25 Parks near Vancouver, Washington
Jul 2009 - $18.00
We stayed here for a week, and were not especially happy with the park. The sites were too short for our 39 foot motorhome. The grass/weeds were not taken care of. There were many resident rvs, some not well taken care of. The rules, especially for quiet time, were not enforced. We will NOT return. Also many of the sewer connections did not have covers. - Kent Savage

The sites at this park are tight. They gave us Site 70 which just fit the length of our 45 ft coach, except we could not open the door because of an untrimmed tree. The rudest manager I have met in years informed me that they were busy and there was nothing he would do to rectify the problem. Eventually he did move us to Site 71 which does have a trimmed tree. Concrete pad is just wide enough for your wheels. Towed vehicle must be parked beside your rig and with slides it is difficult to get the driver side door open. Sites are so tight for larger rigs that trucks are sticking out in the street. It is very busy and I recommend reservations. Park is clean & well located. Our site was mostly dirt; no grass. - Freedom Bus

Great staff, they have activities nearly every day. Water Aerobics, line dancing, & Karoke and more! I have really enjoyed my stay. The personnel in the office are efficient and friendly, they get you in and out quickly so you can get hooked up. All sites are pretty flat so not a lot of leveling issues. Unhooking of toad is easy due to the relatively flat and straight roads. People (campers) mind the rules of quiet time, doggy rules and pool rules. There is no skate boarding, hover boarding or that type of activity allowed due to the vehicular traffic (safety concerns); bicycles are ok. Some campers are placed right next to the train tracks which is pretty noisy, but if you stay a while, you don't even hear it. Sounds like the ocean. (Good news, no train horns, :D ). The RV park area is very large and very well maintained. I have stayed here numerous times and it is my favorite park in the area. Call far in advance to get your reservations. - DebC_RVer

Cost is a monthly rate. This park is within 2.5 miles of the yellow line Expo train terminal. We purchased metro coupons and NEVER took the car into Portland. The convenience and cost is priceless. $5.00 a day allows you to ride train, bus and trolly. There is actually a stop at a nearby Fred Meyer grocery on the ride home. We often stopped and bought groceries on way home in the evening. Marine drive is a shortcut to I-84 and all that the Columbia River/gorge offers. All utilities located at rear of coach and worked well. Cable free as is wifi and both worked well. Concrete pad, however slanted front to back. Tow car parked beside coach.
The sites are very close together. We could hear the television from the camper across the street. The park is 75% permanent residents, however it is clean and tidy. We were offended by the "requirement" of a $35.00 fee each for a background check. We were uncomfortable as to what this might mean. The young man in the office could use some training on his language. When in the office with additional workers, he is quiet, calm and professional. When alone, his is swearing and complaining about this job being to stressful for a person his age. We would return to this park if visiting Portland again. - Eureka12

All in all, a nice facility, across the street from the Portland Yacht Club. Several good restaurants nearby. Paved streets, and pads. The sites are tight, but fairly easy to get into and out of. A paved bike path along the Columbia River and the airport starts about a mile away. WiFi is weak. Cable is analog. Pictures on local channels are better with an antenna. - ta96silver

We stayed for a week and got the weekly discount and a Good Sam discount. We stayed here 2 years ago and have returned because we liked it. As others have said, it is well maintained, clean and the sites are fairly level with good hook-ups. Yes, the wi-fi is almost non-existent but the cable TV is good. And, yes, the flight path for the near-by airport is right over head.
It is really not a campground but more a place where you live for a night or a week or a month or whatever. We find the location of this park good: it is close to Vancouver, WA if you want to visit the National Historic Site, it is within driving distance to the Columbia Gorge and all its attractions, it is only 2 miles from the Yellow Line Max if you want to get into Portland. We like to hike and an find ample trails around here. We would definitely stay here again when we are in the Portland area. - swike

