Government Camp, Mt. Hood’s Alpine Village, has provided visitors with a variety of lodging, dining and shopping choices since the turn of the 20th century. It serves as a base for visitors to enjoy outstanding recreational opportunities such as hikes, lakes, wildflowers, bike trails and birding, including sites on the Oregon Cascades Birding Trail). Huckleberries, a traditional Native American food, can be gathered today in and around Government Camp, and are also served year-round at the Huckleberry Inn, operated by a third-generation local family.<\/p>\r\n

The route of the Oregon Trail passed through the village, and today nearby sites such as Summit Meadow and Laurel Hill provide visitors with a sense of the pioneers’ challenges. A recent revitalization effort has focused on Cascadian architecture, the development of the Mt. Hood Cultural Center and Museum with its Arts Cabins project, and expanding the summer and winter trail systems that encircle the community. <\/p>","post_name":"mt-hoods-alpine-village","post_type":"resource","slug":"attractions","name":"Attractions","lat":"45.3022","lng":"-121.751","distance":"13.9","permalink":"\/see-do\/oregon-heritage\/history-heritage\/mt-hoods-alpine-village\/","terms":"a Sustainable Travel<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"995","post_title":"Magic Mile Sky Express","post_content":"

Perched 6,000 feet up on the massive south shoulder of Mt. Hood, Timberline Lodge is a classic WPA-era mountain lodge that was built completely by hand from local stone. The lodge is an masterpiece of Cascadian architecture and its long hallways of fir and cedar were made infamous by Jack Nicholson in The Shining<\/em>.

Built in 1936 as a home for skiers and climbers, Timberline is today home to North America's longest ski season. In the height of winter, the ground floor of the lodge is typically fully buried in snow, with entry through a snow tunnel, or directly into the second floor. The lodge together with its cozy rooms, two resident St. Bernards (Bruno and Heidi) pub and restaurant, is a welcome relief after a full day on the slopes.
