We wanted to camp at this $10 a night city park while in the Clatskanie area so called ahead of time to see if they had vacancies. They did, per camp host, but he told us the park couldn't accommodate 40 ft motor homes, so after setting up our rig at another CG in the area we drove into town and surveyed the city park. The only rig in site at that time was the camp host's 5th wheel and there were plenty of sites available in an asphalt parking area with nice grounds, we were so sorry we didn't survey the area prior to paying $30 a night at nearby private CG. Several times we drove by the city park and sure enough there were motor homes parked there. We would have gladly given our money to a city park rather than a private CG. We hope other big rig travelers will give them a night or two stay, it's a nice little town and has a nice laundromat and Safeway across the street so you can wash and shop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
