ROCK CREEK (OR), OR
Status: Open through Sun Oct 06 2013 Season Dates
OverviewRock Creek Campground sits on the shores of scenic Rock Creek Reservoir in the pine-covered mountains of Mt. Hood National Forest. It is a family-friendly campground with many sites right on the water's edge. The campground provides access to a variety of recreational activities, as well as historic sites throughout the forest.
The campground is situated in a stand of mixed oak and pine trees, along the southeastern shore of the 180-acre reservoir, which is rarely at capacity because it is used for irrigation purposes. At an elevation of about 4,600 feet, the campground provides scenic views of the adjacent lake and surrounding forest.
The reservoir is a popular spot for fishing, canoeing and boating, however, boats must have electric motors. Anglers can expect a catch of bass and bluegill, and the lake is regularly stocked with rainbow trout.
The campground offers single-family sites for tent and RV camping. RVs over 35 feet are not recommended. Some sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Overflow camping is available in the day use area for a fee.
The campground is about 30 miles from the town of Government Camp at the base of Mt. Hood. Year-round skiing, a variety of trailheads and many sightseeing opportunities can be found there.
