“let your curiosity take you out to play”

Just 34 miles west of Portland, you’ve got the best backyard imaginable. Campers, hikers, cyclists or equestrians can spend their days exploring and adventuring across 1,800 acres of rolling hills, forest glades, gleaming streams and wildflowers, all crisscrossed with over 25 miles of trails. Trek in deep canyons or picnic in the shade. Follow a woodland trail into the far reaches of the park; let your curiosity take you out to play. And when you’ve reminded yourself just how good it feels to stretch in the sun and watch things grow, choose a quiet campsite or a cozy cabin and relax under the stars.Stub Stewart is close enough for a perfect day trip. Enjoy a family gathering before magnificent views of the Coast Range at Hilltop Day-use Area, or embark on a journey from either of two trailheads – Hilltop or Clayhill to the north, with its horse staging area – and spend a few wide-eyed hours discovering the forest. The multi-use trails, plus 6 miles of cross-country and free-ride mountain bike trails, range from easy and forgiving to robust and challenging, all with ample opportunity for wildlife viewing and immersion in the scenery.An 18-hole disc golf course winds its way through the trees just east of Hilltop, and a 3-hole course is near the amphitheater. Buy discs at the Stub Stewart Welcome Center, where hiking poles, bike helmets, water bottles and more are for sale. The Center is home to the Discover Depot, where a wealth of information awaits on the area's flora and fauna, the park and history.

On April 18 our first time out in 2022 we camped in spot 76. It rained the whole 5 days we stayed here. Never the less the campground was very clean. The bathrooms were well kept, the showers were very nice and clean. Our spot was very spacious as the length was 45 feet deep on asphalt. It had a picnic table and a fire ring in a well-groomed gravel area about 30’ x 30’. The back of our spot was against very high trees. Our spot was on the north side of the road so when we put out our satellite unit it had lots of southern sky to find a signal from. This spot was across the road some ways away from the kids play area that was still closed due to COVID. One day we took a trip into Vernonia 11 miles away and had lunch at The Black Iron Grill. They served very good food at a reasonable price and served large portions. Vernonia also has R & S Market where we purchased some other food items we were lacking, like eggs. As this was our first time camping here, we had a very nice time. The best part was it was only 45min away from our home. Cell service was just ok.
