25 Parks near Gold Hill, Oregon
Jul 2016 - $26.00
This Oregon State Park has real possibilities but also has issues. First, the positives. It's right off the I-5 freeway so access is easy. The park runs alongside the Rogue River so the scenery is beautiful. Many critters and birds abound in the park. The hosts and rangers are helpful and pleasant.
On the negative side, being a state park, it has to serve everyone. The homeless have figured out how to game the system and practically live there full time. Some seem to have figured out ways to sneak in late and leave early to evade park fees. No one caused a problem but their makeshift tents are unsightly. The freeway noise can be annoying if you're a light sleeper. At some sites, the ground squirrels have torn up the ground to the point where one could break an ankle. $26 per night for electric and water with no discount for weekly rates seems steep.
The rules seem to be guidelines and no one seems too concerned about enforcing them. People brazenly cut through others' sites and the restrooms/showers can look like a frat house bathroom. - LM&TinView

Nice Oregon State Park by the rogue River.
Black top sites with some full hook-ups, some water & electric.
Sites are located around camping loops with nice grass areas and trees. Good amount of space between sites. Nice walking trails through the park and along the river.
Can be challenging to find satellite access for roof mounted satellites. - Navy RV Traveler

Stayed for three nights. This is a very nice Oregon state park. Pad was level and fit our 40' motorhome and towed vehicle easily. Our site had full hookups and all utilities were conveniently located and worked well. We backed right up to the Rogue River and you could hear the rapids at night. Conveniently located to the area attractions. - RognBon

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

This park is the model of what every rv park should be. It is green and beautiful and there are NO seasonal sites. Lots of young families with children and a river to swim in. We would have stayed longer but it was booked up and we had to give up our site to the next camper. We would go back there in a second! You will feel welcome as soon as you check in as the park hosts stop by and introduce themselves and explain all of the ameneties and nearby tourist attractions. We enjoyed our stay. - Perfection expected

Beautiful, well maintained, small park on the river's edge. We had a 31' class C motor home and we moved in comfortably around mature cottonwood trees. The only reason we rated a 9 is because a number of the sites are tight. But love being close to the Rouge river, and this location has a shared sandy beach for all guests to enjoy. Even if you have an interior space, you can bring your chair over and enjoy the water. (Pretty cold and it is moving at a good clip!)
Concrete pad, full hook up, on the river for $40 is a good deal! We were only passing thru, but like this spot so much, hope to come back and stay a couple of days! - ktboz

Always a great place to stay and the managers are very friendly and take pride in their service and the overall condition of the park. Narrow roads and a steep driveway down to the park from the hwy. Some of the sites need to have the pads replaced. The road through the campground is narrow. - Bob2013

Right off I-5, but noise wasn't bad. Sites are paved, level, nice and wide. Little privacy between sites. Park was clean and well manicured. Didn't use facilities -- showers were 25 cents for 8 minutes -- what!!? WiFi was very poor, frustrating to use. - Christopher Scott

This is our third stay in this park. We asked for a space over next to the creek and were accommodated. There was just enough room for our big truck/camper and our pull car. There are quite a few permanent residents but for the most part, their sites were nicely maintained and they people were friendly. A lot of people had dogs, but they were always leashed when walked and well behaved. Everyone used the grassy dog walking area and when we walked our dog there it was clean. Freeway noise was not detected. In fact, the only noise was gentle burbling of beautiful Bear Creek as it passed by the front of our rig. Wi-Fi was fast and reliable. We come here for three days to attend theatre in Ashland and find the RV park perfect for our needs. - Hayduke Lives

Park is clean, quite a few pull through sites long enough for our pickup & 30' pull trailer. Avoid site B-9 if there was rain, it is only site that has standing water during rain periods. Wi-fi not too bad, cable ok a bit fuzzy. The two persons in office we had contact were friendly and they have excellent cookies and coffee in office area with table for guests. Would stay again next time in area. - Buguy5940

Park flyer indicated Good Sam but that appears out of date. Many permanent residents. Some with mini gardens on their lot. Number of what appear to be "dead" cars parked on site. Rules for site maintenance not enforced i.e. unattended campsites with what appear to be abandoned RVs. Pool has no water in it. Property has For Sale signs. Stayed because of convenient to friend living nearby. Don't think I would stay again. - Tireman9

We pulled into the campground just after 5pm, but the office was closed. On looking around at the available spots, we drove through but decided to go back to the last campground we passed. This one was just too scary looking--many long-term units in disrepair with junk around them and boarded up windows. We decided not to stay. - Thomastravelers

It is next to I-5, easy in and out. The rate is Passport America. Spent 1 night. There are 2 sections in the park, the front section has a mix of permanent and over night guests but the back section is all permanent and in very bad condition. Our spot was black top and long enough for our trailer and truck. There is grass and trees. There are no pull through sites but easy back ins. There is some freeway noise. It is not a place to spend much time. - thegoodsons

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

This RV park's daily rate with Good Sam discount is $48. I do not see any amenity that would justify such a high daily rate. They do have a swimming pool but does not justify such high daily rate.
The sites are paved and level. There is no shade at any of the sites and offers good satellite reception. Long term resident sites appeared trashy and not well maintained. The bathrooms are clean but the ventilation is non-existent which caused the doors to be propped open. It is very hard to have a relaxing bathroom break while listening to conversation in the laundry room which is right outside the bathroom.
No, we won't be coming back here because of the high daily rate and we don't feel we got what we paid for. - gartail

