Naked Falls

21 sites · RVs, Tents130 acres · Stevenson, Skamania
Naked Falls is the second largest waterfall on the Washougal River. This section of the river has been a hotspot for Kayakers and Cliff divers for decades. If you like watching Salmon run, this is a great place to do it. This is easy car access to a raw outdoor camping experience. You will be camping next to the crystal clear Washougal River and have access to Naked Falls and Reeder Falls. Come prepared as the nearest potable water source is at least a mile away and you won't see any lights or electrical outlets on the property. There are portables toilet now between sites 4 and 5 on the east side of the road and between sites 15 and 16 on the west side. Portable toilets taken out in Mid October and put back in in Mid March. Firewood is not delivered to each site if you order it. There are many good reasons for this, not the least of which is that it can rain and then all the wood gets wet. We keep the firewood in a small woodshed and give you instructions on where to find it and what the code is before you check in. Also, please remember that I don't live there and there is limited service on the property. If you have questions, please contact me in advance as I may be unreachable when you arrive at the property. The Campsites mostly go in the order they appear as you drive through the campground. With some exceptions. Sites 8 and 11 (in that order) are up the hill from the fork at site 2. Sites 12 through 19 are in order on the West side of the river. There are signs with the site numbers next to each site. The sites each have their own parking spaces. Please see the brief descriptions below so you have a good idea of what kind of experience you can expect at each site. If you are not familiar with the area, or even if you haven't camped there before, I recommend contacting me for directions or information about the area before you go up. Also, if you have an RV, you will want to contact me to discuss which site you really want to book depending on the size of your RV, awnings, slide outs, etc. Each booked site is allowed 2 cars or 1 RV. If you have more than 2 cars or 1 RV, there is a fee of 10.00 per additional vehicle. Camping was banned all along the upper Washougal River in 2006 due to abuse from the public. An attitude that no one could be trusted up there formed and I lost my favorite place to camp in the whole world...but I understood why they did it. In 2017 I bought the property and worked with Skamania County to restore camping and the public trust in good people who love nature. There are now 20 campsites, mostly along the river, and I'm so pleased that the vast majority of Hipcampers are reliable co-stewards of this amazing recreational resource. It is up to us to keep Naked Falls available by keeping in mind that it is a crucial fish and wildlife habitat and we are but visitors there. Be sure to stick to trails and pack in/pack out. Nothing from town should be left there and nothing there should be brought back to town. *** Site 1: Saltness Creek This is the only site with direct trail access to the river on the camping side. It's also right on a creek and encompasses a corner of the confluence of the creek and the Washougal River. It's a nice open space right off the gravel road which allows you to park right by where you will set up tents and have your campfire. It also means other campers will drive right by your site and they will need to pass by it to take the trail to the river. This site is very convenient but not very private. Site 2: Naked Falls There is a short narrow trail that leads to the campsite on the Naked Falls cliff. It's awesome! This is the original campsite at Naked Falls and has likely been there for 100 years or more. It overlooks the waterfall and island downstream. It's really the coolest campsite but it's not for everybody. The area for pitching tents is smaller than at the other sites. Only 2 medium sized tents will fit comfortably. You may be able to cram 3 tents in but should be aware that it's only really meant for 2. Groups larger than 6 may want to consider another site. Also, it is right on the cliff where people like to jump so, while you have the best view of all the fun stuff happening at the falls, you also have cliff divers coming up to say hi during the day. Site 3: Desk Job This site is just past the falls. It has a wide short trail to the camping area and a beautiful view of the river that passes right by the site about 30 ft below it. It is nice, quiet and secluded. Site 4: Middle Management This site is nice for pulling vehicles in and around. It loops around some trees in the center. The trees to the east and North are all alders so it has limited shade in the morning when there aren't leaves on the trees (winter and early spring) The trail down is wide and short. There is a small opening with a nice view of the river and it's quiet. A great place to listen to the flow of the river and the beat of your heart. Site 5: Conference Room The Conference Room is tucked into the woods a little more than the other sites. It's right over the river just like all the rest of the sites but the trees like living on that cliff...like a whole bunch. You can walk to the edge and see the river but it's not the most open view of the river. I love this site. It has two old growth stumps from the first harvest ever at Naked Falls. They tell stories of the Yacolt burn and a lot of hard winters. A short narrow trail get's