Campground Review #46: Ainsworth State Park near Portland, Oregon


On this week’s Campground of the Week’s podcast episode, Larissa Richardson from ThePopUpPrincess.com, takes us back to the amazing state park system in Oregon, and reviews Ainsworth State Park, just 30 miles east of Portland.

This campground is simple, but makes a perfect base camp for exploring both the downtown area of Portland and the beautiful Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area.images

One of the best features of the campground is that it offers full hook ups at a bargain price of $24. Larissa also raves about the clean (and free!) showers with plenty of hot water to keep her teenagers happy. The campground isn’t large though, so if you want to nab a spot you should probably book early. Listen to the episode to hear even more insider tips from Larissa and also her one (loud) nobody’s perfect complaint.

Campground #27 Silver Falls State Park, Oregon

Silver Falls State Park,Oregon

We are thrilled to welcome Larissa Richardson, aka The Pop Up Princess, onto Campground of the Week to review an amazing state park in the state of Oregon. Larissa stayed at Silver Falls State Park to break up a long haul from California to Seattle. Her family ended up loving it so much, they can’t wait to return.

In the first segment, Larissa gives us a review of the campground itself, discussing the different loops and where you might want to stay on your visit. She will also give you the reservation lowdown, noting that this is a popular spot for the locals so you will definitely want to book in advance.

In the second segment, Larissa tells us all about the rest of the state park, where they found more activities than they ever imagined. Silver Falls State Park actually has its own blog, keeping everyone informed about their regular events and happenings.

Silver Falls State Park is considered one  of the gems of the Oregon state parks system, and the Pop Up Princess tells us why on Episode #27 of Campground of the Week!
