Looking for Portland Oregon RV parks...

I am considering livining in my Airstream for a year while renting out my home in the Portland area. One of the deciding factors would be finding a situation that is desirable. I have done lots of Google searches looing for parks in my area, and keep wonder if I am missing something. Are there any parks that aren't just concrete and trailers lined up? Or is that just in my imagination? I would reallly love to find a piece of land somewhere to purchase and ultimatley build a small permanent living space... but during the hunt, I thought this might be a good alternative. Any ideas? Thanks, Pam

I know this isn't an RV park, but I've camped at Silver Falls State Park, and it is awesome. I think you have to move sites after two weeks though, so I'm not sure how that would work, but they have full hook ups and really spacious sites.

Check out the RV section of Portland's craigslist. Several times I have seen private parties offering RV space (usually for just one RV) for quite reasonable rates. It is also free to post that you are looking for an RV spot. Never hurts to try.

I don't know if you need to be right in the Portland area or not. One place that you might check out is the Lake Merwin Campers Hideaway. This park is just a bit East of I5 in the Woodland area. They have RV lots for sale that you can park you RV on. If I recall correctly there is a rule that says that you can only live on site for up to something like 270 days per year. A couple of years back they had some parcels for as little as $5k. I suppose that may have changed by now but who knows. The sites have full hooks ups. There are restrooms in the area, a store and a boat launch on Lake Merwin.

Thanks for the replies! I looked up Silver Falls and I really want to go there! I have looked into Camp Merwin and think it would be great. Unfortunately I work south of Portland and need to be close for a couple more years. I am currently looking on Craigslist and already found a couple of things, but they were too far away. It gives me hope that I might find something, so I will keep this on my radar. Thanks again for your input! I love this forum.....

Anyone else???

I stayed in Silver Falls for two weeks in 04, and every day got up and ran, or walked the trail that passes 10 waterfalls. It is an amazing place. Just last week we checked the internet to make reservations and it showed everything booked. Then, we took a chance and called. Perhaps because we made a solid two week reservation, they gave it to us. I noticed that they don't have any first come first served this time of year, but some sites say "non-reservable", so I'm imagining that they keep those for longer stays if you call. If you go, you will not be disappointed. It is so clean, and beautiful, and a not too long drive to Portland.
