Following is simply my opinion and impression of the following parks I checked out while in the area. Their names below are links to their websites, if they have one.

They are listed in order as you are driving north on I-5. All below listed their nightly rate in May, 2005 as $25/night for full hookups, but check before arrival.

Chinook Winds RV Park
(formerly Circle W RV Park)
(541) 582-1686
8110 Rogue River Highway
I-5 Exit 48
- Grants Pass
This is a cute little park I visited when my Jacksonville friend, Susan, moved there. It fronts the Rogue River, a definite attraction. I met the manager, who was very nice and obviously cared about the park, which is owned by her daughter and husband.
I'm standing on the nice deck they have built at the river's edge - a good place to feed the ducks and watch the birds. The park has a total of 25 sites, 18 with full hookups. The manager said about 75% were occupied by long term residents at this time.
Riverfront RV Park
(541) 582-0985
7060 Rogue River Highway
I-5 Exit 48 - Grants Pass
This is a small park consisting of 21 spaces. It was mostly full when I dropped by and the manager told me most were long-term residents. These two sites and five other directly front the Roque River.
These grassy sites, 13 & 14, have no sewer and are used for overnighters or weekenders. He said the motor homes like it because you can just drive up and watch the river flow.
Riverpark RV Park
(800) 677-8857
2956 Rogue River Highway
I-5 Exit 48 - Grants Pass
All things considered with the daily rates being equal, this looked like the nicest overall riverfront park to me, with 700' of Roque River frontage. It has 47 spaces, all with full hookups and cable TV.
My only concern was that it was so nicely shaded that I wouldn't be able to get a satellite signal. I didn't see any other satellites out when I drove through. The manager says it depends on the site and how much the trees are blossomed out.
3298 Pearce Park Road
I-5 Exit 55 - Grants Pass, OR
I chose Moon Mountain RV Park as my home in Grants Pass due to its convenient location and reasonable monthly rate ($285 + elec.) I like how the sites are terraced - and the views of the mountains aren't bad either!
My site #21 - the only metered monthly site when I arrived. Once the slides are out, it is a bit tight on the sides - it's hard to get to my storage bins on the left and I have to watch my step around the bedroom slide on the right. Most sites are wider than this.
