This 280-acre secluded, forested site is a favorite among youth organizations and other groups. It's easy to get back to nature at this beautiful park, with 24 Adirondacks (3-sided camp shelters), numerous tent sites, and a rustic day lodge complete with cooking facilities to accommodate groups of up to 250 people. Take a big step up from a tent and check out our rustic two-room cabins. Bring your horse, ride the trails and camp in a horse corral tent site. Camp Wilkerson is located 16 miles northwest of Scappoose, Oregon.
The Crown Z Trail is a former logging trail through rural areas of Columbia County that connects to the Banks-Vernonia State Trail in Vernonia. The trail starts in Scappoose on the Multnomah Channel at Chapman Landing and transverses through the forested areas of Columbia County to Vernonia Lake. The Crown Z Trail is a partially paved, partially gravel linear trail that is perfect for any season of recreational fun. Walking, hiking, horseback riding, or biking are all options at various points in the trek. Multiple trailheads are located along this scenic 23- mile trail, from the Chapman Landing Trailhead in Scappoose to the Holce Street Trailhead in Vernonia. Certain trailheads offer parking and picnic areas, public restrooms and bicycle repair stations for visitors to use at their leisure.
