Overview

Still 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.

Natural Features:

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.

Recreation:

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.

Fly-fishing is a popular activity on Still Creek. Anglers can expect a variety of trout and occasional whitefish and salmon.

Facilities:

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.

Sites are equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Accessible vault toilets and drinking water are provided. Firewood is available for purchase at or near the campground.

Nearby Attractions:

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.

Timberline Lodge, a National Historic Landmark on Mt. Hood, is located within seven miles of Still Creek Campground. Sightseeing and a variety of recreational opportunities are available. The area is a popular snow sports playground for most of the year.

Know Before You Go
  • In accordance with standard industry practices, Mount Hood Recreation will be assessing a $8 additional vehicle fee on the 'second vehicle' in each single family campsite, and on the 'third and fourth vehicle' in any double family campsite, provided these vehicles are not joined to the first vehicle by a hitch and towed onto the site. In the case of motorcycles, the first two are considered as one vehicle for determining additional vehicle fees. The third and fourth motorcycle would also be considered as one vehicle. No additional vehicle fees are collected for bicycles.
  • Off-road vehicle use is prohibited within the campground
