Who doesn't love to camp as a way to connect with the natural world? There's a long tradition of camping in the Gorge - from backpacking to RVs. Everyone finds a different balance between their rugged, inner wild and the joy of a few luxuries. Regardless of your go-to camping style, please tread lightly on our natural and cultural resources, keep other people's experience in mind, and generally remember to Recreate with Respect! Please be aware that there is a 14-day stay limit at all Forest Service campgrounds.
The National Scenic Area is proud home to Eagle Creek, the first developed Forest Service campground in the United States, built in 1916. For those who crave the road less traveled, we do offer more opportunities for solitude via a network of trails that provide access to the Mark O. Hatfield Wilderness. Note, however, that many area trails (including Eagle Creek Trail itself) are still closed as repair work and hazards remain from the 2017 Eagle Creek Fire.
So pack up the essentials (and maybe a few luxuries, too) and enjoy our scenery!
