Portland area recommendations

We will be leaving Newport, OR on Tuesday and heading up to Portland before we will have to turn back east and head toward home. I would appreciate recommendations of good RV parks/nice places in that area. We would not be there for more than 2 days, maybe 3.

We stayed at the Cascade Locks/Portland East KOA and got no sleep due to the train tracks immediately behind the campground. Freight trains ran all night and sounded their horns for crossings on each side of the campground. I think this is a problem all along the Columbia river valley. The trains are coming out of the container terminal near Portland. Might be a good idea to ask about noise before you commit.

We use Ainsworth State Park, near Troutdale, about 30 minutes of town west on I-84. Very scenic near waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge. Has some pull ins for big rigs and full service. It's a no reservation campground so beat to get in early afternoon.

Try Jantzen Beach Rv park. Very nice park with a lot of full timers.

We stayed at Paradise Point SP in Washington. 25 miles north of Portland. Some road noise because you're close to I-5, but not bad at night.

We will also be going that way from Newport in a few weeks, where did you end up staying and how was it?
I was looking online @ Portland Fairview RV Park or Sandy Riverfront RV Resort, both a little bit east of Portland, anyone have any info about these two parks?
Thanks

We are at Columbia River RV Park. It is a nice clean park. Mostly asphalt and concrete with well manicured grass between the sites. No shade. It is right on the river but you can't see the river from the RV park due to a concrete wall between the park and the road. It is very near the airport but the noise hasn't bothered us since we've had the AC on since we got here.

I'd say it is fine if you want to explore Portland but if you want to relax with some shade, it would not be my choice. We are leaving Friday and heading back east. The traffic on I-5 and 205 around here has been awful. These roads seem very old and not up to the volume of traffic.

We've stayed at Jantzen several times. Nice place. The drive up and down I-5 can be harry, but Portland is a kind of crazy place anyway. Lots of narrow streets.

Both Jantzen and Columbia river RV park are directly over the flight path for Portland International
ainsworth is nice but 30+ minutes away.

I like 99 RV park in Vancouver. It's easy on and off the 5 and you can be downtown in 10 minutes. Plus they are very reasonably priced.

My Daughter lives on the east side of Portland, East of the 205 and South of 84, so we are trying to find something close to that area. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Sandy RV in Troutdale would be a good choice,

There is a website for Portland area campgrounds that might give you some more options.
Portland Oregon Camping
That part of portland can have a lot of traffic. Still think Ainsworth is best option, once your on 84 its not that far.
