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.
