Map & Directions to Mazama Lodge
The Lodge has two parking areas, one for winter and one for summer.
From Portland, follow Hwy 26 east to Government Camp. Just before the turnoff up to Timberline Lodge (left) at the height of the pass, turn off right into the Snopark next to the ODOT maintenance station on the south side of Hwy 26. There is a small loading zone at the base of the footpath up to the Mazamas Lodge (see map below). You can use this area for short term loading/unloading of your equipment & luggage, but then please move your vehicle down to the Snopark area off Hwy 26.
Do not leave any valuables or other goodies (skis included) in your car overnight. Bring everything with you up to the Lodge. Skis and other snow toys can be left in the Lodge basement.
Drivers should be fully prepared for winter driving conditions, including tire chains/traction devices and a shovel. Please check the weather report and the Mt. Hood webcams (the webcam is right in the Snopark for Mazamas Lodge) before you go.
Winter Parking and permits

Do NOT park at the far east or west ends of the Snopark lot where you might block snowplows or ODOT vehicles – you will be towed! No fun! Please park as close as possible to the south edge of the lot (right by the snow mound, away from the highway) so as to make room for the snowplows. Drivers will need a Snopark permit to park. Be sure to have one with you – the fines are steep if you don’t! You can purchase Snopark passes in Sandy or at almost all Portland outdoor stores. Snopark permits may also be required for parking for our activities on Saturday or Sunday.
From the Snopark on the south side of Hwy 26, you’ll need to walk about 200 yards to get to the Lodge (a five minute walk). Cross Hwy 26 (carefully!) and head up the small road opposite (not the road to Timberline). You’ll see two houses on your right; across from the second house is a small pullout on the left (the loading zone mentioned above) with a sign for the Mazamas Lodge. An obvious trail goes uphill through the trees from here with one big switchback to reach the Lodge (see the map above).

Drive 26 east to Government Camp. At the summit at the east end of Govt. Camp, turn left up toward Timberline Lodge. After about 200 yards, take a sharp left. Proceed about 200 yards more, and take a right. This is Westleg Road. GO up Westleg Road about 300 yards, and take the first right to the Lodge.
