Large TT/Encore Campground

Up at the base of Mt Hood, this large resort style campground (operates by Thousand Trails/Encore) offers various areas for camping. There are full RV hookup sites, tent sites, group tent sites, E/W RV hookups and cabins/yurts throughout. It seems most, of not all, RV sites have room for at least a small tent or more and they do allow that. There also is a few group tent sites that I saw.

As for amenities, the campground has a small store that sells the basics and some RV parts, a deli/restaurant, playground and pool.

There are trails to get to the Salmon River, not difficult by any means.

Being just a dozen miles or so from Government Camp, there are so many things to do when you want to get out of the campground.

It’s open year round, and many folks use Mt Hood Village RV Resort as a basecamp for activities for all seasons.

Overall, I enjoyed my stay, though the limited restroom and showers are oddly placed, with access only by walking the loop. There are no trails to get to them, so if you are at the other end, it’s a small hike. The plus is that the restrooms are clean and well stocked.

Great location

This is one of the largest state park campgrounds in Oregon! Nice location near Astoria and Seaside, with lots of things to do and explore.

There are different “loops” available, with many RV sites. We were the only tent campers we could see in our RV loop, the sizes vary, but their website gives you a general size idea. All the loops have restroom/shower facilities that were regularly stocked and cleaned.

There is a lake within the park that you can boat or go fishing. Also, there is access to the beach right in the park. This beach is one of the few that allow motor vehicle use.

Check out the old military sites and the shipwreck while at the park, and head in to Astoria for a day of exploration!

Nice park, just noisy

A typical KOA, with a store, cabins, deluxe cabins, tent sites and RV sites. What they don’t tell you is the freight train runs about every 30 minutes including overnight. The first time was a big surprise, but we got used to it.

The facilities were stocked and mostly clean. Unfortunately, campfires were not allowed when we stayed, but it wasn’t their fault. There were also a ton of yellow-jacket bees, but they worked hard to control them with effective traps.

Very Nice KOA

Don’t miss this little gem on the Oregon coast! They have a few full hookup RV sites that have an unbeatable view of Alsea Bay and the Pacific Ocean, but they reserve fast. Clean and private bathrooms and showers, a small laundromat and a great little store that has almost everything that you forgot to bring complete the site. For those with families, there is a playground. Doesn’t get 5 stars because you aren’t allowed to have fires after 10PM.
