2 Parks near Cottage Grove, Oregon

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

Rate reflects Nat Park Senior discount. Wonderful, cool, quiet park. Almost full shade in some sites and full sun in others. Paved road and some sites are paved and level. Would definitely stay again - Tireman9

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
