Suggestions for Portland, OR

Hello all! We have so appreciated all the suggestions that were shared when I last wrote back in August. We are now officially retired and living in our 19ft Bambi with our golden retriever, Sailor.

It has been a crazy month because we had to delay the fun part and travel from Montana to Connecticut (in the Bambi of course) to help my husbands 90 & 92 year old parents for almost 3 weeks. We are now heading back across the country to the west coast (Washington & Oregon). I promise to post pictures, reviews for sites we stayed in and shake down stories later once in Oregon for a few days.

Question now is has anyone stayed anywhere near Portland, OR before? We are meeting family there for a few days and want to stay on for a couple of days to do some needed repairs and restocking. Any help here would be great!

Oh, one of the best suggestions for our trip that we got from this forum...AllStays app! Love the darn thing! Thanks to all...

Cheers
Jo, David & Sailor

yes. Go to www.reserveamerica.com. Search on Champoeg State Park. It's a little Southwest of Portland and located in Wine country.

Champoeg State Park is awesome, highly recommended. If you have to be closer to town or that park isn't open when you want to camp, we did stay at another private RV park in Tualatin. Not spectacular by any stretch, too many long term residents, but the laundry room was very clean and the rest rooms / showers were pristine. Those things are important if you are camping dry (e.g. in a winterized trailer), as we were at that time. Here's a link to reviews on TripAdvisor: https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Re...n.html#REVIEWS

Whenever we head that way we stay at Crown Point. Not fancy but very clean and close to groceries etc. They also give the Passport America discount which always helps.

Whenever we're in the Portland area we stay at Roamers Rest rv park www.roamersrestrvpark.com in Tualatin.

Now a bit farther out in McMinnville is Olde Stone Village RV Park www.oldestonevillage.com they are right next to the Spruce Goose . www.evergreenmuseum.org

gandttimes, Thanks I presume this is your reference.

http://crownpointrvpark.com/

I'm always looking for close in getaways and this is a great location and an easy drive to Portland from the East.

wando1997, you might also look in the Dundee/Newberg area (Just S of Portland), west and across the river from Champoeg SP. There are a number of RV parks (in the google search) and you're in the heart of wine country.

Note Oregon State Parks are the best!

Bob

Old Stone is a very nice park and close to McMinville which has great restaurants and wine tasting. Roamers rest or Pheasent ridge is as close to Portland as you can be, but not as nice. Nice enough though.

We stayed in the McMinnville area in August for a couple of weeks.....with last minute reservations....risky in mid August. Champoeg SP near Newberg is always great, especially B Loop.
It is reasonably close to I5.

Olde Stone Village RV Park in McMinnville is very good. Evergreen Museum next door to Olde Stone Village RV Park will let you dry camp in the rear of the parking lot for a night or two. I would avoid Willamette Wine Country RV Park in Dayton.

I was in Portland in August (not camping) and had absolutely amazing meal at Beast if you decide to go into town for a splurge dinner. It is a fixed course dinner served at a community table - you can look up each weeks menu on their website.
White Rose was my favorite winery outside Dundee.
