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

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

The people in the office were super nice and helpful. When we first arrived I was pretty depressed at the idea of spending 4 nights here as the sites are very close together and visually there is no break from the stacks and stacks of RVs down the interior roads. There seem to be lots of perms and semi-perms and I was dreading the "people noise" that can come with that situation. Turns out I was wrong. For a tightly packed space the park was very quiet on the inside. People were nice and very courteous and everyone kept dogs and kids under control. True, we were gone most of the day and evening, but when we were here it was fairly pleasant. We did not use the bathrooms or laundry or Wifi. The interior roads are very narrow - but paved - as are the sites. It is barely big rig friendly and we disconnected at the entrance which made getting into the narrow pull through site a little easier. We were on a concrete pad but it was not level. There is a small concrete patio for sitting but no picnic table - or you could park a small car there. My pickup truck was too big and we had to squeeze it in sideways at the back of the site. We stayed here specifically for the convenience of hosting our son on vacation and visiting Portland/Mt Hood. I would stay again for that reason but would not come back if it were for my personal vacation. - kdlee747

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

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

I have been full-timing for 16 years, with two to three one-week stays at this park each year. The park is as clean as it ever has been; the staff is friendly and helpful; and the location in/near a major city can not be beat. Safeway and Target are a mile or less away. Every time I pull into the park I am reminded that it is in the flight path of PDX airport with engines roaring overhead. But by the time I get settled in and ready for the first night's sleep, the jet noise has become a background disturbance that my mind ignores. This park truly is impacted by cars, jets, ships, and trains -- the sounds of an active community that provides unlimited opportunities to explore! - EarthTrek

This was a base camp while we toured the surrounding sites in and around Portland. Unfortunately we were not impressed. The campground is located West of the Portland airport so we experienced lots of jet noise not only from commercial aircraft but there must be a military base near by as fighter aircraft were also in the air. Campground is located in a busy part of town. We had road noise but Portland traffic to deal with.
Our site was rather small with about a 6' strip of grass between us and our neighbors on either side. Tight to back in. The back of our camp site faced a public street with no fence or other security separating the two. Water connection was partially buried. Site was level and paved. We did not use the pool. Restrooms and showers were clean and secured. On site laundry room was also clean. - JABMPM

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

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

Best kept secret. No reservations. I was able to get a site last minute on weekends. The park has 2 great green parks, kids' activities and water access. Hosts are great people and keep all areas CLEAN. Great park centrally located. - Doctorlock

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
