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. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
Read all the reviews on this park - it is nice in a beautiful setting but there are other issues.

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. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo

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. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.

Been here many times but this will be our last. As stated by many the location is great, right on the Columbia river. Negatives: may need to share a common electrical post if 5th wheel and MH are side by side. Only one 30 and one 50 amp on each post. First come first serve, if you are second you may end up with 30 amp service - poor option if hot and multiple A/C units reqd. But worst of all - guest rules. Quoted from their park rules: "visitor fees are %5 per vehicle or $2.50 per person whichever is greater. Max number of persons per site is 6, registered guests and visitors". So imagine if grandma/grandpa want family of 5 to visit. Sorry that exceeds the 6 max - you've got to be kidding!!! Of course 4 guests are OK if you are willing to pay $10. Again, are you serious!! Next time we will go 20 miles up the road to Kelso. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Beautiful setting right on the river. Watch the ships go by from your site or stroll down and sit on one of the benches provided at the riverbank. Owner is very friendly and grounds are well manicured. Will stay here again!! We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Clean, well maintained park. The sites were a little on the small side but that was made up for by the Columbia River being in your backyard. We did have Wi-Fi, but they need a repeater on the left end of the park, as it was slow and sometimes spotty. AT&T was good, good power, 50 amp, water pressure was good as well. We stayed here for 4 days and loved it. We'd come back. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo

This is a beautiful RV park right on the Columbia River. I would have given this park a higher mark, but it is advertised as pet friendly, but I would not consider it really pet friendly. They have a huge grassy area by the river but they were watering it everyday during the day. The lady at the desk when we checked in gave us a hard time about getting there at 11:55. She told us next time to remember that check in is After 12:00 noon. She was efficient but not very friendly. The campers at this park who were just staying a short time were very friendly, the longer term campers, not so much. They are Very strict on their rules, for most things. Although, I did see some clutter around sites and even a clothes line hanging from 2 RVs which was against their rules. I don't think we would return.

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!

This park is way overpriced for what you get, except there is no extra charge for sandblasting your RV from the blowing nearby sand banks. I can't understand how anyone could rate this place a 9 or better unless they never left their RV. The view is nice, but the spots are tight and there is no shade or privacy of any kind.

We stayed here in May and again in November. Everything about this park is great except the restrooms. The same unfinished restrooms in May greeted us in November. I think the construction tools were laying in the same locations. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo

We were in one of the pull thru sites(49 to 58). The main problem with these sites is they are set up for motor homes not fifth wheels. The hook up connections were were on the wrong side which caused us to run our connections by entry door. The sites are very close together with very little grass and mostly gravel. The river view was great, but the beach was dirty from debris. The Wi-Fi is limited to one device per site. Not very user friendly if you have smartphones and laptops.The park was close to our home and convenient, but we will not return again. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Nice. Right on the river, a couple miles from I-5 and the railroads, reasonably quiet. Did hear ships going by and could hear then train whistles, but not too bad. The pull-through slots are all designed to allow you to park the rig in either direction, to maximizes your view (of the river) from your rig. The only down-side is they were remodeling the bathrooms and about half the facilities were torn apart. We certainly would stay here again.

This is a wonderful well maintained, clean, big rig friendly park. Our site was right on the river which made for wonderful walks. We enjoyed watching the big barges and sea going ships come and go. Huge grassy area for walking dogs. Ours loved swimming in the river. I would definitely stay here again! Also, there is a super Walmart at the I-5 exit for stocking up.

This is a great park. Yes the wind blows but we sat out every night till sunset. WIFI and cable was really great. Staff very good. We were in site 76, the one premium site that is closest to the river. It did cost more and they do not honor any discounts on this site. However, you get a large patio area and there is a very large grass area that is for that site's use only. Good paved roads and gravel, lots of gravel sites. Well off the freeway. Will stay every time we go through here. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.Undo
