OverviewIndian Henry Campground is located in the Mount Hood National Forest, along the scenic Clackamas River. The campground is a great location for relaxation and a spectacular outdoor experience, providing ample access to the river and the surrounding wilderness, as well as other scenic spots in the area.
The campground is situated at an elevation of 1,249 feet, in Oregon's Cascade Mountains, nestled in a mixed forest of conifers and hardwoods, including grand old Douglas firs and a variety of evergreens. A thick gathering of ferns and ivy increase privacy between campsites. Some sites overlook the river and others neighbor a mountain creek.
The family-friendly Clackamas River Trail is popular for hiking and mountain biking and begins at the upper end of the campground. It extends about 8 miles and climbs about 450 feet in elevation along the way. It is available year-round, but may be covered in snow during winter months. The Indian Henry Trail, which trolls through the forest, is also located near the campground.
The large campground offers dozens of single-family campsites for tent and RV camping. Tent-only sites are available for reservation, while the rest of the sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
The picturesque, blue-green Surprise Lake is located not far from the campground, up a steep climb. It is most popular for fishing, as the lake isn't large enough for motorized boats.
