Campground Camping

The forest has many campgrounds. Visit mid-week to avoid crowds. Campgrounds are available by reservation or on a first-come, first-served basis.

For campground reservations visit, or call 1-877-444-6777.  Make sure that you know the specific campground name rather than just the recreational area (i.e. Hood View Campground vs. Timothy Lake).

Many campgrounds in the Clackamas River Ranger District were heavily damaged during the 2020 Riverside Fire and will not open in 2021.  Learn more about the fire's impacts on the forest.

Many recreation sites offer barrier-free access.

For additional campground information please contact your local ranger district office.
