In the case of motorcycles, the first two are considered as one vehicle for determining additional vehicle fees. The third and fourth motorcycle would also be considered as one vehicle. No additional vehicle fees are collected for bicycles.

Overview

Overview

Rock 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.

Natural Features:

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.

A variety of wildlife make its home in the area and eagles are commonly spotted nesting.

Recreation:

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.

An unmarked trail connects the campground to nearby Sportsman Campground, which offers a network of off-road vehicle trails.

A boat ramp, picnic area and hiking trail are available at the adjacent day use area.

Facilities:

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.

Each site is equipped with a table and campfire ring with grill. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided, but utility hookups are not available. Water disposal locations can be found throughout the campground. Parking surfaces are gravel. Firewood can be purchased from host.

Nearby Attractions:

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.
