Camping near Hood River guide


Nestled into a Bend of the majestic Columbia River Gorge, Hood River is a camping paradise. Pitch your tent overlooking the river, or enjoy the peace of a national forest RV park. Not one, but two volcanoes sit nearby, creating truly unique campsites. Oregon’s mild climate creates a long camping season—and you can always head to Mt. Hood for year-round snow.

Experience Hood River’s booming hiking and windsurfing scene with a campsite on the Columbia Gorge. A few miles from town, campgrounds like Wyeth and Tucker Park allow easy access to the gorge trails. The waterfront campground at Memaloose State Park offers full hookups and a dump station for RVs. Toward Portland, Marine Park offers a boat launch and year-round camping.

For mountain adventures, check out the 71 campgrounds in the Mt. Hood National Forest. With 1,000 miles of trails, the area is popular for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. You can also fish, paddle, and swim in 150 lakes and 14 rivers. In the winter, book a camping cabin and get out into the snow that blankets Mount Hood.

The adventure’s not over yet—to the north, the Gifford Pinchot National Forest has more than 30 campgrounds. Paddle Yale Lake, summit Mt. Adams, or go OHV camping at North Fork. Don’t miss Mount St. Helens, where you can still see the aftermath of the 1980 eruption.
