The streets are extremely narrow as are the sites making it very difficult for larger rigs to maneuver. The site was level and the park was clean. The main problem is the trains which run all night long. There are constant train whistles during the night as the tracks are very close by. We did not use the restrooms so cannot comment on that. The WiFi was OK. We camped at Sandy Riverfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Arrived on a Sunday & could not reach office personal. Needed to use laundry & restrooms but could not. Off hour accommodations were tacky. Paying the bill & leaving early was a problem. Office opened at 11am. Facilities seemed nice but crowded. Access to management poor. Possible bad timing for all. Stayed over night. We camped at Sandy Riverfront RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Like the other reviews have noted this park is clean and well organized. I didn't use the wifi because the park was full and my Verizon signal was good enough to stream video/movies. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, giving us several good pointers about the area. It is a good hub for Portland, the Columbia River Gorge and the town of Troutdale is a very easy walk. We will be here for five nights. Highway noise is present but really not an issue but what is is the nearby trains. The engines are quiet but they constantly blow their horns at the crossings and when going over the bridge and they sound like they are right in the park with you. When trying to sleep it's a problem, like three trains overnight starting around 2AM and loudly sounding horns. I think we have the best site in the park, #181. Shady most of the day. We camped at Sandy Riverfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed for one night and only used the electrical which was good. I have to ditto the other raters regarding cleanliness of the park. An issue for overnighters is length of the site which, most cases, won't allow you to remain hooked up. The park was at capacity and I believe many are long term and/or permanent residents. People leaving for work in the morning makes it difficult to sleep as does the trains which are apparently near the park, and of course, run when everyone is trying to sleep. Everyone I met were very friendly. One positive was WIFI which was very good except during the evening when everyone in the park is online.

One thing that you should be aware of is getting to the park off of I-84. Your GPS will probably tell you to use exit 18 which is no doubt the shortest route but you have to cross an old bridge across the Sandy River taking you to the park entrance. The right turn onto the bridge is sharp and somewhat blind as to traffic approaching from the opposite direction on the bridge. Also the width of most RV's requires you to use the entire width of the bridge. Use either Exit 17 or Exit 16 which makes the route easy. You'll go thru the little town of Troutdale which is very nice. Be sure and keep an eye out for the entrance to the park because if you miss it you will end up going over the aforementioned old bridge. We camped at Sandy Riverfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Extremely nice park. Lots of permanent residents but everything is beautifully kept. Paved roads, level concrete pads, beautiful grassy strips between sites. East to get in and out with big rigs. Utilities worked well, good wifi. We couldn't make the cable work with our TV but it wasn't necessary because antenna-TV worked so well. Our hot water went out so we had to use their showers which were excellent, clean with plenty of water and heat lamps in every shower stall. Convenient to everything in the area. Explicit instructions about not hanging over the ends of the space were hard to comply with when parking a crewcab dually. There's nothing they can do to fix it without going to a lot of expense and most people don't have super-long trucks. Would have rated it a 10 if the spaces between sites had been wider and the tow vehicle parking situation had been easier. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Sandy Riverfront RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Had to arrive a day late due to mechanical problems and they were very understanding about it. Interior roads are very easy to navigate. Our site was paved and level. Wi-Fi was good. Close to downtown Troutdale. We camped at Sandy Riverfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park, though little privacy between sites. Spaces are paved and level. Cable TV requires a converter box from the office. Internet provided by TengoInternet, so it's spotty at best. Facilities were OK, but starting to show their age. Very little freeway noise, but passing freight trains at night were noticeable. Rate was for a 5-day stay. Good hub for seeing Portland and Columbia River area. We camped at Sandy Riverfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very nice park, paved streets and all sites were level as well as paved. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Stayed in a pull-through site which was easy to get in and out of, with dedicated space to park our truck. The town of Troutdale is a nice little town and easy to walk to from campground. Cable TV was good and the Wi-Fi was OK. Definitely would stay here again when traveling in this area. We stayed here for 5 nights as we visited many sites in this area. We camped at Sandy Riverfront RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park on Sandy River. Lots of long term people here, so they are off to work much of the time. The have TV but give you a comcast box that you need to connect to your TV. So for us with two TVs, that was a hassle, plus one is hard to access. Very friendly people and the river was very nice, wade in but rather cool. The dog did not mind at all. Lots of blackberries to pick. Troutdale was a fun town to visit and eat in. We camped at Sandy Riverfront RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is very nice, clean with spacious bathrooms and showers, WiFi sucked until 10 pm, good size level sites, and proximity to Historic Columbia River highway and the falls is great. No cable to speak off, must ask the front desk for a cable box and remote, I got things all hooked up and then tried to get the cable remote to connect to my Furrion TV as there was no code, so I tried the cable company's alternate way to getting the remote to work and after 10 minutes was unable to make it work. We did get the major channels with the antenna. If it wasn't for lack of WiFi we would definitely stay again. I know that sounds funny, but we have been on the road for 6 weeks and WiFi becomes the fourth utility. It's difficult without WiFi. There are a lot of motorhomes/trailers that are kept at the park year-round. Staff told me that there is a waiting list of 76 people trying to get into one of those spots. Normally this is something that would turn me off, but all the motorhomes/trailers are newer, their sites are picked up and well maintained. It's a really nice park. We camped at Sandy Riverfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Many people (young) were swimming in the Columbia River near the park, You could walk to town. Town and area is very clean. Great sightseeing at Vista House area. This is where you can view the 400 foot falls, etc. One area we drove to was Larch Mountain and after a 1/2 mile hike you can view 5 mountains. Very beautiful and pretty private. We drove to Pacific Ocean to follow Lewis and Clark Trail.

I really like being able to choose between backing up to either the Sandy River or Beaver Creek, or a pull-through in the middle of the park for more open and easy access. The sites are long and not crammed together, the park kept clean and the only negative comment I heard was that the restrooms being on one end of the park is too far from the sites on the other end. I use my own facilities, so this was not an issue for me. Perfect location for this area, including easy access to the Columbia River Gorge and Portland.

We stayed overnight on our way down south. It's a good place for one night as there are many seasonals in this park. When you come off I-84 you'll cross a one lane bridge over the river, the park is immediately on your right. Signage is facing the other way. Staff is very friendly. Good park to go visit the Gorge, which is a must. We camped at Sandy Riverfront RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
