The Oregon State Park system is definitely in better shape than the State system in California! This is a great park that sits against the Rogue River. Sites seemed to be hit or miss with regards to being level; ours was fine. Even the ones that were not level didn't seem to be off by much. Camp hosts were amazing! We seemed to have a little trouble with the power post on our site; we were running off of the 30-amp and the circuit tripped twice at the power post during our stay. Overall, a great stay; only 5 miles from Grants Pass, which has plenty to do. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Always like staying here, beautiful and green this time of year. Long level site, many sites are large and level. Loop F is electric and water but dump site available in park. FHU readily available elsewhere in park. Check-in can be slow sometimes. Used Reserve America to reserve campsite. (additional $8 transaction fee). Freeway nearby adds some noise but the parks beauty makes it all worthwhile. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Price reflects using our Disabled Veterans State Park Pass. Upon arrival we had someone in our reserved site (F30) after the 1 PM checkout time. Backed into an empty site and contacted the occupant. Was told her friend will be there shortly to get move her rig. Talked to the rangers and they also made contact with her. Waited about two hours before we could back into the site. This also happened to friends we were meeting at the park only they had to wait four hours. Noticed there was a lot of dog poop, cigarette butts and litter in the fire pit in our site. Also saw the same is a lot of the others as well. Wife used the showers one day and they were filthy. I don't think we will return. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Motorhome.

Stay away from loops A and B. The sites are very close together and the road is very narrow if you have a bigger rig. Loops C and D are much more spacious. Gracious camp hosts and rangers. Lots of loose dogs, so we're the camp hosts:( Saw one chasing a cat. Lots of road noise from I 5 but what do you want, you are next to the freeway. If you can get a site backing on to the river a bit quieter. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Oregon State Parks are consistently above average and this heavily used park is no exception. We made reservations for the Labor Day weekend and are glad we did since the full hookup loop was full. Our paved pull-thru site was long and fairly level and had a table and fire ring. A fair amount of OTA TV channels and a few holes in the trees for portable satellite. Verizon cell/data were strong. Easy access to I-5 but there was little road noise. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice park, exceptional value. Paved roads and sites; area was clean, well kept, and residents were friendly and quiet during our stay. Very good website for reservations (includes by site dimensions and a picture). There is an $8 charge to reserve a site and while it might not be economical for a one night stay, it does guarantee your site. We reserved our site for two days but there were multiple space available options during our stay. It was very dry, so most grass around sites was brown with worn spots. Our site was sloped from front to rear, but we achieved level without issue. Most sites will need some minor leveling adjustments, but none are severe. Trees will affect satellite reception, but we got a clear shot from our site. Lots of nice hiking trails with river views. There is some highway noise but less than I anticipated. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Motorhome.

We were planning to boondock in this area, but since the temperatures were approaching 100F, we decided we had better find a place with electric hookups. As a result, we made reservations via the online system just before we arrived, and were happy to find sites available, even though we needed them on the weekend. The sites were good - there are many pull thrus and most of them have long enough straight areas to allow big motorhomes like ours to actually pull thru. The electric and water services were reliable. Verizon service was good; AT&T was marginal; both were good with cellular booster. The park is used by a lot of folks who are relatively local - it appeared to be a good park for those with children - there were activities for kids to do. The only reason I did not give the park 10* was due to the reservation system. As mentioned above, we had to book 2 different sites for our 2 night planned stay. The online reservation system (Reserve America) requires an $8 fee per reservation, and since we could not book 2 nights in the same site, we had to not only move during our stay (understandable because we were late booking), but we also had to pay a total of $16 to book the two one-night stays. Other public campground booking services (e.g. national parks in Canada) will allow users to book a stay "night-by-night" and combine multiple nights in the same park into a single booking fee. On a positive note, we decided to stay an additional night, and the folks at the gatehouse were able to "extend" our stay (even though we again had to change sites) and avoid the additional reservation fee. I think if you are willing to risk a site being unavailable, and just show up, you will not need to pay the additional $8. The site fees were $31 for FHU, $28 for electric+water. The rate that I listed ($36) was the average for our 3 night stay (2 FHU, 1 E+W, reservation fees). We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a forested state park. It is located along highway 5, so there is going to be some noise, but it is not disruptive, even when sitting outside. The highway area is flat so there is very minimal noise from trucks either accelerating or slowing down. The noise didn't bother us at all. This park is clean and well maintained. We stayed in D loop about midway between the river and the highway. Spaces are have easy entry and exit. Utilities are well maintained throughout the park and Rangers and Hosts are diligent in park management. They are also very helpful. We chose this park because we wanted to be out of an RV park and into a more natural environment and were not disappointed. The park was near full and we had no issues with noise or traffic. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We mostly hiked within the park. Did a jet boat tour along the Rogue (in Grants Pass). The boat tour was good, but due to the low water the excitement level was moderate. We did see a number of Bald Eagles and other birds. We did the 5 1/2 hour tour and felt it was worth the money. Visited both Gold Hill and Rogue River cities. Small but had some nice spots to wander about.

This is a scenic park with big trees and grass. It's very convenient to I-5. In fact, there's a nice rest stop here. It's also along the Rogue River. We stayed one night in February while traveling north on I-5. Loops and sites are paved. They're reasonably well spaced, but you will see your neighbors. We stayed in the D loop. D12 going up to D22 are on the river side. This is the bottom half of the loop. Some of these will give you a river view. D22 where we stayed didn't have an actual view of the river. We'd stay in D22 again or D24. The upper part of the loop is closer to I-5. The E loop is a circle within the bigger D loop. It's hard to say what the actual I-5 noise would be like in nicer weather. We didn't do it this trip but want to come back in the summer and check out their trails. There's a soft surface river trail and a paved segment of the Rogue River Greenway trail. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice state park right off the 5. Very clean, well run park. A couple of the loops were closed for the winter, We were on D loop pretty close to the river. Large pull thru sites get take quickly, but for $8.00 you can reserve one. No wiFi/cable or OTA, nice... Great place to stay a week or over night. We will be back!

We've stayed here several times over the years. It's lovely, even though just off the freeway. Extremely treed, very big and spacious. Lovely walking trails. On the Rogue River. Ready access to Grants Pass and Ashland and wineries. We don't hear the freeway in our travel trailer. We love how chill the place is.

This park is one of the nicest state parks we have ever stayed. I was very impressed with the pull through sites. Very pretty park. Good Verizon signal. No cable or OTA channels. Not sure about satellite. Our site was free because my husband is disabled Vet. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Motorhome.

Another Oregon State park that delivers a quality product at a reasonable price. Large sites, both back-in and pull-thru are paved and most, but not all, are level. Lots of trees, green grass, and paths to walk. No cable, little OTA, and depending on the site difficult to have a clear shot to the satellites. No WiFi but good Verizon cell/data. Close to Medford and many area attractions. In any other location this park would be a 10, but the interstate noise is significant. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Motorhome.
