Very nice park, certainly doesn't feel like you're in Los Angeles County. Trees, grass, impressive overlooks, quiet, very clean and well maintained. A fairly large percentage of permanent residents but their sites, while full of the usual "stuff," are clean. Quite expensive for an RV park but then again, not too many places to stay if you're heading through LA to get somewhere else.

Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. Sites are uneven gravel, patios are small, cracked and not in the right position for a bigger rig. Extra charges for both 30 and 50 amp. Mgmt claims they have cable TV, but don't believe it. It's nonexistent. Was initially told Passport/Escapees/Good Sam would be honored but, when arriving at the park late morning, was told that in order to get those discounts, we would have to leave and come back at 3 pm (mind you, the place was almost empty when we got here). When asked what that was all about, manager went on and on about supposed rules and regulations of the clubs. Basically, all non-existent nonsense and a poor excuse to charge full price. This place is definitely not worth what is charged, it's not even worth it at half price. We stayed overnight only because we were very tired, not willing to drive any longer and needed to rest. Didn't even bother levelling or putting out slides. Also, being so close to I-5, it remains noisy. Without a doubt, would not stay here again and don't recommend anyone else does either.

Pretty low-keyed park and not very crowded, at least not in August when it's fairly warm. You can choose your own site and management is pretty friendly. Clean and level gravel sites with some unusual sewer hook ups. Some sites have trees large enough to offer some shade. The usual trains but not so loud that it becomes an issue. Considering there are not a whole lot of RV parks (especially anything decent) on the I-5/99 corridor, this place is definitely acceptable to stay at.

Beautiful, spotless, brand new park (just opened Feb 06) off Hwy 99. Only drawbacks. Wi-Fi was not working properly, local stations were unavailable on cable TV and no shade of any sort. Could be just "new bugs" being worked out. $30 per night as opening rate. What a deal! Definitely the park of choice if you're in that area.

Considering the lack of RV parks on the I-5 corridor, this place is not too bad. Pull through sites, so for overnighters, no need to unhook. Gravel sites, a bit dusty, more permanent residents than preferred but still, decent to stay at going up or down the interstate. Shared utility boxes but management will make every attempt to only put one rig per box. Nice pool.

Very nice place. Would definitely stay here again. Nice sites with lots of trees for shade, nice pool, very friendly and helpful management and staff. Easy on/off I-5 and traffic noise is minimal. Would have given a higher rating but Wi-Fi is pretty "iffy." At some sites it works, at others, no. That seems to be par for the course at so many RV places so it's not surprising. Cable TV available but not many channels.

Emigrant Lake is truly a beautiful location. And, if you have some sort of motorcraft, even more so. I would have given this location a higher rating if it were not for the following: the current hosts, while quite friendly, did not seem to have much of a grasp or concern about this place, perhaps because this was their first time in such a position. It was very frustrating trying to get any assistance from them. During the summer, this place gets VERY crowded, especially with families and lots of kids. If you don't like noise, radios blasting at all hours or screaming kids, this is not the place for you. No cable, no TV at all with the antenna and definitely no wi-fi. This is a terraced location and some of the spots can be a might steep, so be forewarned. Check the sites first. Again, the lake and view is gorgeous (visible from all the sites) and you can't beat the price.

This is a lovely jewel of a park, located on the old historic highway at the entrance to the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. Quite small, no wifi or cable and poor cell phone service, but still a great place to stay. Trees, shade, privacy, quiet and a great place to be while visiting the Columbia River Gorge. Space #10 is the best. The guy in the office was extremely friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again. *CAUTION: DO NOT take exit 22 off I-84, unless you want to drive up a 10%, very winding grade. Exit 18 will take you a bit longer but a beautiful drive.

Would have given this park a higher rating if it had wifi reception and cable. They do have wifi at the office but the signal at the sites is way too low to be of any use. No cable and little or no TV reception, but that is really no big deal. Other than the above, this is a nice park and one I would definitely recommend. Very nice owners, decent sized sites (some overlook forested areas and are very private), 50 amp (great for A/C), well-cared for place. Easy on/off I-5 and yet no discernible noise (other than that distant "traffic echo"). About 8 miles north of Grants Pass.

