We have stayed at RV Park of Portland in Tualatin just off I-5 at exit 289, at Nyberg Road. It is next to a new shopping center under construction, so do not know whether noise would be a problem. We found the freeway noise at night to be a little intrusive, but the park is clean and safe, and it is easy to access either downtown Portland on I-5 or the eastern areas from 205. http://www.rvparkofportland.com

We have driven through Town & Country RV Park on 82nd as a potential place to stay closer to family and it looks okay. It is across the street from Wal-Mart and this part of 82nd Avenue in Clackamas County is not too scary...no more so than the rest of the city!

You might not be aware that the area on the west side of 82nd at that location is well known, from 82nd Ave to Bell Ave. Those of us that have lived close to there know that area as "Felony Flats".

We lived in that area for a year last year and never had any reason to be concerned.

I suppose it could have changed in the past 15 years. I moved into Milwaukie area in 1965, it was know as Felony Flats then. I moved away from there to Woodburn in 1995, still known as Felony Flats at that time. Sometimes things change.

RV park of Portland, Tualitan actually, is clean, reasonably priced and close enough to Portland to be non inconvenient (Does that make sense?)

My brother lived there in his travel trailer during a divorce and I worked for many years just up the road @ the Boones Ferry exit. I visited my brother there many times. I never felt it was creepy or seedy.

The next trip I do to PDX with my rig, I will stay there. (I lost my parking spot in someones driveway due to HIS divorce LOL!)

I have driven by the Sandy River one, it is also clean and a good location for gorge activities, but if you are going for the gorge, the state and forest service parks up the hiway are more in tune with the outdoor theme.

The Chicken and Dumpling place is called Tadds. It was my all time favorite eat out place when I lived up the hiway from it, and not because of location. I still travel out there almost every trip "Home" for a meal. Sometimes twice!

We've also stayed at the RV Park of Portland many times over the last 9 years.
We find it a nice place to stay.
