We chose this campground because of its proximity to the city center. It is only about 8 miles from downtown. It is only 15 minutes if the road is clear. We park our car one mile away from the campground at Delta Park (for free) and rode the tram to the city center. Only 20 minutes. A day ticket costs $5. The campground itself is OK except for the planes that start flying over at 6 AM, sometimes into the night, permitting no restful sleep. The staff was very rude when we arrived. No Hello, no Welcome, no personal word. Because it is close to the city center, we would come back. But for a maximum of 2 or 3 days. We cannot tolerate the noise longer than that. We camped at Jantzen Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

It was hard to know about this park by looking at the reviews, so we decided to take a chance. This is a nice RV park. Nice sites, full hookups, trees, and great location for activities in Portland. If noise doesn't bother you, then this is the place for you! It is located in the flight pattern for Portland airport and military operations which fly from 6 AM to 11:30 PM. There is a railroad track very close by that runs day and night, using the horn the entire way! The noise isn't constant, but when they come by, it is very loud. There are not a lot of options close to the city, so for that reason it worked. Next time I will park further out of town and drive in. We camped at Jantzen Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

We loved this place. Nice grassy sites with lots of trees and gardens. Clean restrooms and laundry. It's in good location with full access to shops, and it offers a lot by way of pleasant walking and cycling. They also offer long stay rates starting at a week. There is a gym and pools which were again, very well maintained. Noise is the only issue with commercial and military aircraft flying over but it wasn't too bad. We had a space just off the road and expected it to be noisy but funnily enough we didn't notice that too much either. The staff were great and very helpful.

I'm in agreement with some of the other posts, the pull thru site was very narrow and our Wi-Fi reception was poor. If you absolutely need to be in Portland there aren't' many choices, but this park has many poor qualities. I read on one post about road noise, but that was drowned out by trains, tugboats, military jets and general aviation jet traffic from the airport. A lot of long term tenants took up many of the nicer sites, but overall the people we met were very nice. I would not stay here again. We camped at Jantzen Beach RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a very noisy park. The flight path for take off and landing from Portland airport is directly overhead. Military jets took off and flew directly overhead multiple times during our 2 day stay. There is a railroad switching yard close by and trains are constantly banging day and night. In addition the trains blow their horns day and night. We did not feel comfortable keeping our chairs, tables etc. outdoors when we were not there. We will not stay here again. We camped at Jantzen Beach RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is the second trashiest site I've been to, and I mean that there is trash all over. The front office smells like cigarette smoke, the manager is extremely rude (other review sites concur strongly), the bathrooms are filthy, and we actually got in trouble for letting our daughter play outside. So we took her to the playground area and got in trouble for that, too, since it's for residents of the mobile home area. Same for the pool. For mobile home residents only. Some of the mobile homes have water views, but the rest don't. I'm not holding the barge horns or air traffic against the management, but beware that it's loud because of these things. Maybe you'll be like me and find these sounds comforting. If you don't, then you won't get much sleep. During our 2-month stay, we had to move spots every week to ten days to open up better spots for people coming in for a few days. At one point, the manager overbooked, so we had to go park our RV on the street for a night. This happens a lot, and there are often rigs parked on the street because their reserved spots were taken by someone else. At the end of our stay we were assigned to a spot about 25' long for a 36' long rig with so little turn area that driving our truck through the spot was tricky. That's when we left. One of the maintenance guys told us that spot is usually used as spare parking because it's not in a location that a rig can be driven through. If you have a problem, don't expect help. In a spot next to us a bunch of young adult men got drunk and partied like it was a frat house. When one of them said some raunchy stuff to my kindergartener and propositioned me, I called for help and was told to deal with it myself by staying inside, and they were only there a couple days. The manager's laxity is the sort of thing you expect to see in a movie about bad managers. The pluses are the proximity to shopping, and that is all. We camped at Jantzen Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is not as it claims. They are on the river, but the only spots by the river are permanent spots. It is noisy! Planes, trains, boats, cars etc. These old women are in the pool making a ton of noise rain or shine, no matter the temperature. This is not country living in the city, this is city living! It is not safe at all. Crazy drivers out on the road passing by, one crashed into a transformer, homeless people frequently wander through here it is scary. I say think twice We camped at Jantzen Beach RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park was nicely maintained and clean, restroom were stocked, and clean. We had interaction with 2 staff members, one was very friendly, the other acted as tho we were bothering her. As others have stated the park is very load due to being located on the Portland Airport flightpath. The majority of people in the park were long-term residents who acted as tho you were in their way. The one next to us stayed up late, partied, drank, slammed car doors until 2 am. I encountered one young couple showering together in the male showers, they acted as tho I was at fault for bothering them. Wi-Fi was very spotty. Due to the behavior of the residents will not stay here again. We camped at Jantzen Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

