"CAMP SHERMAN" Camp Sherman by mtncorg

Camp Sherman Travel Guide: 19 reviews and 25 photos

Camp Sherman consists of a collection of vacation/retirement homes, a semi-luxury lodge, a grocery/deli, campgrounds, a ranger station and a center for the art of fly fishing. the area is well-know for the arcane art of fly fishing for which the Metolius River, flowing fully-formed from a large nearby spring, is close to Nirvana.

But the Mountain Corgi has not mastered the art of fishing - let alone, fly fishing - lack of a workable thum and 4 inch legs make this something she would just as soon leave to others. 'Camp Sherman' is as close as VT comes to some of the nearby spectacular hiking options one has in the central Oregon Cascades. Three Finger Jack is one peak very close by - easily reached from the east (Canyon Creek/Jack Lake) and south (Pacific Crest Trail). Camp Sherman or nearby campgrounds could serve the hiking tourist in good stead though as a home base. Let us join the alpine faery steed as she brings you hiking highlights from the area!!

      VT should go back to the old catalogue way of putting tips within countries and states/provinces instead of continents. It is so difficult to find something even if the pictures are nice. If you are going to travel to a particular State, for example, it would be so much easier to know what places are in a particular region to begin with.

      I totally agree! Australia is a real mess the way it is, and it is really difficult trying to help somebody when all states and towns are mixed in together. I don't know why they ever changed the old way!
