“Noisiest Campground we ever camped at!”

Reviewed Jul 31, 2018

Overall Rating

I should have really read the other reviews. This campground is in a great location (between Hood River and The Dalles), but oh my goodness our site was so noisy from highway noise it kept us up at night. We were in A6 which is perpendicular to the hwy which is up a small bank- but there are no mature trees to help deaden the sound. Th... more

“Great overnight spot along I84.”

Reviewed Jul 15, 2018

Overall Rating

Memaloose is a nice campground, but don’t expect river access or quiet. Nestled between I84 and the Union Pacific RR tracks, the park has both full hook-up sites (sewer, 30-amp electric and water) and tent sites. We were in site # A-12 which is close to the freeway and the road noise was constant. Maybe it’s better further from the r... more

“Noisy, windy, and not much to do”

Reviewed Jul 07, 2018

Overall Rating

The restrooms are clean, the views are pretty, and there's a small playground. Other than that, not much else to get excited about. This campground is located in-between an interstate and a busy railroad. Despite being right next to the Columbia, there's no way to cross over the tracks (legally) to get to the water. In addition, if you... more

First I want to say the noise level was not bad at all you could hardly notice the trains especially you cant hear the freeway . It was a nice small campground with beautiful sights to see. Was sad we had no access to the water :( but it was beautiful to look at . Only real bad issue was GPS and the damn exit . The exit says rest area ... more

“Good location for visiting Hood River. ”

Reviewed May 17, 2017

Overall Rating

Pretty state park, with nice views of the Columbia River—however (as others have mentioned) there is a bit of highway traffic and train noise in this state park. Even with the noise, which we found tolerable, we would consider returning the next time we visit the Hood River area. The highway traffic noise is noticeable through-out th... more

“Noisy”

This is a very pretty campground that is also very noisy. The road noise is so loud we didn't have to feel bad about running our generator as we couldn't even hear it! It did quiet a bit at night, though. All the sites and roads are asphalt and in good shape. Ours was fairly level. The "tent" sites are plenty long for an RV, our site ... more

Reviewed Aug 18, 2016

Mellow on the weekdays with mostly RV folk, and full on summer weekends with overnighters and tent campers, but quiet in the evenings. The hosts and rangers were super attentive and friendly during our stay and the bathrooms and showers were spotless. There aren’t any trails or activities inside the park, so plan on unhitching and driv... more

“One of the better places to stay when visting the Columbia Gorge/Hood River area”

Reviewed Sep 27, 2015

Overall Rating

This is probably the best (i.e., least bad) place to stay when visiting the Columbia River Gorge near Hood River, or The Dalles in Oregon. As other reviewers have indicated, this park is sandwiched in between the interstate (I-84) and the Columbia River and has a busy train track between the campground and the river itself. Unfortuna... more

Memaloose is a lovely park, thoughtfully laid out with great amenities and lots of elbow room. Lots of big shade trees, the Columbia River to the north and the Gorge on the other three sides. It was recommended to us by some seasoned RVers who said it was their favorite park in the whole USA. Since we live only an hour to the west near... more

This is a great campground if you pick the right site- and if you don't mind a little train noise. The campground is squeezed onto a piece of land between the highway and the Columbia River Gorge. This means that some sites (A1-A15) are right along the highway and get constant highway noise. It also means that the sites with water view... more
