Timberlake Campground

We had to come back to Washington so we could get license plates for the Airstream. So, this week we’ve been camping at the Timberlake Campground and RV park on the Columbia River, which is about 50 miles east of Vancouver, WA and Portland, OR. LeRoy, the owner built this campground about 6 years ago on 22 acres of forested property. We’re happy with our spot since we can get both AT&T and Verizon service and there is free wifi.

They’re both pretty narrow, and have those grooves which make it hard to stay in the lane. Bridge of the Gods is much shorter, so that’s would be my recommendation. I’ve read some reviews of this campground by people with motorhomes who complained that they shouldn’t allow RV’s on these bridges because they’re so narrow and scary.

When we arrived they told us to take off our sway hitch and said we would need a running start to get the trailer up this gravel hill to get to site 29. They campground host said we would need to “gun it.” This of course made me uncomfortable, but we made it up the hill fine and are happily parked here for the week.
