I’ve stayed at this camp ground a hand full of times. I live maybe 15 20 minutes away and it’s always great! The camp ground is a good size with many tent and RV sites. If you get the right spot it can be a very private experience and you could be close to the river. Otherwise some sites can be kinda small and close. But there’s many sites to chose from and gets pretty popular with a lot of traffic. Showers were recently re painted during last visit and the bathroom is ok.
This place is awesome for family camping. They have a playground and well maintained showers and bathrooms(very clean). The real magic here though is the sound of the river as you drift off to sleep.
Located on the Hood River, right off Highway 35 near the small town of Parkdale, this park was an unexpected pleasant find. The sites used to be reservable, but are now first come, first available. The camp host was very friendly as was the resident cat, Huck, who came right up to us and hung out for a while. The sites offer a varying amount of privacy; the East Fork loop is more of an open space, with the sites close together and closer to the road (you will hear road noise). But, the sites along the Hood River (West Fork Loop) are separated by trees and much nicer (and a little more expensive but worth it). Site 82, a sort-of pull through, is right on the river. Showers were nice with lots of hooks; restrooms were reasonably clean but only had cold water. Only negative: the dumpster was overflowing; hopefully, this was just left over from the Memorial Day weekend. Nice, large day use area with a playground. Excellent internet/cell coverage.
The camp is pretty well maintained, but the sites are small and right on top of each other. The river is great to have close. There is also a day use area with playground. The location is convenient to Hood River.
