Peninsula Campground is located on the far end of Olallie Lake on the edge of the Mount Hood National Forest. As the name suggests, Peninsula is on a large chunk of land that extends out into the lake. The camping here is somewhat primitive with no access to drinking water. An ideal location for fishermen and paddle boaters, Peninsula is home to 35 campsites with many located just feet from the lakeside. Some of the campsites here are walk in only and privacy can be an issue. Depending on the time of year Peninsula can get very cold in the evenings and because it is out on the lake the wind tends to blow fairly consistently. When here be sure to look for the Mt. Jefferson viewing dock down on the lake. There is a trail at the end of the peninsula that leads between to campsites to it and it is a great spot for photos and fishing. Don’t let the Olallie Lake area fool you, it may be hard to reach but is extremely popular and campgrounds fill up fast. However if you don’t mind roughing it in the woods if all the sites are full this is a great area with plenty of make-shift campsites to be found off the sides of the road. There is a Lake Store that sells very basic supplies including water, beer, ice and some camping supplies. Boats can be rented at Olallie lake for a very reasonable price as well.
