Wy'East Camp

Wy'East Camp used to be one of the largest camping areas on the Eagle Creek Trail. First, there are campsites on a bench below the trail. The main Wy'East Camp is above and below the trail. The large campsites along the trail itself have been decommissioned since the 2017 Eagle Creek Fire and are marked with "Site Restoration" signs. A trail leads up to a bench where there are a couple of sites, and there are other sites below the trail. No campfires are allowed here despite the presence of fire rings.

Wy'East Camp sits right off Eagle Creek with good water access. Into midsummer, check out nearby Wy'East Creek. If you follow your eyes upstream about 100 yards you should see 157-foot Wy'East Falls—a tall, pretty, seasonal ribbon-like waterfall.

Wy'East, pronounced "why east", was the term Native Americans gave to Mount Hood.

A short distance beyond Wy'East Camp is the entrance to the Mark O. Hatfield Wilderness.
