Government Camp is a small and beautiful town located near Portland in the stunning mountain scenery of Oregon. It’s home of many ski resorts and has a population of less than 500. It doesn't get very hot here, so it’s a great place to escape the heat in the summertime, and is a popular getaway destination for families.
