18 RV Parks near Cascade Locks, Oregon

The best part of this park is that it is close to Multnomah Falls and other beautiful attractions along the US 30 Historic Hwy and view of the Columbia River are really great. The drawback is that it is old (built around 1941), and the roads are very narrow and back in spaces tight, pull thru's o.k. Also too many rocks along the spaces makes for very tight turning and hard to navigate backing in. Restrooms clean and staff very friendly. - Colorado Vagabond

Small State Park with full hook ups. No Wi-Fi and poor Verizon wireless connection. 5 OTA channels but no news channel. Train nearby that runs 24/7 about every hour. Difficult to maneuver through the park with our 30' fifth wheel. - Bburgbrewer

We have a 38' 5th wheel and while there were a lot of big (bigger) rigs in the park, it was not easy getting in or out; getting in to our pull-through site or leveling. Roads were tight, trees hung low and you need to be careful or you will side-swipe something. Roads were paved or asphalt as was our site. Full hook ups were convenient Once in, it was a good place to stay in the Columbia River Gorge area on scenic Highway 30. We would probably stay here again as it is a good value at $29 but I had doubts as to whether I was going to get our unit in and around. We did so all ended well. - campersfromiowa

A tiny gem right on the Columbia. Amazing riparian life in this area! Campground was well kept. If you are planning to camp here be mindful of the height restriction at the park entrance. - Janet H

Best campground that I have ever visited because it has all of my favorite things within view. The Columbia River Gorge, trains and a brew pub with an excellent porter are all right here within a 500 yard walk. The sites are close together and the showers are stark but clean. Would love to spend more time here. - ditsyquoin

This is a clean park with frequent, loud train noise from both banks of the Columbia River. The trains on the tracks adjacent to the park do not blow horns, but those on the Washington side do, and are quite audible.
Sites are narrow, near-level gravel, separated by grass strips. All have a picnic table. There are some trees but little shade. Voltage is good.
Roads are gravel in very good condition. With the park full, maneuvering would be tight.
There are two showers, one accessible. They are clean and private, but unheated. There's no way to adjust water temperature or the shower head.
WiFi is strong. I measured 1055.4 kB/s down.
Verizon LTE works well.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
No terrestrial broadcast TV or VHF weather radio. - wjzcbn

Lovely rustic KOA. Trees abound, gravel dirt sites were level and the hookups were good. The location was very close to the Dam and fish locks, short drive to Mt. Hood, and about 30 minutes from Portland. Berries everywhere for the kids to pick. The 9 year olds enjoyed the bike riding and the playground. The park is located adjacent to a very busy train track, and there is a crossing nearby, so the horn sounds. The kids thought this was neet, others may find it disturbing. We would return to this KOA when visiting Portland. - kalynzoo

Because we seldom stay at KOAs, so I can only say that this one is on par with those we have stayed at (stayed here due to its location in the Columbia River Gorge). Family oriented, rustic, with the usual mix of Kabins, tents and one-nighters. Our level site was adjacent to the office/amenities complex (pool, laundry, showers, etc.) and was more than 80 feet long, where we were entertained by the antics of the many children at play! Yes, there is train noise, but we were not bothered by it. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a motorhome. - JohnandMari

Good site but people on one side were so close their firepit and table were right next to our hookups and slides - we got lots of smoke. But trains are constant and very loud. We asked what the hot tub temp is kept and told 104; this is perfect. We go on a hike, come back and change and head to the hot tub. It did not appear clean but we chose to use it anyhow - temp could not have be even 80. wife is a lifelong swimmer and swimming instructor (in the past)....she knows temps! Went to the office and told them and they just shrugged their shoulders. - AZSwede

