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.

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.
