Best campground

We have stayed here many times. 10 years ago was one of our favorites. Our families came from all over Oregon and Washington, even California. We came from Missouri. What an amazing family reunion. The park rangers were so nice. They had informed classes about animals in the forest. The Jr rangers program for the children was wonderful and hands on.

Lovely spot right on the river

I enjoyed my night at this campground. The spots by the river offer lovely views. Those in the interior, not so much. There were many large rigs here. The walking/running trail at the back of the campground is in good condition and meanders along for 3 miles, 1.5 in either direction from the campground. The bathrooms are clean, warm, showers are hot. Mirrors and an electric outlet let you use your hairdryer in the spacious bathroom. I hooked up to 30 amps and it worked great. Water was off during my stay. There is okay wifi, better than I expected, but a little slow. I checked in using pay by envelope after consulting the board at the entrance for available spots. Grocery, gas, a brewery and a cafe were nearby. I stayed in winter, but a nice beach is right next door. There is a playground in the center of the camp and a huge frisbee golf course off the trail. Kids will enjoy the woodsy areas off the hiking path.

Quiet, scenic with the romantic sound of trains passing through in the night. I highly recommend.

spring creek campgrond and dispersed camping

There is  a small campground with 6 sites mostly good for campers or tent in  a grove of trees with a vaulted  outhouse.  in the surrounding aria   there are plenty of dispersed campsites that can hold any size RV  Around the form almost completely  shaded to full sun. It is a designated ATV aria with tons of trails used by hikers and horses in the fall it is a favorite spot for hunters

Great little stop!

We stayed here in the off season, it’s first come first served parking, which ended up being really great for us. We got to park with a view of the river and away from other RVs. The spaces are large, there is a bathroom and showers on site. There is a nice walking path, and loads of grass and beach and places to walk your dog. We all had a very nice overnight experience.

Near the I-82 Bridge Oregon side

There are few campgrounds near Umatilla, OR and when we were there several public facilities were closed. We very rarely ever stay at RV parks but it was getting late and we had just driven on 395 through the snow and fog. There were tent sites available for $20 so we checked in at the office to be assigned our spot. Unfortunately, someone was there who hadn’t paid so we were told to choose another. They had the better spot but we just took another as they were in a tent and probably freezing to death.

During the night, some people camping in their truck would start the engine every hour to keep warm plus the truck traffic over the I-82 bridge was noisy. This was in late October 2020 during a cold snap.

The only good thing is that the flush toilets were clean and you could take showers using coins. There was a key code for the bathrooms and free WiFi. There were shade trees and a nice lawn area, but the area with hookups was further from the traffic.

We would probably not stay here again.

Clean and accessible

Be advised that if you go in the off-season the spots are first come first served. We were disappointed to find there was no water hookup as they had already winterized. It would have been nice if that had been included in the outgoing message so we could have gotten water else wear…. as the nightly rate was the same with or without. Other than that it was a clean and comfortable park with a great 2.8 mile trail for biking and/or walking along the river. The trail has a great little microbrewery that serves pizza so bring your wallet! If you venture down to the Rivers Edge Lodge you’ll find the trail continues a bit further along the river out in front. I would give this a 5 star but my camping style requires more trees and privacy but as far as open RV Parks this was very nice. We were in spot 27 which sits sideways to the river with a nice view.

Clean and quiet

The Umatilla Marina & RV Park is a small park on the edge of Oregon and Washington along the Columbia River. The park is clean, well maintained, and has water, electricity, and a dump station. 

The marina has a large parking lot and spots to clean fish. There is a nice park and swimming area for kids.

The McNary Dam and Fish window are a few miles down the road and well worth a visit (when open).

Decent camping. Small camp sites.

Stayed Oct. 9th-11th 2020. Decent area. we stayed in site #49. super small. our table was within 6 ft of the next spots sewer drain. the camp spots in the middle of the camping around had terrible grass and no trees. camping stops around the perimeter had good grass and trees.

Beautiful campground too close to Intestate

We stayed here in a tent site (no hookups) on our way back to Portland from Nevada. As an overnight cut-off campground, it’s lovely: Nice-sized sites set in beautiful Oregon forest (we’d been out of state for a couple weeks and REALLY appreciated the trees); clean bathrooms and showers; long “tent” sites that allowed us to back in our 18ft trailer without uncoupling for the night.

However, it’s right on the interstate. While you kind of tune it out after a while, the road noise is constant and definitely interferes with any sense of “wilderness”.

Historic Camp.... 50ft from the freeway. 👎🏼

So much history in this area. A nice little camp with full hookups, cabins and tent spots. LITERALLY right next to the freeway. Camp host was not friendly and the noise never stopped. Keep on going down the road and look for something else if you’re looking for a true outdoors experience.
