Campground Details

Open: Seasonal
Number of Sites: 18

At Three Creek Lake, this site has a nice beach and offers opportunities for fishing, hiking, and water activities. Driftwood is the first campground that you come to on Three Creeks Lake. All of the sites are on the lake, which is serene and mostly quiet. There is a primitive boat ramp on the east shore for canoers.

Driftwood is the first campground that you come to on Three Creeks Lake. All of the sites are on the lake. Some have limited parking along the road and do not make good RV sites. If you have a large RV, the next campground on the other side of the lake might be better for you. Both offer the same advantages. Driftwood is at the head of the Tam McArthur trail which heads into the Sisters. A short, reasonably easy hike will lead you up to some great views of Broken Top and Faith, Hope and Charity (The Sisters). The lake is quiet. No motors, please. And the whole area is serene. There is a small store open during the summer, but fishermen might try to catch their dinners. Rainbow Trout are said to be plentiful. This area is very snow pack dependent for its opening dates and opening by Memorial Weekend is very rare. The 12 sites are tent only.

Fees: Per night, per site fee: $14/first vehicle; $7/each additional vehicle. (2011)

Usage: Light

Water: None

Restrooms: Vault Toilet

Restrictions No motors are permitted on this lake. RVs not recommended due to limited parking spur sizes.

Directions: From Sisters, travel about 16 miles south on Forest Road 16.
