Beautiful National Forest Campground in Mt. Hood NF, 6 miles away from Bagby Hot Springs. The campground is one of multiple along the road through the park. Sites are spacious with lots of trees and plenty of room between sites. Lots of hiking and fishing nearby. Pit toilets are cleaned daily and a water spout for potable water is available. - mikeyair

Sep 2015 - $24.00
Sites are all shaded, large, paved level back-ins, electric/water - no sewer (one dump nearby). The park is quiet with good hiking/horse trails. Picnic tables are extra large. Clackamus River runs through the park. Only 30 amp service and low voltage in the early mornings - trips our surge protector between 8-9am. Great, helpful camp hosts. Views are limited because of all the trees, but lots of green. Mount Hood is nearby. Definitely stay here again. - Livermorered

This is a very nice park, well taken care of, sites are nicely spaced, with power and water for $24.00 night. Lots of walking and horse trails, even a big off leash dog area, horse corals, and disk golf course. Very clean bathroom with free showers. ATT cells works well, was able to get internet through the cell, no dirTv. Note to any one going to Oregon State Parks, they're all on one night at a time or by reservations, makes it kind of hard to just stop in and pick a site for a few nights at a time. All in all great park, I would stay again if in area. We have been told the fishing great!! - laears

This is a wonderful county run campground. Near Portland, but far enough away to be in the country near Mt. Hood National Forest. Big open play area for kids, swings, b-ball, volley ball, and playground equip. No full hookups, but good dump site, with water and electric on 60 sites. Best for rigs 30-35 feet and pop-ups and smaller trailers. Maybe only a half dozen big rig sites, #63-70. On line reservations system has pictures and site dimensions. - Oregon91

Very nice park directly across the street from marina at the lake 6 miles south of Estacada. Great Wi-Fi and level sites with lots of room. Didn't even know this park was here. We always parked our motorhome near Portland and drove to Estacada to visit family. We will stay here from now on. - 4Freeman

Quiet county park outside the city, but close enough to drive in to visit. We stayed here 10 days since I needed to fly out of PDX to return home for a wedding while DH watched over the unit and Bengal cat. I was able to get a weekend reservation here within one-week notice for August so that was pretty impressive. You'll need over a month's advance notice for weekends at the state parks. They keep the grass green and trimmed here. Picnic tables are located at the back-side of the parking pad, a little odd to me, but I suppose they figured you'd want to enjoy the grassy area more than next to your RV door. Sites are pretty close together too, so maybe too tight for picnic tables, plus it would be tough to maintain the narrow strip of grass. They are planting young trees between sites, so in 10 years I can expect there to be a little privacy and eventually shade? If I could have reserved much sooner, I'd have chosen one of the pull-thru sites in the trees. If you have a smaller unit without tow vehicle, you should check out the other camping section, it's set in the trees more with back-in sites for more privacy. I never got to check out the bath house. We work online so Verizon LTE data coverage is important for us, and this area had solid LTE service. - Sara C.

We stayed in the RV section (Barton East) for a week. The campground in general is quite nice, with newly paved roads and sites, decently sized sites, and a huge green field in the center of the main loop. Most sites are back-in with full sun and plenty of space. There are about 8 crescent pull-throughs that have more shade and privacy, but are right up against the trees with very little camping space. We chose the back-in. The park is mainly used by locals for weekend camping and activities along the river, and as a camper you can walk down to the river to swim, tube, etc. There are a few trails around the park which are good for walking dogs, and the campground itself is large enough for most dog walks. The main downside is that because of the several small lakes that surround the campground, the grass and roads were covered in goose droppings so you continuously need to watch your step. The lakes are overgrown/swampy so not good for getting the dogs wet. The showers were clean but water was lukewarm and the shower head created a fine spray making the water feel even cooler. The camp host was very friendly and helpful. We had only 2 bars of AT&T and Verizon 4G but both worked pretty well. Note: the park apparently locks their gates at 10pm nightly, although we were never out late so didn't confirm this. We used Barton Park as a home base to visit Portland and the Columbia Gorge. Unfortunately it's about 60 minutes to Portland due to traffic and 45 minutes to Columbia Gorge due to lack of main roads nearby. We'd definitely consider staying here again (it's a great park with a great price), but we might try to stay closer to Portland for a few nights to visit without all the driving/traffic. - LifeRebooted

