Overview

Oak Fork Campground is located on the shores of Timothy Lake in the shadow of Oregon’s Mt. Hood. The surrounding forest setting offers spectacular views, miles of trails for exploration and abundant fishing.

Recreation

Proximity to Timothy Lake allows campers to enjoy a variety of water-related recreation activities, including boating and sailing, as well as swimming, windsurfing and fishing. Anglers can expect a catch of kokanee salmon and a variety of trout . A range of trails are located in the area. The Timothy Lake Trail is popular for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. The 12 miles of relatively level terrain loops trekkers around the lake, providing scenic views of the area. It connects to the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail, a lengthy hike that extends across three states, from the borders of Canada and Mexico. Portions of that trail also lead southwest to Clackamas Lake Campground. The Clackamas Lake Ranger Station Historic District is less than 2 miles from the campground. It was built to house forest service workers in the early 1900s. The rustic architecture and historic nature of the buildings and the surrounding area draws thousands of tourists each year.

The campground offers 36 single-family campsites, six cabins, and eight hike-in sites with some of these as accessible sites. Each site is equipped with a picnic table and fire grill. Accessible vault toilets and drinking water are provided. An on-site host is available for questions regarding the campground and surrounding area.

Sleeping cabins are furnished with a twin over twin bunk, a twin over full bunk, a table and two chairs. Please bring your own bedding. Cooking and smoking in cabins is prohibited and pets are not allowed at the cabin sites. Cabins are nonelectric.
