Located one hour five minutes of Paisley, Oregon, Happy Camp is a developed campground ideally located along peaceful Dairy Creek. The stream flows through the middle of the campground, offering fishing opportunities for rainbow trout.
At 5289 feet in elevation, this alpine campground features nine camping sites. All campsites include picnic tables and fire rings, but no garbage receptacles. *Remember to “pack it in, pack it out.”
There are three vault toilets, and two water spigots. Fresh water is also available at Clear Springs Forest Camp, about 1.5 miles to the west on Forest Service Road 047.
Besides fishing, hiking on the nearby trails, and relaxing at Happy Camp, you can toss horseshoes (bring your own) into the horseshoe pits or picnic under the historic shelters. The picnic shelters were built in the 1930’s by Civilian Conservation Corps.
