Wyeth Campground is a beautiful site, fully paved, among Douglas-fir and bigleaf maple trees, with access to hiking on Wyeth Trail #411 and Gorge Trail #400 via Wyeth/Gorton Creek Trailhead. It offers 13 individual sites and 3 group sites. All but 2 individual sites are reservable up to 6 months in advance. Sites 1 and 2 are available on a first-come, first-served basis only. Most days between Memorial Day and Labor day are fully booked. No hookups. No water. Please come prepared and bring the water you will need with you. The Wyeth area was an early settlement site and was later used as a CCC camp in the 1930's and a Conscientious Objector camp in the 1940's.
This is a beautiful campground. We needed an overnight stop and were lucky to find this gem. Heavily wooded with well spaced terraced sites in the trees. They have 2 FCFS sites that were both open at 6pm when we arrived ($20 or $10 w/ access passes). There were 3 group sites available as well. Level pads for rvs with ample space to back in. Fire rings picnic tables, flush toilets, potable water spigots, firewood for sale. There is a fishing dock just across the road on the river. As noted by others, there is some noise from the 84, however it’s not terrible and proximity was important for this stop. Would recommend and camp here again.
Quiet campground, easily accessible from Portland.
Easy access to biking along the Columbia River.
Sites are well distance apart, some more private than others depending on trees and terrain.
Water, trash and toilets available. There is a host on site as well.
Some highway noise during the night but the campground is located directly off of the highway so it's to be expected.
We plan to return.
One of my favorites! I’ve returned several times. Great trails nearby, river etc.
This is a beautiful campground. We snagged one of the non reservable sites Labor Day weekend last year only to have to evacuate because of the Eagle Creek fire. Would love to go back. There is a wonderful trail and stream to explore rught from the campground.
