay. I'll be returning often. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

There is an off leash area for the dog, but it's in the day use area which is a bit of an uphill hike from the campground.

This is a newer park in a wooded area (mostly conifers) on a hill. It's scenic and not too far NW of the Portland, Oregon, metro area. There are plenty of trails to hike on. We stayed in the Dairy Creek Camp West loop. There are tall trees behind the sites. These are our favorites providing privacy: 2, 4, 12, 14, and 17. Sites in the 35 to 53 row are more open to each other though they are spaced well. They have some smaller trees and shrubs that in time will help separate the sites. These 5 sites we wouldn't recommend: 7, 9, 31, 32, 54. In general all the sites seemed level. The front part is asphalt. The rear part of the sites and picnic areas are gravel. We enjoyed this park and will be back. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a short one night trip as part of a Free Camping day at Oregon State Parks. This is Oregon's newest state park and it's gorgeous. Sites were nicely laid out and had some separation as well as bushes that provide some level of privacy. They have an 18-hole disc golf course. We'll be back for a longer stay in August for the Eclipse! We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Reservations recommended on weekends and holidays as is just 30ish miles away from Portland. Online reservation a breeze to use. Pretty hiking /biking/equestrian trails through deep forest and woods. Camped in Dairy Creek East. A pop machine was located at entrance to camp loop. Free hot showers included with camp fees. Children's big toy playground area near restrooms. Nice dump areas for used dish water. Awesome knowledgeable and conscientious camp host. Would camp here again. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice state park located 30 miles NW of Portland. All sites are backin with full hookups and 20/30/50 amps. Sites are large enough for an RV and tent and have a picnic table and fire ring. The bath houses are clean and modern. There are two RV campgrounds. Dairy Creek East is built around an open meadow which is good for star gazing and has a playground. Dairy Creek West sites have more trees and are a little more private. There is also a separate tent camping area, a walk-in campground, horse campground, and a cabin village. There are many miles of well maintained trails and a 20 mile Banks-Vernonia paved bike path. The hosts and park rangers were friendly and helpful. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Excellent Oregon State Park. About 50 miles from the Oregon coast. 35 miles to Portland. Well maintained. Three different loops. Two for regular sites and one for horse camping. All loops have some FHUs. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of my favorites stops in Northern Oregon. Close enough to I-5 for access, but remote enough for quiet. Dairy Creek East is more family oriented -- a play structure at one end, and open with few trees, so you can easily keep an eye on the kids. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Hidden gem! Large secluded sites in the Dairy Creek West loop. Full hookups in the middle of a forest! Lots of neat local trails to hike. Quiet at night. We will return next year and stay at least 3 days to explore the local area and trails. Dairy creek west loop more shaded, kids playground in the newer "east" campground and shade trees not as mature, but there are some quite large spots in the east campground. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed her twice, 2013 & 2015. The park is very well maintained, quiet and beautiful. This year we have seen a group of five deer in the meadow adjacent to our site and then within 10 feet of our Motorhome. The hiking and biking here are great and include paved paths through very challenging mountain bike trails. Sites are generally flat and include full hookups. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

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.

Fortunately able to stay in WEST loop, campsites and tent sites much larger seemingly than more crowded, smaller sites in East loop. Camp hosts helpful and rangers provided very good information, cleaning and individual campsite cleaning began virtually as each former night's tenant departed which was highly visible. Others have already cited adequacy of biking and hiking trails. Cabins area very impressive as well as horse stalls and full hookups, 18 as I recall, in equestrian area. Very impressed with park and those who maintained this park w/highly positive attitudes and an expressed appreciation for visiting. We camped at L.L. Stub Stewart Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Vernonia 10 miles away w/fascinating Library, Chamber of Commerce and adequate choice of restaurants/supermarkets. Be SURE to try BLUE CAFE in downtown, best Mediterranean food in Northwest! Locally owned and operated, we had conversations with other diners from Seattle and Portland areas who visit this restaurant due to its menu and quality of food.
