Nice, clean and great location

Had a great time here. Kind hosts, lots of amenities and close to lists of activities. Just a hope to wineries, Stonehenge and hikes. Right on the river. Really enjoyed this campsite and would definitely stay again.

Forest fun near great hike

Nice campground with a friendly host right near the water. No cell service so we were able to enjoy nature and each other. Bring water! There is no potable water at the site. Parking is a little tricky and you are directly off of the freeway. Noise from cars is constant but the water near by sounds nice. There’s a great hike just up the road - Tamanawas Fall Trail. Rumor has it the hike is only a mile but it’s more like 4 round trip but there’s a great waterfall at the end. Just be prepared for longer than a mile and a few steep parts and loose rocks. Easy access to East Fork Hood River. I had a great time with my friends cut really would preferred a quieter spot.

Cute, cozy and a little noisy

Spent two nights here with my kids. It was well maintained, clean restrooms and was right near a creek. It was about .5 miles away from the Columbia but it wasn’t really safe to travel by foot since it crossed the freeway. It’s right by I-84 and the railroad track so there was constant noise. Bring ear plugs and be prepared for the sound of cars, trucks and trains at all hours. It’s about 5 miles south of Hood River, so it was easy to hop in the car and have some fun there as well. Despite the noise, we had a great time. My kids enjoyed themselves, made friends and even had a visit from a friend beaver passing out stickers and junior ranger pins
