  • We have ridden our horses here for years and love the beauty and variety. The trails are not difficult and each season brings its own unique beauty and enjoyment. 
  • It was a clear night and could see lots of stars you forget how beautiful they can be when you live in the city. Nice walk down to the water. Also the view point had pretty views of Mt. Hood . 
  • This very remarkable and interesting State Park is located in the vicinity of the town of Estacada. The respective input is crucial for further activities in the Park. We drove through the "South entrance". As in all State Parks, a fee of $5 is due, which can be paid cash or card at a kiosk. Worth a visit: the scenic Clackamas River with its Rapids, the fish hatchery with the rearing of salmon, Stealheads and trouts (salmon and trout). Only visually, there are explanations, we have seen staff. One can also find the Estacada Lake and the mill Park dam. There are several hiking trails, but leaves to be desired the signage in the Park sometimes. Taking the North Entrance, you will see also to boat rental. In addition, you should know that many riders use this site with their horses.

  • Best place for a relaxing float or bbq! Floating the upper to lower boat ramp is a nice 2.5 hour experience with minor whitewater that is easily managed by people with modest river experience. If youre an unsure swimmer please remeber to bring a life jacket and stay safe! Alcohol is only allowed in designated areas of the park but has no restrictions on the river itself. Be responsible by cleaning up after yourself and have a good time!
  • Huge state park with some great features: two disc golf course with some serious yardage, horse facilities, camping, whitewater rafting, as well as picnicking and walking on the property. Oregon State Parks always keeps it in top shape.
  • Great disc golf course! One star off for $5 parking fee.
  • Milo (as the locals call it) is a really neat place to explore. There are trails for both hikers and equestrians. I've never been there and not see a horse or two. Milo has several miles of trails, and they run both in the woods and along the river (Clackamas). They have a great off leash area. But, it isn't fenced, and placed between an equestrian trail and the road. If your pup isn't quite comfortable with horses and likely to run into the road you might want to re-evaluate letting them run here. The group campsites here are good sized, and I've hosted a group of 50+ at the three of them near the main campground. I'd come back here again with a group. The sites in the main campground have beautiful tall mature trees, and this is a great spot to escape the heat of the Summer. Reservations are required, and they aren't always easy to get. So, do your research and make reservations if you plan to visit between June and September. You can't just run up to Milo and hope to get a spot - you won't. Icy winters often dictate how soon Milo opens and closes each year. Milo has a beautiful disc golf course. They have pro tournaments here, but the amateur can have fun too! Just don't come on a tournament weekend - you won't get to play. Milo can be a lot of fun, just realize you might not get much privacy anywhere in the park on a busy Summer weekend/holiday. There is a day use fee charged to visit this park.
  • I camp here frequently and I've only had one negative experience with a camp host they're friendly and accommodating... showers always hot and not coin op and there is a lot to explore
