Driving Directions

From I-205, take Exit 12A for Highways 212 and 224E, Clackamas and Estacada.

After exiting, drive 3.2 miles and make a right on Highway 224E for Carver and Estacada.

Go 15.4 miles through Estacada and, at the junction with Highway 211S for Molalla and Woodburn, keep straight on Highway 212 for North Fork Lake.

Continue on Highway 224 for 14.9 miles before turning right onto Fish Creek Road.

Drive 0.3 miles up Fish Creek Road and pull into the large parking area on the right.
