26 Parks near Gold Hill, Oregon
Jun 2016 - $35.00
Highly overpriced. The campground is probably at least 95% permanent residents and there are many mobile homes with various older RVs mixed in. Quite messy and dirty - clearly no rules regarding the appearance or maintenance of the residents outside areas. The sites are narrow and packed in - neighbors are very close, cats are running around.
The river is below the park, and the highway is very close by. Quite a bit of road noise.
WiFi is open and quite slow.
The whole park needs maintenance. The restrooms could be cleaner.
One of the residents helped our kids unhook a small fish by the river, and was very nice to them - and came by our RV after to say hello. Very positive ex-service person with a great attitude. That person saved our day :-)
Would not come again, though. - International tourist

Beautiful, older park with views of mountains and river. Each space is huge providing the occupant with their own "yard", giving plenty of space for privacy. Owners are very friendly and knowledgeable of area interests. Rates are very reasonable and park is kept clean. Would definitely stay there again. - txtransplants

We stayed here for two months while visiting the area. The rate reflects a monthly rate with electricity billed separately. Some have noted difficulty in locating the CG; note that the actual address is Central Point, even though the CG is next to Gold Hill, about 10 miles north of Medford.
The low rating is because we had two bicycles stolen. In our 11 years of full-time we had never had anything stolen. At this KOA, during the night, someone cut the lock and took the two expensive bikes. In talking with other campers, this was not the only case of theft in the park, including bicycles. Most of the park is long-term campers. Nothing wrong with that, but there are some pretty shady looking folks around. Also, Gold Hill has a lot of street people. We never felt completely safe there.
The owners are mostly absent. The park is run by workcampers that are very nice, but it has more of a feel of a trailer park than a KOA. So, if you do stay there, lock and protect your stuff.
There is some road noise since the CG is right off of Interstate. It was OK in the winter when we had everything closed. The CG is fairly easy to get into and get around. Utilities were good, but sometimes the trash dumpsters were overflowing.
Our Verizon voice and data worked well. We were able to get satellite using our portable dish.
The State Park just a few miles away is much nicer, has full hookups and is cheaper. We would certainly stay there rather than this Gold Hill KOA. - TheJim

Our Garmin GPS couldn't quite get us to the CG. It kept wanting to put us in a continual loop, north on I-5 then south on I-5; rinse, repeat. Wife's phone got us there. All access roads are asphalt, lined, in excellent condition. Big KOA sign can't be missed. Staff and owners are friendly and helpful. Credit cards accepted. Tent camping, cabins, no yurts. CG roads are asphalt, somewhat narrow, in excellent condition. Gentle turns but watch for trees and barricade posts, no overhead obstacles. FHU-20/30/50. Sites are dirt with grass between, level with pedestal location at mid-rig, sewer at rear just above ground level. No patios, have picnic tables. Tall trees challenge satellite views. Fires permitted depending on drought conditions. Firewood sold in office. Fair water pressure with good taste. Nice office store with some groceries, souvenirs, soft drinks, some RV items. Clean, modern restrooms/showers with lots of hot water (score "A"). Propane at $3.00/gallon. Laundry with restricted hours. Token playground. Cable TV. Free Wi-Fi but very limited bandwidth (hard to download anything). Verizon coverage at "4-bars"; Jetpack 4G coverage at "4-bars". Seasonal pool. No noise. Bug Report: tree wasps (no issues as CG has placed traps). No recycle bins. - StephenK

Stayed 2 days while we toured the area and Crater Lake NP. Good hook-ups, clean spacious sites. Level dirt sites, wouldn't want to be here during a rainy time. Gas at the Gold Hill exit is super-duper high, fuel before you get to Gold Hill. Would stay again. - Nevada Nick

This was our second visit to this little park. A lot of permanent residents, but neat and well maintained. WIFI was excellent. Manager was very friendly. We will definitely come back.
Easy on and off for I-5. - vwbluestar

Nice little park. Power is good. Water pressure is OK. Nice and quiet. Since it is small and most are permanents you need to make a reservation ahead of time. Main roads are asphalt and sites are gravel. Pretty level. Have trees for some shade. Grass between sites. The only issue is the 5th wheels park their trucks in front and can be hard to get out. Cannot beat the price of $28. Would stay again. - neilontheroad

Difficult time to stay, region under extreme weather, ice storms, high winds. There were multiple down trees, no staff to check in, park hosts on site, but we didn't have any interaction with them. We are 45' RV w/F250 tow and additional car. We barely fit in site 90, tree next to slide, overlaps next site, but got in! Right on Rogue River, beautiful! Restrooms close by, but did not use. A little close to I5 road noise, but not a problem inside. I think it would be enjoyable in warmer weather! - CupcakeRIA