For an urban park, the location is great for exploring everything from downtown to Multnomah Falls. About 2/3 of the park is filled with permanent residents. Paved roads and paved, level sites are a plus, although the sites are a bit on the narrow side. Water, sewer, and electric hookups are well placed. Wi-Fi was pretty good. Rating gets dinged for the bathrooms & showers which are old, small, and lacking hooks in the shower stalls. Price reflects Good Sam discount. We camped at Jantzen Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is convenient to Portland business district. Nice, clean, well maintained property with mature shade trees. Adjacent to a shopping plaza with Target, Home Depot, Old Navy among others. Easy on and off the interstate in our 43' bus. We will return to this convenient location again. We camped at Jantzen Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here before and have had good experiences, BUT this time was different. We got there and asked for one of the several sites we had stayed in before and was told they weren't available and she put us in one next to them. Well,no-one showed in them for two days. The site she gave us had a tight entrance between a concrete power box on one side and a tree and pole on the other. I checked the tree and watched the box to make sure the toad cleared it,which it did barely, but missed the three inch limb stub on the tree and got the mirror, oops. Got in and hooked up and the power box took several attempts to get 50 amp power and I finally turned on ALL the circuit breakers and Voila, I had power. Tried the internet and that was a no-go uh-uh, no-way anytime. The neighbors all said the same thing and that it's been that way for AT LEAST three months. The office said that they'd check the box, but that didn't work.. Oh and guess who was parked RIGHT UNDER the wi-fi box. Told the office about the tree and there wasn't really any response, except they'd look into it. The guy in the next site said that one trailer had caught it already, two months ago and there had been two MHs that had taken their mirrors off too. The limb is very hard to see as it blends in with the tree. I do like the place, but the management was not very forthcoming and I may stay here again, but in a different site. We camped at Jantzen Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

We were here during fall colors. It is a large-capacity park, but the trees make it beautiful and not seem so crowded. Staff was helpful. We were in Site 958 near the back of the park so the Wi-Fi was marginal. Verizon service was good. Bathrooms were 6 of 10. We were certainly disappointed to have our bikes (which were new, we'd ridden them twice) stolen from our site on the second of our two night stay. Guess we will lock the bikes as we do our generators. The staff was apologetic and a woman from the park "walk patrol" came around to interview us. Sad that there is still so much more work to do to raise some people to a higher level of living with their fellow humans. We camped at Jantzen Beach RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beware that their weekly rate can be had for staying a week, but their monthly rate (even if just staying a single month) requires that you fill out an eight page application that includes providing them with previous years tax returns, etc. We signed up for a month, but ended up paying the weekly rate because we were not willing to provide the kind of info they required. Would have been fine it it listed it on their web site and spelled out their requirements, we just wanted to stay for 30 days and made a reservation based on that rate and their comments on the phone about getting that rate. We ended up having to pay the weekly rate for four weeks, which is much more expensive. It's a fine park...lots of noise from trains, plains, etc, but it is convenient to town and nicely laid out. The local guy who will offer to wash your rig for $35 does an amazing job. Just don't try to stay for 30 days for the rate they quote you. We paid $23/night when they quoted us $12.50/night.

We only stayed here one night but we were impressed with the facilities, maintenance and cleanliness. Staff were friendly and helpful. Only downside was Wi-fFi was intermittent during the evening. Yes, there is some noise. You do hear the odd airplane, train or boat whistle, but it is in the heart of the city. We were able to cycle on nice, well-signed bike paths from the RV Park to the Max (light rail line) and travel quickly into the downtown where there are numerous bike friendly streets and a nice waterfront route. You can buy an all day transit ticket for $5 and the trains have bike hangers on board. We camped at Jantzen Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.
