Stub Stewart State Park, Oregon - campgrounds

This is the newest of Oregon’swonderful state parks, and definitely has some great things going for it.  Today we’ll write about the campgrounds, tomorrow, the rest of the park.

Stub Stewart has two campgrounds for tenters or RV’ers ~ 78 full hook-up sites (50 ap, 50 ft sites), all ADA compliant with picnic tables and fire rings.  There 78 sites are separated into two areas: Dairy Creek Camp West has 43 sites and is a bit more treed, and Dairy Creek Camp East has 35 sites and is much more open (you can practically see every site from any site). Each camping area has flush toilets and free hot showers (heated via solar panels).

Along with the two tent/RV campgrounds, there is Brooke Creek Hike-in Camp (for those backpacking/biking the Banks-Vernonia Trail).  There are 23 primitive sites with picnic tables, two community areas with fire rings, and vault toilets.  It’s about ¼ mile walk to the Dairy Creek Camps (mentioned above) for flush toilets and free hot showers.

Finally, there is the Hares Canyon Horse Camp with 14 full hook-up sites with 4-stall horse corrals. As with the Dairy Creek Camps, each site has 50-amps, a picnic table and fire ring. There are flush toilets and free hot showers, as well as a manure bin (for the horses),

Overall the camping areas are maintained very well – clean and well-kept.

We have always been positively impressed by Oregon's State Parks, and would like to spend more time there. Have you even been to Champoeg State Park? Or have we already asked you about that one?

Oh yes, we've been to Champoeg and agree - it's a lovely park. We actually planned to be there this week, but it was full over the weekend, so we ended up here. :-)
