We found this little gem when our tow vehicle broke down. Fairly new park, only 10 sites and she was full all 6 nights we were there. We had to move while we were there to accommodate previous reservations, but the owner, was there helping every step and actually moving our trailer with her pickup. She was so friendly and caring for all of her guests. We will definitely be back. - Quilter52

This is a relatively new park, gravel roadway with small grass area on the sides of a few sites around the perimeter. Sites are really tight and roadway difficult to maneuver, but we made it work. It's not a bad park for a couple nights if your traveling through. Has a bar/grill onsite and the food was pretty good. Declare 50amp if that's what you need, there aren't many. Owner is super friendly and she was anxious to assist with everything we needed. - Jackie thornton

Nice little State Park, fairly level sites, #8 is the largest, but most can handle large RVs w/ a little careful parking; everyone used their slides, but were warned not to leave awnings out when away due to wind. Water was cloudy but cleared up fine. Camp host was great. Very glad that other reviewers warned to go to the Horse Thief Lake entrance as there are several park entrances. Lewis and Clark camped here. Guided tours of Petrographs are only on weekends. - BandD

This is a great small park. It is right by the lake. The problem is that the wind is very very windy so you can't put your awnings out. We had a hell of a time finding this park because there is three Columbia River Parks. You want the Horsethief Lake Park. - Kwanyen

The sites are back in only, If you are skilled at operating your vehicle that should not be a problem. If you are not, you will probably hit the tall concrete divider pillars and damage your rig. The sites are close together, if you had slides this could also present an issue. For my stay the issue was the wind and the neighboring fire ring. The fire ring was located at the front tire of my rig, and the wind easily pushed it too close to the rubber. Had I not been paying attention, this could have resulted in severe damage to my rig. The main issue is space. Noise, and parking were also issues. This is no fault of the campground, but the layout is not conducive for silence or for space. I drive a 36 foot rig which is 8'9" wide and 12'8" tall.
The camp host was friendly, and very helpful. The petroglyphs are within walking distance, and the lake is quite beautiful. The grounds are well kept, and the grass is trimmed. The anthropological history alone is well worth a one or two day stay. I would have liked to arrange a guided tour of the glyphs, but was unable to due to time constraints.
This makes a good base camp, but not somewhere to hang out and spend the day. Other than the lake, there is not much there. The glyphs are about 1/4 mile down the road, and Horsethief Butte is a great climbing place or even a short hike, is also down the road. - Zach Merritt

Should have picked a site on other side of park. The railroad is on that side, but it faces the Columbia River..beautiful...A4 backs up the very loud Highway! AND- the park is ONLY accessed from the East bound highway...if you leave the park to explore the area, you'll have to turn around at the towns on either side (about 7 miles to Rowena or Mosier) - 1yearusa

Billion dollar views are what makes this park so special. The park is right along the Columbia River Gorge - the views are spectacular. Unfortunately there is no river access but drive 3 miles in either direction for access. The train and interstate 84 noise is constant but the lovely view of the river makes that OK. It's tricky to reach the park if you travel east on 84 you have to pass the park and take the next exit west ??? The restrooms are typical state park and this one is clean but the water pressure is very weak. Excellent cell phone and OTA stations. No campfires or open flames allowed. - ctravelgal01

Interior roads are paved. Park is "somewhat" Big Rig friendly. No issues with trees or branches, and we had no problems with manuvering our 40' 5th wheel. We had Satellite Reception with our DISH Playmaker in the sites that were located at the top, closer to I-84. Sites further away from I-84 and closer to the water have a lot of trees... Cell Phone Coverage w/ AT&T is good. Most sites are very much shaded and depending on the time of year you may want to choose a sunnier site. Paved sites that are level and have fire rings. There is NO river access from the park. As others have stated, the park is located between the railroad tracks and I-84. Noise from the RR tracks was not really noticeable. The upper portion of the park is very much sunnier, but has signifant road noise from I-84, and super WINDY! If you are one to sit outside and enjoy the park during the day, I would recommend the sites that are farthest away from the top. Lots to see and do in the Columbia River Gorge if you like exploring! Many watrerfall hikes, The Dalles Lock and Dam and Bonniville Lock and Dam (was super cool) Hood River area is home to hundreds of wind and kite surfers. We would stay here again, BUT it is very, very windy in this section of The Gorge. Very friendly campground hosts! Check in time is 4pm, so plan accordingly! - RiversedgePA

