The park is graveled but the site we stayed in was level and had a little shade. Wifi was charged for so we did not use. VZ cell service worked great. No cable TV, but all other utilities worked fine. It was quiet at night although trains run along the west side of town about every 20 minutes. They never blow their horns so it didn't bother us. They don't take reservations, you pick your spot and use the envelope system at the office to pay. We stayed in a pull through site and stayed hooked up to a 37' travel trailer. They have both 30 & 50 amp power. We stayed one night and would stay there again. We camped at Rufus RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a serviceable campground, pretty much DIY. You put money in an envelope and choose your own site. If you want WiFi (free), you call the park host and he comes down to the office and gives you WiFi passwords for as many devices as you'd like to use. WiFi works well. The sites are fairly level, have full hookups, and some have some shade. The picnic tables are good. The views are quite nice--you can see the river and the surrounding hills, and it is quite pretty. Nice rather small trees. Grass at all the sites. This is a place where overnighters come, and there are also temporary people, and up the hill are people who live there. No complaints at all. The overnight fee is fair. The showers/restroom is okay. The showers are not very private. Cleanliness is so-so. This is a place where the restrooms are open for showers at $3, and there are locks on the TP dispensers. You can figure it out. No complaints here. I'd stay here again for an overnight or even for a few days. Peaceful overall. We camped at Rufus RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nightly rate reflects weekly discount, $150 for a week. Basic, no frills, park. Quiet place. No loose dogs running around during my stay. Mgr was friendly enough. He prefers you just drop your money in the box at the office and pick a site, but he picked up the phone each time (3) I called. RV park options are limited in this area. Pull thru site was long enough for my 41' coach and longbed dually to fit. Good water pressure. No cable and zero antenna tv stations. Pretty good wi-fi for streaming. Laundry is $1.50 wash and $1.50 dry. No fenced-in dog area. Lots of permanent residents, but not a lot of traffic coming and going in the park, which is a good thing. I wouldn't put in in my schedule to stay here again, but if I was in the area and needed a place to stay, this would be o.k. We camped at Rufus RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Bulldog Diner by the Sinclair gas station has good burgers. Big Texan is a greasy spoon and not that good. Market/deli across from Big Texan has minimal supplies. Closest hardware store is in Wasco, about 8 miles away. McDonalds is down the road at Exit 104. Stonehenge War Memorial (across the river) is worth a visit.

First, this park accepts cash only. We stayed one night. We called ahead and was told that somebody would be there to check us in but when we arrived, the office was locked. There are signs telling you to pick a site and place your cash payment in an envelope and drop in the payment box outside the office. We drove around and found a pull-through that barely fit our 40' motorhome and tow. Most of the sites are back-ins with a row of about 10 pull-throughs. The sewer is way in the back so we didn't hook it up. We did hook up the water and electric. Water pressure was pretty good. The park itself is rundown, filled with permanent and longterm residents. On the night we stayed, we were the only transients there. Wi-Fi signal was good. No cable and no off-leash dog park. There were dogs running loose in the park. They were friendly and wanted to play with our dogs (with the exception of one enormous rottweiler) but if there was a rule about off leash dogs, it wasn't being enforced. We never saw the park owner or managers although they were mentioned in the website as living in the park. By the way, the park in reality doesn't look anything like the park you see in their website. The $30 a night rate is overpriced for this place but there are very few options in the area particularly if you're exhausted from driving all day and just need a place to rest. This place was good enough for one night but we won't be staying here again. We camped at Rufus RV Park in a Motorhome.

We didn't even stay here. We drove through and saw how run down it was and decided it wasn't worth $30 a night. We just went and parked in the empty lot at the bottom of the road. We camped at Rufus RV Park in a Motorhome.

