22 Parks near Mapleton, Oregon
Jun 2013 - $20.00
After reading prior reviews, this RV park was extremely disappointing. They lost our reservation though we really didn't need one as there was only one other trailer in the park other than those that are left on a more permanent basis. The river-side sites are for tent-camping and most of the sites closest to the river are taken by trailers left long-term. The place really needs some TLC though the restrooms and showers were clean. There is a lot of debris (cigarette butts, downed limbs, trash) around the sites. The young woman who checked us in was friendly, but not at all efficient. She forgot to give us the bathroom code or the key to the dock. We won't be back. - Campy

One of the best parks we've ever stayed at. The hosts were simply outstanding-helpful, friendly-even gave us free ice. Hookups were great and worked well in a beautiful setting, on the river. The area is heavily treed and very quiet. Showers and bathrooms were homey-clean and well maintained. The setting is great and they have made it charming and service oriented. We would stay here again-go out of our way even-any time. One could stay for multiple days. Only 14 miles from the coast. - Trailering Daval

The park is very clean and quiet. Easy access into the park. Trees are trimmed high enough as not to do damage to your rig. Park is in the process of installing cable TV at no extra cost. This park also has a dock with a security gate for $10.00 per day to moor your boat. We were able to buy groceries at the market up the street and the little town of Mapleton has a gas station with a deli. - cleanmchn

This is a clean, quiet park. Sites are grass and fine gravel, near level, shady, in various sizes. Roads are dirt and gravel, adequately wide, in fair condition with shallow ruts and potholes. Staff are friendly and helpful. Verizon data service works, but can be very slow. Wi-Fi works well. Showers are clean, but the hot water runs out too soon. The rate is total for a back-in with water, electric, and cable. A pull-through with full hookups is $32.70. - wjzcbn

Could use sewer at all sites, rest rooms clean, beautiful lake, very friendly staff. - Mike & Marcia
Aug 2015 - $20.00
I stayed in site 33, very secluded, in a 21' motor home, more than enough room, but would be cramped in a 28' rig or greater. Sites are separated by shrubbery. Gravel interior roads and sites, but level. WiFi works well, but cellphone is poor at best. Managers are very friendly and helpful. Great park. However, this is an Elks park and membership is necessary. Well used park, so reservations are needed. - Old RVer

Not a whole lot to add. It's boondocking in a casino parking lot. On a positive note, the lot was free, level, clean and randomly patrolled. On the negative side, it may be free but you pay for it by putting up with people who don't particularly "play well with others." Others parked haphazardly, resulting in unsafe conditions, inconvenience and annoyance. For example, in one section most were parked in an east/west orientation when two large Class A motorhomes decided to park north/south, blocking a driveway and limiting access.
We lucked out and grabbed a space along the west edge where we could look out over sand dunes and sawgrass. - LM&TinView

I just wanted to update what others have already said. Yes, this is dry camping in a casino parking lot, but it's free! Free is a very good price! You can even stay up to seven days if you want to although we only overnighted here. It's great to have the casino right there to eat if you don't feel like cooking, and of course to gamble if that's your thing. This is an awesome option to have in your back pocket if you decide to head to the coast on a whim and don't have reservations. - Pdxjoanne

Earlier reviews are good, just updating for 2014. I used this as a base to see the beautiful Oregon coast. Groceries and fuel are readily available. Would certainly stay here again. The price (free) is right! - SailorGolf

We were at first taken back by the "parking lot " appearance of the park. (All concrete with small trees between the sites.) But that was quickly gone after going into the office and being warmly greeted by the lady manager! A lovely woman who made us feel welcome, explained the park, showed us around the rec room, and gave us some good info on the surrounding area. The park is tightly spaced, but maneuverable. Convenient to shopping and Old Towne. We were here for only 2 nights, but would definitely recommend this park to anyone traveling through the area. - KSAM14

Very quiet and clean, decent spacing (but close as I'd want to be), laid out to maximize privacy (given it is fairly tight). Plenty of room for slideouts and even awnings (except with the wind, no one used theirs). Level concrete pads, concrete roads. Some trees between sites. Helpful staff guides you to site.
Very windy every afternoon (20+mph). Excellent utilities in pullthrus. Three washers and dryers in rec room, pool table, recliners, restrooms. Some sites had picnic tables.
Slow Verizon data (1 bar 4G), decent AT&T cellular phone and data.
Lots of rules, most of which are common sense. Fenced dog run (small, gravel) with sign saying cctv monitored and failure to pick up after dogs will result in immediate expulsion from park and other parks will be contacted about you as well.
We could park our Jeep across the front of the site, most 5th wheels parked trucks around the park perimeter.
A good number of seasonal and long-term rigs, all well-maintained. Looks like the short-term spaces are pull-thrus in the middle of the park.
A very nice park, we would return. - SW Rick

Easy in and out. Utilities in the center of the site and worked fine. Cable TV was not high definition, so we used our antenna, instead, along with our satellite TV. WIFI was fine most of the time, but every couple of days would just knock us off the Internet. We would disconnect and reconnect and would be fine again for another couple of days. They have picnic tables, but they are not at the sites. In this site there was no room for one because of the shrubbery, but apparently you can request one to be put on your site. Rate shown was for our 6 week stay. - ramblin' vagabonds

The new owners/managers/hosts are a big improvement. Unlike the previous ones, they are friendly, positive and responsive. Park upkeep and maintenance is better plus the added security is much better. The only downside it that the park is busier and there is more traffic. Apparently the park has a new cable TV service which has terrible reception on a limited number of channels. - Zippity Doo-Da

