Oklahoma Campground

Gifford Pinchot National Forest

Oklahoma Campground is nestled in a lush grove of large hemlock, cedar, maple and fir trees alongside the Little White Salmon River, near the Columbia River Gorge. The campground is flat and is ideal for smaller groups to camp in clusters.

This campground offers some tent-only sites as well as sites for RVs up to 40 feet. Site 12/13 is a double site and must be reserved as such and can accommodate up to 16 people. Parking spurs are unpaved and may be lumpy.



The campground offers amenities such as picnic tables, fire rings and potable water. Vault toilets are also available.
