Big Lava Bed is located just west of the campground. The trail takes hikers through a landscape marked by basalt lava formations and pine forest.
This campground offers some tent-only sites as well as sites for RVs up to 40 feet. Sites 12 and 13 are reserved together to accommodate up to 16 people. Parking spurs are unpaved and may be lumpy.
Oklahoma Campground's proximity to the Columbia River Gorge and Mount Adams, makes it an ideal base for exploring those areas.
