We have traveled to Hood River a few times and really enjoy the area. We have stayed at Memaloose State Park. A beautiful and scenic State Park with nice campsites right on the Columbia River.
We hiked the Mosier Plateau Trail, a 2.5 mile hike with gorgeous views of the Columbia River Gorge!
We also did a 3.5 mile hike to Tamanawas Falls, it’s a beautiful hike with a very well maintained trail. At the end you’re rewarded with the cool sprays from the waterfall, so awesome!
Windsurfing and Kiteboarding is something one of our kids always try to include in the trip to the area!
There is a great children’s park right on the waterfront where you can watch kite-boarders and windsurfers. Some of the other highlights of our visits Mikes Ice Cream, Solstice, pFriem, 4 & 20 Blackbirds and Stoked
