Awful Shooting at Popular 4-Star RV Resort

On Thursday night, October 5, 2023, a fatal shooting occurred at a popular Thousand Trails RV Resort in Clackamas County, Oregon. 

Somebody made a domestic disturbance call around 7:45 pm at Mount Hood Village RV Resort

According to the local news, “The sheriff’s office said a man was found dead in front of a trailer, and a woman was found injured inside of the trailer. Both had apparent gunshot wounds.”

A third man was on the scene and is cooperating in the investigation. Names and further details have yet to be released.

On the Mount Hood Village RV Resort Facebook page, it’s business as usual without mentioning the incident—only beautiful pictures and fall-camping marketing.

Additionally, the Thousand Trails YouTube Page titled the Mount Hood Village RV Resort as the “Best Campground Near Portland.”

A Highly Rated Resort Among Well-known YouTubers and Bloggers

In a well-balanced blog post written by RV Love (updated in 2022 as of this article), they share the pros and cons of the resort. They summarize the post by writing, “We found this to be an excellent campground, one that is very well maintained, loaded with amenities and in a very nice, scenic location close to nature.”

YouTubers, Our Epic RV Adventure, give a tour of the property and generally offer a good review.
