“Centrally located, but very shady”

Reviewed Oct 17, 2018

Overall Rating

Ainsworth State Park was a perfect location for our exploration of Portland (30-40 minutes away), the Columbia River Gorge (you're in the heart of it!), and the Mount Hood area (about an hour to the ski area on the southern side of the mountain). The hiking trails at the park itself remained closed from fire damage in October 2018, but... more

“Nice Camping Close to Portland”

Reviewed Sep 24, 2018

Overall Rating

Though I usually travel with my camper, on a recent quick trip to Portland for a concert I threw my tent in the car with the anticipation of camping at Ainsworth State Park. I didn't make reservations because, with the state park closure, I figured "how busy can it be at the end of September?" The answer is--pretty busy! Because th... more

“A hidden Gem in the Columbia Gorge!”

Reviewed Sep 15, 2018

Overall Rating

We booked our site before the Eagle Creek fire destroyed the area, really was a shame someone was so stupid! We wanted to keep our reservation, the campsite was a large pull thru with plenty of room and were glad we did. There is minimal noise from the trains, I have ear plugs and with the window open, I slept fine. The campground is a... more

“We enjoyed our stay immensely!”

Reviewed Jul 31, 2018

Overall Rating

I have read the previous reviews and want to say that Ainsworth was a lovely small park tucked away from the road with lots of greenery. It was a little confusing getting to the park initially because the road is still closed for repairs from the big Eagle Creek fire they had less than a year ago- but it should be opened very soon. U... more

“Awesome site in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge ”

Reviewed Jul 30, 2017

Overall Rating

We loved our stay at Ainsworth! The park itself is in the middle of a beautiful forest and has a wide variety of large, well-spaced sites. Our site (B7) was a great pull-through that was level and spacious with both shade from the pine trees and a sunny large picnic table and fire pit. The park is very dog-friendly - many campers broug... more

“I expect better at state parks”

Reviewed Apr 22, 2017

Overall Rating

Most state park RV parks have nice big spaces and plenty of peace and quiet. This one has neither. The spots are relatively small, so if your RV is big, make sure to get a pull-through. The biggest issue though, is the noise. This park is next to a busy road which is next to a train track which is next to a freeway. This is ... more

“Great park within easy drive of eastern Portland”

Reviewed Jun 10, 2016

Beautiful small park on the banks of the Columbia River a few miles east of Portland. We arrived on the Sunday evening of Labour Day weekend, to find a few sites left. Easy, well-marked access from Interstate 84. The sites were all easy to park our and a friend's fifth wheels, and offer full services and clean washrooms. This park host... more
