Island Cove Park, Portland, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We did not stay here. We didn't have reservations, called and spoke to on-site manager who was very helpful and had a couple of open sites. We pulled in and were somewhat put off. Appears mostly long term residents, some sites were junky and on lawn area. The premium sites were cleaner with newer units on concrete pads but none available when we needed to stay. We were not willing to stay in the lower cost area, it is not our style of camping. Cash only at this park if you intend to stay: we were quoted $30/night. We camped at Island Cove Park in a Travel Trailer.

Reeder Beach Resort, Portland, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Very unusual campground, it is a working ranch/farm with chickens and geese near front entry, very quaint. Has small general store on-site, which is convenient. They do not take credit cards, bring cash! Fire rings available at river edge but somewhat too close to other sites. We stayed in site #20 which had hook ups on wrong side so we pulled through and faced next door neighbors, who ended up being delightful. Appears high percentage of sites are occupied by seasonal or long-term residents. Park is overall very quiet and didn't see many residents coming and going. Reservations are hard to get but worth it. We were river side and got to watch the big ships go by. They do go by throughout the night which was not an issue for us. Restrooms were very old but still serviceable, they were somewhat clean. No gas on Sauvie Island so keep the tank full. Lots of veggie/fruit stands on the island, bring cash! When departing the campground and island, be very sure of directions to exit island as we took wrong turn and did not find turn around for about 10 miles and it was very tight (did a least a 10 point turn to turn around). We stayed here to tour Portland and surrounding area, stayed in the park one day just to enjoy waterfront and peaceful surroundings. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Reeder Beach Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA, Cascade Locks, Oregon

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Park was clean and well kept. Restrooms, laundry facilities and pool/hot pool were older but very clean and kept clean all day. Pool/hot pool were covered every night. Park hosts (possibly at least 3 working couples) were visible quite a bit of the time, good feeling of security. Free WiFi but not secure (no password required). Campfires allowed, fire ring in each site. Stayed in space #78, which was more than adequate. It was adjacent to urban street which overall was very quiet and had a landscaped barrier so not visible. Maneuvering into space was a bit tight as most of these sites (76-87) had a demarcation tree or large boulder at both sides of site front. We had an occupied pull-through site across from our site, so many back-and-forths to get the trailer into the site. Park does have many pull throughs, most are on asphalt, sites 76-91 (and possibly others, didn't take notes on other part of RV Park), are on grass. Could hear train that runs on opposite side of RV Park, it was never an issue. Park is very well treed (but trimmed high) but during shoulder season or colder summer you will want sites toward Forest Lane and not deep into the park, for some sun. Cascade Locks area during parts of shoulder season will be overcast in the morning, in fact the morning mist on the local hills was very beautiful. We traveled to Hood River most often and gained a minimum 5 to 10 degrees in weather. KOA was very convenient for our Columbia River visit. We would utilize this park again. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Gig Harbor RV Resort, Gig Harbor, Washington

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Park was clean and well kept, few seasonal/year round sites were obvious. Nice RV Park attendants, helpful/pleasant. FHU, electrical good. Free WiFi only in clubhouse/lounge area but worked well. Restrooms very clean, closed for cleaning at odd 8-9 AM, right when you would want a shower. Park posts open sites with rules/data sheets after hours on bulletin board, so very traveler friendly. Spaces are a wee bit close together. We stayed in #47, no shade trees but didn't need it in June. Park is tiered and a bit on a slope, bring your leveling boards. Did hear a gun range on first afternoon, but not thereafter. No campfires allowed. Too cold to use the pool which was a bit dirty on the bottom. Stayed here to visit Tacoma art museums, otherwise would not seek this park as destination, yet it was more than adequate. We camped at Gig Harbor RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Lone Fir Resort, Cougar, Washington

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

Under new owner-manager. This was our second stay, first was in 2009. We really like this campground. Has restaurant, pool, laundry, facilities for big gatherings, small motel and cabins in addition to 38 RV sites. New owners very helpful. Park amenities are older but kept up. Restrooms are supposed to be remodeled in the near future (they need it). We got site up a small road at the back end of the park, nice and quiet which we appreciated. Nice shade as well. Some of the sites in the main campground area do not have shade trees. Wi-Fi only available in office, restaurant and club house but worked great. There are many lakes nearby as well as Gifford Pinchot National Forest to explore. We will stay here again. We camped at Lone Fir Resort in a Travel Trailer.
