The Park is not set up for Big Rigs the spacing is very tight, you will need to unhook to make the turns. Be sure to stop your engine at check-in the manager will get in your face if you forget. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice RV Park. People in the office are friendly. Well maintained. Restrooms are very chilly but clean. The only complaint is that you have to arrive during business hours if you want to rent a cable box. They are closed on Sunday's. If you are not there, when they are, you only get a few channels. Overall a nice place & close to shopping. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
I have stayed at the highly rated CG to the south of this one,but decided to stay here again. The place is a bit tight in places,but you shouldn't have any problems and the rule about driving on the grass is because several folks have parked their toads and ATVs on the grass and not on the pavement. They don't really say anything about the dogs going where ever they want, but I never saw any poo anywhere in the park and that's a change. I asked for a satellite TV site and the reception was great,as was the Wi-Fi. The restrooms were clean and warm. I will be using this CG again whenever I visit Portland. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I wanted to comment about the rules here. The manager is strict about not driving or parking on the grass but you cannot get into or out of the sites with a big rig or even a medium rig without going onto the grass. They definitely need to widen the paved parking area and broaden the approaches and exits to the sites. The other comment is about the rules that other people have complained about. It is interesting that currently there is a tent trailer and a Volkswagen camper van in the park so their rules about no soft sided RVs or vans must be arbitrarily enforced. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects weekly rate of $249/week. The RV park is very nice and very well maintained. Every site has green grass, a nice large shade tree, a clean picnic table, full hook-ups, free basic cable and free Wi-Fi. The staff has been very friendly and welcoming as well. They allow dogs, but there are plenty of signs stating, “no wetting, no waste” in a variety of areas. The Tualatin River borders the back-end of the park, and there is a two-mile nature trail adjacent to the RV Park. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park does not have a lot of amenities, but it is super clean, green, tall trees and in an area with a lot to see and do. There is a nice rural park next door, with a walking path on the Tualatin River and a nice shopping center within close walking distance. There are some sharp turns for big rigs, yet the place is filled with big rigs. We are 41'. All the big rig sites are pull throughs and the park is worth the tight turns to stay here. This will be our stop when we are in Portland. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price show is for a standard pull-through with Good Sam discount. It’s odd that they itemize the price, $2 per person for cable TV and $4 per person for electric, which is included in the $38. Most of the sites need some leveling, grass areas with picnic tables and most with shade. Park is kept in immaculate condition, restrooms and showers were clean, Wifi and cable TV worked fine. Narrow asphalt roads with tight turns. They have a very extensive list of Rules. You are screened at the check-in (quote: modern, well maintained, full self-contained, hard-sided RV, no exceptions). So if you don’t mind the ‘additional’ rules, strictly enforced by park removal, well then this place will be great for you. Quiet at night, and the staff was helpful with questions about the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here ten days and loved it. It's beautiful, with evergreens that must be fifty feet tall. The only thing I didn't like is that they are not very pet friendly. They do allow dogs, but they have signs all over the place saying essentially "don't let your dog pee here," and once an employee asked me to not let my dog urinate on a grassy place next to the road. Weird. But it's not a problem, because adjacent to the park are several miles of well maintained trails that run along the river. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I must have arrived at the wrong time. I was turned away by the manager/owner? " after the desk clerk was already checking me in. I was in a new 2011 Chevrolet conversion van that I purchased in March and had the interior custom designed. But manager/owner said that vans weren’t allowed. It was obvious that she made the rule up on the spot. To say the least, I was very surprised, but I was polite and left. This is the only RV Park I've ever been turned away from. Heck, I've even stayed in Napa and Malibu, CA, without a problem. I’m not sure what makes this RV park so special, but whatever it is all I know for sure is that management seems to discriminate or have discriminating tastes. Depending on your point of view. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very well maintained, quiet campground. Owners very helpful & friendly. Sites are long & level, with a nice large grass buffer between sites, however the pads are narrow & most larger vehicles will go on the grass to maneuver into/outof the site. Street turns can also be tight, but doable for a 40' MH with tow. All utilities worked well, FHU/50amps. Basic cable TV. Washing RV & cars is encouraged - wish more places did this - it makes the whole campground look cleaner & neater. Wonderful town walking/biking trail on the side of the campground. Easy access to local attractions & shopping. