“A Forest Service campground with full hookups!”
Reviewed Aug 25, 2018
That's right, 20, 30 and 50 amp electrical with water and sewer. This is the first Forest Service campground we have stayed in with hookups. The campground is not on a river or lake. There are no towns nearby. The main attractions are the towering trees and hiking trails.
There is access to a Forest Service road at site 5. The campground is fenced but there is a small gate that can be opened just before reaching the road from site 5. The road is a nice hike and also leads to other hiking trails.
There are only 10 campsites but they are long, wide and private. Our favorite sites were 6 and 7. Our site 3 was OK but had the sewer connection on the wrong side of the site. Sites are gravel and close to level. All sites will accommodate any size rig. The campground is very quiet with the exception of an occasional car or truck passing by on Hwy 216.
There is a small brown building at most of the campsites. In the past, these were bunkhouses used by Forest Service employees. They are now empty.
The only negative about this campground is the lack of cell signal. There is no Verizon or AT&T signal unless using a booster. Even with our booster we only had a 1x signal with Verizon and no AT&T signal. Using the booster we could send and receive text messages but could not make phone calls. To get a Verizon 4G signal, drive 3 miles east on Hwy 216 to the "Leaving Mt. Hood National Forest" sign. There is a large pull off on the south side of the road where we could make calls and use the internet.
