The three yurts of Link Creek Campground are available year round for rustic accommodations during your winter adventure. With reservations available up to seven months (and at least four days) in advance, you'll have plenty of time to plan your activities around your stay here. With its proximity to many other nearby snow-related adventures such as Santiam Pass Sno-Park and Big Lake Snowshoe, the possibilities are numerous. The campground is a short drive around Suttle Lake via plowed roads, and the roads within the campground are plowed by the camp hosts, allowing access to nearby places.

In each yurt there is a bunk bed with a full size mattress on the bottom, a futon that can be converted into a full size bed, a table with two chairs, and a coffee table. A wood stove as the only source of heat, and wood is available for purchase from the camp hosts for $5 per bundle. The wood stove will require frequent stoking to keep the yurt heated. As the yurt heats up, avalanches can tumble off of the roof, which can be quite loud at night! Also, while the description on the reservation website indicates that pets are not allowed within the yurts, they are in fact allowed for an additional $20 fee. Be sure to bring all potable water with you because there is no running water within the campground in the winter months. Vault toilets are available.

This area seemed to be just barely spared by the 2003 B&B Complex Fire, which burned almost 91,000 acres. Evidence of this fire is visible just to the south of Suttle Lake Loop Road. This campground is populated by healthy mixed conifers. There is access to the lakeshore within the campground. These cozy, rustic yurts make the perfect winter overnight adventure.
