Some things to know before you go!
To book a visit please call 503-630-6136 between 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. seven days a week. Please call when you reach Estacada so our volunteers will know when to greet you and to get the current gate code. Phone service is limited once you pass Estacada. Fees can be found on the Accommodations page.
First time visit and just looking around? We will be happy to give you a tour of the grounds. If you decide to stay a while, you will be charged accordingly. Payments may be made by cash, check, or credit card. You will need a valid photo ID and please note that we do background checks on first time visitors to make sure our little piece of heaven stays a safe place for the entire family.
The snack bar is open only during special events, but we do have good water and two gas-fired barbecues you can use. Limited kitchen facilities (sink & microwave) are also available to all guests at Rocky's Place. A full kitchen is available to Lodge guests. Bring your own vittles.
SMR holds a potluck dinner every Saturday night and guests are welcome to join in whether you have food to share or not. On most meeting weekends (check the events page) a themed party follows.
Camping.jpg DIRECTIONS From either I-5 or I-84, Take Interstate 205 to Exit 12 (if you're northbound) or Exit 13 (if you're southbound) and proceed east. After several miles, Hwy 212 splits from Hwy 224 at a stoplight. Bear right to stay on Hwy 224. Follow Hwy 224 all the way into Estacada and out the other side. (If you haven't already done so, stop in Estacada and call to get the latest gate combination. You can also pick up groceries here if you need to. Just turn left at the only stop li
Follow the signs from Tumala Mountain Road down the mile-long gravel drive. DO NOT FOLLOW GPS DIRECTIONS ONCE THROUGH THE GATE; THEY ARE WRONG. As you enter the developed area, bear to your left and follow the outer loop around the camp. Continue around the loop to the office which is close to the playground. If we don't notice you right away, toot your horn merrily a couple of times. If you've reserved a Lodge room, it will be ready for you.
