Here is the park

River Mountain RV Park | Idanha, detroit lake, sisters,river mt rv

It is a very small RV park nestled under the trees and next to the Santiam River in Idanha, OR. I know we talked about being on the coast, but there is often morning fog that might block our view of the sky. They have FHU and 50 amp electric service, which is not available at many Oregon parks.

They currently have 3 astrology buffs who have reservations and a few full time residents, but the rest of the park is all ours if you reserve your space before August 15 of this year. Rates are $30/day or $150/week for FHU and $20/day or $100/week for dry camping.

You will need to call the park directly 503-854-3275 before August 15th of this year and tell Laurie or Jim Preston that you are an RV Mutant. Laurie asks that you call between 8-10 am or 6-9 pm PDT. They accept all 4 major credit cards and only require payment for the first day ($30 or $20) to hold your spot. Deposits are not refundable but are transferable, so I pretty much guarantee that you will get your $ back if you have to cancel. After 8/15/16 any remaining spots will be open to non Mutants.

You will not be assigned a site number when you call, but they will ask the length of your rig and whether you need 50 or 30 amps. They are making improvements to the park so things will change before we get there.

They have a covered pavilion that is ours and wood fires are allowed. They sell firewood or we can bring in our own.

Detroit Lake is nearby and the State Park has a campground, but they won't reserve this far out.

Detroit Lake State Recreation Area - Oregon State Parks and Recreation

I looked at many campgrounds in the full eclipse area. All the others were disappointing. I just drove past their billboard and turned around to take a look. I love this park and really enjoyed Laurie. I know this will be an epic GC, so don't miss it.

Got questions? Ask away!
Their website kept mentioning campnative and I had no clue what that is but it's a website that shows camping places and they have lots of details on the River Mountain RV Park. Click the link and you'll see more pics and such than the website for the campground shows.

Steve,

I forgot to mention that there may be fewer than 20 FHU sites and some are only 30 amp. I asked Laurie about August temperatures and she said she has never needed AC, even in August. About the time it gets warm, the afternoon breeze off the river kicks in.

I will reserve a 30 amp site, but will give it up to any Mutant wanting it and move down to dry camping.

Whoops, time to call Laurie.

Carl, Campnative might be the online reservation system, which we won't be using.

Looking good Barb! FHU 50 or 30 amp, count us in!

Now to figure out how to get there, I see it's just up the road from Detroit!

I thought that town sounded familiar. We have driven that road bet Sisters & Salem. It is a pretty drive.

I tried to quote you Tim but it was hijacked. Edited it to delete the quote.

God willing. That is a short drive for us. Now to think about the route. So many possibilities.

Ha Steve, I mentioned this once before, but I'll be persistent and mention it again. Can you, or someone else, post on RVMutants.com the info on the planned GC's. It gets difficult to go back and find the info at a later date if one finds they might be able to make a planned GC. We currently are planning the PEI trip, the Maine GC, the Fredricksburg GC and now Oregan. I know we don't use the .com site very much but this might be a good use for it. Or any other suggestions.

Understood. My main reason to post the link was because it had more pics of the sites at the place and such.
