Directly across the Columbia River from the Bayport RV Park and Campground is the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge, which protects over 5,200 acres of marshes, grasslands, and woodlands. It was established in 1965 to provide habitat for wintering waterfowl, with a particular focus on the dusky Canada goose, as well as sandhill cranes, great blue herons, and a variety of songbirds. Black-tailed deer and cougars also inhabit the refuge, as do raccoons, coyotes, and river otters. You can explore along the 4.2-mile driving route or the 1.2-mile seasonal hiking trail, with seven historic quarries (now listed on the National Register of Historic Places) found in the Basalt Cobblestone Quarries District.
A short drive west of the Bayport RV Park and Campground is the Clatsop State Forest, which is managed by the Astoria District of the Oregon Department of Forestry. It’s home to numerous hiking trails where you can stretch your legs, including the Bloom Lake Trail and the Steam Donkey Trail, a 0.9-mile route that follows part of an old railroad grade. Swimming is also possible in the Nehalem River, while equestrian pursuits are offered at the Northrup Creek Horse Camp.
Your campsite at Bayport RV Park and Campground can also be used as a base for exploring the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, which stretches for more than 80 miles along the border between Oregon and Washington. It plunges to a depth of 4,000 feet at some points while encompassing varied landscapes that range from temperate rainforest to dry grassland. You can explore the scenic area’s magnificent waterfalls along the Historic Columbia River Highway or stretch your legs along one of the trails that meander through the gorge.

Campsites at the Bayport RV Park and Campground are just 35 minutes’ drive from the center of Portland, which is packed with outstanding museums and leafy green spaces. Admire the Native American, Asian, and American works on display at the Portland Art Museum or head across the street to learn about the people and events that have shaped the state at the Oregon Historical Society Museum. A highlight of its collection is the Portland Penny, which was tossed to determine the city’s name back in 1845. Another museum not to miss is the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, which is home to the Kendall Planetarium and the USS Blueback submarine that appeared in the 1990 film, The Hunt for Red October.
You can spend an afternoon exploring the sights of Washington Park, which lies to the west of Portland’s city center. It’s home to the Oregon Holocaust Memorial and the Oregon Vietnam Veterans Memorial, as well as several children’s play areas and themed gardens. Soak up the serenity of the Japanese garden and learn about forests around the globe at the World Forestry Center Discovery Museum, then come face-to-face with elephants and tigers at the Oregon Zoo. If you’re traveling with kids, don’t miss a visit to the Portland Children’s Museum, where they can get hands-on with a range of interactive exhibits.
Just across the Columbia River from Portland is the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site, a 19th-century fur trading post that once served as a headquarters of the Hudson’s Bay Company. It was here that trade goods and supplies from London were exchanged with indigenous people for fur pelts, which were then shipped to the Chinese port of Guangzhou. Begin your visit browsing the archaeological exhibits on display at the visitor center before wandering through the full-scale replica of the fort.
