One of the most amazing drives in the Pacific Northwest hugs the incredible Columbia River that divides Washington and Oregon.
Yesterday when I was driving west along Washington’s Hwy 14 then along I-84 on the Oregon state’s side, I was taken with the high number of very brave wind surfers zipping across the wide expanse of the Columbia.
One great online resource for locating campgrounds along this awe inspiring river is the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department’s “Explore the Columbia Gorge.”
There are 21 Oregon parks within easy access of I-84. The four with over-night campgrounds are: Memaloose near The Dalles; Viento near Hood River; Ainsworth near Corbett; and a little further away, Milo McIver, 45 minutes from Portland.
