Hart-Tish Park & Campground

Take Upper Applegate Road out of Ruch and follow the Applegate River past the Applegate Dam. Just past the dam you come to Hart-tish Campground. Hart-tish offers day use areas for swimmers and also a cement boat ramp. The Applegate Lake borders the campground making the view worth the drive. Hart-tish has eight tent sites set in shaded trees all with their own campfire and bar-b-que pits. RV sites are in front of the general store. These offer you the view of the lake. All of the campsites are dry camping, however we have clean modern restroom for your convenience. Kayak rentals are available. For a small day use fee you can launch your boat at our cement dock and enjoy the beautiful Applegate Lake. Trails around the lake provide hikers and mountain bikers room to roam.

In the upper parking lot we have a slopping green lawn where the swimming is great and families can get together and enjoy their day in the sun. Our parking lot and main trails thru the park are paved and easily assessable. Hart-tish Campground is open seasonal May thru Sept. and maintained by a host. The general store sits at the base of the hill offering you last minute needs, fishing supplies and those much needed snacks. Hart-tish is a great place to relax, enjoy the lake and just set back. The fishing is great, the relaxing at its finest and the breeze is cool.
