Browns Camp OHV Area

Saturday, April 19, 2014
Alt Names Brown's Camp, Rogers Camp, Horse Camp, University Falls, Forest Grove, Tillamook State Forest, Scoggins Creek Road, Beaver Dam Road, Lyda Camp, Firebreak Five, Stagecoach Horsecamp
Last Known Status Open
DESCRIPTION

This is the eastern most OHV campground in the Tillamook State Forest and is the recommended staging area for novice and amateur OHV riders.

The area provides many types of fun trails, secluded campsites right on the banks of the creek and plenty of shade. The creek that flows through the campground is shallow and sometimes a little muddy/cloudy, and although the sharp rocks don't make it very suitable for swimming, it's deep enough do a little wading to cool off. (There is a popular swimming area down the road at the entrance to Diamond Mill OHV Area)

Most of the trails here are looped, and are marked and rated for difficulty, but bring a GPS/Radio unit anyway. There are a number of runs that are twisty and narrow, and most would also be plenty wide enough for ATVs. The trails also seemed split when necessary to offer an easy way around the deep rutted or technical spots. Our only complaint might be that most of the turns are not well banked, so the trails didn't have a very good flow for faster riding, but that may have changed since we last visited and overall it was still very fun. Browns Camp is a great choice if you like easy woods riding. Call (503) 359-7463 for trail conditions and closure info.

During the summer months this is an active quarry.  It appears as though it's used as a shooting range in the off season.
