Very noisy as it is directly under Portland International Airport flight path. There is constant jet noise 24/7 making it difficult to sleep or carry on a conversation. It is situated in a large mobile home community. It is clean and the staff friendly also the hookups are good. If you don’t mind the noise factor it is fine for a day or two.

Don't let the name fool you - there is no beach - in fact you can't see any water. There are a lot of stores - big box and places to eat on island. The only access - on or off is onto I-5 which at times can be backed up. One evening it took us an hour and 10 minutes to drive 1.7 miles to the entrance ramp to the island. It is also in the take off flight path of Portland International Airport and the planes are very loud - add the 9:00am flights of the military jets and you really have some noise. There is also a train that runs 24/7 and loud freighter horn noises. The park itself is quiet but the rest is pretty loud. The park is a mix of mobile homes and RV sites. There is a pool and playground area. The sites are pretty narrow and some you are almost touching your neighbors slide. We were in Site 827, a back in with full hook ups. There were no issues with any of the hookups. The site was very short - we have a 37 foot Class A with a tow dolly. The tow dolly was pushed under the back of the RV and we had to park in the overflow a few sites away. There was a picnic table on our site - some didn't have them. We were right across from the maintenance shed and the garbage dumpsters, at one point there were eight very full dumpsters for three days and we could smell them inside our RV. There were also a number of homeless people going through the dumpsters early mornings and late evenings. We stayed August 25-Sept 1, 2017 and paid $28.43 a night with our Good Sam discount. WiFi was very weak and our Verizon signal was

Anything more than 2 stars here is a marketing ploy... Planes, trains and automobiles. 5:00 AM sharp every morning - fighter planes, commercial planes, a train nearby and every loud exhaust in town. This park is joined by a sketchy trailer park in the middle of a "rough" neighborhood. Sites are back to back and I am literally 2 inches from my neighbor to the rear - window to window. There's not enough room to park an RV and a car and I"m right next to a tree so no awning. They do have cable TV - 10 stations and 8 of them are either PBS or infomercial stations. Wifi is a joke. The only bright spot here is the staff. They seem nice.

Janzen Beach RV Park, Portland OR. Just over the border from Washington and easy to get to, this park had a lot to offer. The sites were all paved with trees and other plants as well as stone walls. The pool was large, warm (it was in the 50s outside in the morning), and very clean. WIFI, was better than most. The issues we had were that the bathroom entry was by a card reader and we only had one card, so we had to travel as a group to shower or the bathroom if needed. While everything was clean and looked well tended, the showers were dirty (the grout). Over all, a nice over night stay if you don't mind the constant roar of jet engines taking off from the Portland airport.

No way this place is the quiet retreat their website advertises. A busy international airport is literally next door. Military jets taking off, trains starting up. The RV Park is set within a trailer park of permanent residents. Not necessarily high end trailers either. Therefore there is a lot of traffic. Women's showers have no place to place your stuff and only one hook; your stuff goes on the floor. I found the bathrooms messy. There should be security being so close to a major city. There isn't. Not even something to hang in your car to show you belong there. So we did not feel safe leaving our stuff out though we did rather than put it away every day. Just didn't feel secure. RV part of the facility had clean grounds. Hookups were easy. Good cable connection. People in the office were very nice. We're very disappointed. Committed to 9 nights unfortunately and didn't want to waste a day moving to another park.

We stayed here for a week, and found it to be quite pleasant. The laundry facilities were very clean and everything was working well. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The park was rather large and pretty full, although it was clean and well attended to. Most folks seem to be permanent residents. Security was tight, although Portland and Hayden Island need to do something about the number of homeless people camping out all around; throughout the city and not just on Hayden Island. We definitely plan to come back and stay at this RV park!

The Desk staff were very helpful. We had no complaints with them. Our complaint is with the campers parked on the other side of the hedge row. We were parked right next to the hedge. The person(s) in the motor home (Class C) ran his generator all day and half the night. At 11:00pm he decided to play his music loudly for about 2 hours and then again during the day. Making it hard for sleeping or just sitting outside during the day. The 5th wheel parked there also appeared to be dumping his gray water down the storm drain. It appears that they have both been there for awhile. Informed the campground we would be leaving a day earlier then planned due to this. Gave us a credit to use at the campground another time. (This won't be happening) Can't be the first time someone complained of this. If you do go here make sure you ask to be somewhere other then by the hedge row in the front. There are more spaces for people living in their RV's then for one night or weekends. There is road noise and airplane noise but at night it slows down. Pet Friendly and again no complaint with the desk staff.

A 10 is not accurate for the restrooms, they are clean but not a 10, more like a 7. Easy access to downtown and shopping, but the island is littered with homeless. The first thing out of a neighbors mouth was to lock up everything. It is also more of an extended stay place, with an attached mobile home park and "long term" area, my neighbor had been here for 2 years...and you could tell many others weren't far behind. The grounds are very nice and well maintained, and the best pool iv'e seen so far at a park.

Not what we expected at all! This is more of a full time resident park. There is a trailer park adjoining. Bathrooms are not well maintained- showers are disgusting! Trash in our site when we arrived- no trees, sites with trees are taken by full time residents. We were looking for more if an RV resort- this is not that! Very surprised the rating was so high for them!

Enjoyed just the one night. A very busy area North of town, but there are plenty of businesses in the area. Eat at Island Cafe. The park is huge, surrounded by manufactured homes, business park, big box stores and condos. I'd say there are 200 spaces. Many of them look long term but those are well kept. Full hook up, but never figured out the cable in space #934. Al I could get was a few community service tv stations. Spaces are nice and wide for an extra vehicle. You'll here the train and the fog horn when the drawbridge goes up. Check-in smooth.

Located next to the Jantzen Beach mall so there is quite a bit of road noise, and train noise from near by tracks. There are a large number of permanent residents and the park has that "feel" to it. The wifi and cable didn't work for us and we were glad to move on the next day. Next time in Portland, we will look for a different park.

We stayed for 3 nights and were quite satisfied. The restroom and other facilities were very nice and clean. We spent our days and evenings away from the RV park, so we didn't take advantage of facilities other than the showers. We would stay here again. The only negative was the wifi connection. It seems that it is simply not adequate to support the demand. Much of the time I couldn't connect to it at all and if I could connect, the connection was often dropped. (We found this to be true at all but one of the RV Parks we visited on this road trip.)

Conveniently located and easy on-and-off from Interstate 5, with good selection of food and retail services nearby. Plenty of pool area for the grand kids. That was important for us. The paved roads inside the part are flat and fairly easy to maneuver. Just stayed one night, but would not hesitate staying longer. Jet noise from Portland International may be a factor for some folks.

Jantzen Beach was an excellent location for our needs for this trip. The convention center, local shopping and relatives were all within reach of the RV park. Be prepared to reside in a busy industrial, urban setting as "trains, planes and automobiles" are constant. A small price to pay for the convenient, clean, hospitable and useful RV park.
