We enjoyed our stay in this park. It is right on the lake very near to the downtown area of CdA. It is well maintained, has modern facilities, and the park will accommodate any size RV. The staff was both responsive and polite. The sites were gravel with paved asphalt roads. The sites had adequate distance between one another with lawn dividers for many of the sites. Most sites are pull through. Shade was limited but there is a beach with a swimming area for park guests. Lawn chairs were provided on the beach. The bathrooms were clean and very private. Wi-Fi was weak but that seems to be par for the course. We would come back again.

This park is very clean and well maintained with up to date hook ups and bathroom facilities. The managers were very friendly and helpful. Most of the sites are pull through depending on when you get there as many pads are shared with another RV that are parked back to back. We had a pad to ourselves but found the sites to be very close together with very little privacy. There were a number of long term guests but everyone was friendly and polite. Not a lot of shade for many of the sites but there was a lawn divider between the sites. The park is located in town but off a heavily used road. The Wi-Fi was spotty but most parks seem to have that issue. There are many stores close by for you shopping needs. This is a functional park, a park to stay the night while you are passing through the area, if you needed a place to stay. But not a quiet and comfortable place to stay for more than a day or two. We would try another park before going back to this park.

This is a park that is in a beautiful setting next to the Columbia River Gorge. Though you can hear the trains traveling through the valley in the distance this is a very peaceful and tranquil park set in the forest. It is a very well maintained and clean park with soft green lawns for the kid and pets to play on and clean bathrooms for discriminating adults. The bathrooms are not fancy but they are spacious and clean. The park has gravel roads and pads that are easy to back into with adequate spacing between pads. It did not look like it could handle big rigs very well and they did not appear to have pull through sites. But check first to see how they can accommodate you. Some pads are closer together than others but the forest helps to add privacy and solitude. Hook ups were well placed and up to date. The managers were very helpful and friendly. The biggest draw back to the park was the gravel road as the park was located on hilly terrain. We were advised to use 4 wheel drive to get up one hill but I don't believe it was necessary. The family next to us had a light weight SUV & a TT and they did not have any problems with traction. We would come back again.

This park has up to date and clean bathrooms. The employees were polite and helpful. The hook ups were up to date and easy to use. The Wi-Fi worked great as we were close to the office. The spaces were close together and narrow with gravel roads and sites that were not well maintained. It was not a fancy or very attractive park as parks can be in this area. It is right next to the highway with the noise that can come with it. I was a little disappointed in this park as it was recommended to us yet it was not as spacious or nice as I expected. I think there are nicer parks in the area and would seek them out before I would go back to this one.

We enjoyed our stay at Chief Timothy. The park was clean, had a very friendly manager, lots of green lawns and adequate privacy between the many pull through spaces. There are lots of trees and shade. The park is not modern or fancy but has full hook ups, paved roads and sites, as well as plenty of room for most rigs. There is no Wi-Fi and we could not get a 3G connection either. The park is located in a canyon like area so when vehicles travel by on the highway the noise can be annoying because it deflects off the canyon wall. When there is no traffic it is a very quiet and peaceful place. But again we were there in the off season and nearly had the place to ourselves. The manager said they get very busy during the peak season times so keep that in mind. We would come back.

After experiencing other Oregon State Parks we were a little disappointed with Valley of the Rogue State Park. Even though it is just yards from the Rogue River, in short it was dry and worn out and our site had limited shade. If you are a river rafter then this park might meet your needs. We were just passing through and decided to stay only one night. The park has full hook ups available, but not at all sites. Our problem was finding a site that was long enough to accommodate our 25' trailer and still have full hook ups. We were unlucky on that account. There is a dump station for those who don't have full hook ups. Still if you are a fisherman or rafter you most likely will enjoy this park. We will not be returning.

The best part about this park is its beautiful location. It is in the forest next to Lake of the Woods which is picturesque. The park is very rustic but was clean and the staff was friendly when you saw them. The sites were not the best but then most people are coming here to fish and to enjoy the forest. Our site was close to our neighbors with no buffer to soften the visit. The sites are dirt and ours was not very level. The hook ups accommodated all RV's but they only provided basic amenities and a picnic table. I say this because I felt it was expensive for what you got. In addition the park was laid out in a confusing manner and it took a few laps around the park before we figured out the location of our site. This is a very beautiful setting for camping but the cost will keep us from going back. I would rather dry camp in the surrounding forest at 1/3 the cost.

For a State/Public camp ground we really like Collier State Park Camp Ground. The staff was very friendly and they kept the grounds clean and spotless. Oregon has a very user friendly campground system for RV's and Collier is one of the best. Many sites are well shaded. The roads and sites are all paved with hook ups to meet all RV'ing needs. Many sites have a nice buffer of trees and shrubbery between sites but others are out in the open. Still the spacing is not uncomfortable. There are a number of drive through sites but most are back in. Some are a little tight to get into as the narrow road and trees can make it challenging for novices. We would stay here again.

This park is outstanding. It is well managed with a friendly and responsive staff. The grounds are clean and perfectly manicured with flowers, a lake with fountain that is stocked with fish for your fishing enjoyment and level and paved sites throughout. Most sites are pull through with beautiful grass dividers between spacious sites. Many sites are shaded as well. The bathrooms are almost decadent in how they are decorated and designed. The tile and fixtures were over the top for an RV park. Pool and miniature golf rounds out this beautiful facility. It is expensive, in my opinion but we felt it was worth it. The only draw back is there is road noise as the park is right next to Hwy 20 but that seems to be par for the course for many parks. This park has everything you would want in an RV park and then some. I would stay here again.

This is a very nice park. The staff is very friendly and even though this park is not new it is nicely landscaped with flowers throughout and lawn buffers areas between each site. Sites are nicely spaced with lots of shade for each site as well. Almost all sites are pull through. There are train tracks a short distance away but we were not bothered by the few trains that passed through. The biggest issue are the sprinklers that kick on at 11pm (no warning) which will soak your outdoor gear if they are not covered and your RV if it is parked too close to the lawn. I would certainly stay here again.

We stayed here one night as we were passing through and found Iron Horse to be very clean and friendly. Sites were gravel with a nice concrete pad for out door living. Although the park was nicely paved and cared for there were not many trees for shade. As we were there on a cool day it was not a problem. Some sites have grass buffers between sites. Spacing between sites was adequate. There were many full time campers, many working in the area but everyone was friendly. The local police showed up (three patrol cars) for some type of problem but it was addressed quietly and in a dignified manner. I would stay there again.

Although this park is not new or fancy it was clean and friendly. There were many trees for shade and privacy and the spacing between sites was very good. Also there was grass between most, if not all the sites which not only made a nice buffer between the sites but kept dirt and dust out of the RV. The sites were gravel with a gravel road, I believe, but we did not notice any dust. Bathrooms were very clean and private for those using the facilities. We would stay there again. We were in a travel trailer.
