Absolutely beautiful

If you want to camp in Oregon this is the place to go. There are several waterfalls and hiking trails. You can see wildlife and you can't beat the beauty. You can tent camp and they also have yurts.

Easy Family Camping

A quick 35 minute drive from Portland, Barton Park is an easy destination for family-friendly camping. 

We camped here the first weekend in June with two other families, all with toddlers around the same age. The kids enjoyed the two playgrounds, wading in the river, and walking some nature…

RV camping sites sandy AF

Tent camping sites looked amazing next to the river! Sadly, RVs are only allowed in a handful of sites which were all very sandy and less shaded. We stayed at site #5 which was probably the worst site for both issues but it was also the only one left on a weekend. We tried to cross the river to…

Huge Campsites

Lots of dispersed camping right on lake edge. Beautiful views of mount hood on clear days. Bring bug spray if it's spring or summer! Developed camp sites are spaced further apart than most campgrounds.

so much fun!

We stayed at Detroit Lake in the summer of 2020 when we were desperate for things to do that were even open.

Our campsite was right on the lake and near one of the boat docks.  The campground is in a beautiful forest and the breeze off the lake made the hot summer temperatures bearable.

We rode…

beautiful campground with bonus waterfall hikes

Silver Falls is awesome to visit and the campground is great if you have the opporunity to stay for a day or two.

Beautifully forested and close to the waterfalls, the campground has all the features you could need.  Tent sites, rv sites, and cabins.  It's very popular and can sometimes be hard to…

Stunning camping in a temperate rainforest. Sites are big and private. Very quite and tons of near empty trails even with a full campground on a weekend in the summer. Walking, bike, and horse trails. Close to the ten waterfall trail on the day use area.

Wonderful Place

What a beautiful park and campground! The hiking is epic, campground is clean and has everything you could possibly need including clean bathrooms and showers, firewood, and water access. Can't wait to go back.

Very Beautiful, but avoid Weekends

This place gets CROWDED, and is hard to drive around/walk around due to the amount of day users.  Stayed in a cute yurt which was a bit of walk from the lake (~.25 mi) which is fine but getting my kayak down was a bit of a pain due to the amount of people occupying the road/parking etc.   Stunning…

Quiet and Clean

We camped in Mid June and were 1 of 3 sites occupied. The campground was extremely clean and quiet. The park host and ranger were helpful and made sure they were available for any questions or needs we had. We stayed on loop A and some of the sites are close together. Be prepared to bring in enough…

More of a Full Time Park

This park is more for full time living. Not much to do here. The Columbia River is across the street but there is no access because there is a yacht club, it's fenced around.

Just off of the 26

Several campsites off Kiwanis Camp Road with some next to a stream. Just a few cars passing after Sundown, but generally quite and peaceful.

Just amazing

Got here Saturday and passed by quite a few cars to find a spot on the road. Little did I know I was parking next to a rushing creek and beautiful moss! Knock on wood, no rangers have passed by to ask me how long I’m staying or have been here. Exactly one hour from Portland and 2 bars of phone…

Peaceful family site with close hike

We stayed at site 73 which was semi private and close to the area where extra vehicles park. At this area was also access to the south falls trailhead. Which was nice for us to just walk from our campground to the falls. Heading towards the falls is a large area for picnicking and day use. The…
