Campground Review: Riverpark RV Resort, Grants Pass, OR

We spent a week at the pretty Riverpark RV Resort in Grants Pass, OR. Nestled on the South bank of the Rogue River, the park is minutes from all services in Grants Pass, and a few miles North of the Applegate Valley Wine Trail.

There are 47 full hook up sites. Roads are paved, sites are concrete pads and most sites are quite close together, closer than we normally like. The redeeming factor is if you have a river back in site, like we did in site #19, the angle of the site was such that our big side window looked out upon the river, very nice!

Amenities include restrooms/showers, laundry (inexpensive), wifi, cable tv. We had decent Verizon 4G service with our booster during our stay. The previous owner was an artist and unique wood carvings are scattered throughout the property. The park is well shaded, making satellite reception iffy, cool in the warm months and cold in the cool months.

At $216 for a one week stay we enjoyed the river view and the deep quiet at night and the closeness to town. We did not like how close the neighbors were though. Rosie loved walking along the river!

Site #19, very close to the neighbors...but backs up to the river.

Sites on the left back up to the river, office on the right,
a jumble of back-in sites in the middle.

Afternoon view from our big picture window.

Morning mist on the river looking downstream.

Wonderful sculptures on the property.

Upstream view of the river. You can see a couple of RV's in the river back-in sites.
Tom Pearce Park, where we played disc golf, is directly across the river.


  1. We were at this park on two occasions, on our way to AK and back from AK as we had some work done at Hendersons Lineup (the subject of Nina's woes on their transmission).
    Agree the sites are not spacious but Steve particularly likes this place that is why we came back.
    Funny I never noticed those sculpture :(

    1. It's amazing how there are so many RV parks right off the freeway and so few further away...we liked the distance from the noisy freeway!

  2. You had a lovely site. It is locations like this that the fifth wheel is best unit to have. I like when we have fifth wheels next to us because our living room areas are in opposite ends of the RV so we aren't looking at each other from the inside.

    1. Yes, it worked out very well that there were MH's on both sides of us! Also it was so cold most every day in our shaded site that we did not want to sit outside at all, I took Rosie down to the sunny beach!
