Cabins in Government Camp

Government Camp is a popular skiing destination in Oregon, located at the 4,000-foot level of the south slopes of Mt Hood. Although the town remains true to its roots, new developments have recently revitalized the area. Today, if you head downtown you will find quaint Bavarian-style, pedestrian style streets, filled with small shops, a brewery, ski shops and many vacation rentals.

One of the best ski resorts is at Mount Hood Skibowl, where in the summer, the slopes are transformed into an alpine slide, with many other activities including a Maliby car race track and a zip line. Another popular ski resort is the Summit Ski Area, the oldest ski area in the Pacific Northwest. For more outdoor activities, take a wonder through Hood National Forest or mountain bike around nearby beautiful Collins Lake.

Getting a Government Camp cabin rental means you can explore the area with ease, making for a perfect vacation. If skiing is your thing, book a ski lodge with incredible mountain views, or alternatively a cozy cabin in woods that is pet-friendly and has a hot tub can be the ideal place to destress with all your group. For a little luxury, Timberline Lodge offers high-quality lodges and luxury condominiums, giving you the perfect Mt Hood vacation.
