25 Parks near Canby, Oregon
Oct 2016 - $34.00
Beware of this park. Management is unpleasant and rude. The park is patrolled by a groundskeeper who is in my opinion, more interested in causing problems than keeping the park clean. In the last year we were there, the office staff has changed 6 times. My advice is to avoid the whole Portland area. Because full time Rving is replacing super high rent in the area, in my opinion, parks are taking advantage. Very cramped spaces, horrific service, loud noises from the rock quarry behind this park make it a place we will never return too. - Boogie man

We were supposed to stay in this park for well over a week. However once we got to our site, we were SHOCKED to say the least. Once parked, we opened our door and almost ran into the unit next to us. Due to their slides, we had 18 inches between our door and their slide. When we went to the office to point this out we were told the manager would stop by when she got back to talk to us. We waited until check out the next day, still no manager. We went and made other arrangements at the local state park, and moved. Not once did the manager come by. Thankfully we had only paid for the one night. This was a valuable lesson for us. We now only pay for one night if we have not pulled the park up on Google earth. Their river fishing is a joke as is their river side spaces. All of these house permanent residents. - Full-Timer RV'er

Great owners. Has fantastic access to the Molala river: fish/swim/very dog friendly area by the river. Easy access to Portland with good local shopping. Has tight spaces and some long-term residents. We stayed for 6 months: the monthly rate was $410, plus electricity. Propane filling by the staff was appreciated very much. - Nartofree

Very noisy, small spaces, 98% full timers , very little maintenance, management not friendly. Walmart lots could rate higher . - scotwil50

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

Clean, well kept park. Quiet. Close to Costco for gas. - sp123

This is an easy location right off I-5, with nice landscaping and paved interior. Sites are close, but not a problem to get into, and level, no picnic table. We did not have to unhook our travel trailer in our pull thru; there are also back in sites. Nice clubhouse, pool, showers, and laundry room. All hookups worked fine. My big negative was no wifi at my site, but worked fine at the office area, lots of tall trees. Good Cable TV. There is a shopping center across the street with Costco, Subway, Panda Express, and a pizza place, etc. - trussman

Very clean park. Office is way back in the back of park. Some traffic noise, but not bad. Clean park. Spaces tight and they don't want you to park on grass, but not enough room for vehicle and camper. - DRBurns

I have actually stayed at this park several times. It is just a couple miles from the Airstream dealer and works great when I am taking my RV in for service.
The gate is closed from 10pm to 5am. And the host specifically checked that I had holding tanks. (Mine is the Airstream Mercedes Sprinter van, so a bit incogneto)
When I have been here in the summer the park has been popular during the day. Things quiet down at night.
This is a great inexpensive place to stay when in the Portland area.
The only reason I gave a lower rating on the cleanliness and the site is because it's been rainy, and the sites are pretty much all muddy. It doesn't not seem they have done anything to mitigate the mud.
The spaces are close together. Plenty of room for a van, someone with slide outs on both sides may find it rather snug.
The host was friendly, as they have been in the past as well.
I would recommend this park to anyone who wanted a safe, friendly stopover in the Portland area. - StormRunner

We needed an overnight stop and most RV parks in the Portland area (very few to begin with) are full for the summer. Make reservations early, the locals love camping in RV's! This was fortunately one spot that seems to get overlooked if you need a last-minute place that is secure at night (gates are locked at 10pm). No reservations, it's first-come first-serve. Most sites are pull-thru and big-rig friendly. Check-in was a little confusing, no place to park without blocking the entrance. Might be best just to pick a spot you like and pull-in? That's what we did and the camp host met us at our site to take a credit card or exact cash only (no checks accepted). Sites right next to the river are extra, maybe $5 more? We arrived on a Wednesday evening and the campground was less than half-full in the middle of July. You will want to be self-contained to stay here, no showers and I can't remember any restroom either, except if you walk over to the park (not far). We were in the 3rd row from the river but could still see it. Sites are crammed next to each other though, so it's practically a gravel parking lot. At least no one pulled in next to us that night - we picked one between empty sites. No picnic tables for sites here. There is a dump available here. Lastly, we work online and make sure to say something about Verizon's coverage - surely no need to worry being in the middle of the city here, full bars LTE data and cell signal. - Sara C.

The best sites are along the river. 2nd row is pretty good, too. All sites are a little close to the next. Good rate makes up for it, plus you're in the city. Road noise is moderate. Easy to access off the main road. I was able to pull in over 100 TV channels. I think the other review had issues with his TV. It's a great spot to drop in your kayak or do some river fishing. - Craig H

Arriving late in year, most of the things in the park are closed, store included. No cell service, lots of hiking, biking. A lot more history then I ever knew. Park has a disc golf course. Was in A loop because of trees, site was level. B loop is nice, and more open for sure. Two sewer dumps leaving park. Winery across from entrance. Beautiful short drive from I5 through farms. Seats on the Willamette River, which has a boat in docks, with walk in site. Would definitely come back. - NXTSTOP

We were in the A-loop which is WE only, but there is a dump station nearby. All hookups worked well and we were able to receive 5 OTA tv stations. This section of the park is situated beneath old oak trees which provide shaded campsites. There is a second loop with a few FHU sites which is more open and would be more conducive for satellites. Lots of trails for bikes and peds. Quiet. Would come again. - frmOregon

