About This Campground

Wildwood Recreation Site is located along the Mount Hood Scenic Byway near the town of Welches, Oregon. Mount Hood, Oregons tallest mountain, beckons travelers through a forested corridor to wade the waters of the Wild and Scenic Salmon River. This day-use area is home to a wide range of recreation facilities and the Cascade Streamwatch Trail. Visitors have a chance to explore natural stream and wetland ecosystems along accessible interpretive trails and boardwalks and observe native fish in a unique, underwater fish viewing chamber. Natural Features: Nestled in a bend of the spectacular Wild and Scenic Salmon River, Wildwood Recreation Site encompasses 550 acres of beautiful land forested with old-growth Douglas fir, western hemlock, and western red cedar. Dense vegetation provides nice privacy between sites. Recreation: Hiking and wandering the boardwalks at Wildwood is the best way to experience the park. The Cascade Streamwatch Trail is an accessible, 3/4-mile paved loop that features quality educational displays, picturesque views of the Salmon River and a fish viewing window below stream level. The Wetlands Trail is an accessible, 3/4-mile loop trail leading to the challenging Boulder Ridge Trail, which is a 4.7-mile hike up the steep slopes of Huckleberry Mountain into the Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness. Visitors also enjoy swimming and fishing in the cool, clear waters of the Salmon River. Facilities: Wildwood is an excellent place for large groups, company picnics or special events. The site offers family picnic units, several group shelters, outdoor picnic kitchens, athletic fields, volleyball and basketball courts and fully accessible trails. Picnic tables, fire rings and grills are available at each site. Flush toilets and drinking water are also provided.
