16 Parks near Cottage Grove, Oregon

Beautiful setting on the shore of Cottage Grove Lake. The main activity is water sports. We observed water skiers, jet skis, kayaks, fishing from boats & from the shore and kids using the swimming beach. The campground has a mix of pull-through and back-in sites that are well spaced. Around 25 of the sites are on the lakeshore and the remaining sites have a view of the lake. This is a great campground for families. - RickB

This is a lovely park in the forest but with both shady and sunny sites. Paved, level sites and great woodsy hiking trails. Only got a weak 3G on my Verizon. Will definitely return. - mockturtle

I normally love staying at COE campgrounds, but this was an odd one. First of all, it's dry camping, which is the first COE I've come across like that. Second, a COE campground usually means a water view, but the spot they chose here is away from the lake and no water to be seen, it's placed instead in a pretty open meadow area. It came close to feeling like a grassy parking lot. Sites all come with a fire pit and picnic table and the pads are concrete and flat. There is a section that is near the creek so if you can get a reservation, it would be worth getting one of those. The bathroom was in pretty bad shape: one of the toilet bowls were completely broken, the showers had no curtain between the shower and dressing area. They were the push-button type so you could only get about 20 seconds at a time, and less pressure/time if someone was flushing the toilet at the same time (I couldn't believe how constant the toilet flushing was when I chose to shower in the afternoon!). We have to work online as well, so Verizon LTE data coverage is a must, and though we could get a strong 3G connection, LTE was intermittent and couldn't keep a reliably fast enough signal. Fortunately, this stay was on a Saturday so we didn't have to worry about this issue. For an overnight stop, it was fine and since the gates lock after 10pm, it's a secure place. But for a COE, this was the worst I've been to. - Sara C.

Most of the interior roads and some of the sites are on asphalt. The rest of the interior roads and sites are on packed gravel. Some of the sites are leveled but most are not. The length of the sites also varies. Some sites can accommodate a large class A.
There are a few sites that are not under a canopy of trees. The campground would be pretty crowded if all of the sites were taken. There was one bath house with 2 showers per sex. The bathrooms and surrounding area were very clean. Every site had a picnic table and fire pit.
The COE is a dry campground however there is a dump station and fresh water available at the entrance of this park. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well in this park.
It was very quiet at night. We would definitely come back to this campground if we were in the area. We stayed at this COE with a 32 foot 5th wheel. - adsaxs

No discounts offered. Rate was for a pull-thru, FHU, 50 amp site. The RV park is adjacent to, and part of a motel resort complex. The park is small with many trees on each site. We had to park our 33' motorhome just right to avoid any interference from the trees and branches. The resort WiFi did not work in the RV park. The trees blocked our satellite dish. Our Verizon MiFi reception was spotty; it worked in the morning, but not in the evening. We would not stay here again. - Dave51

Beautiful spot, but some downsides.
This is a quick exit off of I-5 and beautiful grounds. The sites are spacious and fairly private. The hosts were very gracious and responsive. But there are some fairly important negative features. There is a beautiful pond here, but a flock of geese reside here. This means there is goose poop everywhere. The hosts tried their best to clean the campsite with a pressure washer, but we had to pick our way to the picnic table to avoid stepping in the mess. The other big downside is that you can see and hear the traffic on I-5. This does not bother me at night, but for the sensitive it might be a deal-breaker. The grounds are spacious and beautifully kept and the bathrooms were very clean.
There are no great walking trails here. We went to Cottage Grove for the attractions and this location certainly puts you in range for some great hikes, covered bridges tour, etc. - AshNor

Little highway noise, there is a nice buffer between road and spaces. Nice little town, great for trips and seeing Eugene. - littlegeneral

This was an old KOA that was shutdown and new owners bought and run as an independent. They removed all the old trees, upgraded utilities and really cleaned the place up. It is basically a big open grass area that is well maintained. Access from Interstate 5 is great and parking at your site very easy. Sites are level and plenty of room from your neighbors. This is a no frills place but a great place to stopover for the night. Satellite reception is excellent and wifi ok. Check in easy. Plenty of room to walk dogs. Gas and diesel across the street as well as a nice convince store and two restaurants. We'd recommend TJ's as a very good place to eat, recently remodeled with a big menu from breakfast to dinner. Don't miss eating at The Creswell Bakery for breakfast or lunch; it can't be beat for quality food served in an old church. Good Mexican food near the campground also. Campground is adjacent to interstate but noise not too bad. When passing through we will return. - rustandmoss

Back in site. Sewer hook-up mid site, level with ground. Water, electric at front of site. Dumpsters. Manufactured home park in back of site, seems well cared for. New owners of RV park, working on improvements. New landscaping around office. On site managers. Big rig friendly. - airtravel

This really is a very nice small park just south of Eugene. As others have noted it is well run, well maintained and the layout is carefully planned. Pancake breakfast on Saturadays is a fun feature. We stayed here for ten days and will come back. The cost is reasonable for what is offered. The employees are all great. The washing machine area is new and modern. There are just two bathrooms and they are combined with the two showers. There some amenities not included. No store, no pool...fine with us, Eugene has lots of support for RVers. No pet walking area...we don't have pets. There is a very nice green space in the middle of the park. No fire rings. No trash pick up but bins and recycling are nearby. BTW, the spaces nearest the road are too close to traffic if you don't have your AC running or can hear. It is well worth a few extra dollars for a premium space. - Solem8s

