Campground Description

Campground Description

Team

Whether you have traveled down the Historic Columbia River Highway to check out Latourell Falls, Multnomah Falls, the Oneonta Gorge or Elowah Falls, your closest option for a full-service campground is Ainsworth State Park.  The state park is located on the eastern end of the Columbia River Highway, tucked away just east of Horsetail Falls. Primarily shaded by a forest canopy of Douglas fir and red alder, the park offers six walk-in campsites and 43 full hook-up sites, along with well-maintained restrooms, showers, a horseshoe pit and even a movie/slideshow screen perfect for plugging in a projector and reviewing your day’s photos of spectacular cascades.

If these campsites are fully booked, try Viento State Park and Memaloose State Park further east on I-84, or Beacon Rock State Park Campground on the Washington side of the Gorge.
