Clear Lake Campground (Oregon) Make a Reservation

Mt. Hood National Forest
541 328-0909
45.17945 / -121.69675

The campground is a single loop on the eastern shore of Clear
Lake.  The east side of Clear Lake is hilly resulting in a
terraced campground and parallel style pull-through parking
aprons along the lake.  Other pull-throughs, on the uphill side
of the loop, have a steep approach.  A steady breeze off Clear
Lake helps keep mosquitoes at bay.  A nice mixture of conifers,
including hemlock and Pacific Silver fir, provide ample shade.
Some rhododendron provide fair privacy.  Firewood is available
for a fee.

LOCATION: From Government Camp, OR, take US Rt. 26 east 9.2 miles to
campground sign.  Turn right at sign onto Forest Rt. 2630 and go
1 mile to campground.

    I have gone camping at Clear Lake since I was a baby. Just went this last weekend. It’s always been my favorite. The last few years it seems to be getting more and more polluted. I filled a LG bag full of garbage around the campground before feeling comfortable unpacking. I also hauled it all out to the dumpster. I wish others would clean up as well as we do.
