Camp Emerald Forest

  15 miles west of St. Helens Oregon, the Camp is within Bauder's Emerald Forest, a working 240-acre Certified Timber Farm/Logging Operation 45 miles NW of Portland.

Trees planted and grown on The Emerald Forest in Goble were cut to produce the lumber to construct Wilark Lodge. Trees for posts and beams, and lumber for The Little Black Bear Lodge, were harvested on the Emerald Forest at Wilark. Old logging saws and antiques add a warm and rustic charm.

Awesome views of Mts. Rainier, St. Helens, Adams and Hood await all coming or going!


Camp Emerald Forest is a valuable resource in the NW, and to International Guests on tour! Interesting choices include Boating or Swimming on Emerald Lake, Hiking and Meditation.

The new Little Black Bear Lodge and Wilark Lodge now provide increased sleeping for 40 Guests.

Our Dream for a Christian Interdenominational Forest Retreat became real with our very first Guests in 1989. We are Grateful to God, and continue pampering our Guests in the "Old-Fashioned" way!
