Emerald RV Park – Jefferson, Ore.

Convenient, barebones camping near Oregon capital
  • Editor Rating

  • Rated 2.5 stars
  • 50%


This small new RV park is right off Interstate 5, just south of Salem. The camping is in a gravel lot, with a small field for dogs or play. But, it is very convenient for a night or two of sleep before heading north or south on I-5. Located at Exit 244.

It is close to the Enchanted Forest, a cool theme park for kids under 10, and the Oregon State Capital.

  • Picnic table at each site


  • Freeway noise
  • Sites not quite wide enough for walking around RV with slides out
