L.L. Stub Stewart State Park is one of Oregon's newest and most diverse parks. With over 25 miles of hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding trails plus an 18-hole disc golf course, it's become one of Portland's favorite weekend getaways.​ 

Though there are rustic and luxury cabins and yurts available to reserve year round, there is hardly anything that incites a weekend of adventure like waking up in a cozy tent. And considering the wealth of amenities available for all campers, staying at Both Dairy Creek Camp West and East hardly feels like roughing it. An amphitheater and a covered picnic area sit near the entrance, fire pits dot the campground, and firewood is almost always available for purchase. Though it's less-than ideal for those seeking backwoods solitude, it's a perfect campground for RVs, sociable campers, and families. Don't leave your pup at home—there's a fenced off-leash dog area near the site. 

Dairy Creek Camp East has 35 full-hookup sites, flush toilets, and a playground, and is open from March 1 through October 31 annually. Alternatively, Dairy Creek Camp West has over 40 full-hookup sites, 12 walk-in tent sites, flush toilets, hot showers, and ice for sale in the evenings. It's open year round, so if you're looking for a woodsy getaway arises in the middle of a soggy winter, they've got you covered.

If you're planning to gather with a large group or are considering hosting an event, The Meeting Hall at Dairy Creek Camp West can be reserved by calling 800.452.5687.
