"Nice, clean RV park with a large dog walk and small pool"

RV Ranch is a pretty standard RV park at a standard rate, well-positioned near Grand Junction to access its amenities. There is green space between all the sites (be aware that many of the sites are set up so front doors face each other, but not... Read more

"Backs up to city park with long bike trail"

At first glance, this RV park is nothing more than a parking lot on the side of the road. The sites are generally short and narrow enough that you have to park your tow vehicle/toad across the parking lot. There's no green space between the sites;... Read more

"Cute town and quiet park (except for the train whistle)"

This is a great little park, and we're super glad we stayed here. Arlington is a cute town with several restaurants (we tried all of them, and liked each) and a small grocery store (otherwise, it's 20 minutes to the closest larger town, so do all... Read more

"AWESOME free lot with blackberries, bike paths, and park access (plus mall!)"

We loved staying here! The lot was pretty empty during our stay (in early August), but the blackberry bushes were full to bursting, so we ate our fill. There's easy walking and biking access to a bike path right beside the parking lot, that leads... Read more

"Great spot, lots of green space"

This is a wonderful place to stay, right on the McKenzie River, with walking trails and tons of green space. The sites are full hook-up, and there's also a bathroom and laundry facility. Our cell-based internet was slow at times, but it worked... Read more

"Urban park with decent amenities"

This park is a pretty standard one, with a sizable store, a laundry facility, showers and bathrooms, and rows upon rows of RVs. There is a bit of green space between each, but their rules strictly forbid dogs from using them. Instead, there are 2... Read more

"Isolated location on the beautiful Columbia River"

We realized after we rolled in that we weren't quite prepared to be in Skamokawa for a week. The nearest laundry facility and grocery store is in Longview, and we weren't figuring on such a long drive. There is a restaurant and cappuccino food... Read more

"Peaceful sites on the Hood River"

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... Read more

"Blah park with a nice surprise"

At first glance, this park doesn't offer much to write home about. The sites are lined up in a large gravel field, with no trees, shade or privacy between spots. There is enough room to park a tow vehicle/toad for small to medium-sized rigs, but... Read more

"Cute place with easy access to Vancouver and Ridgefield"

If you're looking for a park that's near Vancouver/Portland but out of the city's hustle and bustle, this might be a good choice for you. It's a standard RV park with some limited privacy between spots. We found the sites to be plenty long... Read more
