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

Good shaded park and wonderful views of the river. Oftentimes you will see grain barges and Stern wheelers passing by the park. Grass all through the park as well as many shade trees. Look for the Prune and Pear trees with editable fruit. Yes, there are PRUNE trees, not Plum trees. Sites are staggered so you don't look into the neighbors window. - Root

Rate is based on Disabled Veteran Discount ($8 to make a reservation). The park is down the hill from the Memaloose Rest Area right on the Columbia River. We checked in online and printed the parking pass and the receipt to put in the collection box. Our site (A4) backs up to I-84 so we got some highway noise but we didn't find it intrusive. The site is plenty long enough for our 39' motor coach but we had to park our car across the pad in front of us. I wouldn't call this a destination park unless you take advantage of the fishing on the river. The park has been here awhile so you only have 30 amp electric service. Not a problem with the breezes coming into the park from the river.
For the holiday weekend this place was full all three nights. They did have some overflow parking for $10 a night. Like all Oregon State Park's reservations must be made well in advance on holiday weekends and this one during fishing seasons. - StarlifterFE

Location was great, just above the Columbia river with beautiful views all around. The park is tight for big trailers but doable. The downside is that you are right on the interstate. The city of Mt. Hood is close with lots to do and see. - kckid

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

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

Good access to the Columbia River and a number of trails leading from the campground. Hosts are very friendly. Freeway noise is constant and trains can be loud! This is the Columbia Gorge though so you expect both. There is a very nice beach area right adjacent to the campground. - Fish dude

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

Beautiful, secluded, quiet spot in the forest. Just 3 miles up the mountain from the Columbia River Gorge sits this little paradise of nature. Great owners and met lovely people. No laundry or food available but not far from Hood River or Stevenson. Will go back again and again! - Marcia DeLano

Stayed here for 6 days while exploring the area. This was an excellent park for our stay. all the spaces are back in spaces but they are wide and deep enough for rig and tow vehicle. The internet was excellent. There was a fire ban but the each site had a fire pit that could have been used. The whole area was very quite and nice place to stay. A very relaxing time. - Teddy Bear Travels

Our site backed up to the open forest - sites were staggered, so it felt very private. Bathrooms were outhouses (not my favorite, but were very clean and serviced often). Staff escorted us to site and helped us back in - very nice! Staff provided helpful information on sites to see in the area. Had plastic picnic tables, so you could not set up your BBQ on them. - Kimba

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

Great Forest Service CG located about 7 miles out of Trout Lake via SR 141 and FR 24 (paved all the way). Sites are generally well separated with dirt/gravel pads. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Water spigots are located throughout the campground. A dump station can be found at the city park in Trout Lake. Campground is generally open from mid May through mid September. CG is close to Goose Lake (about 6 miles) and Forlorn Lakes for those who like fishing. Note that Goose Lake allows electric boat motors and has a boat launch while Forlorn Lakes is muscle power only and no launch site. The campground doesn't experience heavy usage except during the huckleberry season and during the early part of the fishing season. It can, however, be busy during any weekend so reservations for a weekend might be advisable. Peterson Prairie is near the Ice Caves and Natural Bridges. Both were formed when Mount Adams last erupted and are worth checking out. If you decide to explore the Ice Cave, wear warm clothing and adequate foot gear -- it's cold and slippery down there! - Bruce and Sue

First of all, let me emphatically state that there is no "useable" internet (there is WiFi at the registration booth, none at any site....same with cell phone service (you may get one bar at their playground but NONE at any site). We reserved a premium FHU site (30amp, water and sewer) months ahead of our arrival date and paid around $77 (first two nights deposit) When we checked-in, I asked about cell service and internet (a REQUIREMENT since my wife needs it for her work). The host said ther was no way we'd get either in our assigned site and (after some convincing) they realized that they could put us in a "better" site (but it was gonna cost more). We tried it but it wouldn't work, so just put us back in the cheaper site. It was long enough with plenty of space and privacy. Nice. But no services. We went back to Trout Lake (a no blinking light town) ant found a community park with a handful of camping sites, some with water, a few had water and electric (at least two had 50amp service!)....no sewer at site but a nice dump station (that was "shared" by four rigs....NP!) ....so we moved The folks at Elk Meadows argued about ANY refund (she told me they held the full fees when a month long camper decided to leave after two weeks).....so I told her I was gonna call the credit card folks.....she decided that she was thru arguing with me and refunded all but our two night deposit.... - ArkyDoodle

The camp hosts were constantly on the move asking folks how their stay was going as well as making sure the park was spotless. The water was very soft and had good pressure. The power never went out and was always at 110V even though the park was full and the weather was a bit warm (80-85) during the day. So AC's were running. No cell service (A good thing in my book) as there are much better thing to do in this area than always looking down. But there is a small satellite based hot spot at the office to check emails. The views of Mt. Adams from the RV park was simply awesome. Our site was one of the tighter ones, But was still fine for our 36Ft. Class A Motor Home. We highly recommend Elk Meadows RV park. - super7pilot

Long but somewhat narrow sites. Shrubs/trees between sites afforded privacy. Plenty of room to manuver your vehicle/ RV. Wonderful views of Mt. Adams. Lots to do at park and in the area. Will definitely go back. - CM WA
