Great for Biking and Hiking

So nice to have first come/first serve campgrounds so close to Portland. I arrived around 2 on a Wednesday in August and grabbed one of 3 open sites. (There are group sites also that were FCFS, but they cost more.) 

I'd read about the hiking trail right outside the campground, but was super stoked to find a paved off-road bike trail. I took it 6 miles up to Venieto State Park.  Along the highway, but still very pretty. Waterfalls and great scenery!

Yes, you can hear the highway from the sites. Lots of trees, though and lots of privacy. No hook ups. Decent Verizon coverage.

Easy getaway from the city

I love the vibe of this campground - lots of tall trees and shade and a little bit of distance from the other campsites. Right at the back of the campground is a trailhead for some amazing forest hikes in the gorge.  There are no hook ups for RVs but every site is big enough to accommodate my 21’ travel trailer. The sign at entrance says 30 foot max length for trailers.  There is a faint whoosh sound of the freeway down the hill, but I find this campground delightfully serene even with the distant traffic noise.
