Camping in a major metro area? Most people come to Portland to explore Oregon's largest metropolitan area, not to experience the great outdoors. But wait! Portland is an environmentally aware city and every time someone steps outdoors he is reminded of the natural beauty of the Portland area. Portland offers an abundance of museums, art galleries, gardens, arboretums, a science center and a very popular zoo.
Camping in a campground in or near Portland gives plenty of opportunity to explore this wonderful area. Portland offers more fine restaurants than gasoline stations. You will find dozens of micro-breweries, many associated with unique restaurants. Portland is the hot bed of west coast blues music and cutting edge blues bands can be heard any evening of the week at dozens and dozens of venues.
Portland is also a shopper's Mecca with a large number of outlet malls and major shopping centers.
As you examine the camping choices in the Portland area, consider how you will be camping. If you are a tent camper remember than most Portland commercial RV parks do not allow tent camping.

The Free Guide To Northwest Camping is a free guide to both privately owned and publicly owned (state, county and federal government) campgrounds. The editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not specifically endorse any of the campgrounds listed in this site. Not every available campground is covered in this free camping guide. Many of the privately owned and operated campgrounds do allow RV camping but not tent camping. If in doubt, call the campground first.
The authors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping do not accept payment from any agency or private campground owners. In this way we ensure that every description in this free guide is unbiased. Covered are campgrounds owned and operated by state and federal agencies, private RV campgrounds, RV parks, family campgrounds, and camping sites for both tent camping and all types of RV camping. While free campgrounds are listed and described, pay per night campgrounds far outnumber the free sites.
