Lake Harriet

Fourth Season

This year started my fourth season as Camp Host at Lake Harriet Campground in the Mt Hood National Forest.  I guess you can say I really love this campground.  This past fall PGE (Portland General Electric) did a complete upgrade to the park.  This also included moving the host site for my previous space to a spot closer to the Day Use are.

This is a pic of my view of the Oak Grove Fork of the Clackamah River.

My Home for four months

This is my campsite.  It was a bit warmer here as there weren’t many trees to block the sun.  Also there was usually a lot of wind blowing in from the lake.

Here is my cocktail table.

My personal boat landing

I was lucky that I had my own personal boat landing where I can lauch by dingy.

I will take more pics of the upgrade to the campgrounds including the new fishing and boat docks.

  3. Nice to hear from you, Jim. Your new campsite looks good. Lake Harriet is a very scenic area and I bet they are very glad to have you hosting there again this year.

  4. Hello Jim,As always, Jeannette and I enjoy reading your blog and keeping up with you and your doggie… even though our LD paths haven’t crossed in a few years. We have our LD up for sale; recently good friends provided us with a 37ft Diesel Pusherto have for our next season on RVing. Perhaps you’ll post our ad. Happy summer to you, Jim Jack & Jeannette WalkerBrea, CA // Chattanooga, TN  // •• JUST REDUCED! 2003 LazyDaze 30ft IslBed • 2nd Owner

    … your LD is obviously well-maintained and in great shape for its age. I was really impressed with the quality… |

  5. WOW! How nice that you wake up each morning to such beauty! Hot, dry and too many fires that CA is suffering with. Oregon is definitely the place to be! Congratulations to you! Blessings, Ann & Chuck

  6. Hi Jim!

    Marti and Charlie
