Meditation Campground is a small walk-in campground on the shores of Timothy Lake. Campers should park at the Westshore Day Use area to access the campground. The rustic sites are limited to groups of six campers each. It is 4 sites and is accessible by boat, bike or hike-in only. There is a toilet there and each site is equipped with a table and fire ring.
After I was recommended to come here by a few friends, I made the trek.
It is a beautiful site, primitive, and not a lot of space.
We decided to camp along the fire road before you get here. This turned out to be an amazing site, lots of space and a natural fire ring.
We fished, grilled up our fresh fish and swam until we were all cooked.
I brought my kayak and ended up trolling of that to make my catch.
Warning: there were a ton of bees. Mostly hidden in the ground, so just be super care… I think my sister and I each got 5 stings.
Born and raised in Oregon this is always a favorite camping spot growing up. The only downside to this place is its popular! Going off season or during the week day is definitely the best way to go. Bring lots of drinking water as there is none available at sites and of course lots of firewood and good people! Perfect place for the whole family to fish, paddle board, kayak, hike, Etc… And of course see gorgeous views of Mount Hood.
Although the place is a little out there, the campsites are great. We did dispersed camping and were amazed happy to find that even the dispersed sites came with a fire circle and logs. Great time!
lots of easy access to the lake. Well maintained campgrounds. There are water faucets, not for drinking.
I ended up parking on the side of the road, and hiked in to the other side of the lake! There was a nice area that looked like someone had camped previously so I set up camp for the night there! There are many camp sites though, and they are all pretty nice, well kept, and all have bathrooms within a short walking distance. They are kind of close to one another, but everyone seemed pretty respectful. The road is actually pretty nice up there compared to most. There are also many hikes, and other lakes that are close by. Definitely hike on the PCT~
We were able to get a spot midweek. Beautiful spot on the end of the peninsula. Easy 1.5 mile hike in.
