The vibe at Skull Hollow Campground
Drop some Skull Hollow Campground knowledge on us.
Situated 8 miles from Smith Rock State park the semi-primitive campground has 28 sites equipped with a picnic table and fire ring. There is no running water and only 2 vaulted outhouses. This campground has little to no view of anything and is almost full on the weekends in the summer when the bivy at Smith Rock is at full capacity. Don't make the same mistake we did by showing up late and disperse camping right outside the campground. There is a closure order in place making disperse camping in the area illegal. You'll wake up at 4 in the morning to a very angry camp host and a field full of cows. Cute cows nonetheless.
Skull Hollow is a good basecamp for Smith Rock climbers and other adventurers. The sites are quite large, especially towards the end of the loop. Expect a terrain of juniper and sagebrush, a firepit, picnic table and great star gazing! There is no running water so be sure to pack in your own.
