Overview

House Rock Campground is perched on the confluence of Sheep Creek and the South Santiam River in an old growth forest grove.

Campers enjoy hiking the House Rock Trail, which starts at the day-use area. Part of the trail shares paths with the historic Santiam Wagon Road, a trail used to transport livestock east across the Cascade Mountains to central Oregon's grasslands.

Natural Features:

House Rock Campground is perched on the confluence of Sheep Creek and the South Santiam River in an old growth grove.

The river is a 66-mile tributary of the Santiam River that is fed by snowmelt from the Cascade Mountains.

Recreation:

Swimming is popular, especially because many sites have riverfront access to shallow swimming areas. Anglers can cast for native cutthroat trout.

In addition to the House Rock Trail, hikers have access to a variety of other trails in the Tombstone Pass Area, like the Iron Mountain Trail.

Facilities:

The campground road and parking spurs are composed of packed dirt and rock. The double-loop area comes with accessible vault toilets and drinking water from hand pumps. Picnic tables, campfire rings and grills are at each site. The campground host sells firewood.

Nearby Attractions:

Visit Foster Lake or Green Peter Lake for lake fishing and boating.
