Camping in Portland Oregon

Any recommendations for a campground/RV Park that is close to or has easy access to the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon? Is there available parking at the Oregon Convention Center that will accommodate a long box crew cab DRW or should a person find alternate transportation to get there (cab or City transit)? TIA

Tri-Met the local transportation and Max the light rail will have stops there. Making connections might be a PIA depending on where you are starting from. Don't know about parking there, might try the website. I don't think there is much for parking lots.

There is RV parks within several miles, nothing close. And doubtful if you are going to find any spaces.

For State Parks try Champoeg, south of Portland 35 miles, and Stub Stewart west of Portland about 36 miles.

A couple near Ridgfield, WA that is 25 miles.

RV Park Reviews is likely your best bet to start hunting. I do know Columbia River RV Park is nice but it is under the flight path of PDX. Had a co-worker stay there to cut his commute. Like he said 'It isn't bad with ear plugs and a radio going.' We worked nights, too. LOL

I know Roamers Rest is decent, just don't be there during the rainy season cause the river sometime floods.

If you are an Elk member there is also an Elks Lodge in Sherwood that has spaces.

There are a couple of parks in NE portland. From there it is maybe 5 minutes to the Max station at the old stock yards. 20 minutes to the convention center. Parking near the convention center is UGLY at best and costly. Not to mention the likelyhood of your truck being broken into.
In east Portland there are two decent parks, Portland/Fairview is one of them. Max station in Gresham will drop you infront of the convention center.

We stayed at Jantzen Beach RV Park. We had no complaints. Could even wash the rig.

If your meeting is at the 700 NW Couch St building, then from Jantzen beach get on the Max train just south at the Expo center and get off at the first stop after crossing the river. That will give you about a short 5 block walk. Check the trimet/Max web site for schedules and price.

In Portland, Burnside Street is the east/west breakpoint.....the Willamette River is the south to north breakpoint.......so, it's SE,NE,NW,SW.....the NW & SW are on the west side of river, and NE,SE are the east side.....In Portland proper, the North/ South streets are numbers, the West/East are names.....Even number address are all on one side of every street..and the RV park is on Hayden Island.....Hooters on east side of I-5....just a landmark...lol......and stay in the right lane approaching the island.....kinda of a bottle neck at times...
