27 Parks near Portland, Oregon
Jul 2009 - $18.00
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

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

Cost is a monthly rate. This park is within 2.5 miles of the yellow line Expo train terminal. We purchased metro coupons and NEVER took the car into Portland. The convenience and cost is priceless. $5.00 a day allows you to ride train, bus and trolly. There is actually a stop at a nearby Fred Meyer grocery on the ride home. We often stopped and bought groceries on way home in the evening. Marine drive is a shortcut to I-84 and all that the Columbia River/gorge offers. All utilities located at rear of coach and worked well. Cable free as is wifi and both worked well. Concrete pad, however slanted front to back. Tow car parked beside coach.
The sites are very close together. We could hear the television from the camper across the street. The park is 75% permanent residents, however it is clean and tidy. We were offended by the "requirement" of a $35.00 fee each for a background check. We were uncomfortable as to what this might mean. The young man in the office could use some training on his language. When in the office with additional workers, he is quiet, calm and professional. When alone, his is swearing and complaining about this job being to stressful for a person his age. We would return to this park if visiting Portland again. - Eureka12

All in all, a nice facility, across the street from the Portland Yacht Club. Several good restaurants nearby. Paved streets, and pads. The sites are tight, but fairly easy to get into and out of. A paved bike path along the Columbia River and the airport starts about a mile away. WiFi is weak. Cable is analog. Pictures on local channels are better with an antenna. - ta96silver

We stayed for a week and got the weekly discount and a Good Sam discount. We stayed here 2 years ago and have returned because we liked it. As others have said, it is well maintained, clean and the sites are fairly level with good hook-ups. Yes, the wi-fi is almost non-existent but the cable TV is good. And, yes, the flight path for the near-by airport is right over head.
It is really not a campground but more a place where you live for a night or a week or a month or whatever. We find the location of this park good: it is close to Vancouver, WA if you want to visit the National Historic Site, it is within driving distance to the Columbia Gorge and all its attractions, it is only 2 miles from the Yellow Line Max if you want to get into Portland. We like to hike and an find ample trails around here. We would definitely stay here again when we are in the Portland area. - swike

Park is a mixture of long-term residents and short-term visitors. Kids enjoyed the heated pool and laundry was clean with multiple machines. Sites are gravel and paved with grass in between. Reasonably sized for a commercial campground. Landscaping was well taken care of. One benefit is that this is walkable distance to a shopping center with Target and several other chains, but unfortunately not a big grocery store. A bit noisy, like all urban campground, but if you are visiting the city, a good place to stay at a reasonable rate. Got 3 bars of Verizon cell and data service. - judy_online

Stayed one night. Has fast wifi with wifi ranger. Clean, easy access.
Lot spacing is nearby with sunny/open exposure. Site surface is asphalt, featuring a picnic table. - GlennT2000

On the take-off and landing path for the Portland Airport - noisy. Cable does not work unless you can adapt your tv to their comcast converter box and use the comcast remote. Wi-Fi is worthless - 100 feet away from the 'office' the signal is weak and intermittent - plus a lot of signing in must be done. Office staff are from Germany before the War and very defensive. Spaces are average/tight - only a few (8) are pull throughs. Price is about right for what you get - close in to Portland and the metro station. The actual Good Sam rate is $31.50. There is a pool and workout room. No camp fires. You step off your rig into grass/mud.
No pad. - Livermorered

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

Rate reflects a premium back-in site (#127) with electric ($0.12/kwh) for 30 days, so cost is very fair. This park is clean with paved interior roads and paved sites. The negatives include terrible WiFi (none at the site) and a stand up only room for LAN. Wifi is in clubhouse but it was a long walk each day. In addition, the service counter help was not very effective with respect to being nice to customers. One got the opinion they didn't care if you were there or not plus they did not allow USPS mail to be delivered). Fix these issues and park could be a 9 or 10. The $200.00 deposit for 30 day stay was excessive compared to most parks and was only given back in check form (not credit card) on last day of stay. Very strict but it's their rules so that's ok. My choice is to decide not to return. - DIXIEDUALLY2013

