We stayed a week here. Very large campground, but spread out through the woods so doesn't look large. Very clean with lots of dumpsters spread around the park. Laundry accepts credit cards. Great water pressure. Limited cable TV, but adequate with Discovery, History, MTV, HGTV, and all the networks. Wifi is terrible and we were close to the lodge. ATT cell phones have a good signal. Store and café on site. Sandy OR is about 20 easy minutes away (2 lanes each direction). - akgourmet

This is a nice Encore park not far from Mt. Hood. We had a large site with lots of shade, so we used their cable instead of our Dish TV. The cable worked well but was missing some of our favorite channels. Our Verizon MiFi worked okay during the times when other people in the park were not trying to access the Internet, too. AT&T cell phones had no issues while we were here. We were disappointed in the lack of activities for adults. Usually, there are things like breakfasts or ice cream socials in Encore/Thousand Trails parks, but we had none of those activities here. We thought that might be because they are renovating the clubhouse, so look forward to maybe seeing more for adults on our next visit. - Bobbi1948

This is one of the most beautiful campgrounds we've ever stayed in, and we've done a lot of camping. There's only one big problem, road noise from the highway which runs along the cliff above the campground. Although you can't see the cars or trucks, you can hear them, all day and all night. Our campsite was right on the creek running through the campground, and we could still hear the trucks' engine brakes, despite the splashing water in the creek. Other than that, it's great, the sites are widely spaced, the trees are large, there's lots of shade and the whole thing is well-managed by a representative of Thousand Trails. The bathrooms are "vaults," but they are clean. Unfortunately, almost all of the forest service campgrounds near Mt. Hood are right near the highway, next time, we would probably stay in a more out-of-the-way place and "commute" to Mt. Hood. - Prof Dan

Be aware this is a USFS campground, thus there are few if any accommodations beyond a site. We were the only motorhome we saw in the entire campground. The vast majority of the sites are not very level, this campground really is designed for tent campers and those with a small RV like a pop up. Most of the camp sites in the A, B & C loops are located on the side of the hill. D and F loops are a bit more flat and would probably accommodate an RV better. The campground is a typical, very busy weekend USFS campground. The "resort" is a group of cabins and boating area. The store is very overpriced, wood ran $8/bundle when we were there. This is a very crowded lake. Day user numbers are huge, if you don't claim a spot early you're dealing with the crowds in the few open areas. There is not beach area, the lodge has a clearing for those renting boats but the rest of the access to the lake is between the trees. You can walk around the lake, but you can not bike. If you own a Subaru and a tent, this is your type of campground. But for RVs this isn't a great place. Prices are expensive considering there are no amenities and the lake is very crowded. - Y-Guy

A nice high-elevation campground that is "away from it all" and a little too popular. This is for smaller trailers only; officially 16 feet or shorter but you can probably squeeze in a 20. Gravel road in is not bad. Fishing, swimming, hiking. Shellrock Lake, in a Wilderness area, is about a 2-mile hike from the campground. - Old Mountain Man
