  • Beautiful! Absolutely beautiful area! The staff are so kind and there are so many activities to do. The only downside is the trains that pass by every hour and a half even at night so sleeping isn't really one of the activities that take place.
  • Very pretty park. Water tastes bad. Had to use bottled water for drinking and cooking. Rented a boat at the marina, prices aren't to bad. Had lots of fun on the lake.
  • It was a very nice campground! It was well maintained, very clean,and there was shade in all the sites. Also, the sites were large and not piled on top of one another. A great experience.
  • Now this is my favorite place to camp with kids. I was definitely surprised how nice and welcomed the camp host were. Now it's number one campground in Oregon for me. Wish it would be a bit closer to Portland.. I love everything about this campground.
  • Great park. The bathrooms need some updating but everything else was great. Wide open sites with lots of common space. 2 rv dump sites and 1 trash compactor.
