16 RV Parks near Cascade Locks, Oregon

Nice park, shady fairly flat site. A bit on the noisy side with the trains going by all day and night and the highway right there. The highway noise is constant so it is more like white noise. Park is very convenient for hiking and seeing the waterfalls, you can hike right from camp. - Snoodleberry

This was a great find for us. The CRG is right there and we could drive to everything.
Asphalt pull-through/pull-around site that was not very level. We had power, sewer, and water. Very shady area, which we liked.
We reserved online, arrived, pulled to our site. Never spoke to a single person. We came back after driving to a close attraction to a rear view mirror hanger on our picnic table. I've never been to a place like that. - daa10496

Nice spacious sites in a nice wooded area. Great price for full hookup and so close to the Columbia River Gorge attractions. It is not very busy in October. - Super Symmetry

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

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 were assigned site 47 upon checking in. We drove to site with park host. Site was long and wide-good for pull through site. Then we discovered it was only a 30 amp site even though our confirmation said 50. I had to walk back to office and after an hour of waiting in the office they moved us to 46. Due to amount of pine trees there was no way to connect to our Dish tv service. Trees were nice though for the shade. It kept the RV cool.
This site is about as close as you can get to the railroad tracks. The trains blow their horn at precisely the KOA location. They run through starting at 5am, 5:30am, 6am then start up around 5pm, 5:30 pm, 6pm. Then again around 2am and 2:30am. I don't know about the rest of the day because we were out.
The trash situation is the worst I've ever experienced. They only have one trash area for the entire park which is right at the park office-entrance. Smelly, full of gnats and bugs, unorganized, regular old smelly trash cans for the recycle, which people were dumping their regular trash because the landfill bins were spilling over. It is a total mess and they should be written up by the health department.
We staid 3 nights. It's a shame this place is so bad because the area is absolutely stunning with natural beauty and endless activities. Sites and roads in park are mostly dirt. There seem to be quite a few full-timers there too. - Marilyn Froggatt

Nice shady level sites. Tight turns, glad I wasn't larger. Train noise but we're used to it so didn't bother us. Enjoyed the seeing of children. Most parks we stay in are pretty childless. Pancake breakfast on Saturday was a treat. Friendly staff who really worked with us when we went in to book a later stay for a week. Park was full both days we were there. - rvicsvol

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

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

Little bit of a climb in the campground getting to some of the spots but very doable. Great spot, great staff, private campsites, tons of shade and very quiet. Manager was super helpful! Great pet area! - The Childs

Stayed 2 nights and enjoyed very much. A bit difficult backing into space but it was level. No sewer hookup but they did have a dump station. A bit difficult finding the resort but got help from owners. GPS not accurate. Checked out bathroom/showers and decided to use trailer instead. Pay showers. Park was in pristine condition with nice dog park not fenced in.
Would stay here again. Very quiet. - mcomeaux

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

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

Previous reviews are right, the trains sound like they're going to plow right into your RV. And they run all night long. The highway is noisy, too but we tuned it out after two days. Despite what phone reservation reps tell you, there is no RV dump station here. They have electric and water hookups but no dump station anywhere except the camp host site, which they will not let you use. The closest dump station is 6 miles one way in Hood River at the Water Treatment Plant on the north side of exit 64. The showers are hot. We had great AT&T coverage. TV antenna only picks up two PBS stations. No laundry facilities. The Columbia River is accessible from the campground. - LifeRidingShotgun

Best thing about this park is quiet which is why we chose it. Other parks are too close to busy highway and train tracks. There are about 40 sites with water hookups but no electric. Showers and bathrooms are old and run down but I suppose clean enough - they were cleaned daily. Best for smaller rigs but there are a few that can accommodate larger rigs. Pads are small but some are open enough that you can hang over the pad if needed. There was a 40 footer when we were there. Beautiful Hood River runs through it. There is a geocache at the park if you participate in geocaching. Also picked fresh wild blackberries while there. We stayed 4 days and I would stay again. - utchaps

This Hood River County park is located on 36 acres along the South bank of the Hood River. The campground is close to town, yet quiet (no trains). The sites are kind of spread around with two sections, one mostly for RV's and the other for tent campers. Sites are available on a first come first serve basis with no reservations. We stayed in site E which had a wonderful view and sound of the roaring Hood River below. There is playground equipment, a picnic shelter, tables, and fishing. RVs up to 30' are allowed. The showers and bathrooms were in terrible condition and we didn't use them. Also be aware that the two electrical outlets next to sites M and N were not working at the time we stayed and didn't look like they had worked in a long time, however there is plenty of water at almost all the sites. - josh970506

This is a clean park with occasional distant train noise. Some events can also be noisy.
Sites are near-level unshaded grass. Voltage is good.
WiFi is strong. I measured 868.5 kB/s down.
Verizon LTE works well.
TV: ABC CBS FOX PBS. VHF weather radio is very weak.
The manager is friendly and helpful.
Unfortunately, camping is only allowed when some event is held, so it's best to call ahead well in advance. - wjzcbn

This is basically large open fields with various pedestals with the lights for the parking area of the fields on them that also have power boxes with outlets for 20 and 30amp plugs. There's not too many of 30amp outlets available, so pick a spot near a pole that hasn't got too many people already hooked to it. Water spigots are available, but no sewer hookups, but there is a dump station on site. Best to call ahead, as the sites are not always open, depending on weather the fields may be too wet to allow vehicles in to without sinking. Bathrooms are very clean and well built and coin operated, but very generous with the amount of time you get per quarter. All proceeds from the showers goes to help support the local 4-H Club in the Odell/HoodRiver area and hot water is plentiful. One of the funnest times to visit is if you're passing through the area and happen to be able to hit it during the Blossom Festival in April, if you're lucky you might run across a group of classic Winnebago motorhome owners who hold their "Hoodstock Jamboree" there each year :). - The Redneck Express
