Wyeth Campground

Campground Description:  Wyeth Campground is owned and operated by the US Forest Service.  Like most US Forest Service campgrounds, RV camping hookups are not typically available.  Water is available at centralized locations and the Wyeth Campground does offer flush toilets.  Although a small campground with only 14 tent camping or RV camping sites, Wyeth Campground is well worth the stop.  It is rarely filled and reservations are not available so it is a preferred stop when the nearby Oregon State campgrounds are full.  Most people come to Wyeth Campground for the abundance of hiking trails both at the park and within a short drive.  Wyeth Campground also serves as a trail head for the Wyeth Trail #411 and the Gorge Trail #400.  Hike on the nearby Wyeth trail, allowing an easy climb up to the scenic Gorton Creek Falls.  Open April 1 to the first weekend in October.

Number of Sites:  14 single for RV camping or tent camping, 3 small group camping sites

Electricity:  No

Water:  At central locations

Sewer:  No

Waste Water Dump Station:  No

Directions:  Interstate 84 Westbound or Eastbound - Drive to exit 51 and exit the Interstate.  At the bottom of the interchange, turn away from the Columbia River (turn South) and follow the roadway to Wyeth Road (less than 100 yards).  Turn right (West) onto Wyeth Road and follow for 250 yards to the entrance to Wyeth Campground.  The entrance to the campground is on the left (South) side of Wyeth Road.

Fishing:  Nearby on the Columbia River.  The Columbia River is best fished from a boat when fishing for Salmon, Steelhead, Sturgeon and Walleye.  Bank fishing can be very good for bass.

Astronomy Opportunities:  Although very dark, there are too many trees at Wyeth Campground for astronomy 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.

Please use the email link above to notify the editors of the Free Guide To Northwest Camping of any errors or omissions.  New campgrounds are added weekly.
