This campground was a real disappointment. Pool was nice, Wi-Fi was very good, but our site had not been picked up. There were cigarette butts and small pieces of trash throughout the site. A 2 minute walk-through by staff would greatly enhance the appearance of the site. We also had the neighbors from hell next to us. They were talking and laughing very until 10:30. Their own rules stated quiet time starts at 9:30 but there was nobody around to enforce any rules. I never did see any park staff driving through the park. This park gets good reviews from other campers and the park on the other end of town gets panned (for good reason, we've stayed there many times) but I will be staying at the other park after this because it's closer to town.
As mentioned in previous reviews, the owner is very pleasant and the sites with grass are very well maintained. He really made an attempt to keep the place as neat and clean as possible. That said, the sites are very close together and a good portion of them are seasonal RVers. Some of the seasonal RV rigs are not in great shape. Other campers walked through our site but I didn't see any alternative so I didn't let it bother me. There's not any great places to stay in Long Beach so this may be as good as it gets close to town.
This is an old campground right off of Highway 84. Sites are not level. Lots of road noise due to the major highway and it's proximity. We stopped here just as an overnight place of rest but wouldn't include it as a destination location.
Average campground we used just for an overnight stop. Main reason we stayed here was that it had a pool for the kids. Pool was well maintained. Nearby feed lot brought a fairly strong aroma at times depending on wind direction. The cafe menu is very limited and the cafe itself didn't look inviting in the least. Ice cream social had only the basic four flavors of ice cream. Office had a much better selection of ice cream.
This was just a place to stop for the night. No privacy between sites. Voltage was too low to use the AC probably because everybody else was using their AC. Had to be very judicious with power use. Well kept pool for the kids was great. Animal presentation in the evening was perfect entertainment for the kids.
Nice little park close to Crater Lake. The only FHU park in the area. Diamond Lake provides some great entertainment opportunities. Boat rentals, fishing, hiking, and biking are all close by. There's an excellent 11 mile paved bike trail that encircles the lake. Wi-Fi was too slow to be usable but I didn't care as I wasn't there for the Wi-Fi. No phone service available for my AT&T cell phone. Sites are close together and don't offer much privacy. No mosquitoes when we were there, just gnats. A bit dusty, but manageable.
Terrific little RV park next to Foster Lake. Infrastructure looked like it was still new. All sites have concrete pads, privacy fences to separate your hookups from the site next door, excellent site markings, and nice lighting. Boat rentals on site, or if you bring a boat, they have a really nice marina and boat launch. They quit advertising their WiFi because of previous complaints and overloading but we had excellent service the whole time we were there.
Beautiful State Park located on a nice lake. Nice swimming area, lots of open spaces and well tended lawn areas. Boat launch available for those so inclined. East campground is better suited for motorhomes, trailers, and truck campers as the sites are more level and larger. However, since this is an older campground, even the paved sites are not very level. Camp store close by for refreshments and a few other supplies.
This is not a campground I would chose to stay at again. It was very dry and dusty and if it weren't dusty, it would be muddy. Right on the river but river was not accessible. Several permanent residents with run down and trashy sites.
Very nice RV park right on the river. There's a few river front sites available for smaller rigs. Sites are very close to each other, so close in fact that my sewer connection was right next to my neighbor's picnic table. Just a bit awkward. Friendly staff and well maintained facilities.
Very nice small State Park. Apparently they have a dated infrastructure as we were requested not to run our microwave and to be judicious with other power use. Very spacious sites and well maintained grounds. They have a really nice boat launch. Biggest problem typical of the Columbia River is that it was VERY windy. Couldn't be outside of the rig after about 4pm. Wind blew until about 2 or 3 am.
Facilities are in excellent shape. Neighborhood not so good (industrial park and rundown houses), but the facility is fenced and gated so security is not a problem. Full timer sites are kept very clean. The only clue that they were full timers was the oversize propane tank in front of their rig.
This is our 6th and last year to camp here. There are not many nice camp sites in this campground. We signed up too late to get our favorite spot, so we settled for a site that was less than favorable. When we arrived, we discovered the site was only 20 amp and not 30 amp as stated. We also discovered this site had no cable TV. It would have been nice to go elsewhere but everything was booked for sandcastle weekend.
This is our favorite state park. It has a great swimming area with a special place for the toddlers. The staff keeps this park very green in the summer. There is lots of play room for the kids. If trains bother you, you won't like this campground. Trains run around the clock on both sides of the river. One set of tracks is right behind the park so get a site down by the river for reduced noise. The Maryhill museum is an easy drive. In the summer there's a couple of very nice fruit stands within walking distance. There is a boat launch at the campground.
Hosted this park for the month of October. This is a wonderful park with a great staff. Six miles of moderate hiking trails. Three cabins with room for an RV and three platform tents with room for a small RV are available. Problem with the platform tents is the pit toilets. Campground has limited number of shower stalls (2 in the main campground). There's a beach available for seasonal clamming/oyster picking. A large herd of elk (up to 70 strong) can be seen in and around the park in the fall and winter. Within walking distance of 2 restaurants, a gas station, and a liquor store.
Only 6 hookup sites available at this park and all are in a deep woods setting. The small lake is stocked with trout and a very popular fishing spot. Lake also has nice roped off swimming area for the kids (none under 4 allowed in the water). Many folks had kayaks, inflatable rafts, canoes, and small row boats. Motor boats are not allowed on the lake. Close to the lake is a small concession stand with hot dogs, other small snacks, and bait. This campground also has a nice little playground and a couple of large open areas. There's also several covered locations for group functions.
This campground is located on a north facing slope so be prepared for mostly dark and chilly especially if you're tenting. The RV site (3) we parked on wasn't level. All RV sites are next to the highway so there is some road noise. The electrical infrastrucure is inadequate. We had a 30 amp hookup but a draw of anything over 15 amps would drag the voltage down to under 108V which is unacceptable in my book. We had to make sure we only used one high current appliance at a time. I couldn't really recommend this campground unless you're just using it for a stop over. The best feature of the campground is the overnight boat moorage with a dock and a couple of picnic tables. Great view from there with plenty of sea life (seals, stars, crabs, and fish). There is a boat launch but you have to time boat launches and retrievals with the tides. When the tide is out it's unusable.
Serviced sites 1 through 60 have all new facilities to include new pavement, showers, heads, fire pits, picnic tables, and hookups. Many miles of trail, jetty, or beach hiking/walking available to those so inclined. There is also two accessible light houses and a comprehensive interpretive center for the history buffs all within two miles of the camp sites.
This campground is at the tail end of a major overhaul. All hookups are brand new, new picnic table, new fire pit, and all sites have been repaved. There was a new shower/restroom facility near by but we didn't use it. Our site was unbeatable with a 200 foot path directly to the huge beach. Miles of trails in the woods or on the beach. There's also a restored operational lighthouse just a couple of miles away.
The camping sites are huge with lots of room between sites. There's a day use park right next door with lots of trees and large open areas. The night we stayed there the wind surfers and kite boarders put on a good show for us. There's a couple of train tracks close by that can annoy or delight depending on your perspective. If you're a light sleeper the trains will wake you up.
This RV Park has lots of tent sites. Big rigs have to park in a side by side open area in the middle of the park. We had a nice secluded site next to the horse stables (site 44). They have 23 horses for beach rides. They also have small cabins on site that include cooking and showering facilities. Lots of rabbits roam the park for added entertainment value.
Site was too narrow to deploy slide-out and awning at same time. No picnic tables and no good place to put out camp chairs. Facility had just been redone so all hook-ups were in great shape. Convenient to everything because it was right downtown, but consequently lots of road noise.
