Campground Overview

Well life IS an adventure so they say,  and we’ve found ours right here in Chinook, WA. 

Here at RV Park At The Bridge in Chinook, WA, the views of the Astoria-Megler Bridge are stunning! We are 1/2 mile West of the Astoria-Megler Bridge on the WA side. Please be sure to look for the main East side park entrance. There is large RV PARK SIGN near the palm trees~ BE SURE TO NOT pull into neighbors private driveways. TY. 

The sunrise, the sunset, and the lights of the city of Astoria, Oregon are a real draw for many. Others just love the convenience of being so close to Astoria, Oregon (4 miles across the bridge) yet vacation or live in Chinook, WA. 

The previous owners of the RV Park (formerly known as Mauch's Sundown RV Park) became our friends and they knew that with my husband’s skill set (and my hospitable nature), we were the right ones to take over the RV Park when they retired. How could we pass up the opportunity to invest in a Pacific County community, the people who live here in Chinook, WA and those who vacation on the OR & WA Coast? We continue to upgrade and beautify the RV Park...and love on y’all. We feature full hookup  RV sites along with a few tent sites for those seeking more traditional camping. 

The mouth of the Columbia, Buoy 10 and the Pacific Ocean are known for their plentiful bounty~Sturgeon, Salmon (Chinook & Coho), Tuna, Halibut, Bottom fish, etc are waiting for you! 

Visit Columbia River Maritime Museum, The Astoria Column, The Captain George Flavel House Museum especially if you are a Goonie! Challenge yourself at High Life Adventures and go for a thrilling zip line. Visit Historical Fort Stevens State Park & Fort Clatsop...or have a beer at local brewery. New breweries, cider houses and distilleries are just around the corner, so what are you waiting for? Create your adventure!

In WA, check out Fort Columbia Historical State Park, Cape Disappointment and their Waikiki Summer Concert series. Visit Fort Canby State Park in Ilwaco, WA. & North Head Lighthouse. Take a hike, ride a bike, enjoy kayaking or just go fly a kite at the International Long Beach Kite Festival. 

We welcome you to stay with us @ RV Park At The Bridge!

Area Tips

Wanting more adventure? Check out some favorites!

Clark’s Dismal Nitch 230 US101- about ½ mile east of the Park. Dismal Nitch was an important part of Lewis & Clark expedition. They had made their way across the country, only to be stuck here for nearly a week waiting out a fierce winter storm in 1805. Informational signs will guide you.

Middle Village Station Camp 354 US101, Chinook WA- about 2 miles west of the Park. There is a paved parking lot that is just off the highway with some RV and bus parking. Enjoy the smooth footpath all the way around through the park. Easily walkable. Wheelchair accessible. It’s about a half mile long. There are several observation decks where you can look out over the area, and lots of informational signs. An interesting feature is the three large concrete canoes where kids are welcome to climb on and enjoy.

Fort Columbia State Park 475 US101, Chinook WA- about 3 miles west of the Park. A great example of a pre-World War II coast artillery fort with interpretive signs to explain what you're seeing. It provides a vivid glimpse into the history of the area.The museum in the barracks building provides history of the area and the use of the fort over the years. The movie is excellent! It was a beautiful place for a picnic lunch. Don't miss the Powerhouse trail. It is short, interesting and has a beautiful view.

North Head Lighthouse Fort Canby State Park, Ilwaco, WA Beautiful forest trails meander their way to 2 historic lighthouses. A great shooting location for photographers! Ideal for families, children and dogs. Amazing beaches too!
