- Government Camp, Oregon
Government Camp is an unincorporated community located in Clackamas County,
Oregon, United States, south of Mount Hoodand north of Tom, Dick and Harry Mountain. It is a gateway to several ski resorts, the most popular being Timberline Lodgeand Mount Hood Skibowl. Also, Government Camp has its own, smaller ski resort, Summit Ski Area. And, somewhat farther (about 25 minutes on US 26), there is another very popular resort: Mount Hood Meadows.
The community is located within the
Mount Hood Corridoron U.S. Route 26 (aka the Mount Hood Scenic Byway), near its intersection with Oregon Route 35and the Barlow Pass summit of the Cascade Range.
Government Camp was given its name by settlers traveling the
Barlow Road, who discovered several wagons abandoned there by the Regiment of Mounted Riflemen.
Over the last decade, Government Camp went through a massive revitalization effort, thanks to a Clackamas County
urban renewaldistrict. With that district expiring in 2007, the community has been looking at ways to maintain current services. At a town hall meeting on November 17, 2006, citizens voted not to form a village 41-58. Many residents voted against the proposal in order to seek incorporation [http://www.sandypost.com/news/story.php?story_id=116423851212380100] . The community is still exploring its options.
