5 acres
3 sites
3 RV
We purchased this 5 acres in 2008. It was a raw piece of land with waist high field grass and thick brush lining the river bank. We had a vision to develop this into a place where people could come and be refreshed.  After 3 years of sweat equity we we witnessed the transformation into a park like setting with over 3 acres of mowed lawn, perfect for bocce ball, croquet, or working on your pitching iron. We are nestled at the end of a beautiful agricultural valley, surrounded by the foothills.  Deer frequently come on the property looking for some special treats.  One of our most relaxing activities is to sit in our lawn chairs with our feet in the river and let nature cool us on a hot summer day or sit on a tethered inner tube and let the river wash any worries away. The firepit is a great place to roast hot dogs, make smores but mainly just enjoy the hypnotizing dance of the flames and campfire conversation. If you are looking for a break from the rush and stress of city life, you have found it. 3 RV sites on the North fork of the Neuwakum River. 15 minutes east of I-5, exit 71, 90 minutes to beach, 60 minutes to Mt. St. Helens, 60 minutes to Mt. Rainier, 5 seconds to peace and tranquility, prime agate hunting river. Sites 1&2 are on gravel pads. Site 3 is on the grass not a gravel pad. Each site has 20 and 50 amp electrical hookup, water, and a fire pit. Site 3 is farthest from the play toy and has its own access to the river.  Have the kids bring their bikes to ride all over our 5 acre property. We have a sand pile for kids to enjoy so don’t forget your shovel and bucket! Note: When driving on North Fork road look for mile markers on shoulder of the road. Earthship Drive is 1/4 mile past the 8 mile marker. Entrance is identified by a large log sign "Clover Valley". Stay on gravel drive, just past sign saying "River View Retreat" take left fork of drive. Sites are numbered on the electrical box. Please feel free to pull onto the grass to line up your RV.

Awesome for some.
I would definitely recommend it for people that wanted some down time. Bare minimum cell signal on T-Mobile. Great views on a dead end road. Plenty of room and a nice creek to play in. My wife and I like to go to new areas and explore. There isn’t much in nearby towns. My. St. Helens is a bit far and so is Mt. Rainier. But for peace and quiet and nobody to bother you, it’s a “Go”.

Praceful riverfront getaway
Exceeded my expectations. Campsites were riverfront and there was firewood waiting for us. The river was amazing and was great for wading. Having power, water and a firepit made for carefree camping. I had some of the best nights sleep since it was so quiet and hearing the river flow. We will definetly be back.

How tranquil and soothing. Sounds of the creek water, wind in the trees, sunshine and shade, brilliant moon views, and a crackling fire. A great opportunity to exhale. Had a great time with friends just enjoying each other and the surroundings. We'll return often.

We loved staying there.! The property was serene and well manicured. Our host, Julie, was super friendly. We picked a few blackberries on the property to put on our morning pancakes. 10/10 - highly recommended.

Hands down best campsite ever!
I hesitate to give Riverview Retreat a glowing review only because I’m afraid so many people will find out about this gem that I’ll have a hard time booking a reservation next time. Our stay was absolutely phenomenal. We were greeted when we arrived and felt SO welcomed. The property is beautiful. The dogs loved splashing in the river that’s literally right behind our campsite. Listening to the river at night was so peaceful. I seriously can’t say enough good things about this trip. We will definitely be making this a regular stay!

Had a wonderful weekend at the River View Retreat! You wont find many RV sites that you can literally back up to a river and have a peaceful view right out your back window. Dan and Julie could not be a nicer pair of hosts, they truly make you feel welcome and like you're part of the family. The directions are easy and parking is a breeze. Definitely would be a good kicking off spot for mountain activities. Don't hesitate to book! Minus one star for not letting me play in the sand pile 😜 j/k!

Incredible place, incredible people
There are many things I could say about Dan and Julie’s place but first I want to start by speaking on their family. The minute you step foot on the property you are treated with a warm smile and told anything you need, let them know. Then the rest of the family trickled in to meet us and make us feel so welcomed. The entire weekend we were treated like one of their own. From inviting our kids to slip and slide with their grandkids or just holding one of our twins so we’d had a free hand. You talk about good people, you won’t find any better! Now on to the actual site. This place is God’s gift to earth. No exaggeration. So beautiful. Many ways to access the river. Plenty of space to bike ride and explore. The sand pile was incredible and big enough for multiple kids. We have 5 and it was plenty big for ours and their grandkids. Their hospitality in just making sure this weekend was everything we needed was incredible. Our kiddos favorite was the golf cart ride up “Dead Man’s Hill.” It’s all our kids have talked about since leaving. This was the best family trip we’ve ever had and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. This place was incredible and definitely felt like home. Love that you have your own water access and electricity. Only thing I’d say is don’t expect much from the River except beautiful scenery and floating in a tethered inner tube. The rocks below are close to the top and while you aren’t hurt, it prevents any rafting. No big deal for us!

The absolute best!
We just LOVE it at Dan and Julie’s! It’s one of our favorite places to stay! True Gem! If your lucky you’ll get a visit from the neighbors dog Nelly she’s so friendly and played with our kids and our dog, Dan spoiled us with their amazing popcorn.. it’s the best! Truly incredible people and the Neighbor Dan is so friendly and a wealth of knowledge about rocks and gems! The whole community is a rare find, truly! We couldn’t recommend this place more! Which is why we continue to come back!

Great location, quiet and serene. Very spacious sites. Host were very welcoming. Neighboring campsite dogs didn’t stay on their campsite and kept coming to pee on our items or bite our pup. That was the only bummer of the trip, they weren’t very aware of their dogs locations. Luckily only there one day with us. But that is not reflection of the campsite. Only thing that would make this site better is an on-site dump. It’s the same cost for what a full view hookup would cost you elsewhere.

Such a relaxing spot! Hosts are just the nicest people. We love how beautiful the yard is, how dog friendly it is, the river. Pretty isolated so be prepared to entertain yourself. That's one of the things we love most. Repeat campers and we will be back!

Serene and peaceful please to stay.
This is a beautiful and quiet place to unwind from everything. You hear the river the entire time you're in camp which is wonderful. The hosts come down and say hello and make you feel like family as opposed to a guest. We will definitely return for more trips to stay here. I really can't say enough great things about this camp - TOP NOTCH to say the least!

We always enjoy staying at River View RV Retreat. We had 8 adults and two children and used all three places. There is plenty of room to spread out and play games. We love splashing around in the creek that is accessible in two places. We will definitely stay again next year for our annual family camp out.

Wonderful Solo Female Camping!
My little dog and I enjoyed a peaceful, beautiful, life renewing camping experience at River View RV resort. Dan and Julie are delightful, supportive and available without being intrusive; perfect. I camp in a mini-tear drop trailer and used my porta-potty set up at Site# 3 with a wonderful view of the river that can be heard continuously. Electricity and water available.

Wonderful river retreat
We love that the camping is limited to three spots and there’s some distance between them for some privacy. It’s very quiet except for the nearby river which sounds wonderful, especially at night. The hosts, Dan and Julie, couldn’t be any nicer or more welcoming. They’re very helpful with suggestions on things to do in the area which we appreciated. We also like that they provide water and power hookups. Note the the power receptacles are 50 amp or 20 amp. If you’ve got an rv that takes 30 amps you’ll need a 50 to 30 amp adapter. We’ve stayed here several times now and plan on staying here more in the future.
