Nice place overall

The road noise is a bit loud, if you can, pick a site near the river. We picked No 1. The vault toilets are ok. Pretty clean over all. I think the $21 a night is a bit much considering there is no potable water. The hike to the falls is awesome. Can be pretty trying in places, especially with fur babies. Sadly there was a burn ban. But it’s to be expected this time of year, we came in Sept. it’s just up the road from us, it’s pretty dusty this time of year so I would bring a broom for your tents or RV’s. The trees are nice and provide nice shade.

Noisy next to the road

It got to be very cold in the morning in late July. Noisy next to the road but our neighbors were quiet.

Easy walk to the falls.

Very nice roadside camping spot.

Be prepared for the semi trucks waking you up! So loud! I got a large spot by the stream/river which was very nice and calm. Bugs were not bad.

Forest fun near great hike

Nice campground with a friendly host right near the water. No cell service so we were able to enjoy nature and each other. Bring water! There is no potable water at the site. Parking is a little tricky and you are directly off of the freeway. Noise from cars is constant but the water near by sounds nice. There’s a great hike just up the road - Tamanawas Fall Trail. Rumor has it the hike is only a mile but it’s more like 4 round trip but there’s a great waterfall at the end. Just be prepared for longer than a mile and a few steep parts and loose rocks. Easy access to East Fork Hood River. I had a great time with my friends cut really would preferred a quieter spot.

Great campground if you get the right spot

The campground is right off of hwy 35 which creates a lot of road noise. We luckily had site #6 so the water drowned out a lot of the cars. There is also a lot of hiking nearby. We hiked the Tamanawas Falls Trail and loved it. Vault toilets.

Nice & Clean

I stayed here in early May and was very pleased. This is a small, quiet campground right off Hwy 35 near Mt. Hood on Hood River. It has a few walk-up sites and the rest are reservable. It fills up fast! The trees and the river help muffle the sound of traffic on the highway. There is no camp host at this site, but the host from the Nottingham Campground up the road comes by with firewood and is very helpful. There is no water so you'll need to bring plenty of water for your stay. I would definitely stay here again.
