27 RV Parks near Skamania, Washington

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

This is a very nice park with reasonable space between rigs. The landscaping is very nice with a fountain pond and ducks. Nice flowers. There are many permanent residents in the lower sections but transients are together on the upper tier. We were glad because there is quite a steep hill leading to the other tiers. We would worry about scraping our tail end. We had an issue with the camp host we parked next to not picking up after his dog and having it run into our site off leash. A camp host is supposed to be the epitome of a camper. These folks missed that mark. We left a nice note and a whole roll of doggie bags. Those had no impact but a visit to the office did correct the problem. Again, this park is very nice. Not fault of their own and nothing they can do about it but it is very noisy. There is a road and a busy highway at the front of the park and a train (no whistle) at the backside. There were also folks with loud diesel pick-up trucks coming/going in the middle of the night. Would stay for an overnight trip again but not much more. - FT Travelers3

We were last here 5 years ago and were not overly impressed by this large park but wanted to be east of Portland to make the start of our Columbia River Gorge drive easy. We just made the RV age limit and had a level, pull through, FHU with cable site that was satellite friendly. It was near the front of the park and, thus, close to the office, bathrooms, laundry, and pool. As others have noted, the majority of sites are for extended stay customers. Unlike last visit, the bathrooms we used were clean. The laundry was modern and reasonable. I don't understand why a park this big has such a small pool. I did not see any recycling. - Jerry S

This is a very nice park with level sites that are somewhat close, some have shade and others are full sun, full hookups, cable or ota channels, very good WiFi, good ATT cell signal and a nice pool...Check in was very nice and the showers are very clean as well as the park itself...the laundry is excellent as u can use your debit card to pay for the $2 washer or $2 45 min dryer no hassle with quarters and have your cell phone text you when the washer or dryer is done...this is a very large RV Park that is big rig friendly and has 3 different levels...you can also wash your RV for $5, a nice thing if your take the time like we did....a lot of shopping, restaurants near by, close to I84 and a nice drive to the Falls or Mt Hood...sometimes a park like this is nice relief from the dirt and grass of a state park with no cable or WiFi....we would stay here again if in the area.... - smoky40

Searching on-line for more information I found this: "Part of Beacon Rock State Park, the Woodard Creek Campground has five utility sites that provide electricity, water and sewer. Follow signs off Highway 14 (near mile post 34) to the watercraft launch area and follow the signs to the RV campsites. The sites have a maximum length of 40 feet and these campsites are open year round. The equestrian campsites, located at the equestrian trailhead, feature two standard sites that will accommodate a horse trailer each, a hi-line for horses, livestock water and a CXT vault toilet. There is no potable water and no electricity. Primitive camping fee applies. All campsites are first come, first served. Winter facilities at the moorage area include two tent sites, one shower and one restroom. Overnight moorage and the boat launch are available year-round." - JackSchmotzer

Used the park as a 'landing spot' so we could travel around and see family, which worked well for us. The lot reserved for us in the B lot had too many low hanging branches, so we were moved to the A lot...just got leveled and the camp ranger told us they had someone else coming into that spot and wanted us to move back down to the B lot, but in a spot we could fit in. That worked out well, but moving around was a bit of a pain. They did give us a bundle of firewood for our trouble. With the trails/roads still being closed due to the previous fire made using the park for hiking, etc impossible. As stated in other posts, the train track is right below the park and is used pretty heavily. - locatjl

nice enough park. will have leveling issues in a loop with a8 probably best choice. if you are a light sleeper constant train traffic will be a problem. enjoyed our 6 night stay and would come back. - rockhill

A beautiful state park situated right on the Columbia Gorge. Unfortunately, a big fire last fall has closed down most of the hikes in the area. Not being from the area, we weren't aware of the fire until we were emailed special instructions a few weeks out about how to access the campground. Had we been notified when the fire occurred, we may have changed stayed elsewhere. Regardless, the campground was untouched by the fire and is still lush with trees and undergrowth. When we pulled up to our site, we found someone in it. The ranger on duty took care of it immediately, and we only had to wait about 15 minutes to get into our site. Our site wasn't very level, but we managed with our blocks. Quiet park, and good location once the major attractions open back up again. - RVerFamily

