10 Great Indoor Family Activities In Mt. Hood Territory

Winter brings rain to the valley and snow to the mountain. But when you're ready to get out of the elements, Mt. Hood Territory offers some incredible places to explore indoors. 

North American Bigfoot Center

Newly opened in August 2019, the North American Bigfoot Center is the hub for all things about the elusive creature known as Bigfoot. According to legend, this creature has roamed the forests of Mt. Hood and North America for hundreds of years. The center features exhibits on lore, culture, research and artifacts, making it a must visit for believers and skeptics alike.

Mt. Hood Express to Timberline Lodge

If you are concerned about driving in the snow but don't want to miss out on all the Mt. Hood fun, you're in luck. You can ride the Mt. Hood Express from Sandy to Timberline, with stops at Skibowl and Government Camp and take a tour of Timberline Lodge without ever getting behind the wheel. Buses operate seven times a day, seven days a week, with an additional late night bus December 1 through March 31.

End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive & Visitor Information Center

The End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center is an interactive museum that highlights the stories of pioneer’s journals. The museum features the original film “Bound for Oregon,” interactive exhibits like candle dipping, rag doll making and packing a wagon.

North Clackamas Aquatic Park

Swimming might not seem like a winter activity, but at the North Clackamas Aquatic Park, it’s the perfect way to make a splash! With the largest wave pool in Oregon, a toddler splash area, waterslides and a 29-foot rock climbing wall, your family is sure to have hours of fun.

World of Speed Motorsports Museum

The World of Speed Motorsports Museum features many areas of motorsports, including drag racing, land-speed racing, motorcycle racing, NASCAR and hydroplanes. Take a spin on one of the simulators and walk the special exhibits of the Daytona Banking Wall, Women in Racing and a rotating feature exhibit, which currently is Mario Andretti: Racing Royalty.

Ultrazone Laser Tag

Pew pew! At Ultrazone Laser Tag guests experience the largest and only multi-level arena in the Portland area. There is also an arcade with 25 games and a snack bar. Kids (and big kids) will have a blast playing laser tag!

Mt. Hood Cultural Center & Museum

If you've had a life long love affair with Mt. Hood or recently came to appreciate the beauty, you'll be amazed by all the fascinating history. Visit the Mt. Hood Cultural Center and Museum while in Government Camp to witness the exhibits that showcase historic skiing and snow sports.

Bullwinkle’s Entertainment

Newly remodeled in summer 2019, Bullwinkle’s Entertainment features more than 10 attractions including go-karts, laser tag, miniature golf and bowling. It also includes a restaurant and bar.

Wippersnappers

Just because you’re on the mountain doesn’t mean you have to be out in the elements. At Wippersnappers, kids can play on the three levels of play areas including tunnel slides, trampoline room and web crawls. Adults can enjoy multiple TVs, a café and beer and wine selections while their kids play.

Kitchen at Middleground Farms

Enjoy recreational cooking classes that explore fundamental skills in the kitchen and garden.
