14 RV Parks near Stevenson, Washington
Oct 2016 - $25.00
Not a lot has changed from previous reviews. An older park, some RVs are obviously long term (not well kept around them) while others are well kept. The short term sites all seem to be pull through w/ water and electric only. I think the sites are very narrow but do have wild shrubs, trees, etc separating the sites for privacy; however, we had trouble putting slide out without hitting a tree and it is very difficult to put chairs, grill , etc out. However, it had been raining when we arrived and we had lots of water on our site. The roads have recent new gravel, but we joked that our door mat might float away. Managers now seem to have regular hours and were friendly and helpful. - BandD

This is more a trailer park than RV park. Sewer is for long term, monthly, only. There is never anyone in the office. Fill out the envelope and drop it in the slot. I was told when I called that the shower was free, it is not. I was also told you could get satellite reception from a rooftop mount dish, also not true. The stream is a rockbed, bone dry. Sites are not being maintained. Many firepits have beer cans and trash in them. Rule says dogs must be leashed, dogs are loose in park. 5mph speed limit is not enforced. Lots of dust. We enjoy trains, but this is ridiculous. It feels like the freight trains are coming right through the living room. - paxton

This is a great place stay! Nice area with great views and lots of activities nearby. The atmosphere is pretty casual. The sites are well spread out and there are trees and grass throughout. It is a pretty large place and there is a section for more permanent spaces, but don't let that dissuade you. I believe it is first come first served and you pay by dropping in a slot box. We found two great spots that backed up to the creek and had a great time with the kids. The train goes by every few hours and it is close enough to be pretty loud but not close enough to rattle the dishes. Most of the sites have power and water but no sewer. There is a dump station near the exit. Oh, and we got pretty good cell reception there. And there is a a nice park area across the highway with a store/gas station. - BoJyJoCha

We stayed here for about three weeks. After the first night we decided to find a different campground due to the road and railroad noise which is pretty bad. BUT, we decided to stay and are so glad we did. We adjusted to the noise quickly.
This campground is a jewel. It's small and terraced and directly above the Columbia River. I so enjoyed our daily dog walks down to the river and back up again. There are coves with picnic tables and benches. There are places to swim (at your own risk) in the river. Pets are welcomed throughout the campground and down by the river.
The grounds are kept up nicely. Hook-ups are well maintained and up to date. Good steady electric and good water pressure. The hosts are wonderful people and very helpful. The laundry is clean. We were in site one nearest the office and laundry and were able to use our satellite with no problems. Good steady electric and good water pressure.
The town of Stevenson is just over a mile away and had a surprisingly well stocked grocery store. Go just another couple of miles and you can cross "The Bridge of the Gods" into Oregon which is perfectly fine to cross with your RV whatever the size. It's a 40 minute drive to Portland via I 84.
The only reason I didn't give this park a 10 is the noise but if you want to be near the river with gorgeous views and don't mind the noise this is the place for you. - RosieandThumper

The campground pictures were misleading. Hookups had to be done by running the line to the front of the motorhome or if we had backed in to the site if could be done as usually, but you would have missed the view of Columbia River.
The train tracks are approximately 50 yards from the camp sites. The trains run on a regular basis day and night. Very noisy and disturbing.
The host people are friendly and helpful. - USMC5811

You are on the banks of the Columbia River, but this sliver of land is wedged between the main highway and the train tracks. Dozens of trains day and night come through: crossing is nearby so lots of whistle blowing. No antenna or satellite reception. Convenient location to Stevenson: had a great brunch at the Skamania Lodge a short distance away. Great view from the Lodge. There are lots of campgrounds around if you know the names of the little towns around. Oregon is across the river and a nice boat ride is available from Cascade of the Locks: a lovely little town across the river. - travelexpert

We came to this park looking for a camping atmosphere with 30amp and H2O connections. Immediately upon arrival, I knew I found a little piece of heaven. The staff made my family and I feel like honored guests, although we arrived unannounced/no reservation. We were given a map of available sites to chose from with no pressure whatsoever. Beautiful, well maintained back-in sites with forested privacy throughout. A most welcome change after abandoning a crowded, truck stop-like park in Cascade Locks. We will return to this park again for sure. - David Heather