Pulled in Thursday afternoon, and found out they cant take cards, so had to scurry for $90 cash. Older park with established Landscaping and items of interest. Site was big, with nice landscaping, except for the nice crop of Poison Oak in the planters. They were painting the bathrooms, so not very clean at the time, but appeared that they would be nice when done. They also had Porta-Potties in a couple spots. No WiFi or Cable, but enough ATT service to use my Personal Hotspot. - DocWMB

Not a lot has changed from previous reviews. An older park, some RVs are obviously long term (not well kept around them) while others are well kept. The short term sites all seem to be pull through w/ water and electric only. I think the sites are very narrow but do have wild shrubs, trees, etc separating the sites for privacy; however, we had trouble putting slide out without hitting a tree and it is very difficult to put chairs, grill , etc out. However, it had been raining when we arrived and we had lots of water on our site. The roads have recent new gravel, but we joked that our door mat might float away. Managers now seem to have regular hours and were friendly and helpful. - BandD

This is more a trailer park than RV park. Sewer is for long term, monthly, only. There is never anyone in the office. Fill out the envelope and drop it in the slot. I was told when I called that the shower was free, it is not. I was also told you could get satellite reception from a rooftop mount dish, also not true. The stream is a rockbed, bone dry. Sites are not being maintained. Many firepits have beer cans and trash in them. Rule says dogs must be leashed, dogs are loose in park. 5mph speed limit is not enforced. Lots of dust. We enjoy trains, but this is ridiculous. It feels like the freight trains are coming right through the living room. - paxton

A tiny gem right on the Columbia. Amazing riparian life in this area! Campground was well kept. If you are planning to camp here be mindful of the height restriction at the park entrance. - Janet H

Best campground that I have ever visited because it has all of my favorite things within view. The Columbia River Gorge, trains and a brew pub with an excellent porter are all right here within a 500 yard walk. The sites are close together and the showers are stark but clean. Would love to spend more time here. - ditsyquoin

This is a clean park with frequent, loud train noise from both banks of the Columbia River. The trains on the tracks adjacent to the park do not blow horns, but those on the Washington side do, and are quite audible.
Sites are narrow, near-level gravel, separated by grass strips. All have a picnic table. There are some trees but little shade. Voltage is good.
Roads are gravel in very good condition. With the park full, maneuvering would be tight.
There are two showers, one accessible. They are clean and private, but unheated. There's no way to adjust water temperature or the shower head.
WiFi is strong. I measured 1055.4 kB/s down.
Verizon LTE works well.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
No terrestrial broadcast TV or VHF weather radio. - wjzcbn

Sites were close together. Sites were not maintained very well. Dead grass if any, mostly dirt. Freight train runs about 100 ft. from the edge of park at high speed; horn, a vibration inside campground every half hour or so day and night. We were not told of the freight train when reservations were made. Will not return. - carole darnell

Large, family-oriented, busy KOA close to the Interstate and the Historic Cascade Locks and Bonneville Fish Hatchery. Hard to find if coming from the East--ask for directions. Well marked if coming from the West. Sites are situated under beautiful large pine trees, but grass is almost non-existent, creating lots of dusty areas. Many children playing in the streets, riding bicycles, etc. Drive carefully!! Makes a good base for exploring the Columbia River Gorge--but not for a quiet, relaxing place to hang out for a week. - MissouriBird

Nice park, mature trees, lots of shade. But the location next to the railway and crossing makes for a very noisy night. Very busy park that fills up quickly. Sites need to be built up to level them. Lots of sandy dirt. It would be very muddy and wet if it is raining a lot. - acadiandave

We stayed here for about three weeks. After the first night we decided to find a different campground due to the road and railroad noise which is pretty bad. BUT, we decided to stay and are so glad we did. We adjusted to the noise quickly.
This campground is a jewel. It's small and terraced and directly above the Columbia River. I so enjoyed our daily dog walks down to the river and back up again. There are coves with picnic tables and benches. There are places to swim (at your own risk) in the river. Pets are welcomed throughout the campground and down by the river.
The grounds are kept up nicely. Hook-ups are well maintained and up to date. Good steady electric and good water pressure. The hosts are wonderful people and very helpful. The laundry is clean. We were in site one nearest the office and laundry and were able to use our satellite with no problems. Good steady electric and good water pressure.
The town of Stevenson is just over a mile away and had a surprisingly well stocked grocery store. Go just another couple of miles and you can cross "The Bridge of the Gods" into Oregon which is perfectly fine to cross with your RV whatever the size. It's a 40 minute drive to Portland via I 84.
The only reason I didn't give this park a 10 is the noise but if you want to be near the river with gorgeous views and don't mind the noise this is the place for you. - RosieandThumper

