Description

There are many dispersed campsites along Barlow Creek--and Barlow Crossing Campground is not one to pass up. Unless of course, if you’re arriving late on a Friday to find that all six sites are already taken! Plan ahead, pack water (or a filter), and do a dance of joy for the trash pickup service at this campground--truly an overlooked luxury. Before you head out, check the current conditions for accessibility during the winter months.

UPDATE: MOSTLY CLOSED. The bridge to the campsites and vault toilet (and trash pickup) has been condemned and intentionally blocked off by huge fallen trees (and later boulders to prevent off-road crossings through the creek itself). There are still a few spots near the creek, kind of RV friendly and the toilet can be accessed on foot, but it is no longer serviced. I think this happened in late 2017. The dispersed camping along the creek North of the bridge is still accessible from the Northern approach to 3530 but only in high-clearance vehicles.

Being nestled away in the Mt. Hood forest makes it a little difficult to navigate to, however once you set up camp right on the ice cold, (literally melted glacier water), crystal clear creek, you're all set for a great stay of trail hiking, light rafting, and plenty of deer sighting. Great for group camping or a little hideaway.
