If you haven’t, you’ll want to go. On the Metolius Arm of Lake Billy Chinook, this campground offers easy access to one of the area’s most popular lakes. You can enjoy fishing and comfortable camping with the convenience of a boat ramp, docks and drinking water while surrounded by the beauty of rugged canyons and a diverse evergreen forest. Motorized boats are allowed on the reservoir, making it easy to cool off with water sports or spend the day fishing for bass, trout, kokanee salmon, whitefish, and the occasional sucker, minnow or dace.
The Clackamas River corridor is a mecca for outdoor recreation just outside of Portland. Along its banks you can find plenty of paddling, hiking, bicycling and camping. And from our river access sites, you can launch your watercraft for up to 13 miles of class II-IV whitewater rapids, take in the canyon’s grand views or just enjoy the mountain-fed waters of the Wild and Scenic Upper Clackamas.
