Amazing camp hosts

This place is quiet. Clean and the hosts are amazing. Although a lot of the campsites need tree removal as if you have a group or large equipment, it problem won't fit. It does need improvements. But for the price and usually an open spot. It's worth it. Plus it's a short drive to Trillium lake.…

My family has been coming here for decades. Unfortunately the last 5-6 years is become way over crowded.

Small and sweet campground in Eastern Mt Hood Wilderness

Pebble Ford is a small and sweet campground on the East side of Mt Hood. Not too far from Meadows and Parkdale ... and even not to far for an overnight or weekend away from Portland.

The first come sites are just off of Forest Road 44 >> Dufur Valley Road. There is a main circle of sites…

Dispersed Camping Near McNeil Campground

The actual campground is closed during the winter months, but the dispersed camping in this area is great. Plenty of space and nice flat areas with several established fire pits. Lots of wildlife in the area when I was there in December.

This location has comfortable camping sites. The biggest draw is the most beautiful reflection of Mt. Hood across the river. There is a trail that goes along the edge of river along the shoreline close to the sites. During the day it is heavily trafficked but peaceful as the evening starts.

Private space

This campground has great privacy and a nice feeling of being tucked away in your space. Plenty of room for tent and chairs with a long picnic table. The camp store offers essentials as well as fun souvenirs. The lake has rentable canoes and kayaks. The trail around the lake is gorgeous!

Nice Location

I'm always a bit hesitant with the side of the road sites, but need not for this one. The road is paved and there are a number of spots, some literally just a big shoulder, others with plenty of room to park; our van had plenty of room, and I think a big rig would be fine, but the bigger spots…

9/30 camping

Camped here on 9/30. We were one of three people there plus the camp host. Note: I think after 9/25 it is only first come first serve! Can’t reserve online or see what’s available. CASH ONLY on arrival. Otherwise semi private spots for a typical campground. We stayed at spot 12A with a 50ft walk to…

Good availability, clean toilets

We stayed here as Trillium Lake was full. You can hear trucks from the highway and Frog Lake itself is rather unimpressive truthfully, but it was quiet and the vault/pit toilets were the cleanest I've ever used. The camp guests were quiet and respectful, which made it worth it. I'm not sure things…

Beautiful Campground, not much around to do

Beautiful campsite, but there isn’t really anything around to do- (unless you’ve reserved the space - I was there on a first come). Probably better for non solo campers.

At the foot of Mt Hood

Super close to all Mt Hood day trip activities. We took in a day on the stunning Trillium Lake. Visited during fire season so no campfires were allowed. No amenities, hookups or water for RVs but large sites can be found if you search a bit. Lots of large rocks and snags on the ground so keep an…

Very nice site

Loved the site. We stayed a week. Other than the disrespectful drivers, flying through the camping areas, throwing dust everywhere. And the van dwellers, who think that rules don't apply to them, leaving their garbage all over the place. And I say van dwellers, because we have cleaned up five…
