We filed an official complaint with Good Sam Club about this RV Park.
We made a reservation at this park for 1 night. At that time we advised that we were Good Sam Members and she said we would get the Good Sam discount when we checked in.
When we checked in the receptionist asked for my credit card and charged the full rate. I asked if that was the Good Sam discount rate and she said "oh - no - you have to lead with that. You have to show me your card first thing." I asked if we could start over and she said no - what's done is done. We feel they should post that requirement in the office or on their website. Or ask us up front like all the other G.S. Parks do.
Other than that - It is a beautiful park and extremely well maintained. We think that the complaints about the hookups are actually a plus for us because you get a really big site. Big enough to park our trailer and our full size Tundra next to it. The hookups are arranged so that a motor home could head in or back in to take advantage of the view. The view of the Columbia river with the big ships going by and seals bobbing up and down is unbeatable. The restrooms are good but could use an update. The rest of the staff was very friendly. We do appreciate their attention to detail as far as the requirements for the sewer hoses and staying off the grass and out of the road. It makes for a nicer stay for everyone.
We might stay here again - but would like them to address the Good Sam Discount issue. - NiMo
Only stayed one night but had great riverfront site. It was quiet except you could hear hourly trains in the distance. People at front desk were good and all hook ups worked. In the morning we could smell the paper mill across the river but it wasn't awful. Good overnight stop. - Emerald Bay
Got a nice lot overlooking the river, was fun to watch the birds and ships on the water. For the rate I would expect a paved site. Wi-Fi was typical bad and did not use. Owner apparently had a private webcam and he instructed the staff to have me move the car as I had parked it perpendicular instead of beside our motor home. I had asked the office and they said it was fine. Park is nice but a picky owner killed it for me, we stayed 4 days but were going to stay 7 - hope that having my car parked correctly according to him was worth $120 to him.
By the way no more than 3 of the from 15 river view sites were occupied on the four days. - rr2254545
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
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
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
