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.

LMCH Emergency Response

to the Covid-19 (Corona Virus) Outbreak

We find ourselves in unprecedented times. The Board and Camp Management team have been faced with some difficult decisions. Our main objective is keeping both our staff and Member community safe.  In doing so, we have examined responses from our federal, state, and local governments.  We have also reached out to union representatives.


Our guiding principles for our decisions are:

1.    Prioritizing the health and wellbeing of our entire LMCH community including current, members, vendors, and staff.

2.    Sustaining our commitment to members and to keeping LMCH open during this challenging time. 

3.    Fulfilling our role in helping stop the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.


The following actions are being taken by the Board and camp management to address the current coronavirus outbreak and should all be considered to be ‘until further notice’:


Office:   Office will be staffed to answer phone and email requests, please limit exposure risks by conducting camp business by phone or email.   If you have to conduct business in person, please make arrangements beforehand.


Sales:   The LMCH sales staff will not be conducting sales tours.  Sales staff will also follow office procedures and respond by email or telephone.  Calls, emails, or texts will be handled as efficiently as possible to help with any member questions or concerns.
