Clark Creek Organization Camp
Willamette National Forest \ Middle Fork Ranger District
Clark Creek Organization Camp was constructed during the 1930's by the Civilian Conservation Corps in coordination with the U.S. Forest Service. Organization camps were created for the purpose of hosting group recreational activities on public lands. The Boy Scouts of America and local church groups were, historically, routine users of organization camps.
Five sleeping shelters have eight bunks each. Vault toilets, drinking water, a picnic shelter, campfire circles and an amphitheater are also provided. Campers can pitch tents in the field as well. The day-use area and sleeping shelters are separated by Clark Creek. Access is over a foot bridge. Up to 125 guests can make use of the group area during the daytime, but only 80 guests are allowed to camp overnight.
Clark Creek Organization Camp is generally open from early May through late September. Reservations may be made up to one year in advance. The nightly rate is less expensive for weekdays than for weekends. Follow the link to check rates, availability and directions here: Recreation.gov \ Clark Creek Organization Camp
