“Great free group campground while exploring Mt Hood NF”

Reviewed Sep 26, 2018

Overall Rating

This campground is very open, we were even able to park so that we could still get solar. We stayed the whole 14 day limit and got water from Trillium Campground down by the lake by paying the $5 day use fee. We were not able to find anywhere nearby (within 50 miles) to dump so we did it on our way to our next destination. There a... more

“Great stay”

Reviewed Aug 29, 2018

Overall Rating

We arrived on Sunday afternoon and there was plenty of spaces for our 32’ 5th wheel. There were 2 oversized - overstuffed trash bags that had been left behind by the previous campers. They had been torn open by critters and some of the trash was strewn around the site. Once we cleaned that up and dumped the trash down at the campground... more

“Fine for a night or two”

Reviewed Aug 27, 2018

Overall Rating

We only stopped here for a night and it is big and there are lots of little books you can pull into- but it still not really private and there are lots of neighbors-some of whom you don’t really want as your neighbors.

That being said it’s free, conveniently located and has AT&T signal

“Not ideal, but works”

Reviewed Aug 19, 2018

Overall Rating

We posted up here for two weeks in August to check out recreational opportunities around Mt Hood. It's hard to come by official dispersed camping options in this area, but you can use the Sno-Parks for no charge in the summer months. We would have rather have gone that way, but Trillium Airstrip is higher elevation (thus cooler) and ge... more

We stayed here 12 days during July. We arrived on a Saturday to a full campground. The campsites were full in every from the beginning of the road to the end. The noise level was at a 10 with loud music coming from 3 sites. They partied until 2am and then woke up by 9am, packed their stuff, left their trash and left by 10am Sunday morn... more

“Taking the bad with the good.”

Reviewed Jul 25, 2018

Overall Rating

There's not many dispersed camping areas this close to Mt Hood, that offer access to trails and lakes. So guess shouldn't be surprised at how busy this area is. Every inch of this stretch of dirt is taken during the week; we set-up earlier in the day and were completely surrounded by evening. There was the usual mix of full-time travel... more

Went here for my first RV overnight with my rig. Easy access for tents, large and small RVs. Lake is close by with a 2 mile hike/bike loop. Also, there are some other decent Mt. Bike trail accessible from the camp site.

“Nice spot but no access in winter”

Reviewed Apr 11, 2018

Overall Rating

Drove down from Canada to snowboard at Timberline the next day and arrived here at 11pm only to discover you can’t actually access the airstrip/lake area at all. This is probably super obvious to everyone from the area but was a bit of a nightmare for us since we’d just driven about 10 hours and had nowhere else to go! We ended up park... more

We stayed there twice this last summer. The first stay we had planned on staying 14 days however the Rangers came through & told us because we were homeless we had to leave. They don't want the homeless living there, we weren't living there, we were camping like everyone else They didn't say anything to the 3 rvs that had been there... more
