Campground Description

Campground Description

Team

Located on a small peninsula on the northwest shore of Timothy Lake and just off of the Timothy Lake Loop Trail, this walk-in campground consists of four primitive campsites 1 mile from the trailhead and parking lot. There were several unofficial sites near the campground that were also popular for campers, but these have been closed. Hikers will find a few sites along the trail between Meditation Point and the parking lot, as well.

If you’d prefer not to hike into your campsite but are still interested in a quiet and serene outdoor experience, explore the lake’s North Arm Campground or the nearby Little Crater Lake and Clackamas Lake Campgrounds.  If you don’t mind a few neighbors, look at the south shore’s more established campgrounds: Pine Point CampgroundHoodview Campground, Gone Creek Campground and Oak Fork Campground.
