You got to love the name – Hee Hee Illahee. It makes me want to giggle. This park is owned by the Siletz Indian tribe, and the name literally means “a fun place to be” in the native language. That’s the only indication that the park is tribal-owned, otherwise it is managed just like any other RV resort we’ve stayed at.
Oregon continues to surprise me with their reasonably-priced RV resorts. This park has all the amenities – seasonal outdoor pool, hot tub, playground, clubhouse with pool table and kitchen, coin laundry, playground, gazebo with BBQ grill – for a moderate price of under $40/night at the weekly rate. Daily rates are higher ($47 plus tax), but they do accept Good Sam discount. The restrooms are a bit unusual in that they have individual bath rooms with toilet, sink and shower. They are clean, modern, and spacious. This relatively new campground has 139 spaces, most pull through and all full hook up. The roads and sites are big-rig friendly, with plenty of maneuvering room and no overhead hazards.
Our concrete pull through pad is fully long enough for all of our gear with grass and a picnic table between sites. We have the usual full hookup amenities (50 amp electric) plus cable TV is available. We have no trouble picking up a number of over the air TV stations as well as our satellite dish stations. The park wifi is excellent, much better than our ATT hotspot bandwidth. I can even stream you-tube video, and the wifi is absolutely free!!
The campground is in a great location to explore the Willamette valley area with its parks, outdoor activities, and wineries. Shopping is nearby and Portland is less than an hour away. The office staff are friendly and helpful, and accept packages with no problem.
Bottom Line: Great luxury RV resort amenities at a moderate price.
