The park was very secure, which we appreciated. We were escorted to our site, which had ample room for the rig (45ft class A) plus parking for our jeep. The grounds were well kept and you could tell they take pride in ownership. The only downfall is the highway noise but with earplugs I was able to sleep.
This pertains to the River house itself, not the park as a whole. There is only a community laundry room with limited hours, that you have to pay for. The house has ants and roaches, not a lot to be fair, but they are present. The ferrel cats in the neighborhood urinate on the furniture on the deck, making it difficult to enjoy that outdoor space, which is the best feature of the house. The small bedroom's only window with the ability to open has been painted shut, leaving no escape (against fire code). Don't put clothes in the dresser in the bedroom with the king bed, your clothes will reek of cat urine and you'll have to re-wash everything. It's impossible to cook in the kitchen without the smoke alarm going off incessantly. The dishwasher does not get the dishes clean and you'll have to rewash them by hand. There is no dedicated path to the river from the house, and the dropoff in the backyard is hazardous for young children. It's in a pretty setting with the trees and squirrels and the maintenance staff was really nice. The heating/cooling system works well.…
We stayed for a quick overnight. We were surprised that the park is literally on the river... the back in sites are literally on a hill on the river, no impediments. This was a real treat just to sit on the grassy hill and watch the water go by for a while. The location was perfect for an overnight, just a bit off the highway and near services. Very impressed with the staff! They are very hospitable and send out great communications. Even helped us figure out a nice place for date night dinner.
Upon arrival, Dan & Peg directed me to unhook my car from my coach in a narrow driveway, blocking other guests from accessing their sites. Then I was told I could not block the driveway and had to move. Really? How fast do you disconnect and reengage the transmission to move the car. Unfortunately, the car battery had drained and had to be jump started, which took about 7 minutes more. When I backed into site 87, it was so off level that after lowering jacks, 3 tires were off the ground. Really? It was low on the driver side, had a dip in the middle and slanted forward. Yes, I carry blocks, but park sites should be level. GoodSam is listed on their site, but they do not honor the membership discount. When I complained, Corina, property manager in Vancouver, called me, cautioning me not to be disrespectful to their staff. Really? She should have done damage control, apologized for poor service and misrepresenting the site. Instead, she repeatedly defended that the site is level. It might be good enough for a pull behind, which 99.9% of their occupancy is, where jacks are cranked down on the corners, but not on a Class A coach. They charge top dollar for unprofessional staff and poorly maintained sites.…
Rising River is a delightful RV Park! The staff are all very friendly, helpful and easy to reach for communication needs. The park is clean and inviting and the restrooms and showers are spotless. My husband is a Veteran and the respect shown for his service was marvelous! We recommend this park and look forward to our next stay!
They do everything right here. We live full-time in our motorhome and look for parks we want to return to. This is on the top ten list. After 4 years of travel and some bad/scary parks, we don't settle for anything but the best. If I write a good review you can bet it has met my picky standards!
Awesome park, beautifully maintained with well manicured landscape and the nicest staff I've ever met. Yes....they do have handicap ramp to the office,handicap parking and full service hookups, laundry, rec room, showers, including handicap shower and men's and women's restrooms. A gated community is very quiet and safe. You will love this gem in southern Oregon.
Horrible place to stay! In fact, it was so bad that we left the place because it was so terrible. No handicap spaces, horrible customer service, extremely uninviting. The lady at the front desk was so rude and acted as if asking for a handicap spot was a foreign concept.
Was best RV camp grounds I stayed during my week of travel. Staff was very friendly. Was offered tickets at a reduced price for Safri Park. Gives military discount. Staff offer a upgrade site that gave me a view of river out my back door. Thanks
This is a nice RV Park located just off the main road from Roseburg to Winston. It sits right on the Umpqua River; however there are a very limited number of spots with a view of the river. There is a path to the river with a park like setting that you can go enjoy that is very pretty. The park is bordered on the other side by a mobile home park and a small RV dealer. The staff here was exceptionally friendly and helpful. There is a small but well stocked store at the office if you need any RV supplies or travel trinkets. The bathroom and shower facilities were spacious and very clean! We had a pull through site in the middle of the park which was sufficiently sized for our RV. Here there were picket fences between the sites, but not a lot of privacy from your neighbors. The park has a security gate which they close at night which we appreciated. The turns from the highway to get to the entrance were tight for a large RV set up but manageable. The location served us well as we explored this part of Oregon, including a day trip to Crater Lake, and a day trip to Reedsport and Florence on the Oregon Coast. Wildlife Safari was also great fun and it was only 5 minutes away. Wi-fi was very spotty; most times we were unable to download at all. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would stay again if we return to Roseburg.…
