Description

Will you go fishing or whitewater rafting in the wild Clackamas River, just steps away from the Carter Bridge Campground? On the plentiful Clackamas River, you’ll find river and stream fishing for steelhead, chinook, and coho salmon, in addition to 12.5 miles of Class III-IV whitewater rafting. Ready to visit? The reservation window for Carter Bridge Campground is May-September, and at $16/night, reservations must be made at least four days in advance. Check these off of your list before you leave: bring your own water, and peep the current conditions for off-season accessibility! Ba-da-bing, ba-da-boom.

This site is filled with beautiful trees on the wild Clackamas river. There is river access. The only downside is the proximity to the highway - but get close enough to the river and it drowns out the sound of the cars during the day. Not a noisy highway at night. The proximity to Portland makes it a wonderful site for a quick get away. The vault toilet may have been the cleanest of its type I've ever seen. Additional ammenity: Ranger Scott. I made a rookie mistake in trying to secure a first come, first served site, and my site was taken when I arrived. He was able to creatively help me out by letting me stay in the day use area, which was bonus. He also had tons of tips and stories about camping, so he was a great part of my experience.
