Good for a one night stay
A good one night stay for travelling. Nothing special but it definitely worked for us. Might be a good point to explore the Columbia River area. The train does come by so be prepared but they are pretty open about that so there were no surprises.
Cascade Locks KOA
We stayed 3 days at this KOA. It has its pluses and minuses. Pluses are full hook up and we had a paved site. Distance from our neighbor wasn’t too bad. Lots of trees for shade, but also makes it dark inside your RV. Minuses were the noise. Highway 84 with trucks, a construction site across the street digging with large equipment, and the trains. They are right on the back border of the campground. They have to blow there horns when near the campground. Was woke up 4 times in the night from them with ear plugs in. If this doesn’t bother you this is the place for you.
Such a wonderful, fun place! The kids had so much fun swimming, riding bikes and playing around. Staff was all super friendly and we enjoyed talking with them all. The sites, bathrooms, showers and pool were all clean! We were camped along the main road in front of the park. We at first thought that to be worrisome, but the speed limit is low enough, that you don’t really hear much traffic. The train does run right on the other side of the park, you hear it yes, but it’s not a deal breaker. The cleanliness and other amenities of the campground are worth it!
Just Keep Driving
So, this is the first time I have ever left a review for a person, place, or thing. This town started out really sweet and cute. They even have a marathon that the locals run. Roads and turn-ins blocked off? No problem, we'll go around. People running/walking? Ok, we'll watch where we're going. Construction? Nice, the place is growing. However, when it comes to the only 2 gas stations in town? Hard pass. Neither of them allowed bathroom usage. Both had signs on their door that said "No public bathrooms. Please don't ask." I'm not below paying inside to use a bathroom. No one allowed public use of a restroom. Not even the restaurant we stopped at. We even offered to buy something. Everyone we encountered was just rude or irritated. I get it, we're tourists and not everyone enjoys tourists. I live in Boise, ID so I completely understand. But dang man. I don't know who hurt these people but it's enough for me to never stop here for anything unless it's a hospital. Even then lol I'd be hesitant.
No complaints, nice stay.
Short but sweet stay A basic cabin. Was clean and quiet other than the train at night. But I assume anywhere in the cascade locks will hear them. It didn’t bother me though. Part of the experience. Clean bathrooms and showers. Would definitely stay here again
