Status: Closed through Thu May 22 2014 Season Dates
OverviewLake Harriet Campground sits in a wide-open meadow on the eastern shores of crystal clear Lake Harriet. It is located between the Oak Grove Fork of the Clackamas River, which flows into the lake, and the nearby forest highway. It is a great location for camping, fishing and boating.
The campground is surrounded by a sparse forest of alder trees that provide limited shade to the area. It is situated at an elevation of about 2,000 feet in the Mt. Hood National Forest. The 22-acre lake and surrounding wilderness are sheltered from the wind in a narrow, heavily forested canyon of Oregon's Cascade Mountain Range.
Boating, canoeing and fishing on Lake Harriet are popular activities. The lake is stocked with rainbow trout each year, resulting in easy fly fishing. Anglers can also expect to catch cutthroat and brown trout, which spawn in the nearby river. Campers also enjoy swimming in the clear waters. The campground offers a boat ramp and fishing dock for easy lake access.
The campground offers less than a dozen accessible single-family campsites for tent and RV camping. Each site is equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Accessible vault toilets and drinking water are provided.
The Ripplebrook Ranger Station is located just over 6 miles west of the campground. A variety of services can be found there, including a general store and visitor center.
