We actually visited this campground a year ago to see if it looked good for camping near Portland which is 15 minutes away. The people in the office were very friendly and it 'looked' fine. So, we scheduled a trip and asked for a site in "I" which was grassy and open but were given T19 which was a pull through and on dirt. Once your bump out is out along with your neighbors on both sides, it is like being in a sandwich. We never unpacked our chairs or rug because we didn't spend any time outside the unit because there was no space. There are technically fire rings available but if you started a fire you would have either set your unit or your vehicle on fire it was so close. The roads are dirt and are full of holes, and when it rains there is standing water everywhere to the depth that we had to jump off our last step in order to get out. The beach area is okay but be sure to wear water shoes because it is slimy and squishy. There are a lot of seasonal sites and some are not too neat. The campground is also on a flight pattern for a local airport so there are planes coming in for a landing every 20-40 minutes 24/7. If your only expectation is to be close to Portland, then it might work out. But, for us, we will look elsewhere for $57.50 per night.
