Who We Are
Lake Merwin Campers Hideaway is a family friendly private, gated membership camping organization that offers an on-site restaurant and spa, indoor pool, outdoor movie theater, putt-putt golf, a chapel and a stunning view of Lake Merwin. Unfortunately, we do not offer access to the general public. If you are interested in learning more, please call our Sales department at 360-247-5940.

We are located approximately one hour from Portland, Oregon. Lake Merwin Campers Hideaway offers the family a full range of leisure activities.
You'll find hiking, swimming, boating, fishing and geocaching. We have all kinds of wildlife on-site, sometimes within steps of your own secluded campsite. 

Where else will you find a permanent weekend retreat or vacation spot that offers such amenities, with a variety of water sports, indoor and outdoor recreation facilities, all within minutes of Portland and Vancouver and at a fraction of the cost of a vacation home. 

Be sure to visit our sales page for more information on our camp and how to schedule a tour.

Special Announcements


The Tree Committee and B&G Meetings for this weekend
will be rescheduled due to the inclement weather conditions

February 23  8:30am

We currently have 14-18 inches of snow depending on location in camp. 
Maintenance has plowed the main road but it is still packed with snow and ice.
Columbia Tie Rd. has been plowed but the upper half is hard packed snow and ice.
4WD is required and carrying traction devices strongly advised. 
We have already had 4WD vehicles go off the road and get stuck in dangerous situations.

Please , watch out for our staff when driving in this inclement weather. as it warms during the day, things get very slippery,
then at night freezes back up again. Safety is the top priority. Just another reminder,
Chains are strongly advised if you must come to camp.

We recieved a couple of inches more overnight and the forecast calls for
more snow through Wednesday of next week,
possibly another 10 inches or more.

We know that the snow is beautiful and you want to come see and play in it,
but this snow should be here for a while.
For your safety, we advise waiting until the roads clear some.
We will keep you posted on current conditions.

Please plan accordingly if you must come to camp.
LMCH can NOT tow you if you get stuck and have had tow companies decline to come up here.






Logging crews have begun logging on Block 17.
The logging is expected to take a couple of weeks.
During this time you may experience delays and alternate routes
may be needed depending on where the crews are at any given time.

We ask that members use caution and be aware of your surroundings,
our utmost concern is the safety of our membership as well as the crews working.
We will do all we can to keep everyone updated with the progress.
