Camp Oregon recently had the pleasure of speaking with the owner of Twin Rivers Vacation Park. The location along the North Umpqua River makes it an ideal destination if you’re looking to get away for a camping trip to Oregon’s wine country. She told us about their campgrounds, the proximity to wineries, and where she’s spend just one night in the park. Listen to our full interview here:
Twin Rivers Vacation Park Camping OR
Camp Oregon: I’m talking with Vicky today. She’s the Owner at Twin Rivers Vacation Park in Oregon. Vicky, why don’t you get us started by giving us a little bit of history about Twin Rivers Vacation Park?
Vicky: Two of them are within walking distance.
CO: Wow. If I come out there, are you going to cart me around to all these wineries?
Vicky: It’s just gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous.
CO: That sounds fantastic. Now, do you have tent camping as well?
Vicky: I have a beautiful tent area that is right over the knoll is the North Umpqua River. So, my tenters listen to the North Umpqua River all night long.
Vicky: It’s a huge, green grass area with big matured trees, and this comes with fresh water, fire pit, and picnic table.
CO: Oh, okay. What’s your favorite winery out there, Vicky?
Vicky: Oh, I can’t say, because I enjoy them all. We have Henry Estates, which I think is one of the oldest well-established vineyards within the area. They’re one of the few vineyards that do not charge for sampling, but all the wine in this area is just wonderful. It’s comparable to the Sonoma, Napa Valley in California.
CO: Great. And in addition to all of the wineries out there, what are some of your favorite attraction in the area?
Vicky: There’s a lot of antiquing. We have several old mining towns and logging towns that offer their own flair for the county. We have eagles nesting within the area. You can often see, even during the daytime, deer walking through my property. I have about two and a half acres of just nothing but green grass with big, beautiful trees for children to play, and there’s a swing set and horseshoe pits and volleyball net. I also have a convenient store, propane, wonderful laundry and shower facilities and restrooms. My Park is very unique because, as you come in my driveway, it’s lined with big, beautiful pine trees. And then, once you come in, my driveway to come into my Park, the Park is separated from the store and the driveway entrance by a huge 12-foot green laurel edge, and then I’m also a gated Park.
CO: All right, perfect. It sounds like an absolutely gorgeous place to visit.
Vicky: It is. It is just very unique. I have clients that come from all over the United States. I’ve also had clients from New Zealand, England, Poland, France, Italy, and Germany. They fly over and rent an RV, and they tour the Western Coast. And it is not uncommon for them to tell me that this is the most beautiful, pristine Park that they have visited.
CO: Perfect. Absolutely perfect. Well, thank you so much, Vicky, for taking a little time out of your morning to tell us a little bit more about the surrounding area and to give us some great information about Twin Rivers Vacation Park in Oregon.
CO: All right, perfect. So, very affordable and that would be great for me, because I would probably be hitting almost all of those wineries, so I can spend my money there.
Vicky: There you go.
CO: Well, thanks again, Vicky, for chatting with us and have a great weekend.
Vicky: You’re welcome and thank you so much for calling.
