Tucker Park is located only a few miles south of Hood River and sits directly on the Hood River. The park offers campsites and a day use area with covered shelter. This is also a designated viewing area on the Oregon Cascades Birding Trail.
An otherwise good experience
We just returned from our 4 (shortened to 3) night stay at Tucker Camp, Hood River with our family and two dogs. The camp itself is beautiful. The camp hosts (two older men), not so much. Every day we were there we were harassed by the hosts concerning our dogs and every time we were told that they could kick us out and, "Wouldn't think twice about it". Every time I responded respectfully, which is probably why we were allowed to stay. Because of their intrusive and aggressive behavior, we packed up and left a day early. As we drove out of the park, one of the hosts (I believe his name was Tim) called out to me with one last snide and totally unnecessary taunt. Two small men with small power making the most of that. Beware.
Kicked out by the Sheriff without cause by a control freak camp host.
The park itself is nice and along the river, but the Host Steve is a control freak! I missing rules on some and not others. He lets some people get away with fires, while others are told they can’t have them. He threatens some people for not having their dogs on leash, while ignoring other non leashed dogs. Me,I was camped alone, quietly and hadn’t broken a single rule. The host Steve called the Sheriff on me and had me removed in the middle of my stay. They couldn’t site anything I had done wrong, but claimed they could refuse service to anyone. I had neither a fire, or a dog. If you not Steve’s BFB, beware!
Great little Park!
Love bringing my pooches here for a nice walk close to the woods and by the water! Never super crowded.
Great campground with the best hosts!
We have been coming to to Tucker Park for over 15 years. It was in a sad state until the "new" hosts took over about 4 years ago. Steve and his wife have really made Tucker Park awesome. We come from Baja for at least a week or two each year and they have made it feel like home. From the green grass to the clean bathrooms, they have really changed it!
Lovely little spot!
Good place to go on a hot day! It’s a little cooler than in Hood River ! Check this out! The Trainer (RN)* Personal Trainer, “One On One Only”