The only reason this park was not rated higher was due to the lack of Wi-Fi at the sites and no pool onsite. Owner claimed Wi-Fi was available at the office but I didn't try it so really can't comment on it. Swimming is available on the Umpqua River, accessible from the day use park next door. Otherwise, this is the nicest park I have stayed at in the past 5 months. Gorgeous trees, meaning shade (especially nice when hot), very long big rig site, gravel and not too bad level-wise, paved concrete patio outside your door, very clean and well maintained park. The owner was great: very friendly and accommodating. Her and her staff will take you to your site and make sure all is OK with you and your rig. Very nice and welcomed customer service, which seems to be greatly lacking at so many parks these days. I would most definitely stay here again.

A very well kept park with nice landscaping, roomy pull thrus, great wi-fi (for a fee) and cable, clean laundry rooms with dryers that actually dry and a few pieces of exercise equipment. A fairly large park without much privacy so that may or may not be an issue for you. Has one of the best book trading areas I've seen. Plus free breakfasts on Saturday mornings.

115 sites, as stated in their literature, is very misleading. The majority of the park are monthly sites, park models and motorhomes. The pullthru sites are truly awful if you have a big rig (and even if you don't!). Very narrow, hard to maneuver, nothing but concrete and so tight you can't put your slides out on both sides, not to mention a total lack of privacy. What is nice about this park is if you can get one of the river sites. Lots of grass, large trees, shade and overlooking the Willamette River. BEWARE...these are "parallel parking" type sites and the road is not flat, so some difficulty leveling the rig. Also, they are water/electric only so good for a short stay. A bit outdated, with electric on one end and water on the other, so be sure to have long hoses and/or electrical cords or carry extensions. Site #1 is not used so if you can get site #2, you've got lots of room behind you. Despite all written above, having all that grass, shade and the river makes for a lovely spot to just kick back and let the world go by. Yes, there are the usual trains with their whistles but after awhile, you don't even pay attention to them.

Not happy about this park. Made reservations months in advance and was given a very tight sight, very difficult to back into and definitely not even close to being level. When asked for a different site, was told it was reserved for someone staying a week. Not only did that particular site stay empty while I was there, it was given to folks who had only made reservations the nite before and were only staying a day or two! It was impossible to get the rig level, despite adding boards, etc under the wheels. Management didn't care. Also, the cable was lousy. While a lot of channels, none very clear. While the location is great if you're going to Mt St Helens (a must see), I would not stay here again nor would I recommend it to anyone. I understand an RV park wanting to make money but not at the risk of ticking off its customers.

A very attractive facility, very clean and well-kept. Would have given it a higher rating but did not due to the following: 1. There is a charge for wifi and the service is horrendous. Don't even bother with it. Complained to the manager, called the company, but to no avail. 2. Requested a pull thru but was told they "reserve" them for late arrivals and those that don't disconnect. Yet, while I was there, spaces got filled with rigs staying 3+ nites and the rest remained empty. Got lousy excuses from mgmt regarding this. 3. Advertising states the park is quiet...it is not. Lots of road noise. Too bad, it's a beautiful place and would be much better if owners would see to the above.

While the roads in this park and sites were "tight" for a bigger rig, this place is definitely worth it. Located right on the Umpqua River, with lots of trees and shade, it's a very nice place to be...if you're looking for beauty and serenity, that is. Folks in the office very nice as well. They accept Passport America, so 1/2 off the nightly rate to boot. Nicest sites are on the lower terrace.

A lovely place to stay. Very quiet and serene, beautiful surroundings, deer, wild turkeys, clean and well-kept. Unfortunately, no wifi but that could be because of its valley location. Lower section of an attractive mobile home park, off 101 and down a winding, well-paved road. Very nice person in office as well.

Advertising claims larger RV sites overlook the Russian River and they charge for it. However, trees, weeds, etc., are very overgrown so in order to actually see the river, you have to bend over the fence. Sites were gravel but not enough and not flat, lots of dirt which turned muddy if wet. Inner roads quite narrow and difficult to maneuver with a larger rig. Older part of the park has some scruffy looking permanent residents but newer section is cleaner. Advertising also claims cable TV at the newer sites, yet there was no cable at all, just lots of wires sticking up in the air. Traffic from River Rd can get pretty obnoxious. Person in office was very nice but not very helpful. This park has lots of room for potential if the owner would only see this. Best part of the park were the volunteer hosts: very friendly and helpful. I would not stay here again.