This is a very nice park with shaded bike/walking paths that go on for miles and big fields where dogs can run unleashed. We were in the A loop where the spots are quite small and close together. There were a lot of large groups, but everyone was courteous about quiet time. The park is very convenient for wine tastings and for day trips to Portland. We would stay here again. - Dapper

Stayed here 4 nights while visiting friends in the area. Park is mainly occupied by long term units. Most long term people had clean well serviced units and their sites were neat. Seem the front two rows of the park is for short term stays. Park is neat and well groomed. Most pull thru sites are not long enough to allow you to leave your tow vehicle or toad attached. Back in sites require you to park you vehicle in front of the rig and pull thrus allow parking behind your rig. Makes the street narrow but not blocked. Good Verizon, cable, park wifi slowed in the evening, but we used our Verizon Mifi. Would stay again if in the area. - Lemo

I think it has been 3 years since we last stayed here. My summer of 2013 review gives a detailed description of the park. We had level, asphalt, pull-through, full hookup site right next to the poolside bathhouse in the first row. The 50+ perimeter sites are back-in and there are 5+ rows with a total of 97 pull-through sites. Yes, the sites are not long and the toad parking can create maneuvering problems. There is 35 channel cable TV and most sites are satellite friendly. The Wi-Fi worked fine for our minimal (e-mail and simple web surfing) usage. There are bathrooms and a laundry with about 10 machines in the main building plus the aforementioned poolside bathhouse. Even with these 4 or 5 additional bathrooms, they are not adequate for a 50-site park. The pool is small and there is a playground. There is recycling with a separate, blue bins for glass and tan dumpsters for all other (plastic, paper, and aluminum). The staff I dealt with was friendly and helpful. - Jerry S

Located south of Portland with easy access to Hwy 5. Staff was not the friendliest. A lot of long term trailers. Nothing spectacular, was clean. - Fancypantsas

We stayed here for a week. Spaces are really close, WiFi is terrible. Very few cable channels.
Office personnel is very friendly. They do let you wash your car. Probably would not stay here again. - tookie

This was our first stay at a commercial RV park after the purchase of our fifth-wheel. We hated it - just a parking lot that has been parceled out for maximum profit. Owner & manager stuffed rigs in right next to each other even though park was sparsely occupied. Totally obsessed with their unimpressive narrow grass strips. This park left us feeling like we needed to get our rig outfitted for boondock camping pronto as this sort of park is like living in tenement housing. - MikenTerri

There are mostly long term people. The parks hostess is very nice. There is a long down hill driveway when you enter. There are only a few TV channels and half the time some don't work. The WiFi is iffy at best.
When I pointed it out and asked if there was any compensation-the answer was that the repair man was coming from Canada and he would be there in a few days. No refund of any kind.
For the price you would think that there would be more amenities.
You are paying for a place to park on a cement pad. The neighbor was so close that we could not put our awning down. - rvfool

The understanding of Elk Lodge camping was for traveling Elk members to have a safe, clean overnight stay stop. This lodge rents out spaces for long term, some even permanent live in year round. No reservations accepted, yet people are allowed to pay ahead for a spot and not actually occupy it. There are unoccupied trailers there that are actually for sale. Members are turned away due to no space available. Very disappointed with this Elk campground. - Followin the Sun

For Elk's members only (see www.elks.org for membership info). A good, clean, safe place for an inexpensive overnight stay while traveling through the area. Nothing fancy, but pretty well-kept grounds. Water and 20/30 amp electric only. Voltage was on the low side to start with and was easily pulled down to below acceptable with a load applied. There are no sewer connections and no dump station is on site. The sites are off the main lodge parking lot, reasonably level, gravel covered, and close together. You won't be putting out an awning here and wide slides could be a problem. While big rigs should be able to maneuver through the park just fine, fitting into the sites lengthwise could be a snug fit unless you allow the back of your rig to hang over the rear of the site. The camp host present during our stay was very friendly, as are all Elk members! A W-iFi signal was available, but we didn't attempt to use it. AT&T had strong signal strength and our Verizon MiFi worked great. - Gyropilot

This park was right up our alley. You are definitely in the woods. There are several trails that you can hike on within the park (access to one is right from your camp site). There are almost 1000 acres and access to the River. We hiked to the Bat Barn on the property, and really enjoyed that.
The parking pads are paved, but the sites are pretty much just dirt because you are in so much shade. The way we had to park we were unable to open our awning, but that was fine as it rained the whole time we were there. There is water and 30 amp electric at the sites, and a dump station. The park was very quite while we were here, but it was definitely slow. I hear it is busy during summer. - The Michellis

Sites are all shaded, large, paved level back-ins, electric/water - no sewer (one dump nearby). The park is quiet with good hiking/horse trails. Picnic tables are extra large. Clackamus River runs through the park. Only 30 amp service and low voltage in the early mornings - trips our surge protector between 8-9am. Great, helpful camp hosts. Views are limited because of all the trees, but lots of green. Mount Hood is nearby. Definitely stay here again. - Livermorered

We stayed here for a week, and were not especially happy with the park. The sites were too short for our 39 foot motorhome. The grass/weeds were not taken care of. There were many resident rvs, some not well taken care of. The rules, especially for quiet time, were not enforced. We will NOT return. Also many of the sewer connections did not have covers. - Kent Savage
