Eagle Creek Campground


Eagle Creek campground is located above Interstate 84 among tall trees. It was the first developed campground in the Forest Service system. Campsites are well-spaced creating a feeling of privacy. It is, however, located on the bluff above Interstate 84 and railroad tracks so it can be noisy.


Facilities

There are 16 campsites available, each with a paved parking apron and most are fully accessible. There is a central restroom, and faucets for drinking water are scattered throughout the campground. A full-time host is on site.

Nearby attractions

See huge sturgeon and other fish at the underwater viewing area at Bonneville dam and hatchery or take a self-guided tour of the onsite Cascade fish hatchery. Cascade Locks Museum and Sternwheeler are five minutes away to the east. The iconic Multnomah Falls and Columbia River Gorge Historic Highway are a short drive to the west. World-class kite boarding and board sailing are in Hood River, Oregon, about 20 minutes east.

Natural feaures

Located in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, Eagle Creek campground is situated in a classic Douglas fir and maple forest with osprey nesting overhead. Salmon fishing is popular on the nearby Columbia River.

Recreation

This campground is part of the Eagle Creek Recreation Area featuring the classic and popular Eagle Creek trail and access to several other hiking and road biking trails. There are outstanding day hike opportunities with views and wildflowers as well as access to the Mt. Hood National Forest and Mark O. Hatfield Wilderness with extended overnight trips.

A formal-sounding name for camper van, but just as photogenic.

Class A

Drivers should be comfortable driving bus-sized vehicles and dealing with parking limitations. Great for delivery.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
