A Unique Oregon Wedding and Event Setting

A Unique Opportunity to Come Back to Camp

Camp Colton is an eighty-acre event facility of incomparable beauty. A mere 45 minutes drive from most any address in Portland, our camp is nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, between Molalla and Estacada. The woods and creeks create an ambiance of stimulating serenity. Its forest has ripened and deepened since its beginnings as a children's camp in the 1920's.

Camp Colton is heavily timbered and the topography is varied. The grounds include two creeks, a pond, a lodge, six retreat cottages, bridal dressing quarters and an historic chapel. There are several miles of hiking trails which cover interesting and beautiful terrain. At an elevation of 850 feet, our climate is moderate year round.

Visitors enjoy hiking and exploring, fishing in the creeks or in our trout ponds, bird watching, photography, playing horseshoes, and evening campfires.

Access to Camp Colton is easy and convenient, entering directly off of state highway 211, yet from the moment you pass through our stone-pillared gate, the outside world will be forgotten. Whether for a country wedding or a week-long retreat, no matter what the occasion, you will find the setting in our forest enchanting.

And if there is a wedding in your future, plan to make it part of a return to your days at summer camp. A camp wedding suits the times; you will have the elegance you desire for your wedding, with the informality of camp.
