I have reserved Lynden koa also for my first night with my 5.0 on 3/22. May stay an extra night too. Congratulations on your new escape! Looks like a few pickups at that time!
We will be tent camping there on the 23rd, then bringing our 21 escape back on the 24th and 25th. Hope we run into you!

I added your link to my bookmarks. We will keep an eye on the weather. Hopefully there is a break so we can get to Chilliwack!
You're welcome, but that page is just a news page for the area. You should probably keep an eye on Trip Check. The camera right by the I-5 Symbol I5-Symbol.JPG at the Oregon/California border is the general area of cameras you should check: TripCheck - Oregon Traveler Information

Coumbia Riverfront RV Park

This is the first place I ever stayed at with my motorhome rental last year in mid-April. I stayed there as it wasn't too far from Seattle for the first day's drive and I wouldn't have to worry about afternoon traffic through Portland. It's in Woodland WA, just before the border.

Columbia Riverfront RV Park

My site looked out over the river, it was quiet and very peaceful. Lots of grassy area in front and a nice sandy beach to walk along. My kitty Lucy enjoyed walking on the grass. The couple next to me would come there from Portland multiple times during the year as they liked it quite a bit. The first photo is at that site, along the river

The second photo is from the Mt Shasta KOA. I was there for two nights. The first night the trains didn't wake me, but they did the second. Guess I was more tired the first night. Regardless, I'd stay there again.

Bet you both are very exicted; congratulations! Love that Charles Kuralt quote someone here uses as their tagline. "Thanks to the Interstate Highway System, it is now possible to travel from coast to coast without seeing anything."

I-5 through WA is bad enough; to do so through Oregon as well is usually just too much for us. US 97 near The Dalles(or 197 to 97) might be worth considering.

On our return from picking up our trailer, we stayed at the Lynden KOA (WA), the Olde Stone Village (McMinnville OR ... very nice and walking distance to the air museum), and somewhere near Medford which had a great Mexican Restaurant within walking distance (Moon Mountain RV is also supposed to be good). In CA we stayed at Rolling Hills Casino, just south of Redding.

Last year while in Oregon, we stayed in Champoeg and loved it. Also stayed at Valley of the Rogue (also nice), and Premier RV in Redding (CA).


Prior to the NOG this year, we have reservations at Premier RV (Redding) again and at River Park RV (Grants Pass) before heading to Waterloo.

Considering it was the first one I had ever stayed at, I thought it was nice! It wasn't right on the freeway, so you didn't hear trucks all night long or the trains. I forget how far off, but not that far. Lovely farming area along the road.

This was the view from the other side of the place. One is of Mt Hood and I forget the other. Those of you in the Portland area can remind me which is Hood and what the other is. Maybe St Helens?
