The rate above includes an $8 reservation fee. We were only able to stay one night while passing through, but the park was quite nice with views of the nearby hills and river. Our loop (F) had large sites (many can easily fit big rigs) and was mostly wooded. Sites have picnic tables and fire rings, and there were many campfires going on. No WiFi or AT&T but Verizon worked well. One leg of our 50 amp hookup didn't work so we had to plug into the 30 amp terminal instead. The Rogue River Greenway is a paved trail that goes through the park and was a great place for a long dog walk. The biggest drawback is the noise from I-5, which was literally just a couple hundred feet away. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There were many ticks in the grass and our dogs brought quite a few back with them into the RV before we started doing dog (and human) inspections outside before coming in.

This is a convenient stop along I-5 and close to some interesting attractions like the Rogue River corridor and the quaint historic town of Jacksonville. The campground is long and narrow and squeezed in between the highway and the Rogue River. It can be a little noisy with the highway so close by. We've stayed here several times and find the F loop to be the most quiet. There is a nice trail along the river that is easily accessed from the campground. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Do take time to visit Jacksonville if you like historic towns.

This is a beautiful small state park with a paved bike trail that connects to provide over 30 miles of riding through the beautiful Rogue Valley alongside the river. Previous reviews are correct in that I-5 is literally across the street. There are also train tracks on the other side of I-5, and even though we did hear the train occasionally, we never heard horns blow. Our HD antenna did not pick up any channels, which surprised me because we've been in way more remote areas and picked up channels. Our AT&T cell service worked fine and we were able to use our hotspot and stream Netflix. A/B loop has a small laundry room for $1.25 washer, .50 dryer. We did not use the bathrooms/showers as there were thousands of earwigs having a family reunion in there. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed five days. Pleasant, quite busy. The ticks were particularly bad, due to a mild winter, and my dog was covered with them. This was possibly from the trails which we walked several times a day. The sewer drains are a little touchy and can back up if you open the valve all the way. Good Verizon signal. Nice park and I will likely return. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Walmart Supercenter in Grants Pass is just up the road.

We have stayed here a number of times. It is right off I-5, making it an easy stopover. $24 for full hookups in a pretty state park is about as good as it get. We got lazy and took one of the first sites we came to, so it is close enough to the freeway to have quite a bit of road noise when we are outside. There are sites further in the park that are much quieter. Some parts of the campground are closed for the winter, but there are still plenty of sites available, even on Saturday afternoon. The wash house in the loop we were in (the B Loop) had a small laundry (two washers, four driers, and a change machine) and clean showers (free) and restrooms. The men's room even had paper towels. Good water pressure, but the 50 amp power drops as low as 109 VAC under a 30-35 amp load on one leg. The sewer hookups are excellent--downhill and with good threads (not all sites have sewer hookups). Both pull-through and back-in sites. The pull-throughs are big enough for any rig, as are many of the back-ins. Our rooftop dish had a clear shot at the Dish Network satellites, but that wouldn't be the case at many sites in this loop. It would be easy to put a portable dish in a good location anywhere in the park. In other seasons, this is a great place for picking blackberries. No recycling in the park. The camp host told me that the company that collects the trash doesn't do recycling. There are 32-gallon trash containers every few sites, and the camp hosts empty them daily. A great park. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Motorhome.

We selected a location in Loop F and were very pleased. It was a very large, paved site with electric and water. No sewer hookups in the F Loop, but they have a dump station. We were able to get satellite service as well. No issue with Hwy 5 noise where we parked. Nice bike path running through and beyond the park. Hiking path along the river. The park is located about half way between Grants Pass and Medford. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Motorhome.

Always a favorite stop in Oregon. Clean and spacious park with paved roads. No WiFi or TV but good water, power and sewer. Only gripes were dump station broken down so our friends could not dump, and park ranger would not let them use a full hookup site even though they paid to stay there and should have been allowed to dump. Will definitely stay here again though. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Valley of the Rogue State Park is situated along the Rogue River just south of the town of Rogue River, Oregon. It has three main campsite sections, two that have full hook-ups, and the third that has electrical and water only. There is a dump station. The park has a well paved bike/walking path that parallels the Rogue River. Dogs are allowed on 6' leashes and there is good ranger presence along with camp hosts in every section. The showers are clean and there are laundry facilities also. Valley of the Rogue is a gem. There can be some highway noise, depending on which site you are in, but you soon discover you aren't sure if it's the highway or the River you hear. Fishing is good too ! Bass and trout are seen on the end of many a fisherman's pole ! We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is my one of my favorite campgrounds! The sites are paved, level, and well spaced. The staff and hosts are very friendly. The restrooms were clean; so were the laundry facilities. We absolutely love this park and stay whenever we can! That said, be careful walking the trails by the river. Our two small dogs picked up a lot of ticks walking in the tall grass by the river (I should have known better!). The rangers said they've been pretty bad this year. To be clear, the ticks are NOT in the campground part of the park and had the timing worked out, we would have stayed at the park on our return trip (CA to WA and back). This is an outstanding park and we cannot wait to visit again. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wonderful RV park. Nice long pull-through sites. You can stay connected to your dingy if you want. Great separation from other sites. Beautifully maintained. We always stay here when we can. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Motorhome.

We were very fortunate that our campsite was close to the river (B-24) and the roar of the water drowned out the roar of the Interstate. There had been flooding in the area earlier and the trails needed grooming, but we enjoyed them. We were able to hook up with others for a paddling trip on the Rogue River. In this CG a lot would depend on where you are located. We had no noise issues and would have enjoyed staying longer. I believe the rate is $24 per night but we only paid $12 as it was State Parks Day and we got one night free. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A very nice, peaceful and convenient state park next to I-5. There are plenty of trails, an especially nice one next to the river, good for dog walking. Pull-throughs are available. There are posted signs warning of ticks, all for a good reason; they seemed to be especially prevalent in the wooded areas by the river in the spring. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Motorhome.

Don't bother. Beautiful area, but right under the interstate with a rest area beside it. Terrible doesn't even begin to describe. What was Oregon thinking? We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Motorhome.

The rate reflects a "Discovery" (off season) rate. This is one of the harder campground reviews that I have done, because the rating depends so much on what you are looking for. First of all, it is very convenient to Interstate 5, so if you are traveling I-5 and want a place to stop for the night this place is for you. That, however, is its negative, the continual noise from I-5. We were there when it was cooler and wet, so we kept the windows closed, so it was not too bad when we were inside. However, once you step outside, you will know that you are interstate close. If you can tolerate the noise, the rest of the park is good. It is along the Rogue River, but the river is not really a major feature of the park since it is hidden in the bushes. In some sites you can somewhat hear it over the roar of the Interstate. There are some full hookup sites and the sites are spacious, however without a lot of privacy. There is a very nice 4 mile bike path that goes through the park. The hosts are nice and the park is well maintained. So, for a night or two, this park will work. However, for use, it is definitely not a destination park because of the proximity to the Interstate and the resulting noise. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Motorhome.

Among the positives are very spacious sites, clean facilities, mature shade trees and the beautiful Rogue River. The negatives are that river access is very limited by brush and the campground is adjacent to the rest area, which gave me a less "secure" feeling than I typically experience from camping only facilities. We stayed a week and will stay here again. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Travel Trailer.
