“in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge”
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.
Like most KOA's, this one was well kept and clean. It has plenty of trees for shade. The playground was old and could use some updating, but provided a few minutes of fun for my 7 year old. There was no waiting at the laundry facilities with several machines to choose from. The pool and spa looked clean and inviting, but our short stay didn't allow us to enjoy them. The biggest negative to this KOA was the constant train whistles at all hours of the night. Unfortunately, this kept my wife up all night. Also, the location looks like it would be right on the river, but its actually well away from the water and has no view of it whatsoever. All in all, its a nice place to stay if you plan on enjoying the Columbia River Gorge. Just bring your ear plugs if you are sensitive to noise when sleeping.
Campground was clean and staff were friendly and courteous, but don't stay here if you don't want to hear trains and air horns all night long. Won't stay there again.
Lovely deluxe cabin. Plenty of room and all neccesities. Clean and private. A train does pass by all hours, but my husband and I found it soothing.
