We have stayed at Portland Fairview RV Park several times and it is a very nice park. It's full hookup and beautifully kept. There is some air traffic above due to the flight path into Portland International but it isn't very bad. It is about a block or two from I-84 with easy on and off.

Sandy River RV is one of the nicest places we have stayed, but they are strict on a 25 lb limit for dogs. So we can't stop there anymore!
No longer the case. 70 pound limit and that's not strictly enforced. Just finished a six week stay there and found the park to be quite nice. Right on the Sandy River for a bit of fishing, near restored downtown and a couple of neat galleries and far enough from I-84 that there is no traffic noise. However, on the downside are the trains and planes coming into PDX. Neither was extreme but you knew they were there (really didn't bother us). And lastly, managers were all friendly and helpful.
Oh, final thought: Do not take exit 17 to get to the park, take exit 16! Exit 17 forces you to cross a quite narrow bridge -- doable but uncomfortable.
Thank you all for the campground recommendations. I was reading reviews of Sandy Riverfront RV and Portland Fairview RV Park, and it looks like they’re a good place to stay. I’ll try Sandy River RV resort as most of you recommended this place. Thanks Bruce and Sue for the heads up.
This will be our first visit to see Oregon coast and its famous falls. I can’t wait to hit the road. Thanks again.
