Hart-tish Boat Ramp and Campground
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

Hart-Tish is a well developed and popular recreation area with an extensive day use area, a boat ramp and a small campground. The camping area has three walk-in tent sites and a parking area for self-contained RVs.
Activities and points of interest include; swimming, hiking, windsurfing, boating, picnicking and fishing (there is a fish cleaning station on-site). Hart-Tish park is one of the few Forest Service parks with several acres of beautifully groomed lawn sloping down to the water’s edge. From Hart-Tish one can look south across the lake to the peaks of the majestic Red Butte Wilderness. Facilities include piped water, flush toilets, three tent sites, seven RV sites, and three picnic sites.
The boat ramp is usable until the lake drops below 1928 feet (above sea-level) or when the facility is closed for winter.