The rate reflects a monthly rate. Verizon 4g was good here. The wifi was better then most parks, but had an extra $10 a month fee. The bathrooms are cleaned daily and are very nice. The location of the park was convenient to Eugene and Springfield. There is only 2 things wrong with this park. The 1st that there is only 2 bathrooms, so you have to wait sometimes to take a shower. The 2nd problem is the more serious one. Theft here is very bad. I talked to many long time residents and they said it was a problem. I personally had stuff stolen that was chained up. This place has potential to be great, but until they hire night security they are going to be #2 in Eugene. - Lost Traveler

Stayed here for 4 months. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The park is very well run and clean. Pads are all asphalt and mostly level. Adequate space between units. A couple of the sites are a little tricky to back in to without getting on the grass. Would be nice if the pads were just a bit wider. Dish Satellite receiver worked well in our site, but some of the sites had more trees, so would let them know you have a receiver. I would definitely stay here again. They do get busy on football weekends and in the summer, so suggest reserving ahead. - Mgtann

When we arrived we checked in at the office with a woman employee. She appeared to be pleasant and helpful until I voiced a objection at her comment regarding no large dogs were allowed. When she saw my disbelief she then said, "If you are nice to me I may make a judgement/decision to allow your dogs, at my disgression." Someone such as the owners of this RV park need to teach the following business principle to their employees. The customer pays and is therefore not the one that has to be nice! The business owner wants your money and business, so therefore she or he goes out of his or her way to accomodate you! AND furthermore in Tom Stienstra's latest West Coast RV camping guidebook he states that pets are allowed with no restrictions! And even if this is true, it makes no sense to allow only "small" dogs when its a breed specific issue. The employee further added insult to injury with her lame comments about the owner having to pay extra insurance for allowing pets. DUH! of course they do and that is not relevant to me nor is it of any business of hers to tell us that. And they charged us extra for the pets, so there is the "insurance" costs. Later we saw many dogs as large or larger than ours. The whole incident turned me off completely. In my small business I would fire an employee with her attitude. The park itself had no shade, small pull-thrus and crooked sites. Won't go back again, next time we will boondock. Unfortunately there are no hook-up alternatives near Dexter Lake. - gemsinger

Decent park. Out of the city, so no city noise, just occasional traffic on the highway and railroad. The rate is very reasonable. Great view and you can walk to the state park across the highway if you like. Sites are gravel and nearly level, at least mine was. Pull throughs are narrow; back-ins much nicer. I would stay here again. - Old Mountain Man

Park is very clean and quiet except for road and train noise. Lady working in office was very nice. Pull through sites are very narrow and close together. Difficult to walk around your RV with the narrow sites and a slight hill where connections are, easy to twist your ankle. Not a bad park if sites were just bigger. - stella fouche

Out of convenience we had to use this park as all the other parks were booked. When I pull into these old mobile home/trailer parks I never know what I'm going to find or not find but this park does have about 12 sites that are strictly used for overnighters. The other sites that they say are for overnighters I wouldn't want to use them. What happens in these parks is they get a lot of permanent people that are in here for three or four months at a time and with that comes a lot of junk accumulation which when you pull in for a overnight stay you have to look at this and it's very undesirable. The manager here and the people are very nice. It's just not what I call a RV friendly park as far as the aesthetics of it go. Even though it is convenient to the college and the football game that we attended I would not stay here again. - monaco cruiser

This is a clean park with some train noise. Sites are narrow, short, close-together, close-to-level asphalt in fairly good condition, with little or no shade. Roads are medium wide asphalt in fairly good condition, with lots of speed bumps. The office might have been open once, briefly, while I was there; I never met any staff. Verizon data service works well. The rate is total including tax; credit cards are not accepted. - wjzcbn

The RV sites in the front of the park were unkept. The manager was very difficult. The permanent sites were kept up. The pull through sites were easy to access. There were nice trees in the park. - two

They have very few full hookup RV sites. All were taken for the 2 nights we wanted. We were told that they had W/E sites available, and we could dump on the way out. When we got there, the W/E sites were actually on the road, next to the curb, one behind the next. So, there was no way to get a truck in to hook up when we went to leave. We ended up taking two spots at the front of the curb. Then, the grassy area outside these spaces was where folks walked their dogs, and it appeared that no one picked up after them. When we went to leave and dump, we found out that the dump station they advertise, doesn't exist. We won't be back. - ta96silver

Very very tight spaces. The RV section is an afterthought added on to a very very old mobile home park. We were going to stay 2 days - stayed only one. Needed lots of help to get out of our space. If we weren't visiting our grandson at the University we wouldn't have stayed. Didn't really feel safe - wouldn't return for any reason. The only redeeming feature was the friendliness of the woman checking us in.
If you have any other option, use it. - LJ Myers

This huge park is well maintained, although we did not use the bathrooms, so have no comment about those. Lots of basically tidy long term residents, separate from the nightly sites. A few sites along the river. Close to the U of O, fairly close to downtown Eugene. - wamttraveler

Very little freeway noise. Lots of area to walk dogs. Will definitely stay here again. - DeniseH

The name of the park should give campers a hint that the park is on a hill. It is a very nice park and if the owners would improve the internet service (which is currently practically non-existant) and level out the gravel sites, it would be a nice park. Besides the internet, the only complaint I have about the park is that the sites are extremely uneven. I would stay here again though. - travelingpeople

Beautifully maintained park convenient to I-5, fuel stops, and restaurants, yet fairly quiet at night. Paved interior roads and sites, with long pull-thrus, grass, and table. Row one sites are sloped downward, and our site's sewer location required and extension. Good hookups, WiFi, and cable TV, and Verizon service was strong. No obstructions to rooftop satellite dish. Very friendly and helpful check in. Not much in the area, but a great place to overnight while traveling. - Meanderman
