Willamette Wine Country RV Park - Dayton, Oregon
I'd like to say we discovered this little gem just by pulling off the road, but the truth is we looked hard and long for it. While staying at Spirit Mountain Casino (In Grand Ronde Oregon) we took several days driving through some 13 RV parks before we found "the right spot." I felt alot like Goldylocks as I cried, "This one is too noisy." or "This one is too messy." or "This one's spaces are too small." Finally we found a place that was "just right," Dayton.
Our park has 200 spaces surrounded by trees, grass and vineyards. 8 Spaces are filled with super cool, fully restored, vintage trailers from the late 1940's through 1965. Each is available as a nightly rental for the crowds visiting this popular, wine making community. Currently we have about 50 full time neighbors. The rest of the spaces are available for nightly rentals. We have access to a laundry room, rec room, gym, showers, a pool and a store.
In Kansas we learned to walk so we were happy to discover a trail leading directly into Dayton from our coach. It takes about an hour to walk round trip to and from our PO BOX at the Dayton Post Office and one or both of us try to walk it at least once a day.
Dayton is a very central location. We are 25 miles from Portland or Salem. 5 miles from McMinnville and 8 miles from Newberg. An hour drive from the ocean and a half an hour to my family in Grand Ronde. Its great to jump in the car and go somewhere quick. Yamhill County is all about Vineyards and gourmet nuts. Everywhere you drive you see hills covered with vines and rows of hazelnut trees. It's easy to see why this area is so very popular in the Spring, Summer and Fall.
