When the mountains of the Columbia River Gorge rise above you and the waterfalls tumble silver from the heights, when the river reaches to beyond, a wondrous thing happens. You breathe easier. Your heart lets loose. You come home to yourself.
At the heart of it all, you’ll discover a small town. A genuine town full of friendly folks waiting to say, "Hi." Here, in Cascade Locks, you’re free to choose – between big adventures, and life’s small pleasures.
Ride our Sternwheeler on a river of stories – from ancient native fishers to Lewis and Clark. Sail our world famous winds. Hike our trails to hidden waterfalls, or vast vistas. Fish our award-winning waters. Have an ice cream. Grab a bite. View the beauty that surrounds you. Visit a gallery to see it through our artists’ eyes. Shop unique shops. Bike our paths, free of traffic. Have an old fashioned picnic in our park – play pirate with your kids on Thunder Island. Stay the night.
From big adventures to small pleasures, we’re your choice location. Welcome to Cascade Locks.
