Alder Flat Campground
Alder Flat is a hike in only campground on the Clackamas river near Ripplebrook. It offers 6 sites set in an old growth forest along the river. Sites offer picnic tables and fire pits but no other services. The fire pits and picnic tables may be in disrepair. There is no toilet at the campground. The nearest bathrooms are at the Ripplebrook ranger station near the trailhead. Alder Flat is open all year. It will snow at 1300 feet of elevation at times during the winter, but typically the highway will be clear.
The trail is just short of a mile and drops about 200 feet elevation. It is used frequently on the weekends, but not typically by campers. The trail is in good condition and is generally an easy hike. You should not have a problem finding a site here at any time.
Fishing on the Clackamas can be a real treat and river around Alder Flat offers some good options. The river is less accessible in this stretch and angling pressure is light. The upper Clackamas is a clear stream, with rainbow, and cutthroat available. The Clackamas tends to produce smaller fish than you would expect for a river of its size, but the smaller fish are numerous and eager to feed.
