Oregon is a delightful place to spend the summer. Whether you’re exploring a big city like Portland, the high-desert town of Bend or the charming port city of Astoria, there is something for everyone. Although we shy away from big cities, we were happy to make an exception for the 2017 Solar Eclipse. With limited options for RV camping in Portland, Oregon, we ended up staying at a great RV park in Fairview.
Portland Fairview RV Park
Pulling up to the entrance of the park, it’s hard to believe there are over 400 seasonal, monthly and short term sites. We stayed in a short term full hookup site (#75) near the entrance of the park. There is enough room in the pull thru site to park two camper vans and a tow car.
The social calendar at Portland Fairview RV Park was packed in August. We attended the Solar Eclipse viewing party as well as karaoke night where we met quite a few full timers. The fun thing about staying at campgrounds or parks is getting to meet new people at these types of events.
This RV park does have special regulations for RVs. “Only clean, modern, fully self-contained RVs are allowed. The Park reserves the right to refuse admission of vehicles not meeting Park standards. Rigs 10 years & older require approval from management.”
There were quite a few luxury Class A motorhomes during our stay.
RV Park Amenities
The grounds and facilities are well maintained with clean bathhouses through the park that require a key code for entry. There is a pool near the entrance to the park with a water aerobics class every morning during the week. Near the pond is the fitness center, which we didn’t use since we have a gym membership.
Free wifi is provided, but we didn’t need to use it since we were able to get Verizon LTE service. Note: the data was slow without the weBoost signal booster.
Leo had plenty of grass to walk on throughout the park and a nice patch of grass to lay on in our campsite.
The thing we like the most about this RV park is the location. It’s a short drive to Downtown Portland, Outside Van, PDX airport, and of course Costco. Surprisingly, there wasn’t as much airport noise as we expected, but there was train noise throughout the day.
