    “I just stayed at Gone Creek Campground in Oregon . . . the campground is very nice; each site has lots of room. No water or electric, but if that is OK it is a great place. Near Mt. Hood with all its attractions; the lake was fun to boat on and limited to 10 MPH so it was peaceful and not just dodging the speed boats. The campground hosts were very nice and helpful. Had a great time.” – Leslie G