We stayed here for about three weeks. After the first night we decided to find a different campground due to the road and railroad noise which is pretty bad. BUT, we decided to stay and are so glad we did. We adjusted to the noise quickly.
This campground is a jewel. It's small and terraced and directly above the Columbia River. I so enjoyed our daily dog walks down to the river and back up again. There are coves with picnic tables and benches. There are places to swim (at your own risk) in the river. Pets are welcomed throughout the campground and down by the river.
The grounds are kept up nicely. Hook-ups are well maintained and up to date. Good steady electric and good water pressure. The hosts are wonderful people and very helpful. The laundry is clean. We were in site one nearest the office and laundry and were able to use our satellite with no problems. Good steady electric and good water pressure.
The town of Stevenson is just over a mile away and had a surprisingly well stocked grocery store. Go just another couple of miles and you can cross "The Bridge of the Gods" into Oregon which is perfectly fine to cross with your RV whatever the size. It's a 40 minute drive to Portland via I 84.
The only reason I didn't give this park a 10 is the noise but if you want to be near the river with gorgeous views and don't mind the noise this is the place for you. - RosieandThumper

The campground pictures were misleading. Hookups had to be done by running the line to the front of the motorhome or if we had backed in to the site if could be done as usually, but you would have missed the view of Columbia River.
The train tracks are approximately 50 yards from the camp sites. The trains run on a regular basis day and night. Very noisy and disturbing.
The host people are friendly and helpful. - USMC5811

You are on the banks of the Columbia River, but this sliver of land is wedged between the main highway and the train tracks. Dozens of trains day and night come through: crossing is nearby so lots of whistle blowing. No antenna or satellite reception. Convenient location to Stevenson: had a great brunch at the Skamania Lodge a short distance away. Great view from the Lodge. There are lots of campgrounds around if you know the names of the little towns around. Oregon is across the river and a nice boat ride is available from Cascade of the Locks: a lovely little town across the river. - travelexpert

Not a lot has changed from previous reviews. An older park, some RVs are obviously long term (not well kept around them) while others are well kept. The short term sites all seem to be pull through w/ water and electric only. I think the sites are very narrow but do have wild shrubs, trees, etc separating the sites for privacy; however, we had trouble putting slide out without hitting a tree and it is very difficult to put chairs, grill , etc out. However, it had been raining when we arrived and we had lots of water on our site. The roads have recent new gravel, but we joked that our door mat might float away. Managers now seem to have regular hours and were friendly and helpful. - BandD

This is more a trailer park than RV park. Sewer is for long term, monthly, only. There is never anyone in the office. Fill out the envelope and drop it in the slot. I was told when I called that the shower was free, it is not. I was also told you could get satellite reception from a rooftop mount dish, also not true. The stream is a rockbed, bone dry. Sites are not being maintained. Many firepits have beer cans and trash in them. Rule says dogs must be leashed, dogs are loose in park. 5mph speed limit is not enforced. Lots of dust. We enjoy trains, but this is ridiculous. It feels like the freight trains are coming right through the living room. - paxton

This is a great place stay! Nice area with great views and lots of activities nearby. The atmosphere is pretty casual. The sites are well spread out and there are trees and grass throughout. It is a pretty large place and there is a section for more permanent spaces, but don't let that dissuade you. I believe it is first come first served and you pay by dropping in a slot box. We found two great spots that backed up to the creek and had a great time with the kids. The train goes by every few hours and it is close enough to be pretty loud but not close enough to rattle the dishes. Most of the sites have power and water but no sewer. There is a dump station near the exit. Oh, and we got pretty good cell reception there. And there is a a nice park area across the highway with a store/gas station. - BoJyJoCha

Wyeth Campground is a USFS campground on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge. It is close to all of the fun stuff in the gorge, and is an excellent alternative to the state parks and private campgrounds. Like most forest service campgrounds, it has no hookups, no dump station, and no showers, but does have a restroom with flush toilets, and several water spigots. The campground is clearly marked no big rigs, 30 foot max. Our 25 footer had plenty of room. I think a 32 foot rig could get in, but anything larger would be really pushing it. There is a grassy overflow area that a big rig could get into if there weren't a lot of other campers. Sites are spacious and paved. Really nice. We reserved site #9, but when we got there, we found site 9 was on a steep enough slope that we didn't have enough leveling blocks to level. We switched to site #13, one of the walk-up sites, which was only about an inch out of level. The campground is heavily forested. Satellite and solar panels are never going to work. We didn't try the TV. Verizon and AT&T were both strong. The main problem with all the campgrounds in the gorge is the noise. I-84 goes down the Oregon side of the gorge, and there are train tracks on both sides. We could hear the freeway all the time, and frequent trains. We heard a few train whistles, but they were far enough away that they didn't bother us at all. My main complaint with this campground would be the price. It was $20/night for a site with no amenities. The campground was beautiful. The site was nice. But the price was a bit high for what you get. - AnnP