you from your car to to the camping area in about 20 steps. Site 6: Printer Jam This site is quite large and has the most extensive view of the river. Great for bigger groups or bigger tents. This is a chill spot where you can roast marshmallows while watching the flow of the Washougal River 35 ft below. Site 7: Budget Meeting This site is not meant for vehicle traffic! Please do not drive your vehicle onto the site as that has caused damage to the site itself and it needs to recover. The last site on the road has the longest walk...about 50 yards. It is also a large space and is the most secluded. It's the longest distance from river access but also the most private. The walk down passes an old growth tree that must have fallen decades ago. It has a huge base and the root structure is about 12 ft tall. There are a variety of trees that hug this campsite. If you don't mind the walk, you are sure to dig the vibe at our version of a Budget Meeting. Site 8: The Slash Pile Please read this full description before booking. I'm giving this site a go because I think it's a rather unique experience for the right people. This site sits up above all the river sites. It is not on a river but has a river view and view of all the other campsites. It is surrounded by a slash pile which is the wood debris left over from logging. You can drive right to it but only if you have 4wd/AWD. The road is also surrounded by alder trees that might slap the side of your car as you go up so if you are concerned about that, this is not the spot for you. There is not much shade up there either. You may want to bring a shade tent. The site is fairly large and has plenty of room for tents but I don't recommend any trailers or RVs here due to the steep rocky road. Your walk to the river will be about as long as the walk from site 7. It will be an easy walk down and a bit of a trek up. If no one books this site, I will totally understand but It's a cool spot if you are cool with the challenges it presents. Site 9: Hard Scramble Creek This site is embedded in the woods and has the most tree cover. It is even further from the river access than site 8...about a half mile walk. There is plenty of room but only one way in and out so turning around should be thought out before you set up your tents. Also, I've seen people pull off trailering large rigs up there but I'm pretty sure it was painstaking. If you have a large RV or Trailer, I would skip this site. Smaller trailers and RVs should be fine if you have some experience and patience. This site is quiet and the sound of the creek is soothing during the day and night. Site 10: Rock Beach Woods This site is in the woods along the river near an inviting rock beach that flows into a crystal clear swimming hole. This site is not behind a gate and day use visitors are allowed to use the trail and access the rock beach. The rock beach gets less traffic than we have right by Naked Falls but it is part of the day use area. This is a park and walk site. Parking is along the main road and you hike in about 50 yards to the campsite. This is one of the coolest campsites we have. Literally cooler as it is along the river edge and not along a cliffside like most of the other sites. Also cooler because it is under deep tree cover with soft mossy terrain. If you like the sounds of the river, shady woods and very close access to swimming, you will love this site! Site 11: This One Goes to Eleven! Situated on the top of the hill, this site has the most impressive views of all the sites! About a 270 degree view of the surrounding mountain region give you a great vantage point that often includes eagles flying below you, elk across the valley and a variety of other wildlife. This site is the farthest from the river, civilization and all the other campsites. If you are looking for something remote and have a 4wd/AWD vehicle, this might be the best site for you. Sites 12-19: All of these sites are right near the West side of the river. They were designed to accommodate RVs and Trailers. They are made for one trailer or RV per site or 2 camper vans. Tents are fine here too. There is easy in and out access to each site. It is nearer to the W2000 road and the sites are a bit closer together. There is still a significant amount of treed space between each site, just not as much as the original campsites. They each have a fire pit and cleared space for tents along with the graveled area for parking your RV. The sites are fairly level but not perfect and some leveling may be required depending on the size of your RV. This area has it's own trail down to the river or you can use the day use trail just a short walk North past the wooden Naked Falls sign. There are 3 total vehicles allowed at each of these sites (no exceptions) that includes the rv or trailer. So, truck and trailer count as one and you can have one addition car...or you can have 3 cars if you are car or tent camping. There is a charge of 10.00 extra for the third vehicle. No parking is allowed along the W2000 road unless you have a Naked Falls parking pass for day use. Site 0. This is the old site 12 that I had closed down. It is just up the hill from the fork at site 2. So at the fork near site 2, you will take a left and go up the hill about a quarter of a mile. It will be on your right hand side before you get to site 8. This is a large site part way up a hill surrounded by trees about 15 ft high. Very little shade, so you will want to bring a shade tent in the Summertime.

