About

USDA Forest Service

Mt. Hood National Forest

Overview

Nestled in a cove between Hoodview and Gone Creek, Stone Creek includes a day-use area with a non-motorized boat access, trail access, picnicking and a view of Mt. Hood. Separate tent and RV loops limit the sound of generators. Two equestrian-friendly group camps are located across the road.

Recreation

Proximity to Timothy Lake allows campers to enjoy a variety of water-related recreation activities, including boating and sailing, as well as swimming, windsurfing and fishing. Anglers can expect a catch of kokanee salmon and a variety of trout.__ ____ A range of trails are located in the area. The Timothy Lake Trail is popular for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. The 12 miles of relatively level terrain loops trekkers around the lake, providing scenic views of the area. It connects to the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail, a lengthy hike that extends across three states, from the borders of Canada and Mexico. Portions of that trail also lead southwest to Clackamas Lake Campground. ______ The Clackamas Lake Ranger Station Historic District is less than 3 miles from the campground. It was built to house forest service workers in the early 1900s. The rustic architecture and historic nature of the buildings and the surrounding area draws thousands of tourists each year.

Natural Features

Timothy Lake was created in 1956 as a storage reservoir for the Oak Grove Hydroelectric Project. It is one of the larger lakes in the Mt. Hood National Forest.__ __ The campground is nestled in a mixed conifer forest. The day use area offers views of Mt. Hood. A thick understory of rhododendron bushes provide privacy between sites.
