We stayed here one night on short notice. They were very helpful during our stay. Very good customer service. The park is extremely clean. Sites are nice, with grass and good hookups. Our site was nice and level. There is a large dog walking area down below the camp ground but you aren't supposed to let them off a leash. Still, that area is so secluded and away from everything else that it really isn't a problem.
The only reason we didn't give 5 stars is the internet didn't work well, they didn't have an enclosed area for the dogs to be off leash and the whole park is kind of small and cramped. Made it a bit difficult to get in and out of with our 40' MH and tow.
Overall a very clean and updated park with great service.
P.S. If you are going to cross the Columbia River into Washington then I highly suggest you don't do it on the Hood River bridge! This bridge was built in the 1920's I believe and it is VERY skinny. MHs and large trailers should NOT be going on it. The guy told us it was a bad idea but we could not turn around because of traffic and our tow. We were very lucky to have gotten across without scraping the side or losing our mirrors. According to the toll booth person, people lose mirrors there everyday. You can go up the road about 10 minutes from Hood River and there is a wider bridge. Wish we would have known.
We enjoyed our stay here. The owners and staff were all very pleasant and helpful. They were completely full each time we have been here but the park is still quiet other than the train that passes through occasionally (I personally find that sound comforting). The proximity to the River was a plus and there's easy travel to area attractions like the Bonneville Dam, the Dalles, hiking trails, fishing and the restaurants in the town nearby. There's a convenience store next store that carries most things you would need and the office sold some RV supplies. The bathrooms and laundry room were above average. We saw eagles nesting in a tree across the road - very nice ! The sites are close but adequate for our slides and awning with space. We would definitely stay here again.
Don't know how this park rates a 10 as indicated on their website. Our siite was uphill, not enough blocks to drive up on. They failed to mention the train that goes by just below the park, very loud. The road from I-84 goes across a bridge that costs $4 in toll and is so narrow the toll taker recommended I fold in mirrors. The reckless truck driver coming at me in my lane caused me to pull over as far as I could and stop, praying he would not hit me as he recklessly sped by over the 25 mph speed limit. I don't know how we didn't get hit. This kind of stress a person does not need after driving all day.
This is a nice clean park and seems to be the only one close to Hood River, Oregon. The park hosts were fabulous and very helpful. I do not recommend going over the Hood River bridge with your trailer if you can avoid it. It is very narrow. There are 2 other wider bridges to the east and west that are better! It is a little noisy due to proximity to the train tracks and a busy road. Our campsite was very nice with a great grassy area to spread out to.
Great staff very helpful. Nice little park close to the Columbia River Bridge for easy access to Hood River Oregon..very narrow bridge don't recommend taking RV's across. Recommend going to the Bridge of the Gods or the Dalles Bridge. Space's were nice but tight. Right off Highway and have trains runs thru back of park. We had a wonderful stay and will return next year. Highly recommend you make Reservations early as they do fill up.
Great little park! We stayed for one night to explore the area. The park is well maintained, sites and roads are paved. It is close to the road and the train tracks, but we weren't bothered by the noise. I highly recommend following the directions on their website and not your GPS. The Hood river bridge is very narrow and would have been a "nail biter" in the RV.
