This park is average. The park is nice looking (lots of trees) and in a lovely area. The spaces are average. The staff very nice and helpful. We stayed only one night while going to the coast. We stayed on the 4th of July weekend and the park was full. Because of the busy weekend the restrooms were dirty. The pool water was cloudy (so my grandson did not go swimming), The trains were disturbing (but we were warned). I think this park would have been fine if it had not been a holiday weekend. All in All this would only be a one night stay park for us. Some of the spaces would be a little tricky for BIG rigs, because of the trees. Verizon work well. Bring ear plugs.

Our group tent camped in the back part of the campground under huge trees. It was very peaceful. Though the infamous train went through the campground - it only came by once or twice. Maybe we were lucky or the tracks weren't as busy that night. Either way we enjoyed the night we were there. The bathrooms were clean and suitable for our groups needs.

If you don't mind freight trains just yards from your camp site all day/night, then its pretty okay. There is a playground for the kids and the bathrooms are nice. The pool and hot tub were closed, appeared they weren't open for the season. If your headed to Multnomah Falls, and looking for a place for one night, with easy road access, this is a good location. I do recommend taking exit 46 not 44 when headed west. Exit 44 is unclear with poor, off highway, weird routing.

Room Tip: As far away from the RR tracks as possible, turn on your RV A/C onto high to drown out some of the n...

I have been camping in the Gorge for years. If you want to be in the Gorge you will have to be by a train. Love this place! The people that work there are great! Beautiful large trees, near the waterfalls.

Can't wait to go back. Were here on our way to California and had a great stay. Green green green environment. Maybe because we are prairie folk, but the atmosphere was wonderful.

RV sites are small but good condition. Pool is older but adequate. Washroom facilities were good.

This is a wonderful place to stay and see the waterfalls, hike, enjoy the Columbia River Gorge. There is sooo much to see and experience here in the Gorge. I am often shocked how people complain about the trains, they travel the length of the Columbia River no the fault of the KOA the trains are on both sides of the river the whole way (Washington and Oregon). The complaints on bathrooms, these workers clean the bathrooms at least four times a day. Not much more can be done except to station someone to stand in the bathrooms. This is a real campground not a resort with no trees and just cement pads, grass doesn't grow in a forest under full cover of firs. This campground is in the middle of the Cascade Mountains!!!! So enjoy the Gorge, hike enjoy the fresh air here in Oregon! If this isn't what you are looking for move on down the road and enjoy the train somewhere else, gives all of us that love it here more room by the way which there is plenty of here.

Room Tip: The front office tries to keep everyone as far from the train as possible, others ask to enjoy the t...

If you don't care about sleeping through the night, the lack of grass anywhere, the tiny swimming pool or the small, dirty, out of date bathrooms, you should be fine. If any of those things matter to you, you should find someplace else to go. The playground is decent size but the ground cover is plain dirt, as it is throughout the campground leaving our kids dirty after just 5 minutes of play. The bathroom was constantly dirty with bits of toilet paper all over the floor. The showers looked like they would not be out of place at the grungiest state park. But worst of all was the train. Constantly, 24x7. Even at 3am. The train is literally next door to the campground. Probably only 50 feet away. The noise from the whistle in indescribable. This is not something you get used to. When the train goes through, as it does at least 10 times a day the entire campground shakes.
I've often stayed at state parks. When you pay $14 a night, you don't expect too much and so I never fault those campgrounds. But when you pay more than $60 for a cabin you expect a little more, and usually KOA delivers. Not this time.

Room Tip: Try to be as far away from the train tracks as possible. And bring ear plugs.
