Without doubt Three Creek Lake's most coveted campground, Driftwood Campground wraps around the lake's northwestern shore and features 18 large and widely distributed first-come, first-served campsites. From your site you'll be able to sit back, open up a refreshing beverage, and just take in the view of one of Central Oregon's most serene and picturesque lakes. While you're visiting, enjoy trolling for the lake's stocked brown and rainbow trout, venture to the lake's south shore beach, stroll a mile (one-way) to Little Three Creek Lake, hike to the top of Tam McArthur Rim (5.2 miles total, 1,200 feet elevation gain), or make the journey to Park Meadow (12 miles total, 800 feet elevation gain).

If Driftwood Campground is full, Three Creek Lake Campground and Three Creek Meadow Campground each have an additional 11 campsites.

Note: Facilities are typically open from late June through the end of September, snowpack and weather permitting. Call Hoodoo Recreation Services for specific dates at 541.338.7869. Be sure to bring plenty of provisions as the campground has no amenities beyond vault toilets, and the adjacent Three Creek Lake Resort (541.873.2961) has extremely limited supplies.
