Barton Park Campground is a large campground on the tree covered banks of the Clackamas River in the Portland area. Getting to Barton Park Campground requires some navigation feats to following winding roads and find the campground, but the scenic location on the Clackamas River makes finding the campground worth the trouble. This spot on the river is popular for steelhead and salmon fishing.

There are 102 campsites in the Barton Park Campground for tent and RV camping. Some of the campsites are RV friendly, with partial hookups and pull-through spaces. Many of the campsites are shaded under a pine tree canopy. All of the campsites include a picnic table, fire ring, and access drinking water, showers, and flush toilets. There are also a number of non-traditional camping activities available with a playground, volleyball court, and horseshoe pits located within the campground. Campers must arrive by 10pm, as the park’s gates are locked from 10pm-6am.

Fees vary by campsite size, type, and location. Also beware that they charge for additional tents beyond the first 2 tents per campsite.
