Very nice park. Right off the freeway. It is about 100 yards wide between the freeway and very active train tracks. Good park, clean restrooms, noisy trains. Would stay here again if in the area. About 1 hour to Portland. Good place to stay and visit the River and Hood Mountain. Rode up to Mt. Saint Helens which is about 2 hours away. We camped at Viento State Park in a Motorhome.

This place is a God -send for anyone in transit down the Gorge needing a place to bed down for the night. It's beautiful, right between 1-84 and the Columbia River. In a motorhome with windows closed noise was not an issue, but I could see how it could be in a tent. My dog and I enjoyed the river in the morning before heading back on the road. We camped at Viento State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a campground, not an RV park, my rating is based on what I think of what is a excellent campground. I gave it a 7 simply because it is between a working railroad (with trains going e/b and w/b at all different times of the day) and it being so close to I-84 with all the traffic noise. The trains blow their horns as they approach the river access crossing, it is deafening, but one seems to get use to it if you stay long enough, the same for the highway noise. It is a beautiful, well maintained state park right next to the Columbia River. There are lots of things to do in the Gorge. We camped at Viento State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here in mid-May. We counted 12 trains between 10pm and 8am each night, and they blew their horns repeatedly right behind the campsites. This should be a day-use park only, as it is beautiful and has nice river access and amenities, but don't expect to get any sleep unless you are totally deaf. We camped at Viento State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Beautiful park but very noisy as previous post explained. When I woke up the next morning I felt like i had been in a train wreck. I'll pass on this one next time. We camped at Viento State Park in a Motorhome.

This park, in the Columbia River Gorge, is sandwiched between the noisy pavement on I-84 and the busy Union Pacific train tracks. The tracks are about 150 feet from the park and when the westbound train approaches, the first sound is the very loud horn as it approaches the crossing in park. The train will likely wake you up at night. The RV sites and the road are paved, with good shade and shelter from the strong winds in this area. 56 RV sites have electric and water, and the rest are dry. Each RV site has a screened pit for dumping gray water, a first for us. Each RV site is paved; 30 feet is about the maximum length of RV, although a couple of longer Class As fit in without any problem. There is no campground host, although a volunteer who lives at the maintenance facility does offer firewood for sale and fixed a problem with the electric service in the park. The primitive tent camping area is across the interstate from the rest of the campground. There is a day use access to the Columbia River; campers do not pay more to use it. There is no dump station in the park. Our Verizon air card did not work well here, with only intermittent connectivity. Under Oregon's 3 nights for the price of two, we stayed here for under $11 a night. Go to www.oregon.gov/OPRD to print out the coupon for the third night (Sunday-Thursday). The campground is first come first serve and is handy for exploring Hood River, kiteboarding and wind sailing on the Columbia River, Mount Hood, and the lovely Historic Columbia Gorge Highway or Trail. We enjoyed our stay in the park, and we'd stay here again. We camped at Viento State Park in a Motorhome.
