Is this your business?
This is my favorite place to bring people when they're here from out of town or for my grandchildren and I have to go spend a hot afternoon at. We live in Springfield and it's only half hour away. It's always nice and cool even when it's a hundred degrees in town. It's so nice and clean. Has picnic tables, a playground, bathrooms, and the roped area for swimming is shallow pretty far out. Pretty safe for toddlers and Elementary School age children.
Camp B was awesome! I recommend reserving a site on the B side, the host Joe does a fantastic job of keeping everything on B side in tip top condition. The showers are kept in much better condition than A side, the restrooms are in great functional order AND showers are open an hour longer than the other side. Our host, Joe (and his lovely wife as well), was far more than just a camp host, he wanted to speak to the campers, get to know everyone, help, and allow everyone to have fun an enjoy their time. He loaned my family fishing poles and bait to use at the marina and even showed us the best spot to fish, offered to take us out on the boat he owns and really made us feel welcome, like family would. My kids demanded we return to the B side because “Joe is sort of like another grandpa”. The park has a swing set on A side, and over 100 sites most of which you can park an RV in. There are fewer tent only sites but there are plenty of them. All RV/Tent sites have a water hookup and electric hookup, the tent sites do not have either. There are sites that are fully shaded, partially shaded and a couple near the showers and restrooms that are not shaded, but the grass is green, and there’s no mud to trudge through.
Campsite was nice and fairly private. Bathrooms and showers weren’t bad. Pretty strict on parking, as many campgrounds are but it gets annoying when they come by and we already have our permits displayed and then still ask. Downside is that there isn’t good access to the lake from the campground, you need a vehicle to drive to the day use area, which isn’t far but if you have your rv and didn’t bring a separate vehicle, you can’t really do much at the water. Just a heads up to be prepared. Also, very strict on the 12 pm checkout, on a non crowded Monday. We had three spots for four nights and one spot was still occupied at 12:20 (my brother in law was in it and I wasn’t sure where he went). I got a phone call from the park, which is fine, I knew we were supposed to be out, but she was so rude they way she talked to me. She could have politely reminded me, especially since we had just spent so much time and money there and were respectful, quiet, and clean the whole time. She said someone had to check in. I later drove by the spot and no one was in it, campground was still mostly empty, and no reservation sign was posted that anyone was going to be in that spot for the night. Just a little unnecessary to be so rude to me. We would come back again but probably not any time soon unless everything else is filled up.
The Richardson Park is located a short drive from Eugene. The park is well maintained with many picnic tables, a playground and adequate bathrooms. There is lots of parking and it is located close to the lake. It is a great spot for families and friends to meet on a sunny day. The lake is chilly but refreshing. I recommend bringing your favorite pool floaty with.
I wanted peace. I didn't get it. I flew in from out of state to camp here for Oregon Country Fair. Leaf blowing commences around 8:30am with no consideration for tents yet poison oak grows under many of the trees. Police patrolled several times over my visit. The grounds are otherwise gorgeous with working showers and toilets. Since the change of management in 'A' loop the rental bikes, the ice cream, and the horseshoes disappeared. On the fence about ever returning.
