So great! But plan ahead!

Lost Lake is so wonderful.  Beautiful warm water to swim in and scenic beauty everywhere you look.  Sit by the lake and soak it all in.  This is a very special place.

Close to PDX

This is a nice spot that is close to PDX if you're looking for a quick overnight to get out of the city.  Close to Lolo Pass.  Pretty basic sites with no water available.  Pit toilets are available.  Great view of Mt. Hood from the entrance of the campground and even better views from Lolo Pass.

Great spot

Very clean and the staff is helpful. Great place for the entire family with the river within walking distance.

Ok park

We stayed 2 days. Good for a quick overnight stay in a pinch. Quite a few better parks along the Gorge. 80% are full timers and their spots are not well maintained. Lots of airport noise overhead. Train goes through but didnt blow horn. Did have full hookups.

Close to the PDX area but busy and uninteresting

Just a short drive from the western suburbs this place seems to be popular with families with small kids or those that really don't want to commit to a bigger adventure.  Good amenities but overall uninteresting considering the vast array of options in this part of the state.  I could see this a s quick weekend family trip but I wouldn't go out of my way to go there if I had more time.  Good access to biking and some OK hiking.  Lots of options for horses, RVs, as well as tents.  THere were cabins but I was not able to peak inside.

Note that the walk-in sites are closed until spring '21 for 'tree thinning'.

Swift Forest Camp

Awesome little spot up the street from Beaver Bay. The campground itself is clean and the hosts are really nice. Campsites are on the smaller side and there is a weird mix of cabins and campground.

Water was really low when we visited in late august so not too many boats on the water which made it very peaceful.

Beaver Bay Campground

We had been coming here for the past several years just to play in the water, this year we decided to stay an evening to really check it out. Campground is nice, bathrooms are clean but the spaces are way to close together especially if you are in a tent; you can hear everything. Not too many lights so we were able to see the comet that was going over us in late July.

No alcohol allowed but the town of Cougar is minutes away…

Returned in late august and the water in the lake was green with algae (gross! gross! gross!)

Hidden gem

This is a beautiful setting along the Columbia River Gorge. Every campsite has a view of the river. There are only 23 first come first serve camp sites that are nicely spaced and taken care of. It is for🏕 tents and RV alike. It is rustic but comfortable. There is a bathhouse at the other end of the park with showers and flush toilets. There can be a little train noise from time to time, so if you are a light sleeper, bring some earplugs. Fun for the whole family. And don’t worry, the camp host is no pushover and will address those(1 star reviewers)who refuse to follow the simple rules that keep this place a wonderful camping experience.

Tent Camping at Ainsworth

This was my second camping trip in years.  The 5 or 6 spot are great.  They are somewhat secluded.  You could see you neighbors.  Would camp there again.  Very convenient for hiking and being close to the gorge to beat the crowds the following day.

Absolutely gorgeous, beware of skunks!

Silver falls is one of my most favorite parks to explore. Of course the trail of ten falls is amazing, but the smaller trails around the campground are great too. We played in the creek, picked salmon berries and huckleberries. They have great bathrooms, but the showers weren’t open this time due to COVID and neither was programs. There was a skunk in camp the 2 nights we were there. Thankfully no spraying, but it was kind of sketchy LOL. Gorgeous park as always.
