The campground is quite nice We stayed in site 20 and had a wonderful experience. The blacktop roads are easy to maneuver and keep the dust down. There is plenty of grass between the well spaced sites. The laundry room is clean with large machines and reasonable prices. We would definitely stay here again. - Melissa Koppenhaver

Very small and cramped; barely enough room to maneuver around one way streets. FHU pull through and back in sites; electric good and water quality good. To get to our site I had to pull in front of other sites and then back down the road to park at our site. No clubhouse or pool, or playground. Has tent area. Charge for shower use; Wifi & cable TV. Some sites have grass but most have large rocks, which are hard on the feet. Large lot down the hill to walk the dogs but no place to let them loose. Trail down to the river. Well maintained & clean; friendly staff. Only place to walk was on sidewalk toward Bingen. - Kerch Family

Nice compact, well maintained RV park. Some site are grass some have washed stone. The closer to the office the better the wifi. Good Verizon and T-Mobile signal. Good gas station right at entrance of park for motorhomes. Park has a large grass dog area. It is not fenced but there are only two openings one at each end. NOTE: Do not use Hood Bridge, or if you do, turn in your mirrors, very narrow white knuckle bridge. Use the bridges East or West. Tunnels both ways are doable, but some you may have to take toward the center. My Garmin gps showed lower tunnel height than how they really were. In general the higher the site number the less train noise. Did not find it bothersome. We were in 29 grass site, and parking for toad. Good FHU's mid site. Did see some using a board to level one side. Laundry facilities are good. Camp hosts very nice, easy to work with. Back in sites are angled and easy enough. Some sites have satellite access, if this is important call ahead. Would defiantly stay here again. - wtravlr1

Spots are level and spacious. It was very nice for a fair grounds.
The only thing I didn't like was the lack of a dump station. - Impkitti

This is a clean park with occasional distant train noise. Some events can also be noisy.
Sites are near-level unshaded grass. Voltage is good.
WiFi is strong. I measured 868.5 kB/s down.
Verizon LTE works well.
TV: ABC CBS FOX PBS. VHF weather radio is very weak.
The manager is friendly and helpful.
Unfortunately, camping is only allowed when some event is held, so it's best to call ahead well in advance. - wjzcbn

This is basically large open fields with various pedestals with the lights for the parking area of the fields on them that also have power boxes with outlets for 20 and 30amp plugs. There's not too many of 30amp outlets available, so pick a spot near a pole that hasn't got too many people already hooked to it. Water spigots are available, but no sewer hookups, but there is a dump station on site. Best to call ahead, as the sites are not always open, depending on weather the fields may be too wet to allow vehicles in to without sinking. Bathrooms are very clean and well built and coin operated, but very generous with the amount of time you get per quarter. All proceeds from the showers goes to help support the local 4-H Club in the Odell/HoodRiver area and hot water is plentiful. One of the funnest times to visit is if you're passing through the area and happen to be able to hit it during the Blossom Festival in April, if you're lucky you might run across a group of classic Winnebago motorhome owners who hold their "Hoodstock Jamboree" there each year :). - The Redneck Express

Absolutely NO quiet! Between the freeway noise and the railroad, you could hardly hear yourself think! Never, never again! The campsites themselves are not bad. There is very little privacy between the sites - the entire area is very open. The best sites are down along with water. You have a little less traffic noise and if you don't mind trains, you have a chance. The staff was very helpful. The area was kept clean and they were attempting to keep the grounds green by watering. There is ice on site which was nice since getting anywhere from the campground is a challenge. Keep in mind that the park can only be accessed from I-84 westbound and is located off the rest area. That means going eastbound you have to go three miles past the campground, use exit 76 and go under the freeway and head west back on I-84 before you arrive. Too bad there are no road signs telling you this. You do get a sign eastbound telling you to use exit 76, but then there was nothing. Found ourselves on top of a cliff with a 40 foot trailer thinking this was the way - there were no road signs!!! Just not my favorite site...sorry! - Barney2017