Basic, no-frills park that caters to long-termers working on nearby construction projects. Excellent for us lower-income, retired folks as long as you have your own bathroom. Wifi worked great. Staff very friendly and helpful; I called in from 15 miles out and he was there waiting for me to guide me in the dark to my spot. I wouldn't bring children, a Big Rig or anything with slide-outs here if I were you. - Old Mountain Man

Sites are very narrow, dirt and gravel and uneven. Neighbors awning protruded into our site. NO TV! Too much emphasis placed on grass. Limited space for towed vehicle. - SmokeyBear

Nice clean park with wonderful hosts. Small park with some long term residents. Spaces were nicely shaded and adequate for big rigs. No bathrooms, no pool, no game room, no laundry, no Wi-Fi. Just a nice, quiet place with full hook-ups to spend a night or two. If you need more - go someplace else. Cost was $20 per night when we were there. Payment by cash or check only. About 12 miles south of The Dalles, Oregon on SR 197. Coordinates: 45d 27'04.66" N and 121d 07' 44.85" W Address: 10 NE Aiken St., Dufur, OR - Gerry Brentnall

Very easy going process to book and pay for the site, that was appreciated. Sites are clean, grassy, nice shade and I was able to keep my 25' trailer attached to my truck. A big plus. Very glad I chose this location as a stop over on my long trip. Will definitely stay here again when in the neighborhood. - Off_we_go

I stayed here for 2 nights in site 4 while passing through with a 27 foot motorhome with a tow car. The price was for a full hookup site with 30 and 50 amp power. I don't believe they have a dump station. Have to admit my review of this park is highly colored by the fact my previous campground was a COE park in the Columbia River Gorge which may have been the noisiest campground I've ever been. I-84 and trains amplified by the Gorge. Here I got a babbling brook right behind my site. I could have given this a 10 just for the peace and quiet. It's only 15-20 minutes from the interstate and for folk traveling I-84 who can't take the noise -- and most of the campgrounds along I-84 are right in the Gorge -- this is an excellent alternative. This is a city park with 15 fairly rustic RV sites, some of which are full hookups. The rest of the park is a ball field and a day use area with a playground and a very nice swimming pool -- adults only on Friday and Saturday nights. The sites are on grass and are all back-in and are not evenly spaced. Not much in the way of shade until late afternoon. Public picnicking areas are interspersed between the sites. Most if not all back up to the brook which is clear and beautiful and comes from Mount Hood. The manager is on site and very helpful. The park is very tidy and well maintained. About half the sites were occupied while I was there. The town of Dufur is very small but quite nice -- great downtown market that carried everything and served food and ice cream. Verizon was perfect (there's a tower on a hill beside the town). I didn't use the restrooms. - SoloRed

This is a city run park in Dufur. The host is extremely helpful and does a great job running and taking care of the campground. Most of the sites are back-in next to a creek and facing the ball field. Very clean bathrooms. We would stay again. - spitfirepete

We stayed at Bridge RV overnight and similar to other reviews, I agree the park is very clean and well kept. The staff was very friendly and particular about their rules (I like that). Cable, WiFi and AT&T mobile service were all good. The downside is the location (which isn't the park's problem) with the road and train noise all night long. We had a pull through site in the middle of the park but still had a lot of noise. - Kernsie

