Site map of Lost Creek campground

Lost Creek Campground is a fully accessible campground allowing anyone access to campsites, fishing and a paved nature trail that meanders through the area. The campground is also near the Wild and Scenic Sandy River and not far from the popular Ramona Falls Trailhead. Mt. Hood is just southeast of the campground and is close enough for visitors to enjoy a day trip and sightseeing.

This campground is constructed to be entirely barrier-free, offering the mobility-impaired access to campsites, the fishing platform, and a nature trail which meanders through the area. The campground is also near the Wild and Scenic Sandy River.