Old growth cedar forest on vineyard

4 sites · Lodging, Tents11 acres · Beavercreek, Clackamas
Learn more about this land: Welcome to Calliope Vineyard and Retreat Center! Our campsites are on a small pond in an old growth cedar forest with a few trails to enjoy the stillness and magic of the woods.  Please let us know if you are needing a van camping spot opposed to tent camping in the woods. we also can split up your group if some are tent camping and others need van camping. We consider this land sacred. We are only caretakers passing through, and honor this place and the peoples it was taken from. Please be mindful of the energy of the forest, and all the people and animals who have come before. We donate 5% of earnings to "landback. Landback is an organization and movement motivated to get Indigenous lands back into indigenous hands. and to MMIW (missing and murdered indigenous women. This forest is home to beavers, coyote, deer, raccoons, salamanders, cougars, and many bird and bug species. You will have a good amount of space and privacy for your party, but may encounter others enjoying the forest as well. Included with the tent campsites, we provide a picnic table, and fire-pit (with an option to purchase wood) and a fire extinguisher for emergencies. There is also a good amount of wood that can be found on the ground, but keep in mind we have had a very wet spring. We respect fire bans. There is a brand new out house about a 3 minute walk from the campsites at the top of the small hill. This is a pit toilet, and we provide sawdust to use when done. When you arrive, take a right at the pool. Just across from the pool is the woodshed. You will see two parking spots to the left of the woodshed (Hobbit Hollow parking) and two on the right (Hobbit Circle) You can unload here. (We have carts if needed) Across from parking, and attached to the barn, is the water station, and instructions. You will be walking (or carting) your things down to the forest where you will pass the outhouse on the left. Walk down the path. For Hobbit Hollow, take the path to the left across the second bridge. For hobbit Circle, walk around the pond. The path around the pond to Hobbit Circle is bit narrow for the cart.   It is not a very long walk, but there is a decline, and you need to be a little hearty to camp here.  For Caravan camping, we provide car camping on the sport court, or have a few other options. We have a pool, hot tub, massage therapy, and an outdoor shower for an additional charge. (See Extras) The additional charge for the pool and hot tub is $15 per person for 90 minutes of hot tub time.  The pool is available any time after July 1st, and may be shared with us, but you must schedule the hot tub for privacy at the sign up sheet by the water station. The hot tub is to the right of the house down by the garden. The garden is very near the hot tub, so there could always be someone gardening.  You are welcome to walk the vineyard,and explore the front of the property. My neighbor Beth is a master gardener, and loves to give tours of her gardens.  We have delicious Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Malbec and a Rosé for purchase from our winery. (Inquire upon arrival) We take fire safety very seriously. Please make sure all fires are out completely before sleeping or leaving. If there is a fire ban, it will be upheld. If you smoke in the forest, please be very conscious of any sparks, and contain your butts in something to be taken away. Please let us know if you will be bringing a dog. We do have chickens, but they are mainly penned up. My neighbors have chickens who are loose. Please pick up after your dog as much as possible. They must not run off, and leashed in common areas. Do not let your dog run free to the neighboring properties. We can also accept larger groups, and can accommodate small wedding parties, celebrations, retreats, and gatherings that can include the vineyard,(front of property) a cabin, catering and more. (Inquire for pricing) Finally, if you are interested in an inside farm stay, Check out our Air B&B listing at "Portland Vineyard Haven"