It may lack something in ambiance but it meets a need in a stretch of highway with few alternatives (boondocking, COE usually full). Level sites long enough to leave the toad hooked up, 50 amp power, sewer (at rear of site), good water far as I could tell. Friendly staff although it doesn't seem there is usually anyone in the office. I think they try and catch up with you on entry. Bathroom somewhat industrial but clean. Very slow Verizon extended network data connection, but it was good enough for what I needed, so I didn't pop for the WiFi. We camped at Rufus RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here overnight. The manager was very friendly. The campground does not accept credit cards or debit cards, cash only. The facilities were clean. We camped at Rufus RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

While I only intended to stay overnight, it was so quiet that I opted to stay a second day. The restrooms and showers were clean, with plenty of hot water for my shower. The sunsets were magnificent and more than made up for the lack of some other amenities. I had 50 amp service, and a large lawn at my site. The manager was friendly, but appeared overworked. Laundry was clean and had extended hours. I would definitely stay here again when traveling I-84. We camped at Rufus RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park was not difficult to find or approach. It is not the one next to I-84, but just up the hill two blocks and further from road noise. The manager was working on the grounds when we arrived and he promptly met us on his golf cart. He led us to our site which was level, w/FHU and without difficulty we were connected in little time. As it was a warm afternoon in the Columbia Gorge, we ran the air for a few hours. Power was unremarkable at our site. The park occupants were a mix of travelers and monthly folks. The place was clean with no clutter. There are few shady sites. The interior roads are gravel, but in good condition. The sites are roomy with mowed lawn between sites. We did not use the park Wi-Fi, restrooms or showers. This park fully met our need for a good overnight stop and we would use it again. We camped at Rufus RV Park in a Motorhome.

Hard park to rate, older, a little neglected, but owner is very friendly. His business is primarily fisherman, hunters and folks who work in the area for the energy companies. This is a great park to use as a base camp for fishing, hunting or working, but don't think I would bring a family here. Electrical, water and sewer are in good working order, restrooms are kept clean and well stocked. We camped at Rufus RV Park in a Motorhome.

We were looking for a site for the night and pulled into this park. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The sites are narrow. We were barely able to put out our slide. The neighbors were only 3 feet away from the slide, if that. Even though there was 6 sites for overnight, only 3 of them are usable by rigs longer than 30 feet. And that is questionable. The site we were in was really too short for us. Our rig is a 30 foot Class A motor home and Jeep toad. The sites are gravel and fairly level though. WI-Fi is an extra charge. I did not get it. Although the manager was out mowing, he was mowing mainly weeds, very little grass in the park. We may or may not stay here again. We camped at Rufus RV Park in a Motorhome.

We blew in here with a 30 knot tail wind in July. We had called ahead to make sure of our reservation. The host met us at the office. There is a local sign that says church on the street corner. The sign looks like a road name sign right in front of the real street sign for the street you are looking for. Drove by the first time. The sites are tight for our 36' fifth wheel. All gravel roads with some grass around the sites. The site was level, no blocks required. The wind howled the whole time we were here. The stabilizers made it so we were rocked to sleep that night. This is a plain Jane park with mostly semi-permanent RV's. Mostly workers in the area. Did I mention the wind? It was a convenient stop after a days drive. We would use it as an overnight rest again.

Gravel park with little bits of lawn at most or all sites. Clean park with no amenities. Wi-Fi didn't work; laptop air card worked intermittently. Laundry room was spotless but was very busy, apparently because non-RVers from town also use it. Extremely windy town: too windy to enjoy being outdoors. It is OK for a one-nighter. There are other RV parks in Biggs nearby. Easy after-hours check-in. We camped at Rufus RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Of 5 "overnight" pull throughs (30A only) only one had a functioning water spigot, and the plug was broken on that site. Do yourself a favor and keep rolling. Nice managers, it is a shame they don't do repairs or can't find a decent park to manage. We camped at Rufus RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed for several months. The hosts were friendly and kept the laundry, restrooms, and grounds neat and tidy. The park is quiet and the sunset views were magnificent. We camped at Rufus RV Park in a Motorhome.
