We stayed 3 nights midweek in our 40' motorhome. Our site was right on the river. We had a very enjoyable time and had to say that it was the quietest campground that we have ever stayed. It is 30amp electrical water and some sites sewer. Most of the campground was long term residents but that was no problem. The bathroom was on the rustic side but kept clean. There was a shower in each of the bathrooms. There was no wifi but the Verizon signal was good. - Oregonhikers

A quiet park with a friendly lady that checked us in at her little store. It seemed there were mostly year around rigs in the park with many of them having an accumulation of possessions stored under and around their RVs. The river frontage sites were mostly very close together as were most of the other sites. We can handle rustic, but the sites being placed so close together and only 30 amp power means we probably would not return. - run2

We had easy access from I5 coming south and upon leaving the I5 access going south we crossed three lanes for entrance. Our site at park was large, good utilities and location of utilities, cable tv, cement and grass with no table. Definitely big rig easy and will return. The only real negatives are airplane noise and resident workers leaving at 5am. Will return. - RJourney

City RV park near the Columbia River and very near the airport. So yes, you are going to hear planes and sometimes it's deafening. Neat and tidy, most residents are just that, living there and working. Very quiet at night. Bathrooms were nice and clean. Laundry on site also. There is a group room. All paved. Sites are concrete, but very skinny. My door ended up on the grass, which was a mud hole. It rained an entire day, then the sprinklers run every night, so always muddy. This is not a good park for dogs, but if you need to be in the city, and you take your dog with you, there are many places to take your dog and Portland in general is very dog friendly.
The Dogs Opinion (it's all about the dogs): There is a pretty nasty postage stamp dog park across the road that is owned by the RV park. It's just dirt, and because of the rain, it was a mud pit. There are signs everywhere to not let your dog onto the grass, so I took my dogs to the dog park, then walked them in the street next door with houses. That was pleasant. Just east on Marine drive, just past Salty's restaurant, is a big marina and parking lot, go to the far end. You are supposed to pay $5 to park. You can walk down to the beach on the river then hook up with a trail. There is also a paved bike path but I would not walk dogs there, as there are many bicyclist. The beach and trail are lovely and quiet. You can have your dogs off leash here. Also there are many parks in the city that have an off leash area that is unfenced. There are fenced dog parks not too far. Use the Dog Goes dog park finder app to see all the parks.
TV? Cable TV with good channels. Very nice, even had the OWN channel.
Cell phone/Wi-Fi? Speedtest? Verizon is strong here. The RV park Wi-Fi is 1.5 ish mpbs. Too slow for me, I used my jet pack. - Tails From The Road

10 level sites. Good location easy off and on freeway. Without full hookup I cannot give any site more than 8. But it is a good place other than that issue. - Gilbert & Gail

One of the few long stay parks in the area that still has some sites for under $500 a month. Most of the spaces are on gravel, except some of the back loop spaces are on concrete pads, all roads are gravel. Few permanent residents, but most are there for work on the Intel Campuses in Hillsboro are not permanent. Front Spaces rates breakdown at: Monthly: $375 Weekly: $140 Daily: $45 Back Spaces rates breakdown at: Monthly: $425 Weekly: $160 Daily: $50 Front spaces are mostly 30amp service, with a few spots that have 30 and 50 amp. Back spaces all have 50 amp service. Electricity is metered on monthly stays. There is no Wifi, Verizon Wireless is the best option for internet in the area, other Wireless carriers signals are weak. TV is by antenna, or your own satellite system. - The Redneck Express

If you're looking for a long term stay RV Park, Island Cove is one of the few you'll find for under $500 a month in the Portland area that have monthly rates available (Multnomah County actually has a law not allowing extended stays at RV Parks). The closer together front side-sites are 30 amp and $350 a month, the back, more spaced out sites with the concrete pads and 50 amp service, "Premium" as the previous reviewer called them, are $400 a month. The park does have Wi-Fi, however, the speed can be hit and miss as its satellite based (No wired High Speed is available past the County Line). - The Redneck Express

We did not stay here. We didn't have reservations, called and spoke to on-site manager who was very helpful and had a couple of open sites. We pulled in and were somewhat put off. Appears mostly long term residents, some sites were junky and on lawn area. The premium sites were cleaner with newer units on concrete pads but none available when we needed to stay. We were not willing to stay in the lower cost area, it is not our style of camping. Cash only at this park if you intend to stay: we were quoted $30/night. - KitandDH

Unusual place; a mix of good and annoying features. The good: clean asphalt sites separated by generous grassy areas with picnic tables, bathrooms clean and warm, lovely river walkway. The bad: unfriendly and very unhelpful office staff, very poor wifi, rigs back up to each other, train and airplane noise. The unusual: the RV sites are a small part of a very old mobile home park, some well maintained, some not. The most striking feature is the constant stream of airplanes gearing down to land at nearby Portland International; I'm talking major planes flying very low overhead. We were here for a single night stopover heading north on I-5 and actually would stay again for one night. - Kcflowers