Camp Cedar Creek

23 sites · RVs, Tents37 acres · Sandy, Clackamas
***PLEASE CLICK "SHOW MORE" AND READ EVERYTHING BEFORE BOOKING OR ASKING QUESTIONS. TLDR -- we are an AWD/4WD required, pack out what you pack in (no trash service), dog friendly (unleashed dogs are allowed) property*** Hi! We're Lauren and Jeremy (and Juno). We met through a van life community, and fell in love on the road, camping at different national parks and Hipcamp sites from Jeremy's RAV4 (our first month dating was spent traveling up and down the west coast). We are now the proud new owners of Camp Cedar Creek, an incredible 37-acre property that was built from the hands of the owner before us over the last 40 years. We're so honored to carry on his vision of this magical place, and share it with as many people exploring the Pacific Northwest as we can. We hope your stay here will bring you a deep sense of peace, inspire creativity, give you whatever it is you're in need of at this moment in time. Take a stroll down Cedar Creek, sit and read by one of the seven ponds, get your heart pumping on the hilly trails on the north side of the property, pick as many blackberries as you can find if in season. We can't wait to host you! Learn more about this land: Located right off Hwy 26, directly in between the city of Portland and the peak of Mt. Hood, you'll find the most peaceful corner of the Pacific Northwest for you to pitch your tent or park your van. We are conveniently located just 7 minutes from downtown Sandy, known for its food trucks, outdoor gear shops, and the famous Joe's Donuts. Though we are right off a busy highway, all you'll hear are the tranquil sounds of Cedar Creek's flowing waters and the chirping birds who live in the cedars overhead. The small clearings throughout the property provide natural privacy for our campers, and the 37 acres sprinkled with trails and ponds offer exploration and a sense of wonder we hope you'll enjoy. Please note: we have a vanlife community that utilizes the barn up on the hill (check out kift.com if you're a nomad or vanlifer looking for an awesome community on the road) and we also live up on the hill in the house next to the barn. NON-NEGOTIABLE RULES: PACK OUT WHAT YOU PACK IN, aka leave no trace - our most important campsite policy. We have no garbage cans or trash services. The trash you create will be your responsibility to take with you when you leave. And please don't place it at our neighbors house (yes, this has happened). If you leave your trash for us to clean up, we will charge a $100 cleaning fee. 4WD REQUIRED. Due to the traffic we've experienced recently, the steep gravel roads can be tough for some cars and rigs (particularly on the way out) so for everyone's safety, we are restricting access to only vehicles equipped to handle the terrain. We're sorry for the inconvenience. If you've been here before and know you can get by with your car, feel free to book again, but please do not message us asking us to advise on the vehicle you have. If we have to dig you out, we will charge a $200 fee. DOG FRIENDLY. We are as dog friendly as it gets here. Unleashed dogs are allowed on this property. If you have a fear of dogs, or have dogs that are not friendly with other people or fellow dogs, this probably isn't the right campsite for you. Of course, we expect all dog owners to keep an eye on their pets so they don't disturb other campers. NO FIREARMS, FIREWORKS OR ILLEGAL SUBSTANCE USE. This is not a late night party campsite. This property is best in the daylight and we encourage campers who want to take full advantage and will abide by the quiet hours. QUIET HOURS: 11pm-8am. While our individual sites are quite private we ask that you still keep the noise to a minimum between 11pm and 8am. We live onsite and will enforce these if we have to (please don't make us). OTHER INFO: CELL SERVICE. There is an AT&T tower on our property so that gets the best service by far. Verizon is pretty good. T-mobile does not get reception here. BATHROOMS. We have one porta-potty onsite during the summer season (late May through September). It's serviced every week.

Camping near Fairview guide

Just outside of Portland, Fairview is one of the last urban communities before Interstate 84 leads into the Columbia Gorge. If you’re around Portland for some Pacific Northwest camping, Fairview is an excellent spot to pick up groceries and supplies, and its close proximity to the camping and hiking opportunities along the Columbia River make it especially convenient. This bedroom community also offers a few outdoor attractions of its own, including Chinook Landing Marine Park and Blue Lake Regional Park on the Banks of Fairview Lake.

Where to Go

The Columbia River Gorge

Just outside of Fairview, the Columbia River Gorge is home to some of the most spectacular scenery in the Pacific Northwest. Here you’ll find miles of wooded hiking trails, great vantage points, and plenty of scenic waterfalls.

Along the Clackamas River

South of Fairview, the Clackamas River is popular for fishing and whitewater rafting. There are also plenty of swimming holes along the river for cooling off during hot summer months.

Portland

While Portland isn’t exactly a place to camp, it is home to some spectacular scenery, great outdoor stores, and famous food. If you’ve had enough of camp fare and want something a bit more gourmet, you’ll be well taken care of—even the famous food cart pods in town offer food worth writing home about.

When to Go

If you’re coming to Fairview, it’s probably with the intention of visiting the Columbia Gorge, which is beautiful throughout the year. Hiking conditions are at their best in the summer when the chance of rain is at its lowest, though this is also the busiest time so be prepared for crowds and, potentially, a lack of parking. Springtime is a good alternative if you don’t mind the rain—the waterfalls are at their fullest in the pre-summer months, too.  

Hipcamp is created with ❤️ and hope for our future.