In October there are a lot of snowbirds stopping at the Valley of the Rogue for an overnight, but even on the weekend, it never completely filled up. If you want a pull through site, you might want to get there by at least late afternoon as some of the sites are not level and will not accommodate long loads and they do fill up. Walking trails were paved and nice. Views of the mountains were wonderful. - Desertthorn

This is another of Oregon's fine state parks. A Loop is for tent or yurt campers (with 2 additional yurts in E Loop). F Loop sites are only electric and water. B, C, D and E Loops have a total of 95 full hookup sites. We found the back-in sites in outside loops (B and D) preferable as they seemed less congested. Most have large grassy areas which are not found at the pull-through spaces. However, most sites in the full hookup areas are quite spacious. The sites closest to the highway can hear the traffic sounds during the night. There are some inconsistencies regarding the amount of shade and sunlight as well as the slant direction of the not-always perfectly level spaces. It is probably best to count on your second and subsequent stays to select your favorite places for reservations. That allows you to walk through the entire campground on the first visit to note your choices. Added features include a volleyball court, coin operated laundries available in Loops C and F, a disc golf course, good walking and bike trails, and, of course a very nice river that flows by the park. Park personnel and camp hosts are friendly and helpful. We will return. - adley s

We spent four leisurely days at Bridgeview RV in Rogue River. We were greeted effusively by the very knowledgeable managers, Georgia and Al who provided us with a ton of very useful southern Oregon literature. In making the phone reservation, Georgia had asked what we were interested in doing during our stay, and the brochures she provided were tailored to those interests (fly fishing, Shakespearean plays in Ashland, and notable wineries).
During the check-in process, I could see that I may have made a mistake in pulling my 5th wheel up to the office. When departing the office area, we barely fit between a motorhome and fifth wheel that seemed to belong to permanent residents residing within 25 feet of the office. Close...very close quarters. Even being guided to our pull-thru spot (#29), we dodged numerous parked vehicles adjacent to their RVs. The helpful guide maneuvered us into our spot with relatively little difficulty. Bridgeview seems to have very few sites for short term RVers, but those sites parallel to the Rogue River are gorgeous! Even with the ever present road noise from Interstate 5, we very much enjoyed our stay.
With a little jockeying we got a good satellite TV signal. Water pressure was very good, but the wifi was very sketchy along the river sites. A lush pet area with beautiful flowers and shrubbery rounds out Bridgeview RV. All in all, we would return to Bridgeview when traveling through southern Oregon. - Professor Ken

First off, the good. l must say the management here is wonderful. They are so helpful and informative, and will go out of their way to help in anyway possible.
We were in a riverfront spot, which was huge. We had room for the fifth wheel, the truck, the car, and a picnic table, and still had tons of room left over.
Park wifi worked pretty well with our wifi ranger, so we saved on our data while we were here. AT&T phone, Verizon data and phone, and our rooftop satellite all worked well. No utility problems. The unobstructed view of the river was very nice.
This park is 80% residents, which only leaves 5-7 spots for short stays. We were highly entertained by the local honkers. They get very territorial during mating season.
Now the not so good... The traffic across the river on I-5 is deafening. Some say it is white noise, but you cannot hold a conversation outside, at a normal level, and after a couple days, it gets quite frustrating.
Due to all the long term residents, maneuvering though to the river front spots can be quite challenging, if they are all
" home ", if you have a bigrig.
We were there during boxelder beetle mating time, and there were literally millions of them. It was ok at first, then it started creeping me out. Also, the trees were shedding some sticky substance, which created the biggest mess we have ever had, and we have traveled many thousands of miles. We still haven't gotten all the sticky stuff off.
Next time we come through the area, we will stay at the State Park down the highway. - Mr&MrsFulltimers

Nice clean park. Grass between lots. Good power and water. Concrete pads and pretty level. The people working here are great and friendly. As other have said will give you lots of info on the area. The only complaint is the road noise. You are parked closed together also. Small park so you better call in advance because all the parks around here fill up fast. Lots of trees for shade. - neilontheroad

Our stay was evidently different from the other reviewers. This is a bare piece of land that provides basic efficiency, but a horrible atmosphere. Literally yards away from I-5, and adjacent to a fairgrounds/horse facility, which makes it very noisy. It's adjacent to a creek with numerous homeless/transient camps. We were awakened by one of them banging on our door, looking for someone else. We walked around some of the ponds and saw syringes and dirty diapers along the paths. Overall a horrible experience. There are lots of nice parks in the area, but this one is toxic. - Bob Carlson

Excellent overnight stop if you're heading south or north. Very easy freeway access (which means it's a bit noisy). Very long concrete, level, pull throughs. Best part? A fenced-in dog run!! Why don't more parks do this?!?! OK, so it's not grass. But it's a comfy pea-gravel with NO stickers to worry about. And there is enough room for the dogs get a good run going. - The Mudbugs

