“Another nice Linn County Park”
Reviewed Apr 24, 2016
Waterloo is another of the little known Linn County Parks. This one is located along the shore of the South Santiam River but the river is not easily accessed from the campground. There is a boat launch, fishing platform, and and frisbee golf course in the day use section of the park.
There are 60 sites that are open year around (A loop) and another 60 that are only open during peak season (B loop.) All of the sites are back-in asphalt drives with a separate concrete pad for the picnic table and fire pit. Most of the sites have water and 30A electric. My price reflects the senior discount AND the buy two, get a third free discount that was valid in the 2015/2016 off season. Regular price is $30 for the W/E sites. You can't get the senior discount online - you must call them to reserve. Good luck getting them to answer the phone!
Each loop has a restroom building that has three separate shower rooms. The showers are free, timer-less, and have adjustable flow and temperature. The shower rooms and restrooms are not heated.
The sites are easy to access with approach angles appropriate to the one-way travel on the loop. The driveways are quite level side-to-side with minimal slope back to front. The sites have no shrubbery or trees separating them. The grass was nicely mowed and trimmed. There are enough trees around that using solar would be problematic in the handful of "tent" sites. (The only difference between a tent site and an RV site is the water & electric service.)
There appears to be some individuals that float from one empty site to another that left me wondering about safety and security when the park is lightly used. We also had a fellow that came by every day to sort through the trash for anything of value. This issue may not be an issue, but was my biggest concern.