Roadways and sites are paved. Sites are plenty long and adequately wide. Utilities worked well and are in the correct place mid-site. WIFI and cable TV worked well. Road noise was minimal even though park is near I-5. Park is easy to access and well designed which makes it a good stop over. Nonetheless, the price is about 30% high. Resort it is not. - ramblin' vagabonds

We stayed here for a week. We have stayed here before as there aren't many options in the area. This stay was worst than previous stays as the condition of the park has gone down.
The park is a short drive from I-5 (Exit 24) along multi-lane busy roads. There is major interchange construction so access is changing during the project. The park is located behind the motel. Registration is in the motel's office. Of the 31 sites, 25 appeared to be LONG term. The condition of the long term sites really impacts the overall appearance of the park. One of the term tenants appeared to be park maintenance.
The sites are a mixture of back-ins and pull-throughs. The few pull-throughs that were available are angled so there are easily accessed. But there are some trees at the exit end of the sites which are growing so they are starting to encroach on the lane of travel. This park understands the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level site, as the sites were level and flat. Distance and a short fence around the utility connections establish privacy between the sites but there isn't much privacy as the sites are close to each other.
There are a few trees scattered around the park so satellite reception would be dependent upon site assignment and your dish configuration. During our stay the trees started to fill out impacting reception. The park brochure didn't show any cable or broadcast channels. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels.
The park provided WiFi was adequate. Our Verizon WiFi hotspot worked well. The NET10 phone worked well.
The designated fenced pet area was in the center of the park. It had a gravel surface but a lot of weeds growing through the gravel. No bags were provided for waste collection only a can and shovel. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the surface streets and the residential area near the park.
The landscape needed a lot of attention as there were weeds growing everywhere and the grass was very tall. - bsb814

This is well-kept basic park with few amenities. I wouldn't call it a "Resort" since there are no amenities other than laundry and restrooms. "RV Park" would be a better naming choice. The park is very well maintained. We've stayed at about 40 parks in the past 2 years, and this may be best landscaped and maintained park we've been too. Very clean, tidy, easy to navigate. There is a lot of road noise, if that sort of thing bothers you (it doesn't bother us). - JPen365

I've stayed at this park several times over the last few years. It's a nicely landscaped park. Spaces are somewhat close to each other. The downside to this park is the road noise which is very noticeable outside. Once you leave the hiway you must go a few blocks and then double back to the park because of one way streets. It's well marked and not a problem. Wifi worked well, and Direct TV Sat was not a problem. - supercub

This is a great park with cable and good wifi. The disadvantage is the highway noise. Not a problem at night unless windows are open but since the nights were in the 40's didn't affect us. Would stay again as town is nice and good for day trips. - littlegeneral

What a wonderful find at the end of a long drive from Seattle! A pool and shade on a hot day, just minutes from I-5. We are on a path to California, but what a treat to spend a a night in a park-like setting. Quiet, with manicured acreage to just hang out and wind down. Wonderful amenities , including a pool, family friendly, but managed to be quiet and slow-paced. Turn off your tv and roam. Oh, yes, the turns might be a LITTLE tight, but you get trees! We are not expert drivers, but we were fine here. Feels like one of the private parks. - Coloradorver

Quiet campground in a park-like setting. The staff (which appears to be one person) is friendly. capable, and accommodating. The baths, showers and laundry are very clean. I'm only giving this a lower score because there is no cable, the WiFi is extremely slow, and there are PAY showers. I haven't run into pay showers in a campground in years. - cactuslady

The best thing about this park, for us, was NO road noise. Sites are plenty wide enough, and many have a small deck with a picnic table, but turns were tight and some branches needed to be cut back. Also, entry/exit lane was long, but too narrow and would require one RV to pull onto grass if there was an entry and an exit at the same time. Shade trees were nice, but at the time of year we were there, the ones at our site were dropping a lot of acorns on the RV, and us. Large flocks of turkeys walking through the site and ducks in the pond were fun to watch, and didn't cause any noticeable mess, but we did not have a dog. Showers use quarters. Mail slots for long term residents were in the laundry room where anyone could have access to it. We enjoyed our 4 day stay, but left with some dents and mild scratches. - Steve & Mary

We were here over labor day and were lucky enough to get the biggest site they had for our 35' motorhome with a huge covered patio and "backyard" area. It's a funky little place where we've been before so knew what to expect. We were surprised that there was only a water and electric hook-up and no cable and sewer as others had stated on here that they had. We did not hook-up to the water. We were able to get a few local TV stations with our antenna and our Verizon MiFi, cell phone & AT&T cell phone all worked well here. We would definitely stay here again. - Bill & Debby's Wild Ride

The only reason to stay here is the large swimming pool, spa and sauna. The camp ground is nearly all long term residents and most sites are junky. There are only a few sites available for brief stays. The spa and pool are open to the public. - waterwoman

WARNING!!!! DON'T HOOKUP TO THE RV PARK WATER! Make sure your tanks are full before staying here. The sulfur water is not only smelly, but attracts flies as the smell is kin to a carcass. This campground is more for people coming to use the Springs. As stated there is only 5 available spots, the rest is taken by hippie-oneness. Management accommodating & hard working, the rest of the staff is not. Nice facilities for the Springs. Nice pool, hot springs pool, sauna & spa. It seems they only use the sulfur water as the secondary water & tap into a separate spring for the pools. Good place to rent a tee pee, swim naked after dark & remember your youth. - millie5
