We frequently stop at this lovely little park right on the Columbia River for a picnic lunch. It has a campground, picnic tables, restrooms, even tennis courts. It's also very well maintained.
this park is spectacular being right on the river and the current upgrade to the playground is just beautiful.
We wandered down to the park to eat our lunch and were amazed at the extent of the park and how the grounds are so well kept.
Went Aug 5th 2016. Pulled up before 11am with 9 adults and 9 children we were able to get 2 sites but we had 2 more adults coming so we wanted a 3rd site. As we waited there was a male and female working and they (mostly her) where telling us that we had to wait right up by the building (in the sun) and then kept saying they thought nothing would become available when finally we see that someone is packing up and we go ask if they are leaving and they say yes, we let the employees know and they said they will go ask so they do. When they return they say that there is a sewer issue close to that site and that they will have to close it. We begged if we could please stay there just use the site for sleePing and they said no then i asked if we could stay with our friends since we had so many kids we could make it work and they said no because they had this sewage problem due to too many people using their restrooms. At this point i felt that they were making up Any excuse to get us out of there because they could clearly see that we had 2 infants in diapers and 2 todlers in diapers that would not be using their toilets! It is now 1:30pm and They said we could come back the next day and get in line again "line starts at 6:30 :)" Not once did i stutter and not once did i say i did not understand, i said ok i will find somewhere to go they suggested sleeping in the walmart parking lot. I sat with my friends trying to find somewhere but everything was booked for the night hotels, campsites, everything booked. At this point it is close to 2pm and they come over agaIn With the maintenance guy who speaks Spanish to ask me in Spanish how many people are at the site, i said i understood perfectly well when they kicked me out and we are not staying. We drive off and luckily find a walk up site elsewhere we unload or truck into 2 buggies and walk forever in the sun put up 2 tents and then get a call from our friends saying that those employees left and new ones arrived and said the site was not closed and we could have it!!!! Uuugh!!!! We pack up tents load our stuff in buggies call for help cause we had no strength left and head back. This is The worst way to treat people i used to go here every year with my family and recommend this place to friends and family, never had an issue, now this will be the place i avoid going to and tell people to avoid!
We arrived on a Monday morning, and the park was about half full, it's Wednesday and it is completely full. It is very clean, green grass, water and power at each campsite, and nice, clean, big bathrooms and free showers. We are on day 3 of camping here and will definitely return in the future. The sites are spaced apart and while the grounds are patrolled regularly we have found everyone to be friendly. There is plenty of space for kids and bikes, and a private sandy beach to swim and lay out, volleyball, tennis and bad mitten nets set up. We also caught salmon, easily fishing from the shore. The prices are on the steep side but worth it if you want to be away from the crazyness of the standard campground, not worry about obnoxious drunk people, and have a less crowded, swimming/lake experience. Oh, the bathrooms and showers would be/are great for teenage girls and there is 1 large family style for parents with small kids. The only reason we gave it a 4 instead of 5 is that there are not very many shade trees and the sprinklers run longer than time posted (which is fine if your kids want to run through them). It's worth the short drive outside of town to check for availability since it's 1st come 1st serve.
We stayed here last year and i would have given it a 4 star then. We came back this year with family and left 2 days early being quite disappointed. This rv park is nicely spaced with campsites not being too crowded together but it is always full. It is frusterating that you can not make any sort of reservations. You never know for sure if you will have a place to stay when you get there. They "patrol" the park regularly ready to enforce the slightest of rules. We have yet to experience a night stay without one enforcement or another. Last year we were playing ball with our lab and were told they HAVE to be on a leash at all times. Our dogs are very well behaved and on a leash when not playing. It was frusterating to see smaller dogs running loose with no repremand but we tied up the dogs nonetheless. Another instance was while setting up our tent we were instructed to keep the tent inside the outlined dirt box. We had not even completed assembly by which we needed to move the tent to the level ground anyway. We felt like we could not fully enjoy our stay with walking and driving patrol wandering about all the time looking for activities to correct. The combination of the windy weather, fully booked park, loud 24/7 highway, and steep prices we decided to leave early. To end on a high note, their strict enforcement makes for a beautiful park and draws a calm family orientated crowd. I also like that they have no alcohol on the premises and nice paved lots. Maybe in the future they will make reservations available to make the journey worth it and maybe they can lessen their abrupt approach to the enforcement of rules.

Clean, perfectly manicured. Not much shade but views of the water are spectacular!
Love this park! Been going here for years! I do think they could lighten up on the dog leash policy when they are playing fetch or frisbee with their owners!
