Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Rivers Edge RV Park & Campground in Portland


We tent camped here Friday, June 10, 2011. It was a nice stay. The little shower/bathroom house was basic but clean. In fact, the owner cleaned it for us when we arrived. (Although it wasn't bad before that!) We were glad to have the little blue shower house as potential shelter, since we were barely missed by a severe storm with hail. We didn't need it, but we were prepared to duck in there if the storm had hit us. The owners were friendly and keep a nice little campground. I would guess there are about 5-6 RV spots with electricity and I believe also water/waste hookups. There were about 5 tent spots with fire rings. Some spots had nice blue picnic tables. It was us and an RV the night we were there. The grounds were clean and neat. It seems like they are trying to work on the landscaping.
The owners work during the day, so be patient trying to reach them. We couldn't call them when we got there, since we didn't have strong enough cell reception, but we had called in advance (although somehow we were down for the wrong day... didn't matter). When we got there, we set up our tent and they stopped by when they got home from work.
We didn't visit the nearby bar, but we did hear their music until about 4-5am. It wasn't loud enough to keep us awake. I guess Portland likes to party Friday nights!
All in all, I would recommend the Rivers Edge RV Park and Campground!

It's a good place to camp with a basic shower/bathroom building. I camped there in Oct 2009 and sept 2010. Would do it again someday.
