Our site was not raked, fire pit had wine bottle, papers plastic stuff. Was just long enough our 36 5th wheel, had to park along the road. No other area to park your vehicle. Power, water and sewer all good. Except the cable cord was just barely sticking out of the ground next to power center. Almost didn't think there was cable have never seen anything like that. This is also a thousand trails so they stop by to tell you about it. Noise from Hwy 27 is loud as the back in is right on the hwy. Was ok late at night. Site somewhat level. Check in was easy. I did complain regarding the dirty fire pit and they came right away and cleaned it up. It's an attractive location we needed something that had cabins because we had friends staying along with us. Would not recommend the tiny houses they offer our friends not much room. Oh RV site came with stink bugs and were still killing them after 3 days. Which you have no control over this in a forest area. - margeandbob

This park was very busy for staying in the middle of the week. A bit nosier then we expected. The spots are not very level, but not horrible. We have stayed at other "Thousand Trails" park and this was a very nice compared to the others. The spots are larger and seemed to be better planned out in the park. The employee were very nice and welcoming. The person at the check in did say that the park was going to get some upgrades but the process is very slow. The showers are on the scary side; inside the restrooms, which did not have a working lock, no lock on the shower doors, shower heads are very old. It bothered my husband so much he stood outside and waiting for me. - GreyShadow

We had a back- in FHU site. We were disappointed in the cleanliness of our site. The fire ring had a large amount of cigarette butts and other debris. The site was muddy, making it difficult to get into/out of our vehicle. We have camped extensively, but our first at a Thousand Trails/Encore park. We expected a pristine park for the amount charged, which was very high for a weekday stay in the fall. - User3295

As others have said larger vehicles are somewhat of a problem in the full hookup sites. But, very manageable. The sites are wide and well laid out we were in #11. The maximum stay is 7 days. But, if there is room you can just move to a different spot for the next 7 days. Lots and lots of trees so no wifi, no satellite. We have T-Mobile and could only get a signal away from the campsite. Everything else worked very well. The campground hosts were Lori and Tom. They are hard workers and really keep all reservations and the sites in good shape. For a very restful stay give it a try. - bdixon2297526

Great campground! All area's are cleaned each day by the camp-hosts. Nice quiet park. Big rigs over 40' can be a challenge, but will work. LOTS of trees, so not a good place for satellite tv. No wifi. Verizon & AT&T work with about 2-3 bars in this area. Full hook ups in what is called the RV LOOP only. The rest have power and water, but there is a dump station for campers to use as part of the payment. - tomandlori

We love a park like this. Beautiful hidden gem half way between Hood River and Mt. Hood. RV sites with FHU and separate tent loop. There's 2 loops with partial hook ups and some sites on the rivers edge. Quiet and peaceful. Nice place for families. No hiking trails in the park but tons of trails for both hiking and mountain biking in the area. Camp hosts very helpful and deliver firewood to your site! We have both Verizon and AT&T and get enough bars to stream. - BobKat Parker

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

Be aware this is a USFS campground, thus there are few if any accommodations beyond a site. We were the only motorhome we saw in the entire campground. The vast majority of the sites are not very level, this campground really is designed for tent campers and those with a small RV like a pop up. Most of the camp sites in the A, B & C loops are located on the side of the hill. D and F loops are a bit more flat and would probably accommodate an RV better. The campground is a typical, very busy weekend USFS campground. The "resort" is a group of cabins and boating area. The store is very overpriced, wood ran $8/bundle when we were there. This is a very crowded lake. Day user numbers are huge, if you don't claim a spot early you're dealing with the crowds in the few open areas. There is not beach area, the lodge has a clearing for those renting boats but the rest of the access to the lake is between the trees. You can walk around the lake, but you can not bike. If you own a Subaru and a tent, this is your type of campground. But for RVs this isn't a great place. Prices are expensive considering there are no amenities and the lake is very crowded. - Y-Guy

Pretty campground but we backed right up to the train tracks. I'm sure we we as close as legally allowed! When the trains came by you knew it. We always knew when they were coming as they blew the whistle loud and long. If you were at the upper side you had the highway. It's close to lots of things to do including Mt.Hood and Mt. Adams. It's a very pretty area with hiking trails and the Columbia Gorge has lots to offer. Again visitors center a must to see all the wonderful places to visit. The only drawback is no dump station. You have to drive to the sewer plant for Hood River. It's easy in and out but up the road from the campground. - Landa

If noise keeps you awake at night, you might consider this: the railroad is very busy, and sounds its horn near the camp area; and there is highway noise on the other side other side of the camp area. However, the park is beautiful. It is convenient to find. It is clean, the sites are well spaced for good since of privacy and elbow room. I believe they are all back-ins, so one might want to check the depth of the sites vs the size of your RV. Sites are well shaded, level and comfortable. Sites have water and electric hook-ups. There is river access for recreation purposes. The system seems to be: go in and choose a spot, then return to the kiosk and follow the self-register instructions. A nice park. Just be aware of the noise problem. - W Davidson