Little bit of a climb in the campground getting to some of the spots but very doable. Great spot, great staff, private campsites, tons of shade and very quiet. Manager was super helpful! Great pet area! - The Childs

Stayed 2 nights and enjoyed very much. A bit difficult backing into space but it was level. No sewer hookup but they did have a dump station. A bit difficult finding the resort but got help from owners. GPS not accurate. Checked out bathroom/showers and decided to use trailer instead. Pay showers. Park was in pristine condition with nice dog park not fenced in.
Would stay here again. Very quiet. - mcomeaux

We found this little jewel on the southeast side of Mt. St. Helens about 24 miles north of Carson, Washington. The campsite we had (#25) was perfect right next to the Wind River. We stayed here for four days over a completely full weekend and couldn't ask for a better experience. I have stayed in a lot of National Campgrounds and rarely even bother to rate them, but this place was the cleanest best kept we have ever seen. The pit toilets were always full of paper and hand sanitizer and they even went so far as blowing pine needles off the road. The campsites have a sand tent site as well as a paved back in where we were. Water is by way of an old hand pump well but it tastes very good. There is no phone signals for miles from here.
I rate this an 8 because I could never give a higher rating to a place with no hook-ups. But as far as boon docking, you won't do better than this place. The hosts were very friendly (locals) and knowledgeable about the local area and hiking trails including several of the nearby waterfalls.
The fee is half price if you have the Golden Age pass. - kcjflea

Great Forest Service CG located about 7 miles out of Trout Lake via SR 141 and FR 24 (paved all the way). Sites are generally well separated with dirt/gravel pads. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Water spigots are located throughout the campground. A dump station can be found at the city park in Trout Lake. Campground is generally open from mid May through mid September. CG is close to Goose Lake (about 6 miles) and Forlorn Lakes for those who like fishing. Note that Goose Lake allows electric boat motors and has a boat launch while Forlorn Lakes is muscle power only and no launch site. The campground doesn't experience heavy usage except during the huckleberry season and during the early part of the fishing season. It can, however, be busy during any weekend so reservations for a weekend might be advisable. Peterson Prairie is near the Ice Caves and Natural Bridges. Both were formed when Mount Adams last erupted and are worth checking out. If you decide to explore the Ice Cave, wear warm clothing and adequate foot gear -- it's cold and slippery down there! - Bruce and Sue

Extremely beautiful RV campground located amongst 124' fir trees. All sites were level, paved and large with table and firepits. There were 3 waterfalls located on easy 5 mile RT hike. I can't wait to get back. However, this campground does not accept reservations so it's first come first served and this is a major problem as the campground is located 15 miles up US Forest Road 90 and you won't know until you get there whether there is a site available. During the 3 days I was there, I saw many RVs turning around and heading back down the mountain as all sites were gone. There are no signs at the turnoff indicating the availability of sites and 30 miles RT drive is a long way to go...especially in the dark. Other than that it's a great park. - olygene

Long but somewhat narrow sites. Shrubs/trees between sites afforded privacy. Plenty of room to manuver your vehicle/ RV. Wonderful views of Mt. Adams. Lots to do at park and in the area. Will definitely go back. - CM WA

This is a fantastic park. It is a very woodsy setting with the feeling of privacy between campsites. The view sites are just that--views of the meadows and Mt. Adams. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. This is a destination park rather than an overnight stop. They have a great little 1/2 mile nature walk and a great playground BBQ area. We now call this park our version of a spa. It was really relaxing and very inviting. We plan to be back often. - SAU51

This is a destination campground. The destination being an awsome view of Mt. Adams. The sites are heavily wooded and private. Very friendly check in. Don't expect to use your dish for TV as most sites are canopied with trees. Not much in the town of Trout Lake but plenty of outdoor activities nearby. Several whitewater rafting companies are near by. - cypressdrive

Great location close to only restaurant in town the Cougar Bar and Grill and a little store. Great location to visit famous sites like Mount st. Helens the Ice Caves Yale Lake and more beautiful forested area. - Cherie Scott

Gravel and packed soil sites, slightly uneven. Shady on South and West side of loop. Fire ring and table at site, sites large and mowed grass. RV's mixed with cabin rentals, but proposed no problem, ie., noise, etc. We plan on returning for our family reunion. Restaurant closed during our stay. There are many sights to see, hiking and water activity in the area. No telephone reception, but WiFi excellent. - Old RVer

