House Rock Campground

Area Status: Closed
This area is Closed

House Rock Campground is perched on the confluence of Sheep Creek and the South Santiam River in an old growth forest grove at 1600-foot elevation with 17 campsites, including 5 tent-only sites. There is limited turn-around space, RVs or trailers over a total of 22 feet are not recommended. The campground road and parking spurs are composed of packed dirt and rock. The double-loop area comes with accessible vault toilets and drinking water from hand pumps. Picnic tables, campfire rings and grills are at each site. The campground host sells firewood.

Campers can enjoy hiking the House Rock Trail, which starts at the day-use area. Part of the trail shares paths with the historic Santiam Wagon Road. Swimming is popular, especially because many sites have riverfront access to shallow swimming areas. Anglers can cast for native cutthroat trout.
