Well Run State Park But a Lot of Interstate Noise

Our GPS wanted to take us up to Exit 48 on I-5N, but we followed the website instructions and the State Park signs off I-5 and took Exit 45B. You will go through the rest area before coming to the gate leading into the campground (CG) areas. Check in was super easy with a very informative brief by the park ranger. We were in the F Loop, which is in the far back of the park. We proceeded to back-in site F36 with 30/50 AMP and water. Our rate reflects the Oregon Disabled Veteran’s Pass, where veterans with a disability rating, regardless of state residency, get 10 nights free camping per calendar month in OR State Parks. The back-in was interesting as the asphalt pad has a bit of a 'C' curve turn to it but we were able to navigate after a couple of adjustments. This site is one of the most spacious in the park with huge trees, which we had to move our rig over a bit so we could get our slides out. However these shade trees were a blessing as they protected us from the unusually high temperatures the Pacific Northwest was experiencing. The park’s CG areas run along I-5 so you are going to get road noise regardless of your site. We used our sound machine at night so the road noise wasn’t too bad, but its definitely noticeable when you’re outside. Loop A is tents and yurts. Loops B, C, D, & E have the FHU sites, but the sites in the B & C loops are crowded together. D & E loops have decks and large propane tanks with fairly new travel trailers, which are currently being used to provide shelter to people displaced by the 2020 wildfires. Loop F has only water & electric but sites are better spread out and worked fine for our short stay. Each area had a shower house. There is a laundry, but the machines were not working during our stay. We enjoyed taking our pups for walks on the multiple trails in and around the park. We experienced a power outage and the park rangers were on it to include ensuring everyone was kept informed on the status.
