One of my favorite RV forums, Open Roads Singles, had a mini-rally when I was passing through Roseburg in September, 2005. It was held at Rising River RV Park - a great setting on the Umpqua River.

I was lucky enough to get the best site (#44) that fronts the river. It's also unique in that it has utilities on both sides of the large site, so you can either back in or head in. I loved how the river filled my big motorhome windshield!
Here's the Umpqua looking down the other side of the river - really a beautiful setting and a great spot for a campfire on a chilly Fall evening.
This shot shows the nice size of the pull-through sites on the middle row. I also appreciated the fences between spaces.
Deer from the hillsides sometimes stroll through the park, always welcome guests in my book.

Malia's 2 cents: I think what contributed to the overall nice feel of the park is that the owners, Don and JoEll, started building it themselves in 1996. JoEll said it feels like her "baby" and still just loves running it. She laughed when she said one of the best parts is constantly getting to "pick her neighbors." They show their neighborliness by sharing produce from the garden they maintain in the back and giving out honey at Christmas from the bees that Don keeps. The clubhouse and laundry room are comfy and clean decorated with a beautiful quilt on the wall - it doesn't get much better than this!

Address: 5579 S.W. Grange Road - Roseburg, OR 97470
