Sugar Creek Campground Thumb 01

Sugar Creek Campground and Day Use Area are among the most highly developed recreational sites on the Ochoco National Forest.  The campground offers three moderately accessible campsites and all pathways are ADA compliant.  The setting of the facility is a young ponderosa pine forest, straddling a creek with easy access to a paved Forest Service Road. Opportunities for picnicking with a large group exist in the Day Use Area.  Additionally, a short hike and wildlife viewing along Sugar Creek Trail are available throughout the facility.

Come take a break from civilization and enjoy the fresh pine scented air at Paulina Ranger District's most desirable campground!
