2 Parks near Clatskanie, Oregon
May 2015 - $10.00
One of the nicest "City Parks" I've ever stayed in, park host was very friendly & helpful. I used one of the four back in electrical & water sites next to the ball field. There were three full hook up sites all right next to each other & the park host for $15.00. Many of the sites were taken by mill workers on the plant shut down. They were working long hours & came back to the park to sleep.
People use this park all day long, lots of birds & ducks. The river runs along it also & great dog walking!
Short walk over the bridge to food & drink in downtown with lots of options. Once again very clean park & I felt quite safe, nothing on the antenna tv as your in a valley. - packardrob

We wanted to camp at this $10 a night city park while in the Clatskanie area so called ahead of time to see if they had vacancies. They did, per camp host, but he told us the park couldn't accommodate 40 ft motor homes, so after setting up our rig at another CG in the area we drove into town and surveyed the city park. The only rig in site at that time was the camp host's 5th wheel and there were plenty of sites available in an asphalt parking area with nice grounds, we were so sorry we didn't survey the area prior to paying $30 a night at nearby private CG. Several times we drove by the city park and sure enough there were motor homes parked there. We would have gladly given our money to a city park rather than a private CG. We hope other big rig travelers will give them a night or two stay, it's a nice little town and has a nice laundromat and Safeway across the street so you can wash and shop. - glchism

Quiet place a couple of miles off Hwy. 30 , used as a Christian retreat & was told as many as 500 people could be there. But there's a private upper campground I believe they use. But when I was there I was the only one in a water & power site #3. All the Trailers were at the other end of the park across the field in the full hook ups that were $25.00 a night.
Owner & Campground hosts were very friendly & helpful, even had a pallet of split alder delivered to my site for $10.00
Path to a beautiful creek with swimming hole with lots of places to let the dog run. PEACEFUL is this private hide away - I will be back! - packardrob

The only thing keeping this place from getting a 10 is that at certain times of year they are home to a Christian retreat, and if you're not comfortable with a lot of religious Kumbaya, then you won't want to be there during those times. Otherwise, this is my favorite place to go. They make sure you know there cell reception is nil and there is no Internet or TV. This is a place to go to disconnect. It's all rustic. The bathrooms aren't fancy, but if you check the website, you'll realize what you're getting. There's a huge meadow that's great for dogs and kids and for watching the stars. Next time my husband has a week off work, we're going back. Since this place is remote, it's not one to stay at long-term, though I think you can. There are some small stores about a mile away, but that's it. It's nice and quiet and I can't wait to go back. - KendraM

We chose this park for two reasons only. It was close to Hwy 30 to Astoria, Seaside, Cannon Beach along Hwy 101. We also drove to Mt Saint Helen's and up the Columbia River east of Portland. A very rural setting, parked in a field with tall trees behind us where we could not get cell service, satellite service or tv service so we went to the thrift store in town and bought a couple of movies. We think the owner caters mostly to church groups since one was there in the RV section on the property. We never saw that area. We had H20/30 amp electric and drove to the bathhouse to shower which was clean even though there were a lot of grown-ups & kids using it. We saw no washer/dryer facilities. As you drive into the park you will cross a bridge over a creek. The nice owner, brought us a trash can and outdoor table. We parked here in a 40ft motor home for 2 nights at $30 a night which we thought was high. - glchism
