Rising River RV Park is located on the south side of Roseburg, Oregon. While the RV park is located in a bit of a larger city, it is relatively close to the edges of the town. The fall season is a popular time to visit due to the surrounding trees that turn into brighter colors before the leaves fall off for the winter. Rising River RV Park is nestled right near the shores of the South Umpqua River, within walking distance to the edge of the water. Due to its location, the city is placed not far from both the city as well as the surrounding mountains and forests.
Rising River RV Park has 90 RV sites and one vacation home rental available on their fourteen acres of land. The River House Vacation Rental is a house along the banks of the onsite river, the South Umpqua River. Large Sequoia trees surround the house and create a natural and outdoorsy setting. Due to the location of the house, guests can find it easier to relax here rather than at an RV site.
Among the features that the vacation home rental has to offer, one will find a private backyard with a covered deck. Essential amenities provided at the campground include free cable, high-speed WiFi, and 30 and 50 AMP electrical stations at the RV sites.

There were also small fenced in areas for pets, which was super handy and nice to have."