Park is a mixture of long-term residents and short-term visitors. Kids enjoyed the heated pool and laundry was clean with multiple machines. Sites are gravel and paved with grass in between. Reasonably sized for a commercial campground. Landscaping was well taken care of. One benefit is that this is walkable distance to a shopping center with Target and several other chains, but unfortunately not a big grocery store. A bit noisy, like all urban campground, but if you are visiting the city, a good place to stay at a reasonable rate. Got 3 bars of Verizon cell and data service. - judy_online

On the take-off and landing path for the Portland Airport - noisy. Cable does not work unless you can adapt your tv to their comcast converter box and use the comcast remote. Wi-Fi is worthless - 100 feet away from the 'office' the signal is weak and intermittent - plus a lot of signing in must be done. Office staff are from Germany before the War and very defensive. Spaces are average/tight - only a few (8) are pull throughs. Price is about right for what you get - close in to Portland and the metro station. The actual Good Sam rate is $31.50. There is a pool and workout room. No camp fires. You step off your rig into grass/mud.
No pad. - Livermorered

We stayed 3 nights midweek in our 40' motorhome. Our site was right on the river. We had a very enjoyable time and had to say that it was the quietest campground that we have ever stayed. It is 30amp electrical water and some sites sewer. Most of the campground was long term residents but that was no problem. The bathroom was on the rustic side but kept clean. There was a shower in each of the bathrooms. There was no wifi but the Verizon signal was good. - Oregonhikers

A quiet park with a friendly lady that checked us in at her little store. It seemed there were mostly year around rigs in the park with many of them having an accumulation of possessions stored under and around their RVs. The river frontage sites were mostly very close together as were most of the other sites. We can handle rustic, but the sites being placed so close together and only 30 amp power means we probably would not return. - run2

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. - Jim Moyer

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. - Christopher Scott

Park has very tight spaces. It is very clean, spotless baths, laundry, and rest rooms. Cable TV is great, but get cable box at office. Price is high, but park was full. - johnmack

We stayed here for a week. Spaces are really close, WiFi is terrible. Very few cable channels.
Office personnel is very friendly. They do let you wash your car. Probably would not stay here again. - tookie

This was our first stay at a commercial RV park after the purchase of our fifth-wheel. We hated it - just a parking lot that has been parceled out for maximum profit. Owner & manager stuffed rigs in right next to each other even though park was sparsely occupied. Totally obsessed with their unimpressive narrow grass strips. This park left us feeling like we needed to get our rig outfitted for boondock camping pronto as this sort of park is like living in tenement housing. - MikenTerri

There are mostly long term people. The parks hostess is very nice. There is a long down hill driveway when you enter. There are only a few TV channels and half the time some don't work. The WiFi is iffy at best.
When I pointed it out and asked if there was any compensation-the answer was that the repair man was coming from Canada and he would be there in a few days. No refund of any kind.
For the price you would think that there would be more amenities.
You are paying for a place to park on a cement pad. The neighbor was so close that we could not put our awning down. - rvfool

We stayed overnight at this park. I have a 35 ft motor coach and it was difficult to fit in the site. It is incredibly difficult to maneuver a motorcoach in this park. The park is very cramped due to all of the seasonal RVs that are there and they are unsightly. There is no grass, no picnic table and no trees. I would not stay there again. - Perfection expected
Oct 2015 - $30.00
This is more of a long-term park, than an RV park. It appeared that many RVs were permanent residences. It is a very cramped park. We felt that we were really in an RV parking lot. We did appreciate the location as it is close to shopping, restaurants and travel routes. "Free WiFi" really means no WiFi. The people in the office know that's a problem but make no effort to fix it. Since WiFi is essential to us as we travel, we would give this one a miss in future. The standard pad is level cement but it is a challenge to park. There are some 'premium' pads near the office. - carliewired

This is a parking lot with "monthly" residents. One man had been there for 12 years. Our neighbor, whose trailer had not been moved in years, had a party every night until about 4 AM. She left her doors and windows open and had music blaring. When we complained to the front desk, we were told that "someone would talk to her". That didn't change anything.
Our space was so small that we could not open the car doors or the trailer door fully.
The rest rooms and laundry were nice and clean. There was a small room with a kitchen that was next to the office. This is the only place we could connect to WiFi. - GandolphJames

