We have stayed here several times in the past and have been very happy. Wifi has been improved from our visit last year so we were happy about that. Very quiet. Wish they had an off lead area for the dogs. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
Watch out for local police checking speeds by the high school. Easy to miss.

The campground is very clean and the staff friendly. It is very quiet. It is far enough off of I-5 that there is no road noise. You can hear the occasional train on the other side of the Columbia River, or tug pulling a barge upstream. The short term sites are all pull throughs and set up so you can park your rig to take the best advantage of the view. Services are located together so two sites use the same power pole. There is one 50 amp and one 30 amp per power pole. Each site has it's own sewer and water, located by the power pole. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This RV Park is one of our favorites. Right on the Columbia River, big, long spaces, beautiful grassy areas, and lots of ships sailing up and down the river. We had a front-row space, which was a bit hard to back into since the motorhome next to us was up against the edge, but they got us in. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Great place to just relax and watch the river run. El Pepe's is a great place for Mexican food, the Walmart is very nice, and if you drive up to Longview, which is about 20 minutes north, Stuffy's II is great, plus there is loads of shopping in Longview. Woodland is very close to Vancouver for lunch at the Grant House at Fort Vancouver, and Portland for shopping. We stay here whenever we are in the area.

This was a one night stay in our transit to the Oregon Central Coast. Wonderful park with great views of the Columbia River. We had a river view pull through spot.
There is a Walmart near by. Did not have time to investigate the area but obviously close to Vancouver and Portland (~20 miles)
We will be back to stay longer. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice RV park ideally located right on the Columbia River. Short term rental pull-in sites and pull-through sites are situated so you are facing the water and can watch the beautiful sunsets and all the river traffic - barges, tankers, fishing boats, sailboats, paddlewheel tour boats. Long term residents are placed toward the back of the park. Wonderful, large grassy area between the river and RV sites. There are a few park benches and fire pits placed along the water's edge, so one can enjoy an evening fire. There is a very nice, sandy beach for walking along the Columbia in either direction. Within the park are paved roads, gravel sites (long enough for our 45' coach and tow) with picnic tables, children's play area, outdoor swimming pool, cable TV, WI-FI, restrooms/showers, and laundry facilities. The pool was closed during our stay, due to the time of year, and we did not use the restrooms/showers or laundry facilities, so we cannot offer a review of those. We found the office personnel to be very friendly toward us. But it is Very Important to Note: When checking in, be sure you show your Good Sam card PRIOR to using your credit card to pay for your stay...or you will not get the Good Sam discount. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.

Office staff very efficient. Easy parking. Loved our waterfront site. Lots of big ships. Lots are spacious with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface is gravel, featuring a picnic table. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.
Walmart about 4 miles.
Ate at Peeps in town. Local Mexican restaurant. Good food, low prices.
Stopped here to visit Dave&LJ RV Interior. Lots of furniture to check out.

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

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. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
The office has a great book/puzzle exchange. There are horseshoe pits, benches by the river, and a giant chess board. Propane prices here are also pretty reasonable. Easy access to
I-5, Safeway, and Wal Mart.

This is a great park! We have a pull through site that is level with good power, wifi, and cable TV. There is a grassy area between our rig and the Columbia River. We had a gorgeous sunset and many came out to watch. Our only negative is that we paid $54 a night with our little dog. This park is about 3-4 miles from I-5 and the busy train traffic. There is a Walmart near the freeway and a Safeway store. Many people were fishing from the beach. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
If we were going to stay longer, I'd check on weekly/monthly rates. The park was full on a rainy May day. Stock up at the store before you come. Bring your fishing gear!

If you stay here, be sure to grab one of the spots with unobstructed views overlooking the Columbia River. You've got a nice big lawn and a driftwood-littered (with trash-litter here and there) sandy beach, with several benches and fire pits. Lots of ships and tugs with barges go back and forth, and osprey, sandhill cranes, cormorants, eagles and more are present. While sitting on the beach, we had three osprey plunge down from trees behind us to grab a fish not more than 15-20' in front of us!
They have a great covered porch area, with easy-access ramps along with the restrooms at that same level, and the views were spectacular. WiFi is one of the fastest we've had on our nearly 2-year adventure, but we did have trouble with our email, as the clients on both of our MacBooks and iPhones failed to connect (we just got email by using our phones as hotspots). Hardly a peep at night (or day, for that matter) - no road noise, a very distant train horn every so often, and the very low rumble of shipping traffic. Just a very peaceful, idyllic setting. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.
Woodland has a very nice and new Walmart on the north of town, plus a Safeway store, Starbucks and other restaurants to the south.

