“a little-known geographical gem”

Situated along the scenic Clackamas River, Milo McIver State Park is only 45 minutes from  Portland. This beautiful park provides a variety of outstanding recreational opportunities. Within this little-known gem, you can spend a day or a week exploring the river, forest and fields. River-lovers can challenge the sometimes wild (but always picturesque) Clackamas River with rafts, canoes or kayaks.Do you enjoy fishing?  The Estacada Lake offers a boat ramp and an ADA fishing dock, and the Clackamas River has Steelhead and Chinook runs.  The Clackamas Fish Hatchery is located at McIver Park, and self-guided tours of the hatchery guide visitors through the life-cycle of Chinook salmon and Steelhead. Prefer to stay dry? You can hike, or ride your horse. Still too sweaty for you? Spend a lazy afternoon playing the year-round, 27-hole disc golf course. Discs are available at the park office to rent or buy. If you're planning a special gathering, reservable picnic sites with a shelter are available. If you just need to get away for a while, individual and group campsites are waiting for you. When staying at McIver during the summer, we have family-oriented interpretive programs -- from guided hikes to nature crafts. An annual Civil War re-enactment occurs in September. More than 300 actors participate.

You could easily spend a whole day birding this large park by car, making short hikes at a range of elevations, from meadows on mid-level benches to steep forested slopes. For a longer visit, use the campground as your base and explore further on the trails. Watch for waterfowl and American Dipper along the river, and Osprey and Bald Eagle overhead. Red-breasted Sapsucker and four species of woodpecker are resident. In spring and summer, look for Willow and Pacific-slope Flycatchers, Cassin's and Hutton's Vireos, Wilson's Warbler, and Western Tanager. Individual and group campsites are available. Daily visitor fees apply. From I-205, take Exit 12A to merge onto Carver Rd/OR 212/OR 224 toward Clackamas/Estacada. After 3.6 mi, turn R at Market Rd/OR 224. After 1 mi, turn R at Market Rd. Turn L at S Clackamas River Dr/Market Rd and continue on S Springwater Rd to the park entrance on the L.

We stayed in a tent and other than the heat, it was a lot of fun for our 2 year olds first camping trip. For swimming, avoid the boat launch past the dam. We never got to check out other swimming holes. They have shower stalls (no doors), an equestrian area nearby and a bat viewing hike nearby. Sites are somewhat private and have plenty of trees. All sites have water and power
