Located in the heart of the breathtaking Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, this KOA will have you rollin' along the river in no time - whether you're cruising aboard the stern-wheeler Columbia Gorge, exploring waterfalls along the historic Columbia River Highway or hiking on Larch Mountain's trails at an elevation of 4,000 feet. Displays in the riverfront Marine Park explain the 19th-century locks that made the turbulent Columbia passable (and gave Cascade Locks its name). In nearby Hood River, the Mount Hood Railroad links the Columbia Gorge with the foothills of snowcapped Mount Hood. Camp among forested Tent Sites, full-hookup RV Sites with 110-foot pull thrus, one- and two-room Camping Cabins and Deluxe Cabins.
My family and I stayed here when we were visiting the mount Hood area. This was a great little campground with lots of trees and not too many people. There were a ton of amenities at this campground, like wifi, bike rentals, a play ground for the kids. We didn't spend a ton of time here, because we were always out hiking and exploring, but the time we spent was super nice and relaxing. There was a pool and lots of activities set up by the camp.
So many great hikes in the area too. Definitely check out Tom, Dick, and Harry Trail. It had great views of the mountain. There's also a ton of great waterfall hikes in the area, like Ramona falls and Tamanawas Falls.
We had a great time at the campground and in the area in general. Hood mountain was a beautiful place!
This camp has RV sites, tent sites and beautiful cabins with porch swings and is located close to the Columbia River waterfalls.
Little luxuries include a camp store where we picked up bacon and eggs, an outdoor pool with hot tub, bathrooms with showers, “wood” ceramic floors and halo lighted mirrors plus facilities with washer/dryers and an outdoor sink to wash dishes.
Some people might find the train coming through right behind the camp several times a day and night a little annoying but we didn’t mind. We realized that the train blew 2 long, 1 short and 1 long whistle right before it reached the camp which is a warning (we googled it) that a train is coming through with engine in front and for cars/people to clear the track….the things you learn when you camp🚂
Stayed in one of the cabins very nice camp can purchase breakfast only downfall was noisy trains next to the camp
A typical KOA, with a store, cabins, deluxe cabins, tent sites and RV sites. What they don’t tell you is the freight train runs about every 30 minutes including overnight. The first time was a big surprise, but we got used to it.
The facilities were stocked and mostly clean. Unfortunately, campfires were not allowed when we stayed, but it wasn’t their fault. There were also a ton of yellow-jacket bees, but they worked hard to control them with effective traps.
Tight sites, shaded, noisy but quiets down. Close to town to run in for a meal. Good to use when just passing through the area. Clean and well maintained with a pool.
This is a nice little campground. I am writing as a person who camps in a tent so it may be a little different for RV. This campground is very close to a railroad that is used a lot. No matter what time of day,or more importantly Night, the trains go by with their horns blaring. At least every 2 hours at night. Very difficult to get a good nights sleep. An RV might be quieter but as the blaring horn is so loud I can't believe anyone could miss it. We had a great tent site and the place was pretty busy, so maybe a lot of people don't mind the blaring horns but I found them very annoying. Also tent sites have to walk a fair ways to get water, not a real big deal but a closer spigot for the tent sites might be nice.
The town of Cascade locks is beautiful, the bridge of God's is very cool. The park for the kids on the camp site is lacking but the pool is nice.
