This was my second trip to Mt Hood, and my first time staying in Government Camp (last year we stayed closer to Zig Zag). I definitely recommend staying here because it is so close to the ski resorts. It made it super easy to get up to Timberline when the lifts opened without having to get up insanely early, and the drive home was pleasantly short.
The only drawback is that the walls are a little thin and the beds in our unit were only queen size. That being said, the unit is well sized for two families to share–4 adults and 3 kids in our case. Everything was well maintained and clean before we arrived. The kitchen was a great size for preparing meals for two families. The staff in the main office was always cheerful and helpful. There is a great outdoor pool that the kids swam in every day, despite the temperature ranging from 30-40 degrees F, and the hot tub was a relief to use after a long day skiing. The whole complex has a nice vibe and we found the people there, both residents and renters, to be outgoing and friendly. This is a very kid friendly place.
