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
The first time we stayed at this park we really enjoyed it because of the wonderful view. Unfortunately we returned this year in Oct. We'd made a reservation 2 weeks in advance, stressing that we wanted a pull-through, were 43 ft. with a tow and needed 50 amp. When we got there we discovered that this park has converted one site into 2 sites, making parking very close. Worse yet, there is only one power pole and whoever arrives first gets the 50 amp (which is not told to you when you make the reservation). Being an all electric RV out set up went from the normal 10 minutes to a 1.5 hr. saga as they tried to hook us up to a 50 amp 2 sites away! ONLY after the nice man next door agreed to move his 50 amp to one site away could we finally reach his 50 amp with our 50 ft line AND an extension. And we needed an extension for not only the power cord but also the sewer and the cable. This is NOT a user friendly RV park because of the conversion of one site into two. In my mind if you have the policy "first come, gets the 50 amp", you cannot take reservations for a 50 amp without telling them of your greedy policy - you get charged for a 50 amp but you may not get one. - katsuey
These are the issues we dealt with on a recent visit: Lots of wind with river location - no shade to speak of. Spaces are fairly tight. NO Good Sam/AAA discounts unless you ask at check in - otherwise you’re out of luck. WiFi had been down for parts for 2 weeks before our arrival plus 11 days of our stay.---no discounts offered for lack of service. In fact, they have a large sign posted at the desk “NO REFUNDS”. Bathrooms are still under construction. Past park reviews show they have been undergoing “remodeling” since 2012! Men’s has only 1 shower, the 2nd shower is used for paint and tool storage! The Women’s bathroom has 2 showers but only 1 is really useable because they use very large shower heads in small showers with split shower curtains that allow water to run out all over the floor of the dressing area. Asked management to put a mat in there so you didn’t have to stand in water,and their response was “ most people use their own showers”!! Guess they should reduce their prices, if they don’t want to provide decent amenities-- which we pay for! Not very pet friendly. Pets only allowed to be taken to the large riverfront lawn - and nowhere else. Lots of “No Dogs here” signs in other lawn areas. In the summer, the lawns are full of clover and BEES and WASPS.. Even trying to avoid the bee/wasp areas, our dog got stung and required emergency vet service that resulted in a $200 bill! Informed management of the problem and their response was “well-that’s nature!”. They cut the grass and clover, but do nothing to eradicate the clover. Informed them that they have a hazard that should be addressed since they force you to only use this one area for your pets. Their response was “ we’ll check with Animal Control” - a ridiculous statement! They have nothing to do with getting rid of the bee problem - this is a park owner problem - and they chose to ignore the issue. This park has high prices and a poor management attitude. It’s too bad because the park has a nice setting with river views of the ship traffic. It appears that it takes a long time to correct issues and problems in this park. We will not return! - buzzard14
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
