Status: Closed through Thu Jun 12 2014 Season Dates
OverviewStill Creek Campground lies in the shadows of majestic Mt. Hood, in Oregon's Mt. Hood National Forest. It is one of the closest campgrounds to the mountain, and offers access to a variety of recreational opportunities. The surrounding area contains hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding trails, as well as numerous mountain lakes, rivers and creeks.
The campground sits on the banks of Still Creek just south Mt. Hood at an elevation of about 3,700 feet. It is surrounded by a lush forest of mixed conifers, including cedar, pine and fir trees. A dense understory of shrubs makes for ample privacy between sites. The creek can be heard throughout the campground.
A variety of hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding trails can be accessed from the campground, including the historic Barlow Trail. The somewhat primitive, 1-mile trail connects the campground with the town of Government Camp.
The campground offers more than two dozen single-family sites for tent and RV camping. Utility hookups are not provided and parking surfaces are an assortment of dirt, gravel and paved. Water disposal sites are scattered throughout the campground.
A fork on Forest Road 1825 that accesses the campground will lead to the trailhead for spectacular Ramona Falls on the Sandy River. The 7.1-mile, moderately difficult trail leads to cascading waterfalls and is one of the most popular hikes in the Mt. Hood National Forest.
