Early Fall RV Trips

Early fall in the Columbia River Gorge and on Mt. Hood is an absolutely gorgeous time of year. The morning air is crisp, but afternoons tend to warm up. The leaf peeping is in full effect, and fresh brewed cider tastes better in the fall. It’s a great time to consider an RV trip! 

Both The Gorge and Mt. Hood have unique RV locations to explore! Here are some of our favorite RV parks in the region: 

Mt. Hood

Heading into the forest, check out Mt. Hood Village RV Resort nestled in the Mt. Hood National Forest. This is a great base camp as it is near tons of hiking and mountain biking trails, and is located close to some historic Oregon Trail sites to see!

Hood River

If you’re interested in exploring Hood River, there are a number of great RV Parks to suit your interests! Tollbridge Park has riverside camp spots, and some even have partial hookups. 

Tucker Park is a lovely RV and tent campground that is fantastic for fishing and for families!

For a centrally located campground and a great jumping off point for hiking, biking, or fishing, look into Viento State Park! Or, take a trip to some of the U-Pick farms in the area for fresh fall produce.

West Columbia Gorge

If you’re looking for a great RV park in the Gateway to the Gorge, head to Sandy Riverfront RV Park in Troutdale. This is a fantastic launch pad for hikes in the Gorge, or both sunrise and sunset views from Cascade Locks. Crown Point RV Park is another great camp in the West Columbia Gorge that is close to day use areas along the Columbia River, as well as some of the most stunning waterfalls. Please head to to find the latest information on what waterfall trails are currently open in the Gorge.

The Dalles

With cooler mornings and evenings making an appearance as a reprieve for the hot summer heat, Dufur City Park Campground has RV sites is a perfect early fall destination. This is also a dog friendly park, so your furry family member can join! Harvest RV Park has great amenities for RV adventurers with full hookups.
