Arlington RV Park & Marina
Campground Description: The Arlington RV Park and Marina is owned and operated by the City of Arlington, Oregon. This is a small RV camping facility that will also accommodate 2 tent camping families. The Arlington RV Park & Marina offers little landscaping or tree shade and the roadways and RV camping sites are all surfaced with crushed gravel. The two tent camping sites are on lawn. Adjacent to the Arlington RV Park is the boat launch and paved parking for boat trailers and their tow vehicles. This area doubles as a camping area for those who do not need or desire full hook-ups. Water and the restrooms are available from April 1st until October 31st every year. Some dining and limited shopping opportunities are available in Arlington. More restaurants and shopping are available in Boardman, Oregon, 22 miles east on I-84. Open year round. Reservations are not accepted.
Number of Sites: 12 full hook-up, 24 no utility sites and 2 tent camping sites
Electricity: At 12 sites
Water: Seasonally at 12 RV camping sites
Sewer: At 12 RV camping sites
Waste Water Dump Station: No
Directions: 137 miles east of Portland, Oregon. From eastbound or westbound Interstate 84 (I-84) take exit 137. Follow to Beach Street and turn left (east). Follow Beech Street to Arlington Port Road. Turn left (north) onto Arlington Port Road. Follow to the Arlington RV & Marina, approximately 0.3 miles.
Fishing: Great fishing on the Columbia River. Fishing for Salmon, Steelhead and Sturgeon on the Columbia River is best from a boat. Shore fishermen will be happy with the Smallmouth Bass that can be caught at the marina or on the rocky shoreline of the main river. Ask locally or get a good detailed map and try river fishing on the John Day River at McDonald, Oregon, (approximately 20 miles southwest). You won't be disappointed.
Astronomy Opportunities: Not particularly good from the camping area due to light pollution. Drive south on the John Day Highway (Oregon Highway 19) and find a suitable area south of town.

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds. The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site. Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide. Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do not allow tent camping. If in doubt, call the campground first.
The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners. In this way we insure that every description in this free guide is unbiased. Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tents and all types of RV campers. While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.
Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions. New campgrounds are added weekly.