Spaces too close together, too many people. Next to mobile home park which is a little run down. - Judy2shoes

I need to preface this review by saying we stayed here the previous May and did not have the problems I am about to review.
We finished up a volunteer stint in eastern Washington 9/12 and planned to spend a few days in Portland with our daughter. Jantzen Beach is reasonably close to her. When we are traveling, we try not to disconnect the truck from our fifth wheel, so we always request a pull through and advise we need enough room for this. It was not a problem whe we stayed in May, although admittedly very tight.
When we arrived my husband went in to check in and looked at the map for the site we were assigned. He pointed out it was not the pull thru we needed. He was promptly advised specific types were not reservable. It had not been a problem in May when we requested the same thing. We went down and looked at the back in site and weren't sure we could even get our fiver in it. Back at the office, the manager told my hubby no one reserves specific site types. Being full timers that travel extensively, we know this is simply not true. We ended up leaving and stayed somewhere else. Luckily, they don't take a credit card up front, so we weren't charged. - Patmo13

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

We stayed here for a week. Spaces are really close, WiFi is terrible. Very few cable channels.
Office personnel is very friendly. They do let you wash your car. Probably would not stay here again. - tookie

This was our first stay at a commercial RV park after the purchase of our fifth-wheel. We hated it - just a parking lot that has been parceled out for maximum profit. Owner & manager stuffed rigs in right next to each other even though park was sparsely occupied. Totally obsessed with their unimpressive narrow grass strips. This park left us feeling like we needed to get our rig outfitted for boondock camping pronto as this sort of park is like living in tenement housing. - MikenTerri

There are mostly long term people. The parks hostess is very nice. There is a long down hill driveway when you enter. There are only a few TV channels and half the time some don't work. The WiFi is iffy at best.
When I pointed it out and asked if there was any compensation-the answer was that the repair man was coming from Canada and he would be there in a few days. No refund of any kind.
For the price you would think that there would be more amenities.
You are paying for a place to park on a cement pad. The neighbor was so close that we could not put our awning down. - rvfool

I have actually stayed at this park several times. It is just a couple miles from the Airstream dealer and works great when I am taking my RV in for service.
The gate is closed from 10pm to 5am. And the host specifically checked that I had holding tanks. (Mine is the Airstream Mercedes Sprinter van, so a bit incogneto)
When I have been here in the summer the park has been popular during the day. Things quiet down at night.
This is a great inexpensive place to stay when in the Portland area.
The only reason I gave a lower rating on the cleanliness and the site is because it's been rainy, and the sites are pretty much all muddy. It doesn't not seem they have done anything to mitigate the mud.
The spaces are close together. Plenty of room for a van, someone with slide outs on both sides may find it rather snug.
The host was friendly, as they have been in the past as well.
I would recommend this park to anyone who wanted a safe, friendly stopover in the Portland area. - StormRunner

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

Clean, well kept park. Quiet. Close to Costco for gas. - sp123

This is an easy location right off I-5, with nice landscaping and paved interior. Sites are close, but not a problem to get into, and level, no picnic table. We did not have to unhook our travel trailer in our pull thru; there are also back in sites. Nice clubhouse, pool, showers, and laundry room. All hookups worked fine. My big negative was no wifi at my site, but worked fine at the office area, lots of tall trees. Good Cable TV. There is a shopping center across the street with Costco, Subway, Panda Express, and a pizza place, etc. - trussman

Very clean park. Office is way back in the back of park. Some traffic noise, but not bad. Clean park. Spaces tight and they don't want you to park on grass, but not enough room for vehicle and camper. - DRBurns

I've visited here many times over the last 11 years and if never seems to change...except they keep raising the nightly/weekly rates. WiFi is email and FB speed only, short term pads are broken up and tilt to the right (uncomfortable during showers and stuff), cable requires box, with a $50 deposit (refundable), and then doesn't work (OTA is OK though), bathroom is clean but it's 100 yards away, and requires a key ($5 deposit...refundable). All in all, I would not stay here if it wasn't so conveniently close to my friends living in the area...
When I'm lucky, and a good pad opens up, I stay here for weeks at a time. But that was last year and years past when the weekly was $180, now it's freaking $220. Really, place isn't worth that. - User35

The place is rundown with 99 percent permanent residents. The pads are terribly un level and narrow. The manager is an older woman with a nasty attitude. Don't waste your time stopping here - Doctorlock

Price was OK for the area and what you get. Office personal was very dramatic and every request and change seemed to frustrate her. Most sites are permanent residents. Laundry and restrooms are clean and nice. Most spots have trees, making it difficult for satellites to receive. We would not stay here again if we could find another place. - JoyceG
