Clear lake offers 28 large Campsites with lots of shade. The campground is walking distance to the lake. This campground is only a 1.5 hour drive from Portland and is open from May-October.

Located just 1.5 Hours from Portland and on the east side of clear lake, this campground offers multiple water activities such as Kayaking, SUP, Fishing, and Swimming. What's great about this campground is that the sites are large and are shaded by the old growth trees which makes it feel more secluded. You can reserve your campsites here.

Because of its location you can easily check out Mirror Lake, Trillium Lake, and Ramona Falls. What Clear Lake lacks in the views it makes up for with large campsites with room to breath while having the basic amenities needed for comfortable camping. You can also take a 4-mile hike around the lake if you're looking to stay close.

Overall rating: 

If you want a more rustic adventure you can take the left just before the campground exit and camp for free on the other side of the lake! You can camp right along the beach or in the woods. Awesome spot and a lot more secluded! Note: the road is very rough. I've seen low clearance vehicles do it but it's a slow, careful drive.