Well, this is a nice little park with one big caveat, which is the railroad crossing on the river access road, and one small caveat, which is the lack of even a dump station. Traveling solo and male, I was able to stretch my tanks, but other should take note.
I spent 12 nights in the site nearest the railroad crossing and survived. I sort of like being near trains, but the horns are very loud. Nonetheless, I grew accustomed to it, and wasn't awakened more than once or twice. But that's me, everybody responds differently.
The park has two major advantages. One is actually the railroad crossing... because so many people dislike trains, it's possible to get a space on a summer weekend without booking far in advance. I was able to book summer weekends 3-4 weeks ahead. The other advantage is that it's one of the few parks that has Columbia River access, a nice little picnic area that's only a short walk away.
On an earlier 2-night visit, I arrived to find my site occupied. Just a trailer, no tow vehicle, hooked up but nobody around. The host was very helpful, and they moved me to a "reserve" site that they kept open for such things. So thumbs-up to the staff for handling it well. - bobk3d

Wyeth Campground is a USFS campground on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge. It is close to all of the fun stuff in the gorge, and is an excellent alternative to the state parks and private campgrounds. Like most forest service campgrounds, it has no hookups, no dump station, and no showers, but does have a restroom with flush toilets, and several water spigots. The campground is clearly marked no big rigs, 30 foot max. Our 25 footer had plenty of room. I think a 32 foot rig could get in, but anything larger would be really pushing it. There is a grassy overflow area that a big rig could get into if there weren't a lot of other campers. Sites are spacious and paved. Really nice. We reserved site #9, but when we got there, we found site 9 was on a steep enough slope that we didn't have enough leveling blocks to level. We switched to site #13, one of the walk-up sites, which was only about an inch out of level. The campground is heavily forested. Satellite and solar panels are never going to work. We didn't try the TV. Verizon and AT&T were both strong. The main problem with all the campgrounds in the gorge is the noise. I-84 goes down the Oregon side of the gorge, and there are train tracks on both sides. We could hear the freeway all the time, and frequent trains. We heard a few train whistles, but they were far enough away that they didn't bother us at all. My main complaint with this campground would be the price. It was $20/night for a site with no amenities. The campground was beautiful. The site was nice. But the price was a bit high for what you get. - AnnP

Fairly tight roads and sites, but not excessively so. We had grass at our site and the staff encourages clean rigs, so washing your RV on site is OK. Cable for me was very fuzzy, so went OTA and got a number of Portland-based channels that were very clear. Train noise was minimal, unless they blow the horn, which was rare. Road noise was a bit bothersome outside, but not distracting. On most days I'm sure that there could be spectacular views of the river and gorge, but on the day I stayed there was a lot of smoke from the area wildfires, so visibility was only about 1 mile. Park staff advises to NOT drive your RV over the Hood River Bridge. We came in from the east and were advised to cross at The Dalles, on US 197. While this bridge was also a bit narrow, there was no toll. If coming from the west, ask the office for the best place to cross. My site was long enough for my 40-foot class A, but barely. We had to disconnect the toad before moving into the site. All the sites seem to be a bit on the short side. I would probably stay here again if in the area. - Scubadude62

If spending the night in the parking lot of the 24 hour convenience store is what you're looking for, this park is for you. The park itself is ok, asphalt pads with grass in between (mostly, ours was river rock and unusable). The problem is that it sits right on the highway and adjacent to the 24 hour mini mart and gas station. It appears as though overnights and short stays are assigned the pull throughs in the row next to the gas station. In 7 years of RVing, I've never had such a horrible experience trying to sleep. Satellite reception is good, WiFi is good, Verizon cell signal is spotty. We didn't use bathrooms, showers or the laundry room. Office staff is great. - Chilerick

This is a very clean well laid out rv park overlooking the columbia river. It would be a 10 had it not been for a very busy noisy road that runs right past the park. This combined with a well used rail track immediately next to the park detracts from the tranquillity and ambience. - flugelboneman

This is one of the most beautiful campgrounds we've ever stayed in, and we've done a lot of camping. There's only one big problem, road noise from the highway which runs along the cliff above the campground. Although you can't see the cars or trucks, you can hear them, all day and all night. Our campsite was right on the creek running through the campground, and we could still hear the trucks' engine brakes, despite the splashing water in the creek. Other than that, it's great, the sites are widely spaced, the trees are large, there's lots of shade and the whole thing is well-managed by a representative of Thousand Trails. The bathrooms are "vaults," but they are clean. Unfortunately, almost all of the forest service campgrounds near Mt. Hood are right near the highway, next time, we would probably stay in a more out-of-the-way place and "commute" to Mt. Hood. - Prof Dan
