These 27 remote and beautiful campgrounds represent the last remaining publicly managed campgrounds in Mt. Hood National Forest. Babgy Hot Springs is the only free hot spring in the area and is one of our regions' gems. Under this proposal, for-profit companies will be invited to submit bids to manage and profit from our favorite places to relax.

Comments to the Forest Service will be accepted until midnight on February 14th.