Beautiful state park on the Columbia River. There is no river access from the park, but there is plenty of access in the area. Close to fun and trendy Hood River, lots of water activities, wineries and beautiful scenery. the only drawback is the closeness to I-84 so there's quite a bit of highway noise. - RV Wizards

We stayed 6 yrs ago and came back again. We love this park, would stay a month if allowed. Very helpful ranger...we picked a space and started to hook up and found sewer was backed up. Ranger came by at that moment and said darn, someone moved my orange cone. He said I am gonna move you to our emergency spot A59, backs to river. But could only do it for 3 days. Then we moved up top to A12 for 4 days. First space was 59' (largest they have) up top was 44' but large enough to put our 40' MH and full size car across front. Trains down by river would rumble some, no biggie and up top traffic was only noisy during day. By dinner, we would be outside eating and lighting a fire and traffic noise was very light. Only thing I don't like about the park is location. There is no on/off ramp for in either direction. You go to Hood River, you have to go far east almost to The Dalles to turn around and come back west to park. To go to The Dalles you have to go west to Mosier exit to go back east past park to get to The Dalles. Also wish trees were trimmed a bit more so can put out awning. Need more lights so tenters, etc. can see way to bathrooms or dog walking. Very dark at night! 2 hosts on site. One other small negative. B LOOP- to get onto B LOOP you have to take a turn that dips down and leans very sharp. Motorhome tail bottoms out at bottom of dip. Bit unnerving. Unfortunately B LOOP has most of the longer and full hook up sites. Would and will be back. - Victoria Grace

Best thing about this park is quiet which is why we chose it. Other parks are too close to busy highway and train tracks. There are about 40 sites with water hookups but no electric. Showers and bathrooms are old and run down but I suppose clean enough - they were cleaned daily. Best for smaller rigs but there are a few that can accommodate larger rigs. Pads are small but some are open enough that you can hang over the pad if needed. There was a 40 footer when we were there. Beautiful Hood River runs through it. There is a geocache at the park if you participate in geocaching. Also picked fresh wild blackberries while there. We stayed 4 days and I would stay again. - utchaps

This Hood River County park is located on 36 acres along the South bank of the Hood River. The campground is close to town, yet quiet (no trains). The sites are kind of spread around with two sections, one mostly for RV's and the other for tent campers. Sites are available on a first come first serve basis with no reservations. We stayed in site E which had a wonderful view and sound of the roaring Hood River below. There is playground equipment, a picnic shelter, tables, and fishing. RVs up to 30' are allowed. The showers and bathrooms were in terrible condition and we didn't use them. Also be aware that the two electrical outlets next to sites M and N were not working at the time we stayed and didn't look like they had worked in a long time, however there is plenty of water at almost all the sites. - josh970506

Well, this is a nice little park with one big caveat, which is the railroad crossing on the river access road, and one small caveat, which is the lack of even a dump station. Traveling solo and male, I was able to stretch my tanks, but other should take note.
I spent 12 nights in the site nearest the railroad crossing and survived. I sort of like being near trains, but the horns are very loud. Nonetheless, I grew accustomed to it, and wasn't awakened more than once or twice. But that's me, everybody responds differently.
The park has two major advantages. One is actually the railroad crossing... because so many people dislike trains, it's possible to get a space on a summer weekend without booking far in advance. I was able to book summer weekends 3-4 weeks ahead. The other advantage is that it's one of the few parks that has Columbia River access, a nice little picnic area that's only a short walk away.
On an earlier 2-night visit, I arrived to find my site occupied. Just a trailer, no tow vehicle, hooked up but nobody around. The host was very helpful, and they moved me to a "reserve" site that they kept open for such things. So thumbs-up to the staff for handling it well. - bobk3d

