Camping Ideas around PDX

Hello,

I've got the itch to go camping. Just for the night or maybe two. I know it's still pretty early in the season and I don't want to hit snow. I was wondering if any of you all have any good suggestions for camping spots? I'd prefer non-campground wilderness spots, but I'll take any suggestions.

Thanks,
Chris

there's a few undeveloped sites along Panther Creek in the GPNF about 10 miles north of Carson, WA

I would head out 224 and camp along there or head up into the hills a bit from 224 if you want more isolation. I went up to timothy lake just a week ago and it was like a sunny spring day.

I was up there last Sat. High Rock & Hideaway Lake are accessible . But there's snow in the forecast for late in the week.

x2
TONS of places up there to explore and camp.
Huxley Lake is a great little know spot off the 4610 a ways.
Not much of a lake but its a great ride in, and a nice spot to stay the night.
Squaw Mt lookout, Squaw lakes and High Rocks are great as well.

Or....
You could do as I did over the weekend and hit the coast.
Park and hike out to your own little wonderland

Spruce Run CG on the Nehalem is a great spot, close to fishing, dirt road riding, etc...should be pretty empty this time of year.
