The park is nice, but it is definitely overpriced. We're used to Passport America and Good Sam discounts and typically get much higher value for what we paid here. They even charge you for the showers. The site was not very level and was quite noisy because of its proximity to the road. There was no cable, but the air reception was good. Unfortunately, we were not able to hike the trails because of heavy rain, so we can't comment with respect to the natural scenery. On the plus side, the staff were very friendly. However, we would not return because of the high price. We camped at Paradise Point State Park in a Travel Trailer.

There is a new casino near this campground, and we are guessing that many of the people staying in the winter were at the casino. The campground was not crowded, and it was quiet. Most of the sites had some tree cover, but we picked one on the edge which did not. It is near (not exactly next to) the freeway (I-5). There is a lot of truck traffic, however the flip side is that this campground is very convenient to use and get back on I-5. There is also a new Shell station (which is quite expensive) in the same stop, so you can save yourself a second stop to get gas. There was certainly not any problems with the campground, but we paid less in Oregon the next night for a last minute reservation, for a nicer campground. Also, the website needs to be updated for WA State Parks. I talked to a Ranger later, and they said that they are only using the online reservation system for yurts and cabins, during the off season. This didn't seem as clear as it might be online. (Perhaps this is the fault of ReserveAmerica and not the parks.) In any case, many of us would gladly stay at a state park over any RV park - and they might get more off season business if it were clearer that this park (and Battle Ground Lake State Park), were open during the off seasons. We camped at Paradise Point State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

This is right next to a new casino, Ilani. We did not go to the casino, but it is right across the freeway from this campground. This is also a convenient place to stop for the night, if you don't want to mess with going through the Portland area until the next day.

The staff is wonderful and very helpful. The camp host and volunteers were friendly and kept everything tidy. There were a few nights that the noise from the engine breaks on the semis was obnoxious, or a few other campers were less than friendly neighbors ,but the park itself was a fun adventure for my family of 5. The other guests were all nice and even helped us back our camper into our spot. Reserve online if possible, it gets busy! We camped at Paradise Point State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We pulled in and it looked woodsy and nice. Not totally full either. Then we noticed some of the other sites that look like the homeless tent city. The bathrooms had several syringes on the floor and were filthy. That night we saw some very scary things: people lurking behind trees, running out and yelling profanity, dogs that are not leashed and roaming, some very unfriendly people. There is a sense of weariness, you are constantly looking over your shoulder and where you walk. There are needles and drug remnants everywhere. Did not see any workers, just a ranger. The noise is so obnoxious from the freeway, you can't hear anything else. A beautiful park that will scare you to death. If you are a thrill seeker, this one is for you. Honestly this place is dangerous and scary: stay away. We camped at Paradise Point State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice large restrooms (individual). Pleasant wooded setting. It is not far from the interstate, but traffic noise is seldom a problem. We camped at Paradise Point State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We arrived late at night and the staff was helpful telling us where our site was located. The site was clean and we easily found a flat spot for the tent for our teenagers. The restrooms were clean and well taken care of. We receive a huge discount as we are a foster family. We camped at Paradise Point State Park in a Tent Trailer.

$35 per night was for a level asphalt pad site with 50 amp electric, water, picnic table, and fire ring (there is a total ban on burning until September 30, 2014—propane is ok). All sites are shaded by huge trees. With the dump station on your left (normal for most RVs), you’ll be pitched several degrees nose down making it hard to completely empty the tanks. This campground is located right next to Interstate 5 so the constant road noise is unavoidable. There is access to a river for swimming/wading. AT&T cell service was three bars LTE. Our Milliencom jetpack was getting four bars of 4G LTE which was great for internet access. We camped at Paradise Point State Park in a Motorhome.

We knew going into it that the park is on I-5. We were in space 19 which was an end site that was nice, but the sound of the jake brakes on the trucks was day and night. Have to say that the dump site was extremely challenging to navigate. We ended up having to back into it due to low hanging tree branches the other way in. The camp host was very nice and the park was clean. We camped at Paradise Point State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Ah: the aroma of pine trees, lots of them! Fresh air! The smell of wood crackling on a campfire. There is just one more thing needed to make this scene complete: the thunderous roar of a jillion vehicles driving north and south on Interstate 5 to take you back to the reality you wanted to escape! Yes, folks, if you want "balance" in your life, this is the place to come! Both the utility (Sites 1-20) and standard (Sites 21-69) camping slots have an asphalt paved pad and can accommodate RVs (but don't count on the asphalt pad being level). Also, both the utility and standard slots have a fire ring and a large picnic table plus plenty of room to pitch a tent next to your RV if you want. Two of the utility sites include use of a Yurt ($49 for the Yurt as of this writing). The only escape from the road noise is to camp in the "primitive" area (spots 70-79). The "primitive" sites have a tent pad, picnic table, and fire ring. All campers for those spots park in one special marked place, and then "hike it in" along a trail with spot 70 being the closest and spot 79 being the farthest down the trail. I noticed that between primitive spots 74 and 75, there was a piece of dead tree trunk with lots of moss growth, and this dead tree trunk was sitting in such a way that it would make a great "fort" for children to play in. At the upper end of the campground, there is an open area with picnic tables and an amphitheater. Also, you can either walk or drive down a paved road to kind of a "hidden valley" with a romantic picnic area next to a river. This picnic area would be the perfect place to propose marriage! That is: if you can make yourself be heard over the roaring thunder of the vehicles traveling over the concrete/steel bridge way up there in the air. If you want some solitude, take the hiking trail along the river in the "hidden valley," and go as far as you can on it. You will find some great secluded spots where you can view the river or go fishing; and the peace and quiet will be occasionally interrupted by the sound of a small airplane flying overhead. Warning: the hiking trail is moderately strenuous. Be sure you have fully functional legs, lungs, and heart. It's worth it for the peace and quiet. There is a propane facility in a gas station located one mile outside the park. The utility sites have water and electric only. The sewer dump for the park is tricky to drive through if you are staying on the lower loop. Good luck if you are over 30 feet! If you are on the upper loop, it's a straight shot in. There are recycling stations next to the garbage cans for the environmentally conscious. Television reception is kind of fuzzy if you don't have satellite. If you have a high definition ready television, you will pick up a few HD channels. Seriously, this would be a great getaway if it weren't for the freeway! We camped at Paradise Point State Park in a Motorhome.
