Sites were close together. Sites were not maintained very well. Dead grass if any, mostly dirt. Freight train runs about 100 ft. from the edge of park at high speed; horn, a vibration inside campground every half hour or so day and night. We were not told of the freight train when reservations were made. Will not return. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Motorhome.

Large, family-oriented, busy KOA close to the Interstate and the Historic Cascade Locks and Bonneville Fish Hatchery. Hard to find if coming from the East--ask for directions. Well marked if coming from the West. Sites are situated under beautiful large pine trees, but grass is almost non-existent, creating lots of dusty areas. Many children playing in the streets, riding bicycles, etc. Drive carefully!! Makes a good base for exploring the Columbia River Gorge--but not for a quiet, relaxing place to hang out for a week. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park, mature trees, lots of shade. But the location next to the railway and crossing makes for a very noisy night. Very busy park that fills up quickly. Sites need to be built up to level them. Lots of sandy dirt. It would be very muddy and wet if it is raining a lot. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Train noise was awful. Night and day. I didn't read any reviews before booking this park because it's a KOA. They have a good reputation. So....... I think it would be a nice thing for the park to mention the train on it's website. We are booked for 3 days but with the heat and the train noise we may go home early. The staff was pleasant and eager to please. Bathrooms are clean and very busy. Pool is very small. There is a game room with ping pong, pool table, foos ball, and connect four.

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. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Motorhome.

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.

Lots to see and do in the area. We went to Mt. Saint Helens and Bridal Veil Falls. Multnomah Falls was packed with no parking. Those are only a few of the things to do.

The campground was nice and woodsy. The trains were so loud when they blew their whistle (several times for each one) that my ears hurt. The big problem was with quiet hours. Our neighbors talked and giggled to after 1am. Asking them to stop didn't work. We lodged a complaint at the office and they said it would be taken care of. The next night they were worse. The only reason we didn't leave was because they checked out. No one ever drove around to check at night. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Tent Trailer.

Overall Rating:

The Columbia Gorge is beautiful and worth a stay despite the train noise which is impossible to get away from. At least the KOA is far enough from the interstate so that continual traffic noise is not a problem. Most KOA's we have stayed in are nicer than this location. We were assigned a spot directly across from the pool which was noisy because of malfunctioning equipment. Staff said that would turn the pump off at 10 pm, but did not. Sight was not level. Sites were very close together and not inviting. We saw better sites that were empty as we walked around so we are puzzled that we were assigned this spot. But, it was rainy, and we didn't want to move for just one night stay. Restrooms need updating, and an air ventilating system. We did like the overall feel of the park, as it was more campground than a typical RV park. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Close to the marina (but not walking distance) and we found a good brew pub there. Beautiful views of the river from the Marina area. Actually, we saw a small RV park/campground in the Marina area, and we will try to stay there next time in the area. Access is only good for car camping and small RV's/trailers because of the RR underpass which is only access.
