Why Camp Here
The campsites are large and perfect for a family outing or a group of scouts. Huckleberry picking is a big deal around this area. Late snow can sometimes put off the opening date until after Memorial Day, but we will always try to open by that weekend.
Good to Know
During the summer one of the best ways to travel from the Gorge to Highway 12 and Packwood is along Highway 141 and then onto FS Road 23 in the high lakes area along the west side of Mt. Adams. As you do so, about a third of the way up from the Gorge you will travel through the small but very pleasant town of Trout Lake. It is here that Highway 141 turns west to Goose Lake. Just west of Trout Lake is the campground Peterson Prairie.
We expect to have a host in the campground from about Memorial Weekend to Labor Day Weekend. Otherwise an attendant will be in the campground two to four times per day.
RV use rating is 4 out of 5
