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.