The campground pictures were misleading. Hookups had to be done by running the line to the front of the motorhome or if we had backed in to the site if could be done as usually, but you would have missed the view of Columbia River.
The train tracks are approximately 50 yards from the camp sites. The trains run on a regular basis day and night. Very noisy and disturbing.
The host people are friendly and helpful. - USMC5811

You are on the banks of the Columbia River, but this sliver of land is wedged between the main highway and the train tracks. Dozens of trains day and night come through: crossing is nearby so lots of whistle blowing. No antenna or satellite reception. Convenient location to Stevenson: had a great brunch at the Skamania Lodge a short distance away. Great view from the Lodge. There are lots of campgrounds around if you know the names of the little towns around. Oregon is across the river and a nice boat ride is available from Cascade of the Locks: a lovely little town across the river. - travelexpert

DO NOT TAKE EXIT 22 IF YOUR RV IS OVER 26 FEET. The exit is "Corbett Hill" and has a 10% grade (up) and very curvy. Larger RVs could have trouble. Use Exit 18 and follow the Historic Columbia River Hwy. Exit 18 has a 13'10" bridge but any RV should clear that. This is a small, but neat and clean RV park. Most of the RVs are seasonal or permanent but it is not junked up. Each site is tidy. Crown Point RV Park is in a very small town (Corbett) just a little way out of Gresham/Portland. Even though you're very close to the city, you are definitely in the country. It is located right on the Historic Columbia River Hwy so, no matter which you drive out of the park, you will have beautiful views and Mt Hood looms in the background. The roads and sites are gravel with grass in between. It does not feel crowded - there is elbow room between the sites. The Wifi worked really well the first couple of days but then started to fall off. Verizon cell signal was really good and utilities worked just fine and were in a position. There is a little road noise from the Historic Columbia River Hwy but not too bad. We would come back. - jomark

The family managing this park provides top notch customer service and that's why I'm rating so high. This was hands-down our best experience communicating with RV park staff. She returned voicemails as soon as possible. We checked in after office hours, but the daughters came up to greet us and got us in the right spot. Welcome packet was taped to our electrical box and included a hand-written note and some goodies. Husband brought our package that had been delivered that day to us even though it was after their office-hours. When we paid the next morning, she provided us a number of good suggestions of things to do. Stayed two nights; wish it could have been longer. Sounds like it can be hard to get a site here as 70% are long-term. Park is smaller, quiet, and well kept. We were in site 16 which was next to the fence by the exit. Plenty of space for our 40' fifth wheel and truck. There was a nice big grassy area between us and the next site down, and the managers graciously let us park our extra vehicle/trailer in the grass. We did not feel cramped at all. Luckily there was no RV site across the road from our site so that made it easier for backing in and getting out. When we plugged our EMS box into the 50-amp it gave us a notice about faulty ground, so we plugged into the 30-amp and had no problems. (I think now that our EMS was the issue). Water/sewer worked as desired. Trees around, but none that would scrape the RV. The entrance to the park can be a bit tricky - it's pretty much one lane, you go between a building and a fence. You may need to take up both lanes of the highway to turn in, but light traffic on this road. We did NOT take exit 22 off I-84 and are glad. The grade is uphill heading towards the park and there are many tight turns. Exit 18 was easier; there is one narrow curve down the road a bit after you exit and you feel like you want to take up both lanes. You go under a bridge and you can't see oncoming traffic so just be cautious. - FrozenWaters

This is a very small park in a great location for sightseeing. Getting to the park has it's challenges. One option is a 1.5 mile 10 percent grade hill and the other is a narrow, curvy, two-lane road for 7 miles. Neither ideal for a big rig but I did it in low traffic time of day. It's easiest to get into the park by going through the fire station parking lot. Discuss all of this when making a reservation. I called way ahead and got the best site in the park - a long pull-thru, FHU with 50 amp. Not many are open for satellite but this one is. All utilities were great and free Wifi was excellent. Strong Verizon signal. All sites looked pretty level but I don't know the hookup situation at others. Office staff is excellent - friendly, helpful, flexible. Rate is partial Passport America for a week stay. - cwier
