Breitenbush Lake campground provides limited facilities, and unlimited possibilities! These 20 sites are for the independent traveler who is comfortable bringing their own water, packing out garbage, and reaping the rewards of no-fee, no-reservation sites. Just north of the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness, activities include day fishing and non-motorized boating on the lake, hiking, or scoping out the Breitenbush trailhead for the PCT (Pacific Crest Trail--a 2,665 mile journey that spans from Mexico to Canada!). To fish in the Breitenbush Lake, call Warm Springs Natural Resources at (541) 553-2001 ext. 1236 for Theresa Vanpelt. Since snow compromises many National Forest roads in the winter season, make sure to check the current conditions before you leave, or just find a Yeti to piggyback.

We camped here over the July 23rd campground and a few things to say about it:

The campground itself was nice. Large campsite that could easily fit 2-4 tents and 1 car (a few could fit a couple cars). The campground was also about 50% full and seemed far more used than was otherwise indicated. Probably due to the increased traffic, the vault toilets were devoid of paper (so bring your own) and were not the most pleasant smell. Also, I can tell you the mosquitos are still pervasive, especially close to the waters edge, throughout the summer.

The road to the campground was terrible. We drove up in an F-350 dually and while we were able to get up there, we found a few places where we had just over an inch of clearance from boulders and
