The Sandy River Outdoor School site is located at Camp Angelos, about 15 miles from the MESD office. It takes approximately 25 minutes to reach the Sandy River site from the MESD office. The closest community is Springdale, with Troutdale a few minutes away. The Sandy River site is located on the Sandy River, west of Mount Hood.
Directions for East County Schools: Proceed east on Stark Street. Stark Street ends when you cross the bridge over the Sandy River. After crossing the bridge, turn right and you will come to the town of Springdale (approx. 2 miles). Swing right at the signal light in Springdale. This signal may not be operational. After making this right you will come to a fork in the road (approx. 300 feet). Take the right fork (Hurlburt Road, you will also see a sign for Camp Angelos) and continue on Hurlburt for .3 miles to SE Christensen Road (there is another sign for Camp Angelos on the telephone pole) then turn right. Continue on until the road turns into SE Stevens Rd. Continue until the road ends and you see the entrance to the Camp Angelos / Sandy River site.