New RV park along the I5 corridor. Made the reservation over the phone (very nice lady) helped me. There are camp hosts at the park to help out if you need. The RV pads are complete as employees finish up on signage, building the office, and other things. Bathrooms and showers are complete andthey are located at each end of the park. No WIFI yet, no cable. But we used our antenna and found about 25 channels. Easy drive to Medford and Jacksonville. We would stay again! - SotoL-L

I have stayed at Moon Mountain RV on numerous occasions over the years. The park was recently acquired by a new owner and who was once a wonderful manager, is leaving. The new owner is extremely unfriendly and unethical. We ended up staying for several nights and had to pay electricity. We took a picture of our meter the day we arrived and he grossly overcharged us. We thought maybe it was a mistake but after running the numbers and confronting him on the issue it became a big battle instead of something he chose to work out with the customer. I was very disappointed. The park was full of dog poop and what used to be the area where I could walk the dog, is closed. In addition, there are aggressive dogs in the park that came after my dog while in our campsite! The freeway noise make the visit more like a truck stop.We stay here for three nights and couldn't wait to leave. We are saddened that the other options in town were full. I would not recommend this place to anyone and I will not be returning again. - RVLife4us

Moon Mtn. RV is currently under new management and ownership as of December 2015. Many positive updates are now in place to make for better wifi and overall experience for guests. The trash is no longer picked up at 5:50am (yeah!) and the laundry and bathrooms are spotless. The manager couldn't be more sincere and helpful and we greatly appreciated his help when we needed to depart a week early from out 1 month stay. The park is clean and quiet despite being near the freeway. The slope of the property keeps traffic noise very low. We enjoyed walking down the road to Tom Pearce Park and playing disc golf and accessing the paved bike and birding paths along the Rouge River. Moon Mtn. RV has level sites on concrete with trees and landscape. The location is ideal to town and a super hub for Crater Lake, river rafting and fishing. We stayed here in a 37 ft 5th wheel for 3 1/2 weeks with two dogs and would return again. This park is safe and the neighbor's were very friendly. - RVLife4us

The manager was very gracious. The park was clean and organized. The only thing we did not like was the spaces are right on top of each other, there wasn't even room for a picnic table. Other than that, pretty nice spot to take a rest. - RVLifer1962

Had a great river front spot at this small park. It has everything you need, but felt a little crowded. The laundry room was big and in good working order. They had recycling available which was nice. - Adventure in Moving

We stayed here 14 nights and loved visiting the area. The WiFi worked good for us and we used it daily. Our site #17 was a challenge to get into because of a big tree at the front and narrow roadways. With the help of our neighbor and taking it slow, we were able to get in. The car and coach just fit. The owners are friendly and willing to help in anyway they can. The grounds are neat and clean. We enjoyed our time here. Lots to see and do in this area. - houseonwheels

WiFi meager at best, beautiful setting all sites are back in and one tight place where we saw a pusher hit a rock on the inside before the grass and had fun backing into his spot. Paved road and concrete pads. - 1200bruce

We chose this park because it offers monthly rates and allows users to have broadband cable hooked up at the site. There is no wifi and occasionally weak cell signal in the park. Pros: site manager is very pro-active, involved and friendly, maintenance crew is great, park is quiet, well-maintained. Cons: stray cats in the park, with their urinating/defecating and fighting were a slight nuisance. There are a lot of long-term residents and some of the rigs are showing age. The area is industrial and there was some noise at night related to industrial activities. The area around the park has a lot of transient / drug user folks passing through, although we did not have any problems with theft and never felt unsafe. Overall, though, it was a fairly convenient location for visiting attractions in Southern Oregon, such as Crater Lake, while still being close to Medford. It is in a semi-rural area with a beautiful view of Mt McLoughlin and quaint ranches with mini-horses and goats, etc. Even though we weren't sure what to think when we first arrived, and this place is not a "resort" type park, we would stay here again. Our three months here were pleasant and fit our needs well. - ErikaN

Much as other reviewers said. Nice little park, we got in after dark, and some one was there to help us find our spot and led us to it. Left at first light. A little steep for what you get, but it is right where we want it as we head south. Wish they were PA. Quiet and near stores. We will stay here again. - Kalama Traveler

This park is about 5 miles from I-5 which helps it not be so loud. They have full hookups with cable, 50 amp, pull through, no wifi. The street is paved and site is gravel and needs a little leveling on your part. The showers are good size (group dressing area). The ladies area is decently clean, but the men's could use cleaning more often. There is a reasonably priced laundry room with two of each. The grass is kept mowed. There is a little patch of grass between some sites. There is no store in this park. This exit off the interstate has good shopping like Walmart, Target, Lowe's, many places to eat, Costco. To find the park it's easier to turn on Merry Lane instead of Gramercy Dr (which your GPS may tell you) (both get you there). And a tip to leave: Turn right out of the park and follow it around then turn left at the stop sign and it takes you to a traffic light at hwy 62 which gets you to I-5. - Jjtrips
