Campground Description

Campground Description

Team

Eightmile Campground is one of a few smaller, primitive campgrounds off of Forest Road 44 between Mount Hood and Dufur. Its most redeeming asset is its seclusion. Even in the summer it doesn't get too crowded here. Mountain biking and fly fishing are the main draw to this area, but there are also some hiking trails that can be accessed from this section of the Mount Hood National Forest. The Eightmile Loop is one such trail. Departing directly from Eightmile Campground, it follows Eightmile Creek and then loops back for a total of 6 miles.

The campground is operated on a first-come, first-served basis. It is open from May 15 through October 15.

Eightmile Campground is not to be confused with Lower Eightmile Crossing Campground. The latter is a primitive campground just upstream with three sites, and it can be reached by foot from Eightmile Campground.
