Big-rig friendly, 7 Feathers Casino RV Resort is a 5-star resort with a perfect 10/10*/10 Good Sam rating. 191 pull-through and back-in sites. The park is well laid out and designed. Utilities including 50/30/20-amp electric service, water, two sewer connections (middle and back of site), and cable TV (25 channels). Wi-Fi worked well from our site (#59).

Interior roads are paved, pads are concrete. Landscaping between sites with birch trees and varying sizes of shrubs including flowering rhododendrons.

Easy-on, easy off Interstate 10 at Exit 98.

This park is easy-on, easy off and on our route east on I-84; also convenient for RVers continuing north on I-5 to Seattle and beyond. Although our pull-through site is just shy of 50 feet (requiring unhooking at the site) there are about 10 pull-through sites 60+ feet where unhooking is not required.

30/50-amp electric service, water, sewer, and cable TV are centrally located but some distance apart. Of the 25 cable TV channels about half are too snowy to watch comfortably during our stay in April 2015.

Hee Hee Illahee RV Resort, Salem

New in 2006, Hee Hee Illahee RV Resort is situated about a mile east of I-5 (Exit 258). The name literally means “A Fun Place to Be”. Big rig friendly with fairly wide paved streets, long pull-through paved sites in the 75-foot range, and conveniently located 30/50-amp electric service, water, two sewer connections, and cable TV (69 channels). Wi-Fi signal worked well from our site (#56). We would return to this 5-star resort in a heartbeat.

If your passion is quality artisan cheeses, check out Willamette Valley Cheese, 13 miles from the resort on SR-221.

Jack’s Landing RV Resort, Grants Pass, Oregon

New in 2002, Jack’s Landing RV Resort is big rig friendly with pull-through sites in the 70-75 foot range (also back-in sites) and conveniently located 30/50-amp electric service, water, and sewer connections, and cable TV (22 channels). Paved sites and fairly wide paved streets. Pleasingly landscaped and treed, we have no difficulty accessing a satellite signal at our site. No problems with Wi-Fi. Only negative is freeway noise.

Gateway to the Applegate Wine Trail’s 18 vineyards and a great home base to explore the quaint, historic gold rush town of Jacksonville.

Columbia River RV Park, Portland, Oregon

Big rig friendly our pull-through site is in the 60-65 foot range. Utilities including 50/30/20-amp electric service, water, sewer, and cable TV (48 channels) are located near the rear of the site. No problem locating satellite TV. Wi-Fi signal is too weak to connect from our site or most anywhere in the park. The system is old and ownership is unwilling to update.

Parking for toad/tow vehicle is available at front of site. Interior roads are paved; sites are concrete. In the flight path of Portland International Airport.