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We like the location of this park a lot. The managers are very friendly and helpful as well. The big negative is the narrow parking pads and narrow streets. They have several sites closed because people have made huge ruts in the grass when pulling in or out of the site. Also it rains a lot in the Portland area and even with grass you get mud on your shoes which gets tracked into the rigs. The pads have huge mud puddles which makes it hard to get into your rig or your toad. They definitely need to widen the roads, flare the approaches and exits to the sites and widen the pavement on the pads so that you can get in and out without going on the grass. I don't know why they aren't doing this since they are loosing money by having some sites closed off. If you happen to come here when it is dry then my major complaint isn't an issue. We would come again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We're really enjoying our stay here. Kid and dog friendly. Staff is nice and extra helpful. The homemade cookies were a nice touch. Park is bright, clean, and beautifully maintained. A decent sized grass area and picnic table are at every site. Many mature shade trees throughout. Facilities are not brand new, but are well kept and spotlessly clean. Miles of walking trails along the river,good restaurants and shopping nearby. Especially appreciated booming Wi-Fi throughout the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is a short drive south of Portland just off I-5 but near some nice restaurants and shopping. The office is closed on Sunday but they do have sites/handouts available outside the office. The park is well maintained but the parking pads are narrow as is the roads to your site. They have free WiFi which was fairly strong at our site. Their cable TV is mostly local with a few shopping channels, so we just used our satellite. The weather was wet and very cold (in the teens) while we were here, it even snowed. We ran low on propane and a local propane truck arrived Friday morning and delivered propane to those who needed it. We will probably stay here again since it is the best location for us. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access off freeway. As stated, it is an older park, but exceptionally well maintained. Interior roads are very narrow, but no problem getting my 40-footer in to my site. Sites are level, and a nice grass/picnic area between sites. Park is pet friendly, and has a dog run, and other places to walk your dogs on the park perimeter. However they are very strict about requiring your dog to be on a leash when out of the RV, which in general I would agree with. One of our two small dogs is an 18 year old Yorkie who is blind, deaf and can hardly walk. I put him down on the grass beside the motorhome and he immediately does his business. (It's okay to walk them on the grass area beside your RV, but they MUST be leashed.) But one of the park employees was adamant that our old guy must be on a leash. I explained his condition, but he was inflexible. I thought in this dog's case it was ridiculous. Lots of close by stores. It is an urban setting, but very quiet. We have stayed at other parks in the area, and our opinion is that this park is far better. We will be back! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with long, roomy sites. It's quiet and well-maintained and well enough insulated from the immediate surroundings to avoid the urban park feel. The staff is friendly but not too willing to go out of their way to fix a customer issue. When we made our reservation, we had asked for a satellite friendly site and they put us in a site directly behind a tree that blocked the signal. The empty site right next to us would have been fine but it was apparently too much trouble to make the change. It wasn't a major problem however, and we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Have stayed here before when visiting Portland and will probably stay here again. Of all the CGs we've stayed at here, this seems to be the handiest, friendliest, etc. Yes, some of the roads can be a tad bit tight, but if you're careful, you're OK. It is quiet, green, has a shopping center within easy distance on both sides of the freeway and is easy on and off OK. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 7 weeks. The park is clean and well maintained. Although it is 40 years old it has been well cared for. The staff is friendly and eager to please. The bathrooms, showers and laundry are clean. The park is on the banks of the Tualatin River. A boardwalk at the edge of the campground leads to a city park. There are canoes and kayak rentals at the park in the summer. The campground is close to groceries, restaurants and other services. This place is rated 4W by Woodall's. If it had a pool it would be a 5W. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is pretty urban. It is surrounded by condos and a 7-11. We were just passing through and needed a place to stop. If you are visiting the Portland area or need a place to sleep, this is a good place though. Although its urban, the upside is that it is close to stores and groceries. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and efficient. There are trees and shade. There's some grass and a picnic table. The hookups were in good condition. The sites are a decent size, but the access roads are fairly narrow, making it a little hard to go wide and turn into the pull-through sites. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Best park in the south part of Portland. This is where we always stay. Easy access off I-5, near I-205, close to shopping, restaurants, and gas. Hiking/biking trail right next door. Well maintained park. Narrow paved roads and sites, some not level front to back. Almost all pull-throughs, capable of parking my 45' truck-trailer rig. Front half of park is for transients, where it is noisier, back half is mostly full of permanent residents, but no junk. They are very serious about speeding, and have aggressive speed bumps on access and egress roads. Very helpful and friendly staff. On a previous trip, I had a medical emergency (did I mention there is a hospital within a mile able to zap kidney stones?) and the staff was able to extend our stay for four extra days. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