This is not an RV park, but a small, old trailer park with a portion set up for RVs. There is lots of paving and little in the way of landscaping. No pull-thrus and only 30 amp electrical. The spaces are narrow and some of the interior access roads are tight. Certainly not big rig friendly. Any RV over 35 ft. would have trouble maneuvering. About half of the RV sites are occupied by permanent residents and some of these are quite old. The park is well taken care of and there is not the clutter that usually comes with permanents. Other than beach walks and a few decent restaurants, there isn’t much to do in Florence, plus the park has only limit services. According to the residents, the couple that is managing the park inherited it a few years ago and have recently listed it for sale. Unless significant improvements are made, we will not return. - Zippity Doo-Da

This is a small, older and very basic combo park. It’s clean and the landscaping is well maintained. There are approximately 30 RV spaces and about the same number of mobile home sites. A majority of the RV spaces are occupied by long termers. The spaces are on the small side, but are adequate for all but the largest RVs. The park has very few amenities. There is only 30 amp service and no pull-throughs or grass areas, just pavement with minimal landscaping. Be aware that the park is not ADA compliant. The park has decent, free WiFi and a small “Rec” building. This building is often used by some of the long term RVers as their personal lounge. Most of the residents are friendly, but the current management is not. We have been coming here for a month or so each summer for the past few years and will return because of the friends we have made here. For those who want or need more, there is a much nicer park just a couple of blocks away. - Zippity Doo-Da

Same as Lagoon USFS campground. This is a nice campground if you have a small RV or a tent. Big rigs BEWARE! Narrow road with extremely tight turns and low hanging branches will make you sorry that you ever tried this place. We couldn't do it with 36' rig. Only loop A offers electrical hook-ups. - SKP
Sep 2013 - $15.00
The cost reflects Senior Pass + electricity. Lovely park. Although for a 40' MH it was a little tight getting into. It is concessionaire run, rather than volunteer and that probably accounted for the not so clean restrooms. The concessionaires are also responsible for the trimming of the trees too, so that accounts for the scratches on the rig. It is VERY shady in most of the park and most sites turn to mud when it rains. Verizon signal was just OK, had to use the antenna and amp for the internet. But all that being said we appreciated the electricity and enjoyed our weeks stay. - rhianna

Very nice Forest Service campground. Only partially opened when we were here (April), but we walked around the other (closed) loops and everything looked much the same as our loop. 30 amp electric at some sites (like ours); look for "E" on campsite number post. No dump site available. Water at scattered faucet posts (not for hookup--carry a bucket). Running water/flush toilets in restrooms. Very heavily shaded. Our trailer is 34' and we found a site, but I but a lot of the sites would have been too small. The pull-through sites on our loop didn't have electric, our host told us. Don't know about the rest of the park. Some great hiking trails around the campground. Open year round. Fee reflects senior pass discount. - The Accidental Trailerist

This is one of the nicest Elks Lodge RV facilities we have seen. Unlike most Elks, where you stay in a parking spot behind a lodge in town, this is actually an RV park for Elks members only, about 5 miles north of the Town of Florence. It has back-in and pull-through sites, plenty of shade and room between sites. There are plantings between sites to provide privacy. The showers & restroom are spotless and the grounds are well maintained. The staff is helpful and pleasant. The sites have only water & electric hookups, but there are 2 convenient dump stations on the grounds. - gtogrl

Florence Elks club have 2 RV Parks, one at the Elks Lodge and a park like setting approximately 3 miles north of Lodge. We stayed at the RV park north of town Nice campground with clean bath rooms and showers. The park hosts were the best. They are very friendly and tried to meet any of your needs. I had RV problems and even though they were full, the hosts made sure I had a space for the three extra days it took to get my RV fixed. Wifi was good with our booster antenna. Park has a cell phone amplifier at clubhouse so you can use cell in the lodge only. The clubhouse also has a landline available for local calls which really helped. Each spot have bushes dividing sites. Dog friendly. Most sites can get satellite reception. We would stay there again. The one drawback was that did not have sewer at site. - Mac1

Stayed over 4th of July for 3 days. This park does Nothing to maintain the place: dirt, gravel, weeds with stickers. The restrooms are pretty iffy at best,t due to local transients hanging around.
Location is good next to Oldtown, but for the price it's poor. - Jerryandsherrie
Jul 2016 - $41.00
Lower value rating due to $10 reservation fee. I really hate places like this, they have a full time person on duty during the days and they think they can charge extra for making a reservation. On a short stay, that really gets felt in the nightly rate of $31 for a back in site.
Most sites are fairly level and are hard packed gravel / stone surface. We had a 50 amp FHU with cable. The cable lineup was good, but the picture quality was borderline. The wi-fi was so so, we were getting dropped or not able to get on at all most of the time.
For what they charge, the cable and wi-fi should both be outstanding. But they are both less than acceptable. - Bob and Inga

This was our first visit (April) and after checking in and parking we felt like this was more of a State RV Park. Not many amenities other than easy walking distance to "Old Town. We did stay in site B2, which backs up to our site, so the view from the "B" sites are great. But it is also a Marina so in the summer it may be more of a fishing RV park! Unless you are on the waterfront sites there is no view of the river, other than seeing their big powder blue storage sheds. Not all site locations have full hookups. Gravel roads and site, ours was very level. The staff is very pleasant and made us feel welcome. The location was easy to get to. Since we were here in the Spring, we enjoyed the spacing of other travelers, but from other comments, sounds like the Summer months can be very cramped with lots of people. So we do plan to return this way again, but most likely would choose Spring or Fall. - mandrgames
