Parks & Campgrounds

Find your new favorite spot to spend a day or a weekend at one of PGE’s many parks and campgrounds.

We love the outdoors as much as you do

Oregon is a dream location for the outdoor enthusiast, and a great way to explore the beauty of the Northwest is at one of PGE's parks or campgrounds. From beautiful views to well-maintained trails, family-friendly programs to accessible features, PGE parks have something for everyone, whether it’s your first time visiting or your 50th.

If you’ve been here, you know.

Perry South

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.

Clackamas River Access Sites (currently closed)

A wild and scenic river

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.

NOTE: All sites in this area are currently closed due to wildfire recovery.