This is a beautiful park and a Top 100 park from Good Sam. While it is quite beautiful and right on the river, the rules and office staff are a little off-putting. From the very first phone call to make the reservation to the check in and out, the office staff was quite curt and short, just short of rude.
I can see why this park gets good rates as the amenities and grounds are outstanding. The grass is lush and full and heavily watered even in an extreme drought. The beachfront access and beach is amazing. However, behold the RULES!
The rules are HEAVILY enforced when making the reservation on the phone and even more so in person. While I don't have too much problem with the rules, as we always abide by them, the way they are enforced seems a little excessive. They do not mince any words and go over them with a fine tooth comb - all 2 pages of fine print!
She stated that if you even park a tiny hair over the grass line they will make you move and don't even think about your dog barking - even once. They strictly say barking dogs are not allowed on-line and in their printed rules. Now, when do dogs not bark? We don't allow ours to bark more than just a first few barks of hello because we don't like it either but how can you stop them from completely barking? They also do not state anywhere on line or any of their literature, but they charge $2 a day for 3 dogs or more. They also charge for additional people over 4 and you can only have 6 max.
Also, they repeatedly state that dogs cannot be off leash and the leash must be in your hands at all times. HOWEVER, that must not apply to the people who work here as we repeatedly saw someone driving a golf cart on the grass with two dogs in the cart. This person would throw a tennis ball ahead of the cart about 25 feet and then the dogs would jump out and run after the ball, get back in the cart and start over again. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a good park for this area. It's on the river, which is nice, and in the summer the pool is open. Our site was facing the river and fairly flat, but we needed our levelers. The playground is minimal, but there's a large grassy field. There are a lot of rules, but the place is neat and tidy, and the rules all make sense. The washrooms and showers were pretty clean, but, to be fussy, not spotless. It's far enough off the I-5 that it's quiet, but not so far that you get lost. You can hear the trains, but in the distance, so it's just poetic. We would definitely come back here again. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.
A new Walmart (with groceries) is just off the I-5 on the road to and from the RV park, about 5 minutes away. There are also a few geocaching sites in the area (which we didn't get to).

GOTCHA SCAM ALERT****GOTCHA SCAM ALERT
We booked this park by phone and the lady noted we were Good Sam members. Upon arrival I walked into the office with my credit card and Good Sam cards available to be greeted by an old lady who asked my name and checked me in on their computer. She asked how I was going to pay then took my credit card, she very quickly swiped it then handed me the receipt to sign, I noted the rate was higher than the rate at the time of booking so asked if this was the Good Sam rate. She said no and that I had not handed her my Good Sam card, I said, I'm sorry, you could see I had it in my hand, I assumed you didn't need it since you didn't ask to see it. She replied, "we don't do that". I said, so you don't ask to see the Good Sam card even though the reservation was under the Good Sam rate and if a person does not immediately hand you the Good Sam card but hands you the credit card first, you run it as quickly as you can to avoid having to give the discounted rate?. She said yes !. I asked if she could reverse the charge and start again, she said no, it's too late you should have handed the Good Sam card to me first.
Folks, we have traveled from one side of this country to the other, stayed in many, many RV parks but had never come across so blatant a "gotcha" scam as we did at this RV campground here in our home state. I wonder what Good Sam would think of such deceitful practice?.
The park by the way is beautiful and well maintained, it's a pity the front office spoiled what would have been a pleasant stay and a much better review. We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great place! We were looking for a nice place on the Columbia river, without being in the city. This is it. The staff was very cordial (maybe they read some of the reviews). The grounds are spotless (due to a lot of rules). Some dog breeds are not accepted. Our spot overlooked the river with shipping, etc. WiFi worked great. No freeway noise. Excellent, we would stay here again... We camped at Columbia Riverfront RV Park in a Truck Camper.