This is a very small, nice campground 3 miles up the hill from the Columbia River. It is rustic and surrounded by woods with many shaded spots. It is owned and managed by a young couple who go out of their way to make sure that all is OK. We will definitely stay here again. - GilesScott

Loved this little park. The area is gorgeous and the park grounds are well maintained with beautiful forest and shrubbery. I can't say enough about how nice the young couple are that run it. It is a true family operation with their parents and kids helping out. The check in was easy and the owners were always there to lend a hand if needed. I hope we get back there again. - Di4040

We came to this park looking for a camping atmosphere with 30amp and H2O connections. Immediately upon arrival, I knew I found a little piece of heaven. The staff made my family and I feel like honored guests, although we arrived unannounced/no reservation. We were given a map of available sites to chose from with no pressure whatsoever. Beautiful, well maintained back-in sites with forested privacy throughout. A most welcome change after abandoning a crowded, truck stop-like park in Cascade Locks. We will return to this park again for sure. - David Heather

Well, this is a nice little park with one big caveat, which is the railroad crossing on the river access road, and one small caveat, which is the lack of even a dump station. Traveling solo and male, I was able to stretch my tanks, but other should take note.
I spent 12 nights in the site nearest the railroad crossing and survived. I sort of like being near trains, but the horns are very loud. Nonetheless, I grew accustomed to it, and wasn't awakened more than once or twice. But that's me, everybody responds differently.
The park has two major advantages. One is actually the railroad crossing... because so many people dislike trains, it's possible to get a space on a summer weekend without booking far in advance. I was able to book summer weekends 3-4 weeks ahead. The other advantage is that it's one of the few parks that has Columbia River access, a nice little picnic area that's only a short walk away.
On an earlier 2-night visit, I arrived to find my site occupied. Just a trailer, no tow vehicle, hooked up but nobody around. The host was very helpful, and they moved me to a "reserve" site that they kept open for such things. So thumbs-up to the staff for handling it well. - bobk3d

This park is between the train tracks and the freeway, close on each side, and the trains run day and night, but I slept right through them. There is very little shrubbery and usually one tree between sites, so there is no privacy between neighbors other than the block your RV provides. There is very little grass - the ground cover is mostly pine cones and pine needles. My husband and his dog both got ticks here, so check yourselves and your pets carefully. The bathrooms were clean and stocked, and the camp host and the state rangers patrol regularly, which I liked. Hood River is only about 10 miles away, so windsurfers and kiteboarders as well as families, seemed well represented in the campground. This served the purpose for this late-planned trip, but next year we'll plan earlier and stay at a different park. - FrenchDogs

The only reason I gave this a 3 star rating was due to the trains that run directly in back of the park at all hours. You also get road noise from very busy highway. The park itself is very well kept and you do get power. The camp host was very friendly and did forewarn us about the train. If it wasn't for the train blowing it's whistle every time it goes by, you might get used to the train noise. We planned on staying here 3 nights but only stayed 2 and forfeited our third night's stay. I would not stay here again. - travelerofusa

Be aware this is a USFS campground, thus there are few if any accommodations beyond a site. We were the only motorhome we saw in the entire campground. The vast majority of the sites are not very level, this campground really is designed for tent campers and those with a small RV like a pop up. Most of the camp sites in the A, B & C loops are located on the side of the hill. D and F loops are a bit more flat and would probably accommodate an RV better. The campground is a typical, very busy weekend USFS campground. The "resort" is a group of cabins and boating area. The store is very overpriced, wood ran $8/bundle when we were there. This is a very crowded lake. Day user numbers are huge, if you don't claim a spot early you're dealing with the crowds in the few open areas. There is not beach area, the lodge has a clearing for those renting boats but the rest of the access to the lake is between the trees. You can walk around the lake, but you can not bike. If you own a Subaru and a tent, this is your type of campground. But for RVs this isn't a great place. Prices are expensive considering there are no amenities and the lake is very crowded. - Y-Guy
