Government Camp is the outdoor mecca of the Northwest.  If you love the outdoors, welcome home.


It can’t all be done in one day.  Government Camp has lots of options for a night in.


Carb up before hitting the slopes or relax in front of a fireplace with your favorite distraction.


Whether you need new gear or just want to bring something special back home, we have what you need.  

Located on the south slope on Mt. Hood, Government Camp is a picturesque alpine village. At an elevation of 4,000 feet and with an average snowfall close to 300 inches, it is the base camp for a wide range of outdoor activities and adventures.
Rediscover Government Camp with our new streetscape, general store and the Mt Hood Cultural Center and Museum.