To get the negatives out of the way first. The parking pads are narrow. They need to be widened. Some sites are not level front to back but are fine for trailers and fifth wheels which can be lowered at the front end. The monthly rate in the summer is about $400 higher than in the winter. Now to the good stuff. We have been here three years in a row and love this park. We are full timers and come back every year to see friends, family and our doctors. We treat this as our home base. The management and office staff are about the most friendly people that we have ever come across. They will go out of their way to help make your stay a pleasant one. The park just has a friendly, comfortable feel to it. The location is perfect for staying in the Portland area. There are lots of shopping and services available nearby. We did not have to sign a 4 page lease agreement to spend a month here like we did at that park in Fairview! We don't get kicked out one day a month like in that park in Wilsonville either. Oh, by the way, they even have beveled leveling boards available for free if you need them. We will definitely return next year. We camped here in a Motorhome.
PROS: Nice Location, Beautiful Surroundings, Nice Staff, 50 amps, paved roads, large grass pads between sites. CONS: $7.00 for Internet, Road noise if you're in the front half of the park, (nothing ear plugs can't help), very narrow roads and pads, as mentioned in a previous post, doable, just very tight, plan on unhooking your car for sure. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the second time we have stayed here. As others have said, detraction's are narrow access roads and narrow pads, although this time, no rain, no mud, but no guarantees in Portland! Great access to all the Portland metro area, wonderful walking trail next to the park into a regional park. Nice off leash dog area in the back of the property. The $37 rate reflects the Good Sam discount, but the added $7.95 per day for Wi-Fi makes this overpriced, IMO, and cost my rating a full point. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed here last fall and decided to try it again and we weren't disappointed. The park was almost full,but they finished cleaning a site a long termer had used all winter so we could use it.Yes,some of the turns are tight,but a good driver shouldn't have any trouble. All the full timers are very neat and the place is quiet..Will probably be here later this summer with a group. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here twice in last 3 months. Please be aware of surroundings. There is a pervert with access to office information. We received obscene and perverted phone calls on cell phone during both visits. The cell phone number was only available to 90 yr old parents and RV office. It's a shame. The location is great but will never return to this place again. The office management is poor with no computer records. There is no communication between staff regarding reservations. One staff member is very hostile. We stayed here 12 days in September and 7 days in December. This is only bad review I have ever given. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We liked this park, it was the perfect location for our visit to Portland. It is clean and well maintained. The freeway is a couple of blocks from the resort which made it easy to head north to Portland or Beaverton. The roads to your site was narrow we had to unhook in order to make the turns to our site. If you want WiFi at your site there is a charge but the service was good. There does seem to be a lot of rigs that stay extended period of time, we were told many stay to be near the hospital for medical reasons. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice RV park near to Portland. It has long pull throughs with paved sites. The higher numbered sites are shaded by huge fir trees and the lower numbered sites are good for those who need satellite access. I would have rated it a 10 except for the width of the paving since most rigs now have slideouts. This makes you walk on the grass which is always wet. We will definitely return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Most sites are pull through, however we were in last row which is tight back in. Not to worry! Friendly manager directed our backing in. We liked being close to fenced dog area, since we have two small dogs and also were adjacent to river walk (boardwalk which leads to a park). A short walk to many stores: Starbucks, Panera (fantastic bakery), restaurants, convenience stores, fast food, Fred Meyers, Pet Smart, Best Buy. Right off freeway, but very quiet park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is about eleven miles from Portland. The length of the sites is very long and can accommodate a large Class A without disconnecting the toad. However, the sites are narrow - under 11 feet wide thus making it difficult to step out of your rig without stepping on the grass. The park "streets" are also 11 feet wide. Although the streets are one way, it is still tricky driving through the park. It is tight! Bathrooms are absolutely spotless and have plenty of hot water. There are no amenities (e.g., clubhouse, pool) - just a spot to park. In the summer, we heard that the ratio of "dailies" to permanent long term is about 50-50. During the winter, the ratio may be higher. If you like to walk, there are walking paths right outside the park, shopping malls within a mile and direct bus service into Portland. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had two families visit us while staying here, and they both commented on how nice the park is. We agree! We will definitely be back! The staff was friendly AND funny. Cute signs around the park. As you left there were reminders not to forget your BBQ, your antenna, or even your spouse. Very nice large sites, clean and well maintained. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here for 5 nites and it was one of the most restful places I've stayed.It is shady with wide green sites and quiet.Yes,the roads are a bit tite,but if you're any good,you shouldn't have any trouble.Yes,the wifi is spotty,but who cares,I don't rate a park on wifi.It is one of the best parks in the area and handiest to everything and we have stayed in all the major ones.Yes,they have rules,but they were made by the people who work here,workcampers and the dog rules are stringent,but for a reason. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is the one of the cleanest and neatest RV parks we've ever visited. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Free coffee and cookies and daily newspaper in the office is a nice plus. Roads are a little tight and our site (#23) was a little short for us and our tow car. It would work better for a motorhome of about 42' long. We were in a 45' motorhome. The location is very convenient to all kinds of shopping and very close to I-5. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large park that is easily accessible from the I-5. Large grassy and treed sites. Washrooms and laundry room were maintained to a high level. Wi-Fi is good, but expensive @ $7.00/day. Office closes at 6pm. No store on site, but there is a 7-11 and other businesses just across the busy street. Nice walking path just off the property that follows the river. Definitely big rig friendly. Almost all seniors staying there. No one left their rigs. No one sat outside in the evening. We don't have kids, but if you do, don't stay here because there is nothing for them to do. There is no pool, no hot tub, not even a park to play in. Lots of rules and lots of signs posted telling you what you can't do. They allow pets, but judging from the rules and signs, they would rather not. For example, they have a rule that says you cannot let your dog urinate on the grass of another site unless you have the permission of that site's occupant. Don't get me wrong, I always pick up after my pet and have no tolerance for people who don't, but try to explain to a dog that he can't lift his leg and even pee on a tree at the edge of someone's site? Please!!! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice park and the staff is quite helpful. It is convenient to I-5 and shopping. An extremely nice walking trail adjoins the park. Our water-heater went out and the showers were immaculate. We were situated under a tree and had difficulty with our satellite dome reception, but they provide cable. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Howdy neighbor. What a wonderful park. Located at the Southern end of the I-205 and I-5, real close to Portland and all kinds of shopping centers. The staff was wonderful, very helpful in directing you to your destination. The park has a gang of BIG trees that give you plenty of shade. They don't mind if you clean your rig in your space. The Wi-Fi was kind of miss and hit (other wise it would have been a 10). Almost all sites were pull-thru's. Cable TV with 71 channels. The restrooms were handicap accessible. Nice nature walk next door. This was a really wonderful park. Happy motoring. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Well maintained RV Park. Lawn, big trees (but many spaces where satellite reception is OK). Reasonably close to the freeway, but far enough away that it's reasonably quiet (some street noise from a nearby busy street -- but generally quiet). Seems to have a fair number of long-term tenants, mostly at the back of the park. Cable TV has about 70 channels -- better than most parks I've been in. WiFi has been quite good and is (now) free. The interior roads and sites are asphalt paved. It was difficult to maneuver our 43' rig (toad unhooked at the office) as the roads are quite tight. There's a city-owned walking path that leads into a small park that passes next to the property -- makes a nice morning or evening walk. We stayed for a week (reflected in the daily rate). We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very well maintained park. Tight roads, but we were able to negotiate them even with our 55+ foot rig. Sites are 60' max. Laundry and restrooms were clean. Staff is extremely helpful, even recommended an area dentist when we needed one. It's definitely a city rv park, next to apartments (though still quiet); across the street from a 7-11 and a McDonalds. We walked to Panera Bread for breakfast and free wi-fi, instead of the $6.95/day at the park. All sites have grass, and trees are throughout the park. Close to downtown Portland for day trips to tourist attractions. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice, roomy sites. Some sites were somewhat difficult to level a long rig on. Dog walk at the far north end of the park which was a long walk even if I thought I needed it. Good cable TV and some sites were satellite friendly. Owners/staff keep the park well groomed and the long term spaces were well kept up. WiFi is available, but at $6.95 it is far too high. Panera Bread and Starbucks are but a very short drive for free WiFi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The RV Park of Portland is south of Portland a few miles. There is Camping World fairly close. The park is in a residential area with apartment complexes on each site. The park is full of permanent guests. I have a 45' rig, and the park is not designed for big rigs. It is very hard to get around the park. The staff was nice and friendly, but with the difficulty that I had maneuvering, I don't think that I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good park. Great location and clean surroundings. Feels like a mountain retreat but right in the middle of community. Very good neighborhood and lots of shopping. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great park! Although it is about 10 miles outside the city of Portland, access to and from downtown is easy on I-5. The RV park is very clean, well maintained with beautiful trees. The restrooms were clean, showers were hot and water pressure was quite good. The park is far enough from the interstate so that you get no road noise. There is a great hiking path that goes right by the park and winds back through the neighborhoods. The surrounding area is nice, feels safe, and you are close to grocery stores, malls, Whole Foods, movie cinema, and restaurants. The owners of the park watch you carefully and will correct you if you are not following the rules (for instance, we had put our mat out on the grass, which is not allowed. When we returned they had moved the mat to underneath our camper). But we are happy to comply and they were not snippy about it at all. They obviously take very good care of their park, so following the rules is worth it. We would definitely camp here again! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Wonderful park, very close to the city, but yet quite rural and relaxing. The managers very accommodating and helpful, make you feel very welcome. Have been back a few times now, and will continue to stop there. Very handy on stops down the I-5 south from Vancouver. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is in an excellent location. You can walk to shopping, restaurants a supermarket. You can also walk along the river on marked trail. The staff was friendly and helpful. Access in and out was easy. I would recommend this place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We love this place! Great customer service. When we couldn't get our satellite to work because of a tree, they had no problem letting us move to a different site. We love to take long walks and there are lots of places to walk to from this park. Besides the hiking trail along the Tualatin River which goes through a park, we walked to restaurants, our bank, a post office and more. It's a quick drive to Lake Oswego and Tigard, where we shopped at Whole Foods, saw a movie and ate at great restaurants. We stayed 2 weeks. We will definitely stay here when we return to the Portland area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful park with many large grassy sites. They don't reserve specific sites upon request, the people here are extremely strict with their rules and policies. Even the RV's close by came over and made us feel very unwelcome for menial things. We were very polite, quiet, respectful and empathetic of other campers. Its as though they were sitting here watching us, then running over to boss us around. It felt more like a retirement park, and has been the butt of our jokes ever since camping here. I got reprimanded 3 times within the first couple hours of pulling in. I am a middle aged female alone with my dog, until my husband and other RV friends showed up later that night. They soon got scolded also. They do allow dogs (any size) and have a wonderful bridge trail and park along the river. Very fun place, however the campers and employees just REALLY need to lighten up and learn to have fun! Overall great place. Largest downfall: you have to pay $6 day for internet. That in today's world is totally ridiculous. Because of that, we often stay at other beautiful parks in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed one night at the RV campground. Lots of pull through sites. It was very quiet and there was a little path by the river where we could take the dogs out for a walk. The showers and washrooms were very clean. I was very impressed with the tidiness and cleanliness of the entire campground. The staff were very nice and helpful. This is a Good Sam campground. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Nice, clean park with good-sized spaces. Easy access in and out. Lots of shade and grass. Nearby, there's a nice trail along the Tualatin River. Friendly neighbors for the most part. Good customer service. If you need to stay in or near the south side of Portland, this is a very good park. Especially if you need to be near the hospital. Easy access to I-5, without the noise of the freeway. A main thoroughfare to a nearby hospital runs right outside the park, though, so street and ambulance noise can be heard. I'd stay here again if I needed to be in Portland, Oregon. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is for water/electric site only. Full Hookups slightly more. Wifi is $7/day. Sites are gravel/grass and quite level. Internal streets are paved. Mature trees make satellite iffy. It's an older park - bigger rigs may have trouble maneuvering. Seems like lots of long-term folks, but we were there just one night, so hard to tell. Staff friendly and eager to help. Location is excellent if you need to be in south Portland area. We'll stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wonderful park to stay at. Tualatin River runs past the end of the park with a beautiful paved, handicap accessable nature walk with your own private entrance starting at the park also. Large pull thru site accommodated our Big-Rig and toad with ease. Friendly, caring staff and lots of trees and grass! We camped here in a Motorhome.
