Trout Creek Camp is a family-owned property of over 250 forested acres, streams and waterfalls located in the foothills of the Williamette Valley, about a one-hour drive from Portland.
Your rustic cabin is located directly on the confluence of rushing Trout Creek and the sparking Mollala River, a tributary of the majestic Columbia.
The cabin has panoramic views of the clean, clear river, teeming with salmon and trout. Birds abound. You may frequently see river otters or beavers building their homes. Old-growth and second-growth fir, pine and cedar trees surround you.
Over 100 years old, the cabin has a large master bedroom, living room, large kitchen/dining room, a sleeping loft and large bathroom. A broad sitting porch looks over scenic Trout Creek, perfect for reading, writing or relaxing. The cabin easily sleeps four.
The soothing sounds of the river and creek will wash away your everyday cares. Plunge into the crystal clear water to swim in the natural pools, or hike up the river to the rapids and waterfalls.
Enjoy rhododendron blooming in the spring or pick blackberries in the summer. Try your luck fishing for the salmon lazily circling in the river (license required). Hike the trails on the property or through the adjacent conservation lands.
This rustic retreat is ideal for nature lovers, writers, hikers, fishermen and contemplative types.
If you require all the modern conveniences, this beautiful property may not be the best fit for you. Cell phone service is spotty. But there are two wood-burning stoves, refrigerator, hot-plate, microwave, washer and dryer, a landline phone and internet access.
Welcome the evening sitting beside a fire in one of two outdoor fire pits, one with the creek view and one with the river view.
The cabin sits between a fast-rushing stream and a beautiful river. Your rustic cabin is located directly on the confluence of the two - Trout Creek and the sparking Mollala River, a tributary of the majestic Columbia. Both are clean and crystal clear....moreless

About the owner: This rustic retreat is a place to sit and read on the porch overlooking Trout Creek all day and never see or hear another person. You can fish for the salmon that swim in lazy circles in the deep cool water of the Molalla River. You can fly across the river on a zip line fastened to two tall trees, and plunge into the water below. You can take long walks around the property and the adjacent conservation areas. As a day comes to a close, you can watch the stars from around the campfire, or snuggle up inside near the wood burning stove.
Why the Owner Chose Molalla: This property has been in our family for generations. My feisty grandmother resisted many efforts by logging concerns to buy the lumber rights, or to build logging roads through the property. As a result, it is now a rare example of virgin first and second growth forest. The home is extremely private. Except for the caretaker who lives on site, the closest neighbor is over a mile away. It is rustic, comfortable, and truly away from it all.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Trout Creek Camp is not fancy and not modern. But if you, like us, appreciate simplicity, and enjoy nature in all its wonder, your needs and expectations will be more than met.