This is a nice park, with very clean restrooms and free showers, nice playground, short walk to an amazing park on the river. Would be a great spot for a wedding or family parties. All kind of sites available, some great wooded areas for tents or small campers. I would of given it a 10 but some sites are close together. AT&T cell work well. - laears

We needed an overnight stop and most RV parks in the Portland area (very few to begin with) are full for the summer. Make reservations early, the locals love camping in RV's! This was fortunately one spot that seems to get overlooked if you need a last-minute place that is secure at night (gates are locked at 10pm). No reservations, it's first-come first-serve. Most sites are pull-thru and big-rig friendly. Check-in was a little confusing, no place to park without blocking the entrance. Might be best just to pick a spot you like and pull-in? That's what we did and the camp host met us at our site to take a credit card or exact cash only (no checks accepted). Sites right next to the river are extra, maybe $5 more? We arrived on a Wednesday evening and the campground was less than half-full in the middle of July. You will want to be self-contained to stay here, no showers and I can't remember any restroom either, except if you walk over to the park (not far). We were in the 3rd row from the river but could still see it. Sites are crammed next to each other though, so it's practically a gravel parking lot. At least no one pulled in next to us that night - we picked one between empty sites. No picnic tables for sites here. There is a dump available here. Lastly, we work online and make sure to say something about Verizon's coverage - surely no need to worry being in the middle of the city here, full bars LTE data and cell signal. - Sara C.

The best sites are along the river. 2nd row is pretty good, too. All sites are a little close to the next. Good rate makes up for it, plus you're in the city. Road noise is moderate. Easy to access off the main road. I was able to pull in over 100 TV channels. I think the other review had issues with his TV. It's a great spot to drop in your kayak or do some river fishing. - Craig H

Best kept secret. No reservations. I was able to get a site last minute on weekends. The park has 2 great green parks, kids' activities and water access. Hosts are great people and keep all areas CLEAN. Great park centrally located. - Doctorlock

This was our first experience with an Encore park. Stayed here 5 days using a free promotional offer. We were visiting Oregon and selected this park as a home base for the Mt Hood and Columbia River Gorge area. Easy to find from Hwy 26. Check in was efficient and staff was courteous. The facilities: pool, office, store, clubhouse and onsite restaurant are very nice. The park is extensive. No escort to site. We were in the VM loop. Interior road is paved but site is a mix of gravel/dirt. The site is overgrown with vegetation with an area just clear enough to fit our 43' motorhome. The drop off from the asphalt into the site is about 6" at our site. The site starts uphill then levels out with a slight lean left to right. Tricky backing in. Our power box was held on by electrical tape that was wrapped around it making it functional. Utilities worked fine. Cable was marginal and satellite was impossible due to canopy. Our site had a fire ring/grill with trash that needed cleaning. As we can drove in we noticed trash dumpsters along the side of the loop. In front of our site we had two dumpsters making it very unsightly. The CG sites/loops are neglected and need maintenance. Other sites have the same appearance. No doggy park. The location is great for visiting many local attractions: Timberline Lodge, Mirror Lake, the Gorge, waterfalls, many hiking trails and the town of Sandy, etc. If we had to pay for the site we would not stay here but the location is great. - RTM

This camp has a restaurant, pool and is near the river if you like to kayak or fish. It is an short drive to Government Camp and Mt Hood, and a pleasantdrive to Columbia River Gorge. Lots and lots of families so the he pool is filled with kids. All sites are different, so we really cannot speak to levelness or location of utilities. We were in #1 which was a pull through. It was on a slope in the pines, and where it was level, the site was very, very damp. Still, the wooded ambience was great. - OH2SD

