Unless you have a Thousand Trails membership, I feel this Campground is highly overpriced. The campground is in a wooded area which gives you lots of shade. The sites are uneven, dirt (no gravel) and close together. You get the feel of being in a state campground rather than an "RV Resort." They do have a nicely stocked camp store with reasonable prices. - prmin

Great park near My Hood. Paved roads throughout. Sites available for all sized RV's. Most sites in trees. Staff stagared occupants in sites so people were not feeling close to neighbors. Sites had all amenities in working condition. Pool and hot tub near office area. Well stocked store for campers. Only drawback was the meeting/rec room was not stocked and basically empty. WiFi only at office/pool area - Roaming from CA

The park was deserted in our area after the weekend. Very quiet. Our first spot was in a traffic area and we got another one and it was quiet. Office staff was very accommodating. This park is expanding. They need to use some money to update their satellite/cable and WiFi at each campsite. They stated that the cable company has limitations. Our restroom/shower area was not working correctly, however, they had a sign that they were waiting on a part. Very good experience. We camped in May and during the week was not crowded. - Colorado RVers

Used the park as a 'landing spot' so we could travel around and see family, which worked well for us. The lot reserved for us in the B lot had too many low hanging branches, so we were moved to the A lot...just got leveled and the camp ranger told us they had someone else coming into that spot and wanted us to move back down to the B lot, but in a spot we could fit in. That worked out well, but moving around was a bit of a pain. They did give us a bundle of firewood for our trouble. With the trails/roads still being closed due to the previous fire made using the park for hiking, etc impossible. As stated in other posts, the train track is right below the park and is used pretty heavily. - locatjl

A beautiful state park situated right on the Columbia Gorge. Unfortunately, a big fire last fall has closed down most of the hikes in the area. Not being from the area, we weren't aware of the fire until we were emailed special instructions a few weeks out about how to access the campground. Had we been notified when the fire occurred, we may have changed stayed elsewhere. Regardless, the campground was untouched by the fire and is still lush with trees and undergrowth. When we pulled up to our site, we found someone in it. The ranger on duty took care of it immediately, and we only had to wait about 15 minutes to get into our site. Our site wasn't very level, but we managed with our blocks. Quiet park, and good location once the major attractions open back up again. - RVerFamily

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

We spent two nights at this park to spend a day touring the local area. The staff were friendly, but we were not escorted to our site. We were told we did not need to unhook our tow, but found we did to get into our site. Roads are paved, but narrow for big rigs. Our site was paved, not all are, and level. This park has plenty of trees, we couldn't get satellite TV but cable is available. As others have said there are train tracks next to the park, but the noise did not bother us. Restrooms/showers and laundry were adequate. We would camp here again. - TxDiver

Outdoor mats not allowed, made RV messy as grounds were wet. We never use pool, hot tub, bathrooms. Seems overpriced for water/electric/sewer, cable, weak WiFi. Stayed here because nothing else available. - nonadonna

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

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

If driving in a Big Rig - check with the park on which route to take. Coming west there are 4 tunnels - the shortest of which is 11'2'' at the shoulder. We took 84 from Portland and crossed at the Hood River bridge per the owners suggestion. You may get a weight restriction warning on your GPS - but the restrictions were changed and are not a problem. We are 45 feet/13.6"tall with a tow. Park is a reflection of the young owners and their family and camp hosts - which is to say it is very friendly, helpful and we felt like family immediately. It is up a 3 mile road (interesting in a big rig) but only a few minutes from the town of Stevenson. Beautiful and peaceful grounds. Satellite is site dependent - all big rig sites are back in which was not a problem. They have a very comprehensive store on site - almost like a mini mart. Facility is very well kept and we would definitely stay here again. Only nit is they don't have a laundry facility - which means a trip to town. - Zoey and Reba

Just got back and had a blast. Great RV Park. Owners make you feel like family. No cooking on picnic table (not made of wood) , so we set our portable bbq up on the fire ring, worked great. If you are over 28 feet, I would recommend sites 2-5, and 14-18. Very good wi-fi, cannot say enough about this park. can't wait to return. - jilllpilll

Great place for those who like privacy between sites. Better spacing than some state parks we've stayed in. Good tent sites too. Management very helpful and on site. Only drawback - steep hills accessing some sites would be tricky with a very long and heavy trailer. Great location for exploring the Columbia River Gorge and nearby national forests. - FRL

Searching on-line for more information I found this: "Part of Beacon Rock State Park, the Woodard Creek Campground has five utility sites that provide electricity, water and sewer. Follow signs off Highway 14 (near mile post 34) to the watercraft launch area and follow the signs to the RV campsites. The sites have a maximum length of 40 feet and these campsites are open year round. The equestrian campsites, located at the equestrian trailhead, feature two standard sites that will accommodate a horse trailer each, a hi-line for horses, livestock water and a CXT vault toilet. There is no potable water and no electricity. Primitive camping fee applies. All campsites are first come, first served. Winter facilities at the moorage area include two tent sites, one shower and one restroom. Overnight moorage and the boat launch are available year-round." - JackSchmotzer

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
