Overview

Bear Springs Campground is an ideal destination for families and groups that enjoy the outdoors in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. It offers spacious group sites, single-family sites, and a day use area with a picnic shelter amid a forest of towering trees.

Natural Features:

The campground is located on the southeastern edge of Mt. Hood National Forest at an elevation of 3,000 feet. It is situated among towering pine and fir trees, but the beauty of the campground is its secluded feel. Deer and other wildlife are common in the area.

Recreation:

Bear Springs is not far from some great wilderness spots, including mountain lakes and streams, as well as trails and historic sites. A variety of short hiking and off-highway vehicle trails are available nearby for exploration. The Mt. Hood area and Government Camp are within a short drive from the campground. For water enthusiasts, rafting and kayaking opportunities abound on the nearby Deschutes River. Picnicking is also a popular activity.

Facilities:

The campground offers single-family and group sites for tent and RV camping. Each site is equipped with a table and campfire ring with grill. Vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection are provided, but utility hookups are not available. Parking surfaces are gravel and dirt. Firewood can be purchased from the host.

Nearby Attractions:

Bear Springs is near the Warm Springs Tribal Lands and is approximately 19 miles from Government Camp, where visitors may enjoy summertime snow skiing. It is also approximately 24 miles from the Deschutes River and less than one mile to Spring Drive RV Campground.