Facilities were very clean and so was the entire park. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Park was very quiet. (Even on the 4th of July!) Campers all followed rules re: dogs. The location is great. It is close to everything; highway, shopping, Camping World, restaurants & Oh did I say shopping? The only negative was the "unhook" toad process; it was cumbersome. Had to drive around the Office building to find a flat space to unhook toad, park the toad. Then back into my RV space which was about 100 yards from where I had to park the toad (at the office). Then, walk down the hill to get the toad and move it to the site. Doing this solo...I'm happy I'm in good shape and could do it. Aside from that, it was a great 10 day stay. Again, the Staff and personnel at the Park were really fabulous! I'd stay here again. - DebC_RVer

Beautiful grounds, clean, manicured landscaping with nice shrubs and lots of trees. Sites are level and wide - our site (88) was extra wide as we were next to the perimeter road. Quieter than most parks even though it was July 4th weekend. Cable TV worked well - no box needed at upper (newer?) sites. No open flames allowed - Bbq with charcoal or propane only, no campfires. Laundry room was large and very nice. Machines take coins or debit/credit cards. They even offer a separate laundry room for dog blankets, etc. We chose to unhook, but didn't have to. We would stay here again. - phann

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
Jun 2012 - $30.00
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

This park is extremely well kept and a good location for visiting Portland. The sites are a little tight....the lamp post doesn't help.... with cars being parked next to the rig, which is close to many slides. But we got it to work. We were parked across from the dog walk area and that was convenient for us. Verizon cell and air card worked well, as did all the utilities. We were able to get satellite from our space. Pads are paved, as well as the street so it stays nice and clean. The staff in the office was very friendly. We have stayed here before and will stay again. - Danni

The sites at this park are tight. They gave us Site 70 which just fit the length of our 45 ft coach, except we could not open the door because of an untrimmed tree. The rudest manager I have met in years informed me that they were busy and there was nothing he would do to rectify the problem. Eventually he did move us to Site 71 which does have a trimmed tree. Concrete pad is just wide enough for your wheels. Towed vehicle must be parked beside your rig and with slides it is difficult to get the driver side door open. Sites are so tight for larger rigs that trucks are sticking out in the street. It is very busy and I recommend reservations. Park is clean & well located. Our site was mostly dirt; no grass. - Freedom Bus

Great staff, they have activities nearly every day. Water Aerobics, line dancing, & Karoke and more! I have really enjoyed my stay. The personnel in the office are efficient and friendly, they get you in and out quickly so you can get hooked up. All sites are pretty flat so not a lot of leveling issues. Unhooking of toad is easy due to the relatively flat and straight roads. People (campers) mind the rules of quiet time, doggy rules and pool rules. There is no skate boarding, hover boarding or that type of activity allowed due to the vehicular traffic (safety concerns); bicycles are ok. Some campers are placed right next to the train tracks which is pretty noisy, but if you stay a while, you don't even hear it. Sounds like the ocean. (Good news, no train horns, :D ). The RV park area is very large and very well maintained. I have stayed here numerous times and it is my favorite park in the area. Call far in advance to get your reservations. - DebC_RVer

A bit on the dodgy side but functional enough to stay overnight while we visited Portland. Sites are fairly close but level. I had to go to the rec room to use the WiFi. Dogs are allowed but not really welcome. Not sure if we',d stay here again. Staff were nice enough. - Thedogsma

The lady at the front desk went to a lot of effort to find us (the last) spot in the campground. We did not have reservations and were lucky we found this place by accident. The park is full with the "No Vacancy" sign at the office, not on the street. The Wi-Fi works fine though in some places we were told it doesn't work and you have to come up to the clubhouse, the "hot spot". We were on our way to Westport, and unsure of a place there so we called and found a spot in town. - Ted Morgen

Sites were extremely close together. Just stayed one night. Bathrooms were clean, safe. Individual shower rooms with separate door from bathroom area. Extremely limited areas to walk dogs - very little grass. - User3261
