Campground Description

Campground Description

Team

Lost Creek Campground is a humble, 14-site campground at the base of Mount Hood's western slope.  Only a few miles from McNeil Campground, Lost Creek Campground is nestled beneath a tall coniferous forest, so the campsites receive less sun than those at McNeil.  The campground compensates for the lack of sun by providing improved facilities and outdoor amenities, including two rentable yurts, ADA accessible sites, barbeque grills, a fishing platform, well-maintained vault toilets, and a short, 0.5 mile interpretive trail.

While camping at Lost Creek, don't miss the hikes to Ramona Falls, Zig Zag Mountain or Burnt Lake.

Note: The campground is closed October 1 through May 25.
