A very high quality RV park walking distance to the fabulous Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in McMinnville in NW Oregon.
- Site quality = 4.5/5
Excellent sites for a private park. All sites are spacious, level concrete areas, either back-in or pull-through with FHU (50Amp/water/sewer) plus cable TV, a nice concrete “sitting area” with picnic table and a slice of green and tree between each site. All sites are long enough for just about any sized-RV and some, particularly the “outer” back-in sites, have green views -> sites #265-271 back-up to a very large grassy area, sites #229-238 have lovely views of the Museum out the back and sites #228-221 have nice grassy areas in the back. Only minor ding is lack of privacy. As with most private parks sites are lined-up next to each up with no real barrier in-between. However the quality and greenery is top-notch.
- Facilities = 4.5/5
Very good facilities. The showers are individual shower/bathroom stalls with very large walk-in showers and good space to hang clothing/towels. All are kept spotlessly clean. Only ding is they have a tad older feel and the water pressure was on the low side.
- Amenities = 5/5
Very nice amenities all-around. The park has a clean laundromat/lounge area with sofa/TV and books for you to read while you wash. Three new laundry machines at $1.25 per load. There is also a nice, heated pool, a small golf putting area, gazebo/BBQ area, sports court and playground. On-site WiFi is free and works very well except at really high-load times. Can’t really think of anything they missed here.
- Location = 5/5
For visiting McMinnville & the surrounding area the location is excellent. You are walking distance (on a nice, green path) to the lovely Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum and only a few miles to downtown McMinnville. Easy driving to no end of wineries and restaurants in the surrounding Willamette Valley.
- Pet friendliness = 2.5/5
Good spot for doggie, but with some specific dings. The park has a very large (really lovely) green field behind sites 265-271 for walking with doggie plus you are just next-door to the Museum which also has extensive grounds for walking. Poo bags provided on-site. The two main “dings” are that the park does not accept “attack” breeds (which they list as Pit Bull, Chow, Doberman Pinscher, German Shepherd, Rottweiler, and (very surprisingly) Blue Heeler), plus they will only accept 2 dogs if their *combined* weight is under 50 lbs. This latter rule is very restrictive for multi-dog owners and the only real mar (for dog owners) in an otherwise excellent park.
Overall rating = 4.3
BONUS ALERT: Camp within walking distance of the fabulous Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum!
Summary: If you’re looking for a high quality private park in a great location it really doesn’t get much better than this. This place scored super-high on rvparkreviews and it definitely delivered. The entire park is clean, green & manicured with large concrete sites and “sitting areas” separated by nice slices of grass and trees. Like most private RV parks there is not much separation or privacy between sites, but the park makes up for it with well-sized sites and decent views, especially from the “outer” sites to either a grassy field (sites 265-271) or to the Aviation Museum (sites 229-238). The amenities are great with good, usable WiFi (free), small clubhouse (lounge), modern laundromat, heated pool, sports court and playground. Location is also top-notch with the fabulous Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum just walking distance away and the town of McMinnville with it’s restaurants and extensive wineries just a few miles down. Only significant “ding” is they have rather restrictive dog rules, esp. for multi-dog owners (see above). Turn-over/occupancy in the RV park was high when we were there (even after the big week-end) so it’s probably a good idea to book ahead if you decide to stay here. We’re not typically “private RV park people”, but we appreciated this well-kept park and really enjoyed the location. If you’re coming to the area to visit the Museum & Willamette Valley Wineries, this is definitely the best option in town.
Extra Info: Good Verizon signal (3 bars of 4G), plus very good free on-site WiFi. Sites cost $35/night ($199/week) for FHU+cable. Total 71 sites. 10% discount for Good Sam’s members. On-site laundromat.
