Oregon RV Laws

  • If not fueling with diesel, and it is the daytime hours, and you are in a large township you have to allow the service station attendant to fill your vehicle. Oregon used to do this for fire concerns, but as of the 2015 legislature it was decided that this is a make jobs action. You can always fill your own vehicle if using diesel, you can fill a gas vehicle in rural areas at night if the filling station has the right equipment to take payment after hours. Unless you are in Portland, Oregon where the current fuel tax is now 75 cents per gallon, you will find gas in Oregon to be the same as in other states. The down side is it take longer to get fuel because you have to wait on the attendant. Don’t get it yourself, the fines are scary.
  • Rv’s can be 14′ high, 8.6′ Wide, Trailers up to 45 feet long, Class “A” “C” ect… 45′, Only one trailer can be pulled at a time.
  • Nearest truck is Gordy’s, has scales, competitive fuel prices, and a dump station. Here is a list of Oregon truck stops.

Way South


Sunriver, Oregon (Bend) 20 miles south on Hwy 97. This Park is a wonderful park, everything I want out of a membership park except it has no sewer hookups due to county regulations. In addition to the park being clean, nice and obviously well managed, they do not have rude signs around that are condescending to members, nor big rule packets, and the park truly gives the feel of a family friendly atmosphere.  The park is 4 hours out of Portland, 3 hours from the Columbia River Gorge and 3 hours from Salem. If you are in Oregon, you need to come to Bend. Note: This park has no sewer hookups.

They place most of the long term people behind this sign. This way everyone gets along better

Long term rental, everything is kept neat as can be. I have very little issue with leased sites when they are kept like this one.
