Extremely nice RV park. Two sewer hook-ups at all sites, good 50 amp, gravel pads were at least 100' long with about a 15' space between each rig. We did hear some interstate noise but that was due to a south wind. It would really be nice if each site had a picnic table though. Area was clean and sites were among mesquite trees and other trees have been planted. Rate was $30 a night but with Good Sam we paid $27 for one night. I checked out the laundry/BR area which contained 2 washers, 2 dryers along with 2 BR's each clean as a whistle. What impressed us though were the sites, all facing N/W, door side was shady all afternoon. Good Wi-Fi and cable TV. This park could also use a club house since it would be perfect for rallies. Owner could put a sign at the frontage road though saying park is a 1/4 of a mile mile down the road on the left. We didn't see the park sign right away nor the RV park since it's off the road, had to turn around down the road and skuffed up the back of our 40' rig. We will most definitely stay here again.
Passport America park, $12.50 a night per owner's sign on her check-in counter but she charged us $15.00 a night which was not the PA discount. I couldn't get it into her head that we would not be using 50 amp but she didn't seem to understand, she just saw we had a 40' MH with 2 A/C's on the roof so must have decided she should charge us more so I didn't argue with her. Park looks run down, tight squeeze trying to get around corners and into a site. Would probably not stay here again. It is definitely not a destination park. Bathrooms were clean but very antiquated.
This RV PORT HOME community I'd rate a 10 because the lovely homes in the park are very nice, well kept and manicured. As we walked around in the home area everyone was very out going and friendly and seemed to be happy living there. What a wonderful place to live and be with other RV'ers and have your rig covered at all times. I would highly recommend building here. Then there's the RV park portion in the middle of the park which I give a 3 because the RV sites are very unkempt outside your door. There are some concrete pads but most of the spaces are unlevel. We had to move 2x then jack up the front of our 40' MH to get level. Not all of the sites are 50 amp and a lot of sites have old electric, H20 and sewer connections. The RV park portion of the community needs to be element ed or revamped because it's an eyesore to the rest of the beautiful community. We would not stay in the RV park again except to look at the nice lots and homes that are available for purchase.
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 chose this park for two reasons only. It was close to Hwy 30 to Astoria, Seaside, Cannon Beach along Hwy 101. We also drove to Mt Saint Helen's and up the Columbia River east of Portland. A very rural setting, parked in a field with tall trees behind us where we could not get cell service, satellite service or tv service so we went to the thrift store in town and bought a couple of movies. We think the owner caters mostly to church groups since one was there in the RV section on the property. We never saw that area. We had H20/30 amp electric and drove to the bathhouse to shower which was clean even though there were a lot of grown-ups & kids using it. We saw no washer/dryer facilities. As you drive into the park you will cross a bridge over a creek. The nice owner, brought us a trash can and outdoor table. We parked here in a 40ft motor home for 2 nights at $30 a night which we thought was high.
We stayed in this park for 2 nights. When we went to register we were told we'd need to pay $2 extra for each of our 3 dogs for the 2 night stay, that adds up. Park was adequate, storage buildings and junked machinery around the area where we parked. Nice walking distance, gravel road, and asphalt in the car parking area to farmer's market on Sat and to walk the small town to shop. We also needed extra sewer hoses to connect to the sewer. Pictures on their web site do not show the park as we saw it. We camped here in a 40 ft motor home and had adequate space between each rig. We would have picked a different park in the area but they were all so overpriced. No washers/dryers. The park looked a little rundown. The place served it's purpose but I doubt we'd ever stay there again.
This has the best park owners we've ever encountered over 5 years of being on the road full-time. We wanted to stay longer so they let us move 3 different times. Our discounted rate was through Passport America. Saturday they have homemade sweet rolls if you get there by 9:00 a.m. River runs alongside the park and you can sit out by the river behind or in front of your rig if you're in a river site. Very family friendly. We would most definitely recommend this park and would go back again because the owners are so accommodating. I would have rated this park a 10 if it hadn't been for the dusty roads.
We were parked in a back in site for the month of June at a rate of $325, you pay electric, about 100' from I-5 with highway noise which finally shut down between 2:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m. We were never so happy to get out of there. Park grounds were manicured nicely but at each site out your door you will be in wet grass due to the underground sprinkler system. Office does not open til 9:00 a.m. then closes between 12:00 noon til 2:00 p.m. then closes at 5:00 p.m. which gives free loaders a chance to come into a site, stay for the night then get out of there before the office opened. There were some problems while we were there with on site residents, we saw police in and out a few times we were there. Good location to town and wonderful city dog park less than a 1/2 mile west of the RV park. We only saw park employees once, and that was in the a.m. when they were checking available sites. I doubt we would ever stay here again unless it was a one nighter.
This park is old and seems a little rundown. It could use some TLC but woman who owns it runs it by herself and one helper. Traffic noise from highway is not too bad, and quietens at night. There are dusty gravel roads throughout the park some pull-through sites, and some back-ins 30/50 amp. You can walk down a hill to see the river but to get there is a long walk down rickety stairs. We stayed here because we were waiting on another couple. I certainly would not call this a resort.
