Interesting park that is very convenient for visiting Portland. We were in the new section that had nice concrete pads with plenty of room for our larger motorhome. There are many permanent residents on this park but they are restricted to newer units and upkeep rules are enforced. Our only issue was the distance to the restrooms and laundry, although one restroom unit was nearby but under construction. Wi-Fi was good most of the time with numerous towers for strong signals. Some local tips: the light rail station is close with adequate parking so one can get downtown or to all parts of the city. Don't even think of driving or taking I-5 before 10 AM. Also, there is a very good (but maybe a little pricey for some) restaurant on the River nearby called Salty's. We had a very good meal while watching a great sunset there. We camped at Columbia River RV in a Motorhome.

Clean well kept park. Park has a newer addition in the back. We stayed in space #155, which had a tricky turn. Very tight getting into it, but managed. We managed better than several guests before us--who had 'taken out' the power box. When reporting to the office that the damage was NOT done by us-- friendly office staff chuckled and said yes--they knew it wasn't us--Previous guest had not negotiated the tight turn (several guests). The sites are all level concrete pads with good hookups. Odd Note: Sewer is situated at the far back of the site--luckily we had a long sewer hook up. It is a relatively quiet park for having an airport near by. Many permanent residents but all sites maintained and tidy. Staff was friendly and helpful. Park has a nice laundry & rec room complete with book lending library (take a book-leave a book). Would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Columbia River RV in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. Courteous, friendly staff and adequate amenities. Nice site with extra slab for tow car or additional patio space. Convenient access to both Portland area and Vancouver WA. Park is near the airport so there is plane noise, but it's not too bad except for the military jets, which don't fly at night. We had long-term renters on both sides of us and they were really friendly and informative about the area. I almost rated the park lower because the sewer hookup was rusted (no threads showing) but I stuck my hookup in there and it sealed up OK, although not the optimal situation, for sure. Overall, we enjoyed our stay here very much. We camped at Columbia River RV in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Concrete sites, with concrete pad for toad with very little grass, but there is tidy, low profile landscaping between sites. Both sites we stayed in (two different visits within two weeks) were somewhat less than level but we manually adjusted levelers to accommodate. This place is busy so be sure to have a reservation during the vacation season. Rest room/shower closest to us was closed for repairs 3 out of the 4 days we were on site. Other one was by the office on the other side of park so we did not use. Did not use laundry either. Great, central location in Portland; was able to easily to visit daughter in NE section as well as enjoy meals at local restaurants and do some grocery shopping as well. Wi-Fi was weak unless you woke up early and got online. Cable channels what you would expect in a big city. Interesting long termers with vegetable/flower gardens. We would stay here again, mostly because of location. We camped at Columbia River RV in a Motorhome.

Sparkling clean and neat. Many full-timers. Only downside is that it is near to the airport and the take-offs begin a little after 6 AM. It was convenient for our needs and the cleanliness, etc, made up for the airplane noise. We camped at Columbia River RV in a Motorhome.

You know for a place close to Portland, you really can't go wrong. Very well maintained, sidewalks, paved, concrete pads, level, never used wifi, or cable. Price reflects either AAA, or Sam's Club. Yes long terms, but so close to city. People where very nice to chat with. Noise from airport really not that bad. Stayed. 2 days, and stay again. We camped at Columbia River RV in a Motorhome.

We were looking for someplace to stay to visit the Portland area, our stay was 3 weeks. We found the park clean and well kept. The sites are maintained and full concrete. Wi-Fi is what I expect for free from the campground. We had no problems during check-in and the staff has been pleasant. The park is convenient to downtown and local attractions, we used ten MAX trains and trolley. There is one thing I do not understand about the rules: bicycle riding is not allowed, I understand some one was injured. The speed limit is 10 MPH, I noticed the permanent residents not abiding the rules. Note that it is in the flight path of the Portland airport; this did not bother us. We enjoyed seeing the military jets take off. There are several good restaurant/bars close by. Things we did not like and would stay away from: No apparent limit on the number of dogs, site 122 has at least 9. Some long term residents are pretty cluttered, e.g., sites 100 and 101. We camped at Columbia River RV in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate reflects a two week stay with Good Sam discount. Very nice park with concrete parking pads and concrete patios. Full hook-up with 50 amp and the Wi-Fi is free but too slow so we went back to our Verizon JetPack since 4G was available. All paved roads with sidewalks. Sites are level and about 25' wide. We were in a pull-through. Although cable was included we used our satellite. What keeps this park from a higher rating is they have a no-refund policy for your required deposit to reserve a site. They also, state that if you don't recycle properly you could be subject to a $50 fine. Their sprinkler system uses well water and that made a mess of our RV. The office said "sorry about that" and charged me the $10 fee to wash my motor home. You are prohibited from having any type of stakes in the ground because of the sprinkler system and underground wiring. We were there the the 4th and couldn't display our flag. We camped at Columbia River RV in a Motorhome.

Rate paid is based on a one week stay. Very clean park. Roads and sites are paved. Older sites have grass between sites, newer sites have rock gardens. There is about 12 feet between sites. Park wifi is just okay. We had excellent 4G Verizon signal. Intermittent noise from nearby Portland Int'l Airport (PDX). Laundry room is quite small for the size of the park. NO picnic tables. We camped at Columbia River RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice campground - quiet, level. They were just completing what looked like a new shower/restroom facility. We especially appreciated their help allowing us to stay extra days, despite being full, when I was unexpectedly admitted to the hospital. We camped at Columbia River RV in a Fifth Wheel.

This place is okay and reasonably maintained. You have to like to stay with a lot of permanent residents. We have stayed here for long periods over the years and have always come back. The only real complaint we have (and to us it is a big one) is when we made reservations the lady on the phone was somewhat short with us. Also, when we checked in we waited for a lady ahead of us and she was asking why she didn't get the monthly rate and the gentleman who helped her stated "Well, I don't have to explain that to you but..." We felt this was very rude. With all the parks to pick from I think we'll look around next time. Of course, they are full so our opinion probably isn't that important. We camped at Columbia River RV in a Motorhome.

For this type of campground it is very nice. It is in the city and the sites are very close together and tight. But it was clean and very well kept. Office personal was friendly and helpful and the mostly permanent residents were friendly. If you stay here try to get into the old sections. The new section has big rocks instead of grass and it hard to walk on. It is convenient to visit the stuff in and around the city. Rate reflects Good Sam. We would stay here again.

This park is mostly semi permanent/permanent residents. Only a few spaces seem to be for transients. Paved interior roads, concrete sites, well-equipped laundry. The park is situated not far from the outbound runway of Portland Airport and the jet noise goes on from 6:00 am to 12 midnight. Park is okay for a night stopover but the noise gets old quickly. We camped at Columbia River RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Paved sites and roads. Hookups OK. Site size is somewhat close with grass in between. That's the good. A very loud International Airport next to the park, no view of the river, large park with 1 shower house, long walk to everything, not close to anything. Would not return. We camped at Columbia River RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice campground. Level, well-maintained, good hook-ups, grass between sites, easy to get around and we had no trouble hooking up in our site and taking off from there. Close to the city, to Vancouver for the National Historic Site and close to the Gorge for travel. This is not a resort park nor is it a park with lots of activities. Most of the people here are monthlies so a reservation is advised. Our cost is for a week. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Columbia River RV in a Motorhome.
