I agree this is not a park for large RVs. And not for small dogs. The dog area is fenced with cyclone on one side and tall, dense blackberry bushes on the other. I thought of coyotes, raccoons and skunks hiding in wait, so I did not let my miniature pinschers off-leash while they did their business. Otherwise it's an ok place to overnight. We camped at Van Mall RV Park in a Motorhome.

We could not find the "within walking distance restaurants" unless they meant the vending machines at the Toyota dealer, which closes at 6. If you drive a mile or two you will find good restaurants.

Nice small park but designed for small RV's. If you are larger than 32 ft., very challenging.

The turns getting to the park off Fourth plain Rd are very sharp and treacherous.

Site surface was a concrete pad with sunny and open exposure. We camped at Van Mall RV Park in a Motorhome.

Conveniently located close to the Vancouver mall. Vancouver really lacks a good park for large rigs, better off staying in Portland.

We stayed overnight at this park. I have a 35 ft motor coach and it was difficult to fit in the site. It is incredibly difficult to maneuver a motorcoach in this park. The park is very cramped due to all of the seasonal RVs that are there and they are unsightly. There is no grass, no picnic table and no trees. I would not stay there again.

If you need rv service, this park is directly across the street from a GREAT rv service center. I got an oil change on my motorcoach and the service was outstanding.

This is more of a long-term park, than an RV park. It appeared that many RVs were permanent residences. It is a very cramped park. We felt that we were really in an RV parking lot. We did appreciate the location as it is close to shopping, restaurants and travel routes. "Free WiFi" really means no WiFi. The people in the office know that's a problem but make no effort to fix it. Since WiFi is essential to us as we travel, we would give this one a miss in future. The standard pad is level cement but it is a challenge to park. There are some 'premium' pads near the office. We camped at Van Mall RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a parking lot with "monthly" residents. One man had been there for 12 years. Our neighbor, whose trailer had not been moved in years, had a party every night until about 4 AM. She left her doors and windows open and had music blaring. When we complained to the front desk, we were told that "someone would talk to her". That didn't change anything.

Our space was so small that we could not open the car doors or the trailer door fully.

The rest rooms and laundry were nice and clean. There was a small room with a kitchen that was next to the office. This is the only place we could connect to WiFi. We camped at Van Mall RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a paved park with cement pads, no shade, VERY tight spots. The location is easy on and off highway 205 and quiet at night. The check-in was easy and polite. You can not put out awnings as you will hit your neighbor's RV. My Verizon worked great and their TV channels were OK. We camped at Van Mall RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The pros: Clean, warm bathrooms with private shower rooms with hot water and generous hooks, enclosed dog run and separate open dog grass area, good lighting, friendly and accommodating staff, all paved (rained 2" in 24 hours while there and no mud), very quiet in spite of close quarters, Wi-Fi, cable TV. Cons: Unless one of the premium sites is selected, the pull-throughs and back-ins can require some maneuvering to accommodate both the coach and toad. We camped in a 35' 3-slide rig with a CRV in a back-in but it did require folding the mirror on the CRV in order to open the coach door. Rate was with Good Sam discount. We camped at Van Mall RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is very much like an RV parking lot. Sites are packed in about as close as they can get. When we called for reservations we were asked what year our RV is and the condition of it. We were also asked if we could email a picture of it for inspection. When we arrived, we were asked for drivers license numbers, our birth dates, the license tag numbers of both the RV and the towed car, our phone number, our address. All this, even though we were paying cash. They don't accept credit cards. Apparently they don't want any old RVs in this park. We were accepted, however, and found the park to be fairly quiet. We stayed in our coach and did not use the facilities other than the WiFi which seemed to work ok. We have never been asked such invasive questions before at any park in the country. These questions made us very uncomfortable as though a 2000 year RV, and ourselves by extension, is somehow substandard. We will not be staying there again. We camped at Van Mall RV Park in a Motorhome.

Campground has several residents, checks for better looking RV's (No run down or old RV's allowed). Concrete pads and 50 amp service with RV sales & parts across from park. Has Slight freeway noise and OK showers! Laundry a little on expensive side but would stay again! We camped at Van Mall RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Price reflects a monthly rate. Cable TV available but very poor reception. We used our antenna for most of our stay. They do not allow bicycling in the park. Our site had no parking for our towed vehicle, which was a big inconvenience since we were there for 5 weeks. We will not stay here again unless we are here for a "short" stay. We camped at Van Mall RV Park in a Motorhome.

Although lacking a bit in charm, this park is well located near I-205 in the north-central part of town. Mostly paved, there is little grass with most spaces separated with rock-filled strips. Wooden board fences also divide the spaces. About 85% of the spaces are long term. The current manager has been on the job a few months, and was quite pleasant and helpful (directing us to restaurants, etc.) Not much within walking distance, but several restaurants are a short drive. "Snooty" attitude remarked on in other comments did not seem present, though when we called for a reservation, we were asked the year of our RV. (This occurred with several other RV parks on this trip -- a more frequent experience than in the past.) We can't really call this "kid friendly" -- kids are welcome, but there's no real facilities for them -- no pool or playground. We would stay here again. We camped at Van Mall RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have a converted coach. It is a clean highway coach. Unfortunately it is a converted 1954 GMC PD4104 highway coach. We were turned away, for a 15 hour overnight stop. Too old!!! Cost is an estimate as we didn't get to that point. Coach owners beware!! We camped at Van Mall RV Park in a Motorhome.

This sized park is overpriced without any amenities. Site 92 is not a big rig site as mentioned by previous writer. Manager is frustrated by this also but she is very nice. Obviously owner wants to milk RV'ers for their money. The TV cable is inadequate, the Wi-Fi is pay for each day. The park feels very cramped. I checked that Wi-Fi was NOT available as you have to sign up and pay the daily rate. We camped at Van Mall RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wasn't expecting the small sites when they advertised 'big rigs welcome' and we're only 40 ft. Sites are hard to get into as they were laid out many years ago when rigs were smaller and narrower. No room for our Jeep in the site. Park is located behind the Toyota Dealer and close enough to I-205 to have to listen to all the traffic. Would not stay here again and will not recommend to anyone else. We camped at Van Mall RV Park in a Motorhome.

Friendly lady in the office to take my payment. This park is not for those who want a lot of outdoor scenery, as it is in the city of Vancouver not far from the Vancouver Westfield Mall, and is across the street from a Toyota dealership. However, you get the sense that it is a well run operation, with great restrooms and showers and a generally clean appearance overall. No recreation room or anything like that, just a place to camp. I was pleasantly surprised that it was plenty quiet enough to get a good night's sleep despite its urban location. Will stay there again if the opportunity arises. We camped at Van Mall RV Park in a Truck Camper.