This is an older park and has many camping sites from tents to RVs to yurts to tiny houses. It is "close" to the metropolitan Portland, OR area; it gets a lot of use. That said, it is a good place to stay as a central place to explore the Mt. Hood area, and it is open all year. There are many features for the campers of all levels, and a pool/hot tub/workout facility, and playgrounds and bike riding. The staff is OK, but often seem overcome by the stress of maintaining a place as big as this and with as many people who stay here. We would stay here again, largely because of its location. - btsweetbaby

Water & electric site. Very helpful manager. She thought the site had 50 amp service but it was only 15 amp. Fortunately there was 30 amp service available near another site reachable with an extra power cord. Site required quite a bit of leveling. If using I-84 to reach the park use exit 18 rather than 22, since 22 requires climbing a 10% grade with many curves to reach the park. Park sign is very small and entry is directly east of the fire station and will require a wide turn into it. - Bob & Stephanie

I stayed in a 20 amp site for 2 nights. Water available. #22 I paid $12.50/night at the Passport America rate. Host was very cordial. Did not use the laundry, showers, or the bathrooms. - Andrea1010

This is our favorite RV park !!! according to an overall feel we were looking for in a park.
It's a small park, about 15 spots, some of the people are seasonal but everyone is super friendly. We immediately felt like we could stay here for a long time. It's the only park that you WON'T hear the train it is very quite, maybe some of the others may look nicer but this one feels welcoming and family like.
It's in the heart of Columbia Valley, on the hill. It is only 25min away from Portland but has the best location for hiking and more attractions around.
Wifi works GREAT!!!! Water pressure is very good.
Our dog loved it here and she's picky ;)
It doesn't look perfect but rather feels very homey, each spot has nice green grass on both sides and the spots has nice space between each other.
We've never given a park 10 stars, even not the "resort" really beautiful ones, but this one even though it's not prettiest, it's just made us feel like we belong. - MikeMayNaama

We stayed here for a week, and were not especially happy with the park. The sites were too short for our 39 foot motorhome. The grass/weeds were not taken care of. There were many resident rvs, some not well taken care of. The rules, especially for quiet time, were not enforced. We will NOT return. Also many of the sewer connections did not have covers. - Kent Savage

Like the other reviews have noted this park is clean and well organized. I didn't use the wifi because the park was full and my Verizon signal was good enough to stream video/movies. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, giving us several good pointers about the area. It is a good hub for Portland, the Columbia River Gorge and the town of Troutdale is a very easy walk. We will be here for five nights. Highway noise is present but really not an issue but what is is the nearby trains. The engines are quiet but they constantly blow their horns at the crossings and when going over the bridge and they sound like they are right in the park with you. When trying to sleep it's a problem, like three trains overnight starting around 2AM and loudly sounding horns. I think we have the best site in the park, #181. Shady most of the day. - Whack-A-Mole Wheels

Had to arrive a day late due to mechanical problems and they were very understanding about it. Interior roads are very easy to navigate. Our site was paved and level. Wi-Fi was good. Close to downtown Troutdale. - Rd yacht

Extremely nice park. Lots of permanent residents but everything is beautifully kept. Paved roads, level concrete pads, beautiful grassy strips between sites. East to get in and out with big rigs. Utilities worked well, good wifi. We couldn't make the cable work with our TV but it wasn't necessary because antenna-TV worked so well. Our hot water went out so we had to use their showers which were excellent, clean with plenty of water and heat lamps in every shower stall. Convenient to everything in the area. Explicit instructions about not hanging over the ends of the space were hard to comply with when parking a crewcab dually. There's nothing they can do to fix it without going to a lot of expense and most people don't have super-long trucks. Would have rated it a 10 if the spaces between sites had been wider and the tow vehicle parking situation had been easier. We would definitely stay again. - all4pets
