Jantzen Beach RV Park
Campground Description: The Jantzen Beach RV Park is a privately owned and operated facility located on Hayden Island in the Columbia River, near downtown Portland. The facility is well maintained and offers 2 seasonally heated swimming pools, a club house with a pool table, restrooms with hot showers and a laundry facility. The RV park is across the street from the Jantzen Beach Shopping Center which offers a complete shopping mall, separate "big box" stores, fast food and fine dining. Note that the Jantzen Beach RV Park does not allow tent camping. Open to RVs year round.
Number of Sites: 169
Waste Water Dump Station: No
Directions: Interstate 5 Southbound from Washington - Drive South on I-5 to exit 308, the first Oregon State exit. Take exit 308 and turn right onto N. Center Avenue. Follow N. Center Avenue for 1/8 mile to Hayden Island Drive. Turn left onto Hayden Island Drive. Follow for 1/2 mile to the entrance to Jantzen Beach RV Park. Interstate 5 Northbound from downtown Portland - Drive North on I-5 to exit 308, the last Oregon State exit. Take exit 308 and follow to Hayden Island Drive. Turn left onto Hayden Island Drive. Follow for 1/2 mile to the entrance to Jantzen Beach RV Park.
Fishing: On the Columbia River, but nobody comes to downtown Portland to fish. Fishing off Hayden Island may not be fruitful. Better fishing is available downriver at the town of Scappoose or on the Willamette, Sandy, or Tualatin Rivers, among others.
Astronomy Opportunities: Telescope camping is very poor due to light pollution from the surrounding area.
Nearby Golfing: Portland offers more than 20 public golf courses. Look for them on the internet at Portland Area Golf Courses or consult the Portland Area Yellow Pages.

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 allow RV camping but not 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 ensure 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 tent camping and all types of RV camping. 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.
