Located in the Rock Creek drainage, this campground is situated above Rock Creek in a mixed conifer forest. This area is known for its blue ribbon trout stream and rugged canyon environment.
The Dalles Campground is a nice pleasant campground with 10 sites along Rock Creek. Situated in a mature lodge pole pine forest all the site have plenty of shade. All sites have picnic tables and metal fire rings. Site has a water hand pump and ADA vault toilet. Site 1 was interesting as you have to walk up an embankment to reach the site, which makes it not visible from the campground road. A bear proof locker is available for food storage. Being along Rock Creek gives those who wish to fish access to the blue ribbon stream with brown trout, rainbow trout, and brook trout. Cost is $6 per night. All the sites are nicely spread apart. The road to Dalles campground is not recommended for RVs of trailers as it get pretty bumpy after the pavement ends, this only get worse the further you travel down the road, but is doable if you drive very slow.
