Gorgeous!! Bring hiking shoes & a headlamp.

The only thing missing from this amazing camping spot is electricity and running water. Otherwise, it’s perfect! Absolutely gorgeous view of Mt. Hood, tons of hiking, a beautiful lake and camping spots for everyone. They have walk-in spots, yurts, a-frames, RV spots, a horse camp and even a few rooms at the lodge. Make sure to spend at least 3-4 days!

Great for family camping.

Most sites are very large and tiered, which I like - feels like separate area for cooking, sleeping & relaxing by the water. Great trail around the lake, boat rentals, and a little store for the things you forgot.

Views of Mt. Hood

If you want endless, beautiful views of Mt. Hood I would highly recommend coming here. The views are spectacular, I honestly couldn't get enough of it.

Pros:

  1. Views of Mt. Hood- THE BEST
  2. Lost Lake- Fun water activities. My family brought our kayak, and I spent most of my morning on the water.
  3. Rental Shop- This shop is close by, and is a great place to head to if you need any rentals. My brother went here and rented some fishing gear. They also have a little shop with snacks, which is always great!
  4. Boat Dock- Great for getting your boat in the water.
  5. Campsites are great, and pretty good size. Doesn't make you feel like you are crowding your neighbor. They also take reservations which is great for the busy times of the month. They also have first come first serve sites as well for those people who want to camp last minute.
  6. Great hiking- Highly recommend asking the station what hikes are nearby. They were super helpful and pointed us in the right direction.

Cons:

  1. Bathrooms were a little dirty- but honestly its hard to expect campground bathrooms to be super well kept.
  2. Crowded- I guess this is to be expected during the summer months

Overall- I would highly recommend coming and staying here. The people who work here are super friendly and helpful. I love that they have a little store on site. This was helpful because we forgot to bring smore makings (don't know how we forgot!!) and the store saved us!! They also have little cabins you can rent- not sure what the cost is. They also have spots for RVS with hookups. The rental shop is also super nice!! You can rent canoes ($22 an hr), kayaks ($22 an hr), and you can also rent smaller things like: vest, fishing poles, etc..
