“Peaceful sites on the Hood River”

Reviewed Sep 27, 2016

Overall Rating

We'd read that Tucker County Park was big rig friendly. We pulled in, and the park host approached us with huge eyes. "Your RV is.... really big," he said, looking it up and down (we're just shy of 33'). He invited us to hop in his golf cart, and he showed us some potential options. There were quite a few we could fit in, but after seeing the park for ourselves, we probably wouldn't recommend this campground for rigs over 40'. There ARE sites that will fit rigs this size, but getting into them is tricky, due to a steep hill and some sharp corners.

We loved Site G, with easy access to the bathrooms, a glimpse of the Hood River out our back window, a fair bit of privacy, and access to the Hood River walking trail (wear your boots! It's steep in places!). We could open our window to hear the rushing river, and it drowned out the sounds of other campers.

The sites only have water, no electric or sewer. There are a few sites with plenty of open skies for solar; we elected a shaded spot to keep cool, and just ran our generator about an hour a day. There's a 7-day limit, officially, although the park host indicated it might be possible to stretch it out by a few more days if we'd asked nicely.

Hood River is a fantastic, adorable town, and this is one of the most affordable nearby options, at about 15 minutes away. If you rely on internet, bring your booster, because that was the only way we could get decent internet. The park host also mentioned the sites deeper in the park, which tended to be larger, also tended to have worse cell phone reception. Staying near the front is probably the best bet.

“Convenient Location For Playing In Hood River”

Reviewed Sep 14, 2015

Overall Rating

We booked this park because it is only 5 miles from downtown Hood River.

The park has 3 loops with the top two loops are good fro RV's and a few spaces in the bottom loop will work for RV's. We stayed in the bottom loop at site 54. We chose this site because it was easy to get in and we were able to park next to friends at site 79 and share a water connection.

Our site 54 (and the neighboring site 79 which fit a friends Airstream) do not border the river, but we could hear the river sounds. Plenty of good trees for hammock hanging as well. The sites bordering the river on the lower loop are tent sites.

Bathrooms and showers are readily available. No quarters or timers and plenty of hot water. Showers in the lowest loop are the newest and in the best condition.

The park hosts are very nice, helpful and came by daily. They had great advice on sight selection and recommendations for in town. We had an issue when we first arrived and the water spigot broke. Onsite help was there in minutes and corrected the issue.

Cell phone coverage was good and with our booster excellent.

We heard about a gun range across the road from the park, but with our location we didn't hear it.

The Western Antique Aeroplane & Automobile Museum is just down the road and we had a number of airplanes going in and out out all weekend for their big fly in. It was fun to see all the old planes flying overhead. It was also a short walk to huckleberry milkshakes - yummy!

Hood River is a cute little town with lots of character and a few good brew pubs. Of course lots of fruit stands all around for When the wind is up (most of the time) the world class kite boarding and windsurfing are fun to watch. We enjoyed Pfreim, Double Mountain and Logsdon.
