Convenient, right off the interstate, next to the Columbia River.

Our second stay here. Our first time we were next to the highway, this time next to the river.  As stated in other reviews you have the sound of the highway or the sound of the trains.  Neither bother us.

The campsites have enough room between them so that you don't feel crowded.  We had full…

Perfect stop for the night

Very nice park, conveniently just off the freeway. The freeway noise on one side and train on the other is something to consider fir the light sleeper however our soundproofing and the trees helped lots.

Found on accident, served our purpose

5th wheel traveling with big family and multi age group kids:

I was able to reserve a spot in the B loop last minute to breakdown our trip to the Oregon coast and we were very pleased with our experience. 

First, the site hosts were VERY friendly and gave us some awesome tips about Portland…

About This Campground

The stars seem to shine brighter at this campground on the east end of the Columbia River Gorge, 11 miles west of The Dalles. Campsites look over the river and the park’s namesake, Memaloose Island, a place sacred to the indigenous people of the Columbia River Gorge. They would lay the bones of their dead on open pyres on the island. Also buried there is an early settler and town promoter of The Dalles, Senator Victor Trevitt. A granite monument visible from Memaloose campground marks his grave. Today, the park is a gateway to exploring The Dalles and the east end of the Gorge. Visitors will enjoy spring wildflowers and the cooling shade of the maple, willow and cottonwood trees. On summer nights, the park’s grassy meadows are the perfect spot to observe the nightly celestial performance.