Small, well maintained park. I stayed there for a week in a fifth wheel. The campground is sandwiched between Route 14 and a railroad. The train was intermittently a mild problem. Route 14 was another story. It is heavily traveled but commercial and non-commercial vehicles. The noise was excessive, making sleep and solitude difficult. It would be wise to avoid campsites that are near the road (like we were). Spacing is a bit tight but OK. Grass is green as they water the grass every night. We had to bring in outdoor furniture every evening. Water sprayed half way up the trailer during watering, so it best to keep the windows closed. Based on the traffic noise, I would not come back here again. - CamperDanandBenne

This park is in a beautiful setting across the Columbia River from Hood River. Park sites are close makes g efficient use of available space. The biggest surprise for us was the bridge crossing the Columbia River. It is a narrow two lane steel draw bridge with 9 foot lanes and an appropriate 30 mph speed limit. I felt a little uneasy sharing the space with a logging truck but crossed the bridge without swapping any paint. The Toll is $8.00 each way for RV and Toad. - Scott and Lorraine

As we were part of a group I can't tell you the rate. Very nice and open parking. We clustered around several poles. The security light was switchable so you get some sleep. Most of the sockets on the poles were 50A. Call ahead to check rates and availability. - CharlieB

Spots are level and spacious. It was very nice for a fair grounds.
The only thing I didn't like was the lack of a dump station. - Impkitti

This is a clean park with occasional distant train noise. Some events can also be noisy.
Sites are near-level unshaded grass. Voltage is good.
WiFi is strong. I measured 868.5 kB/s down.
Verizon LTE works well.
TV: ABC CBS FOX PBS. VHF weather radio is very weak.
The manager is friendly and helpful.
Unfortunately, camping is only allowed when some event is held, so it's best to call ahead well in advance. - wjzcbn

Best thing about this park is quiet which is why we chose it. Other parks are too close to busy highway and train tracks. There are about 40 sites with water hookups but no electric. Showers and bathrooms are old and run down but I suppose clean enough - they were cleaned daily. Best for smaller rigs but there are a few that can accommodate larger rigs. Pads are small but some are open enough that you can hang over the pad if needed. There was a 40 footer when we were there. Beautiful Hood River runs through it. There is a geocache at the park if you participate in geocaching. Also picked fresh wild blackberries while there. We stayed 4 days and I would stay again. - utchaps

This Hood River County park is located on 36 acres along the South bank of the Hood River. The campground is close to town, yet quiet (no trains). The sites are kind of spread around with two sections, one mostly for RV's and the other for tent campers. Sites are available on a first come first serve basis with no reservations. We stayed in site E which had a wonderful view and sound of the roaring Hood River below. There is playground equipment, a picnic shelter, tables, and fishing. RVs up to 30' are allowed. The showers and bathrooms were in terrible condition and we didn't use them. Also be aware that the two electrical outlets next to sites M and N were not working at the time we stayed and didn't look like they had worked in a long time, however there is plenty of water at almost all the sites. - josh970506

Great camping. One of the most Beautiful RV parks. Next to the river. Great fishing. The train honks a lot but they told me about it upfront. Not a big deal. Nice spots. New asphalt roads and sites. Be sure you check the length of site before booking. I’m in spot A12. Had no problem getting my 19 foot trailer in without any spotters. If you get anxiety from backing in or not good at it, choose another spot LoL. Definitely one of my favorites. My silver Lab loved the water. Plenty of space for her to jump in. - PaPa Jimbo

Very beautiful campground right by the river. Will come back to do some fishing. You do hear the train whistle as it goes past, but in our trailer it was never loud enough at night to wake us up. If you are in a tent or tent trailer it might be. The beauty of the park was more then enough to out way it for us. We were on A loop and sites looked to be newly paved. We will be back here for sure. - Chapy18

The campground is beautiful and well maintained. But, if you expect sound sleep, the horns from the trains will prohibit it. The trains run by all night with the horns blaring. I had a difficult time sleeping at this campground, and do not plan to stay here again. A fellow camper told me that he got used to it. Lots of Canadian geese reside here on a beautiful river. - Nothing But Blue Skies
