White River Station Campground, located along the banks of the White River, is a secluded and tranquil place to camp just south of Mount Hood. The small campground has five tent with picnic tables that are accessible by car and one walk-in site. The sound of the White River is a constant at the campground, and a few of the sites provide direct views to the river; however, there is no view of Mount Hood from the campground. The campground opens in May and closes in September, but it is still accessible in the off-season when the vault toilet is closed and all waste must be packed out. Getting to the campground requires a few miles of driving along a well-maintained gravel road.
