Wyeth Campground is just off of Interstate 84 in a forested setting with grassy fields. There are 13 individual sites, three group sites, and a 24-hour camp host. In the past this site was a Seed Kiln, Guard Station, Church camp, Civilian Conservation Corps camp and Conscientious Objector Camp during World War II.
Paved roads, paths and aprons make this site easily accessible to all. The full-time onsite hosts maintain a central flush toilet restroom with hot and cold water. Each site is equipped with picnic tables and fire grills and many sites are fully accessible. There are no RV hookups or dump sites.
Please note that there are two US Forest Service campgrounds named "Wyeth" in Oregon. This one is in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic area on Interstate 84, exit 51. The other is on the Deschutes National Forest. Please make sure that you choose the one you intend to stay in.
There are no designated first-come, first-serve sites. Depending on reservations each day, some sites may be available for "walk-up" customers. Available dates will be posted at each site.
