Gone Creek Campground Description

Gone Creek is a popular campground nestled next to Timothy Lake near Mount Hood. The campground consists of two large loops with some sites located right on the lake waterfront and the rest of the sites within easy walking distance to water access. Campsites vary but most of them are excellent with the ones on the waterfront in very high demand. This campground usually fills up ahead of time and walk up sites are almost always full. Overall this is a great campground but may not be ideal for large groups as noise tends to travel next to the lake.

Timothy Lake has a lake-wide speed limit of 5mph so this is not a “speed boat” location.  The lake is great, however, for fishing, paddle boats, and swimming.  The beach near Gone Creek campground is great and can get very busy on the warmer days as the water is not nearly as cold as other high elevation lakes.