We came away with very mixed feelings after our week-long stay here. The park is well-maintained and the view of the river is just super. However, the folks who run the place just don't like RVers very much. We experienced many of the frustrations voiced in earlier reviews. They really gave us a hard time about the Good Sam discount. (Even though I went in clutching my membership card as advised.) When they finally grudgingly agreed to give us the discount, the nightly rate was magically $2 higher then what we were quoted on the phone. Then there were the rules, rules and more rules. Two pages of rules, many in all caps and some in all caps and underlined. Several workers spent most of their time driving around in golf carts making sure no one was violating the rules. It gave the place a kind of "under siege" feeling. Also, they clearly did not want people using some of the amenities. Both the pool and the upper viewing deck were kept roped off and unavailable. If you wanted to use them, you had to go to the office (when open) and request access. The extra layer of hassle seems to work as we never saw anyone using either one. Finally, the laundry room was beyond dreadful, with old rusty machines that worked poorly if at all. For the prices this place charges, they could certainly afford to provide decent laundry equipment.
To summarize, the great views just are not worth the hassle and we would probably not stay here again. - AZ_Sailor

This was our second visit here. We were in a upper spot, above the grassy field. VS my last review from 2015, this site was much better. No real dust to speak of. The owners are wonderful and the rest of the staff is so nice. Wide site, great views, and ok wifi, but only enough to check email. This park shows true pride of ownership. We will definitely return. - Mr&MrsFulltimers

This wasn't a bad park, but the ladies in the office almost ruined it for us. They were extremely rude on the phone and not much better when we checked in. I had reserved a 50 amp space but you share a utility pole with your neighbor and there's only one 30 amp and one 50 amp outlet so you get the luck of the draw. We couldn't reach our sewer but the ladies in the office said we wouldn't need to since we were only staying one night. They also didn't want us to unhook the truck or put our patio down for whatever reason but we did anyway. (We checked in around 1pm so we had a while to hang out.) There is a large pet walk area along the Columbia River. You can also fish from the banks but Walmart wasn't selling fishing licenses so we didn't get to try that. Motorcycles are not permitted in the park. - R-Gill513

Very tight spaces. I couldn't extend my awning if another RV was next to me. Tiny patch of grass in each space. Very strict about pets. Not allowed to walk them around the park. Only a tiny area to walk them, and the adjacent area past a chain link fence, under a bridge to a field. They specifically not to allow them to urinate on grass, flowers, etc. The couple that run the park seem to completely emphasize the rules over the fun, from the time I arrived to check in, and appear to watch over it on closed circuit cameras all the time. I set down a bag of recycling since I couldn't find any recycling bins and before I had a chance to go ask them where to put it they were out drilling me with questions about it. Frankly it started to feel a bit like a police state. The wifi is not free, but charge by the night. I didn't pay for it so I can't speak to the quality there. Otherwise the park is very clean all around. I doubt I'd stay here again. - spikeonline

Very nice people running the park. It was clean and neat but the spots are so small and narrow. We had to ask the neighbor to pull their awnings in just so we could get our slides out. This only left about 3 foot walking space between RVs. Very tight and hard to maneuver rig in and out of spots. The park was full and felt cramped. There is no room to sit outside your RV. We were parked right by the river but it is a steep embankment covered in weeds so there was no river access. The entrance and exit to the park is steep so you may drag bottom here. This might be a good park if you are in a small rig. We would never attempt it again in our big rig. - Arnold4adventure

Woodland Shores RV Park is just the best! Esther and Tom work their tails off to keep it that way. While there is easy access to Interstate 5 and local businesses, Woodland Shores is a quiet comfortable retreat along the North Fork of the Lewis River. Our assigned space was an end facing the river and only a shore walk to large well maintained bathroom/shower facilities. Tom stopped by and asked us if we were satisfied with our space and was there anything we needed. We have relatives in the area we visited and would gladly stay at Woodland Shores when we are again in the area. We suggest making a reservation. - arascal
