Initial perception from a Google Earth picture and when you first arrive is of a peaceful family park with lots of trees and close to nature. There are lots of fir and maple trees and it is family friendly BUT it butts right up to an AMTRAC RR with trains passing every 30-45 minutes, Throughout the day and night, all of them have to blow their horns or whistles for the nearby RR crossing. Dumpsters were overflowing for the 2 days we were there. When dumping tanks just prior to departure the sewer backed up from the parks end and started to bubble and seep onto the ground. After reporting the problem we moved to the transit dump site which also bubbled over unless you dumped very slowly. WiFi reception good, cable TV reception poor. All in all not a great stay. We will avoid this park in the future. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There are nice cafes in town. The park is within a few miles of the historic Bonneville Dam with it s very interesting salmon fish ladder. Also some nice hiking trails to various waterfalls are within a few miles.

Check-in was easy for 1 night (no stickers/tags for vehicle or rv. Park was clean in appearance except row of dumpsters that were packed and overflowing. We stayed on Wednesday night so maybe garbage pickup was going to be Thursday or Friday. Staff in office very friendly. Small pool behind office looked clean and young kids were enjoying it. Park was fairly crowded but easy to maneuver 38ft motorhome pulling a jeep. We had full hookups. Cable included. Most channels were very snowy. Later in evening, a few channels appeared to clear up. Satellite TV impossible due to lots of tall trees. Frequent train whistle but no problem since our windows were closed and a/c running. No security guard monitoring park so anyone could drive in. Our site was fairly level on dirt ground. We had back-in site but I did notice quite a few drive-thru sites. On site store with necessities and souvenirs in the office. AT&T cell worked good. WiFi was slow. We would stay again for short stay only since satellite impossible. Very woodsy feeling type park. Didn't notice many live-ins. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Not sure as we stayed 1 night on Wednesday. All you can eat pancakes advertised for every weekend.

Stayed 4 nights in pull through site by the road. Good power, water and sewer. Some train noise but you get used to it. Very good location to take advantage of all the waterfalls and sites of the Columbia River Gorge. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Great location to tour the Cascade Locks area, Bonneville Dam, Columbia River Gorge and see all of the beautiful waterfalls and take great hikes in the Gorge area.

We had a paved, level pull through. It was in the trees so there was a lot of fir needles. No staff on the weekend. Our space was in the middle and we were only about 150ft. from the train tracks and 5-6 trains went through per night. Bring your ear plugs. Good Wifi. Good cable. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

This is a good place to explore the Columbia River Gorge. All the Falls are spectacular. We hiked to the top of Multnomah Falls. The Crown Point Vita House is worth a visit if just for the view. Bonneville Dam and fish hatchery is very interesting. Everything is within 15 miles.

Not great. Narrow roads, tight turns, dirt sites. Pool was really green. Trains with whistles all night. Dump station poorly located (could only be used when entering). Inadequate bathrooms. We left after one night, expected to stay more. Sites are under heavy tree coverage. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Motorhome.

Stayed here after previously staying in a very sunny and hot location, so appreciated the shade of the very mature trees. However, a very large tree at the entry to the site would have made parking much more difficult had one of the staff not re-directed us to enter from a different way than we'd been instructed at the office upon check-in. Because of the trees, there was no grass and plenty of pine needles to track in, but it was very comfortable for sitting outside. The site was level, asphalt. Good Verizon service. The staff was friendly and helpful. Will consider staying here again if in the area. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy location from I-84 although far enough away not to have highway noise but it is near a busy railroad. Not a problem for us. It is a heavily wooded campsite in parts and our site was in a very dark area we had to have the lights on all day, we did notice several people moving sites. Our site was very long but narrow with dirt area between sites, we would not like to stay here if raining. The restrooms although clean need to be be serviced more than once a day as because of the dirt the floor gets very dirty/muddy. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our Wi-Fi was excellent but we were near to the office and the campsite was not that busy; good cable. We feel as with so many KOA campsites now it is overpriced. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We really like this park. Although it's a KOA, the cost is not unreasonable. Staff is friendly and helpful, and the store seems well stocked. I would have given it more stars except for 2 things. The bathrooms, although clean, could do with an update and combinations put on the bathroom doors. Second, the dog area is a joke. It's only about 10x20 feet, fenced with chain link. It could easily be doubled or even tripled in size and it wouldn't take up any camp site area. Since we travel with our dogs, a good fenced dog area is always a plus. Will we stay here again when come thru the area, and we hope we find the dog area is increased in size. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Shaded sites are TIGHT for big rigs. We made it w/ 34" MH and Dinghy. A 3-axle fifth wheel pulled along side of us tonight. Took several neighbors moving vehicles and a second lap around the loop, but we got him in. Very clean bathrooms. Too bad hot tub was closed by mid Sept. Quiet park. Grounds are spotless. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Motorhome.

Price reflects nightly rate with no KOA discount. We do not stay at many KOAs, but of the few we have, this is probably the worst. Very small, old run-down playground (and we don't even have kids and we noticed), small dog "park," very tight for big rigs, by train tracks (although we knew this going in), junk piled in a few places, not the friendliest staff, not even a book exchange - although they will sell books. Made us wonder if any campground can be a KOA (we assume KOA has some standards to its membership). Would we stay here again? Probably not. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Another nice KOA park. The staff was friendly and hard working. The camp sites were well maintained and groomed due to the hard working staff. They were always working around the campground and helping folks, cleaning sites, escorting RVs to sites and even had time for a great pancake breakfast each day we were there. Nice place to stay while seeing the beautiful Columbia Gorge area. We would visit again. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Motorhome.

This KOA is conveniently located off I-84 - 15 to 20 miles from Columbia Gorge waterfalls and the Mt. Hood area. The campground is in a nice wooded area with tall pines. Sites are not large, but are adequate. The trains do run along the side of the campground, but this is readily pointed out on the phone and during check-in. We did not find this to be a huge deal and used earplugs (provided) at night. The dog run area is small, but usable. A pancake breakfast is available on weekend days. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Motorhome.

The park was just fine, no problems, nice people, very helpful. Problem was the train crossing that is very close to the park exit. Our family likes trains but the whistles for the train crossings went on all night long. The tracks are directly adjacent to the park so the whistles are very loud. We probably won't revisit this park because of the noise. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Travel Trailer.

A beautiful campground with friendly staff and lots of lovely trees. The bathrooms were clean. The kids loved the game room. We loved the hot tub. The trains are a fact of life in the Columbia Gorge - both sides. And this KOA will give you a full refund if you decide, within the hour, that you just don't want to be there. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Motorhome.

Paved pull through level site. Wi-Fi & cable work fine. Lovely trees. Roads are a bit narrow, requiring care in parking. Sites are not maintained as cleanly and neatly as we usually expect at a KOA. Trash around the site, cigarette butts in the fire place and on the ground. Ashes and burned charcoal on the ground around the grill. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Motorhome.