The only reason I gave this a 3 star rating was due to the trains that run directly in back of the park at all hours. You also get road noise from very busy highway. The park itself is very well kept and you do get power. The camp host was very friendly and did forewarn us about the train. If it wasn't for the train blowing it's whistle every time it goes by, you might get used to the train noise. We planned on staying here 3 nights but only stayed 2 and forfeited our third night's stay. I would not stay here again. - travelerofusa

Previous reviews are right, the trains sound like they're going to plow right into your RV. And they run all night long. The highway is noisy, too but we tuned it out after two days. Despite what phone reservation reps tell you, there is no RV dump station here. They have electric and water hookups but no dump station anywhere except the camp host site, which they will not let you use. The closest dump station is 6 miles one way in Hood River at the Water Treatment Plant on the north side of exit 64. The showers are hot. We had great AT&T coverage. TV antenna only picks up two PBS stations. No laundry facilities. The Columbia River is accessible from the campground. - LifeRidingShotgun

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

Wyeth Campground is a USFS campground on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge. It is close to all of the fun stuff in the gorge, and is an excellent alternative to the state parks and private campgrounds. Like most forest service campgrounds, it has no hookups, no dump station, and no showers, but does have a restroom with flush toilets, and several water spigots. The campground is clearly marked no big rigs, 30 foot max. Our 25 footer had plenty of room. I think a 32 foot rig could get in, but anything larger would be really pushing it. There is a grassy overflow area that a big rig could get into if there weren't a lot of other campers. Sites are spacious and paved. Really nice. We reserved site #9, but when we got there, we found site 9 was on a steep enough slope that we didn't have enough leveling blocks to level. We switched to site #13, one of the walk-up sites, which was only about an inch out of level. The campground is heavily forested. Satellite and solar panels are never going to work. We didn't try the TV. Verizon and AT&T were both strong. The main problem with all the campgrounds in the gorge is the noise. I-84 goes down the Oregon side of the gorge, and there are train tracks on both sides. We could hear the freeway all the time, and frequent trains. We heard a few train whistles, but they were far enough away that they didn't bother us at all. My main complaint with this campground would be the price. It was $20/night for a site with no amenities. The campground was beautiful. The site was nice. But the price was a bit high for what you get. - AnnP

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

The camp hosts were constantly on the move asking folks how their stay was going as well as making sure the park was spotless. The water was very soft and had good pressure. The power never went out and was always at 110V even though the park was full and the weather was a bit warm (80-85) during the day. So AC's were running. No cell service (A good thing in my book) as there are much better thing to do in this area than always looking down. But there is a small satellite based hot spot at the office to check emails. The views of Mt. Adams from the RV park was simply awesome. Our site was one of the tighter ones, But was still fine for our 36Ft. Class A Motor Home. We highly recommend Elk Meadows RV park. - super7pilot

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

As others have said larger vehicles are somewhat of a problem in the full hookup sites. But, very manageable. The sites are wide and well laid out we were in #11. The maximum stay is 7 days. But, if there is room you can just move to a different spot for the next 7 days. Lots and lots of trees so no wifi, no satellite. We have T-Mobile and could only get a signal away from the campsite. Everything else worked very well. The campground hosts were Lori and Tom. They are hard workers and really keep all reservations and the sites in good shape. For a very restful stay give it a try. - bdixon2297526

Great campground! All area's are cleaned each day by the camp-hosts. Nice quiet park. Big rigs over 40' can be a challenge, but will work. LOTS of trees, so not a good place for satellite tv. No wifi. Verizon & AT&T work with about 2-3 bars in this area. Full hook ups in what is called the RV LOOP only. The rest have power and water, but there is a dump station for campers to use as part of the payment. - tomandlori

We love a park like this. Beautiful hidden gem half way between Hood River and Mt. Hood. RV sites with FHU and separate tent loop. There's 2 loops with partial hook ups and some sites on the rivers edge. Quiet and peaceful. Nice place for families. No hiking trails in the park but tons of trails for both hiking and mountain biking in the area. Camp hosts very helpful and deliver firewood to your site! We have both Verizon and AT&T and get enough bars to stream. - BobKat Parker
