Eagle Creek Campground – Cascade Locks, OR
Romtec designed, supplied, and installed a vault restroom to match an existing historic restroom building at Eagle Creek Campground. Eagle Creek Campground is in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area near Cascade Locks, Oregon and is considered to be the first developed campground the United States Forest Service (USFS) completed. This area is rich with natural entertainment, including a network of hiking trails, access to the Columbia River, fish hatcheries, and several campgrounds. The Eagle Creek Campground alone offers 17 campsites with access to clean drinking water and two restrooms. The first restroom installed here is known by the USFS as “Big John,” and it was the first plumbed restroom ever provided in a campground. Additionally, “Big John” was the inspiration for the design of the new Romtec waterless restroom and showcases the USFS pine tree in the center of the building. Eagle Creek Campground is one of many examples of the USFS’s dedication to providing the best recreation opportunities in our preserved wilderness areas.
