The Beach

Enjoy seven miles of pristine beachfront perfect for playing in the sand, strolling by the water, and enjoying the sunset each night.

Hiking & Interpretive Trails

We have several hiking trails on-site ranging from easy to moderate in difficulty. The Ocean View Nature Trail, Lakeside Nature Trail, Beach Walks, Wetland Nature Walk, and Nature Discovery Loop are among the favorites of guests. Don’t forget to ask for a hiker's map at the Camp Office to plan your next trail adventure. 

Sports Fields

The camp has three Sports Fields (the North Ball Field, located just beyond the camp entrance, Marvel Field, located west of the sports court, and the Gathering Space, located in the center of camp. The fields can accommodate recreational games of soccer, baseball, softball, Frisbee, football, tag, or any other group games that require a large open space.

Sports Court

Enjoy the use of our outdoor sports court year-round. We have basketballs, volleyballs, softballs, horseshoes, croquet, soccer balls, bocce balls, badminton sets, and much more available for checkout at the Camp Office or feel free to bring your own equipment.

Ga-Ga Pit

Play this fast paced camp-friendly version of dodgeball where every player has an equal chance of emerging the winner!  Played with a soft plastic ball, players must try to eliminate other players from the game by hitting them with the ball below the knees.


Children can enjoy the swings, play structure, slides, or sandbox in the Benjamin Lemmond playground. Located north of the sports court, this is a favorite past time for kids and adults alike.

Sand Volleyball Court

The volleyball court is a sand court.

Campfire Circles

Camp Magruder has six campfire circles complete with seating and firewood available for our guests. Upon check-in you will be assigned a campfire circle to use if desired. Campfires are allowed in campfire circles or on the beach. Campfire circles may be used for gatherings, songs, skits, s’mores and for cooking over the fire.  Contact the food services manager to request s’more supplies for your group for a small additional fee.

Contemplative Spaces

Take time to reflect and meditate while you are away by walking the labyrinth, worshiping at lakeside chapel, or reflecting by the lake in the meditation patio. 

Tide Pools

Hike south along the lakeside trail past hidden lake, through the village of Barview, then along the railroad grade to the Three Graces rock formation near the mouth of Tillamook Bay at low tide to explore a sea cave and some wonderful tide pools.  See how many types of sea creatures that you can find!