This is a nice "resort". Has what looked like to be nice clean rustic rooms. We stayed in the campground in a 32' RV. Sites are large enough but close to each other. There is nice gift shop and café, had hamburgers one night and they were very good. We did stop one morning for breakfast, but after looking around and saying is any one here a few times over the loud music playing in the kitchen we left. Also has a very nice pool, and small play ground. Bathrooms could use a lot of work, but useable...on site laundry, but can only be used after they are done later in the day, I did not go in. Free WFI that worked ok, No ATT cell. If your going to this area in the peak season I would call ahead, there are not many places to choose from in the area and the middle of the week in June was pretty busy. Make sure you take in the Ape Cave and other sights in area. I would stay here again. - laears

The owner is the nicest person! Our site was on a grassy knoll, probably had a lovely view but it was rainy when we were there. I was grateful for the grass (instead of dirt/mud). The 2 restroom/shower rooms were older, but clean. - Deb344

Love the mountains so this place is great. The owner is a very nice person and does her best to accommodate everyone. She makes it a point to say "hello" to everyone. Bathrooms are clean, yet busy. The fans in the bathrooms need to be repaired though, otherwise, you sweat to death when you take a shower. No concrete pads, but that is expected in a mountain park. Very clean and no problems with the long-term RVers. Wi-Fi is pretty good for the most part. No cell service, but we were not complaining. Satellite is hit and miss, depending on your spot and if it is obstructed. Owner does her very best to accommodate each camper, either with or without full services, tent or RV. We will definitely stay here again. - cdavis67

Cougar RV Park made our hunting trip really worthwhile. They were located very near the area we were hunting (within 10 miles), they also were located very near the local grocery and restaurant. They had a great area for tent sites and for RV's and let us combine our huge party in a very large site and didn't even charge for every site we actually took up. Although we were there during a slow time in the season, they didn't seem to mind us taking up the whole east side of their park at all. We all had a great time. The facilities are very quiet, well maintained, and provide garbage facilities at all sites. The restrooms were really clean and well stocked and no charge for a shower! We really cant wait to get back to this park next year. - matsigurl

Good site but people on one side were so close their firepit and table were right next to our hookups and slides - we got lots of smoke. But trains are constant and very loud. We asked what the hot tub temp is kept and told 104; this is perfect. We go on a hike, come back and change and head to the hot tub. It did not appear clean but we chose to use it anyhow - temp could not have be even 80. wife is a lifelong swimmer and swimming instructor (in the past)....she knows temps! Went to the office and told them and they just shrugged their shoulders. - AZSwede

We were assigned site 47 upon checking in. We drove to site with park host. Site was long and wide-good for pull through site. Then we discovered it was only a 30 amp site even though our confirmation said 50. I had to walk back to office and after an hour of waiting in the office they moved us to 46. Due to amount of pine trees there was no way to connect to our Dish tv service. Trees were nice though for the shade. It kept the RV cool.
This site is about as close as you can get to the railroad tracks. The trains blow their horn at precisely the KOA location. They run through starting at 5am, 5:30am, 6am then start up around 5pm, 5:30 pm, 6pm. Then again around 2am and 2:30am. I don't know about the rest of the day because we were out.
The trash situation is the worst I've ever experienced. They only have one trash area for the entire park which is right at the park office-entrance. Smelly, full of gnats and bugs, unorganized, regular old smelly trash cans for the recycle, which people were dumping their regular trash because the landfill bins were spilling over. It is a total mess and they should be written up by the health department.
We staid 3 nights. It's a shame this place is so bad because the area is absolutely stunning with natural beauty and endless activities. Sites and roads in park are mostly dirt. There seem to be quite a few full-timers there too. - Marilyn Froggatt

Nice shady level sites. Tight turns, glad I wasn't larger. Train noise but we're used to it so didn't bother us. Enjoyed the seeing of children. Most parks we stay in are pretty childless. Pancake breakfast on Saturday was a treat. Friendly staff who really worked with us when we went in to book a later stay for a week. Park was full both days we were there. - rvicsvol
