The Great Outdoors

The Columbia River Gorge is a massive attraction in northern Oregon and southern Washington, lined with campgrounds, state parks, and boat launches. Wygant State Park is worth a visit when you rent an RV near Cascade Locks/Portland East KOA, especially if you like lofty vantage points with sweeping views of the river below. You won’t find much development or any facilities in the park, but there are peaceful hiking trails and an old stretch of abandoned highway that was never completed.Directly next to the Wygant State Park, you can find Viento State Park and Seneca Fouts Memorial State Park. Viento State Park is named for the old train station that once stood there. The park has a seasonal campground where you can park your RV rental if you can’t get enough of the hiking trails and the Columbia River. Due to the high velocity and abundance of wind on the river, Viento State Park is a popular spot for windsurfing and kiteboarding. Seneca Fouts Memorial State Park also has its fair share of hiking trails, old abandoned highway sites, and riverfront swimming and fishing areas.One of Oregon’s most incredible natural treasures is not far from Cascade Locks/Portland East KOA, and when you book an RV in Hood River County, you can easily get to it. Mount Hood National Forest is an absolutely epic woodland paradise blanketing the state’s tallest peak. Millions of people enter the forest each year to explore and navigate their way throughout the million-acre wonderland, teeming with all sorts of wildlife and endemic plant species. Subalpine meadows decorated with every flower imaginable, hidden waterfalls, glacial lakes at altitude, and, of course, the summit of Mount Hood itself are all things that you will want to see when you rent an RV near Cascade Locks/Portland East KOA.

Exploring the City

Cascade Locks might not have the size or the abundance of attractions that Portland does, but there's plenty to do when you take your RV rental for a ride into town. Whether you need to shop for groceries, buy souvenirs, grab a bite to eat, or see some museums, Cascade Locks won’t disappoint. Bonneville Lock & Dam is a marvelous testament to human ingenuity, with four components each worth seeing. The dam and fish ladder are curious features that help visitors understand the science and engineering behind these large systems, with as little impact on the environment as possible. There are a small museum and a fish hatchery on site too, and views from the top often yield rainbows thanks to the water mist rising from the rapids.The Bridge of the Gods is epic as the name suggests, spanning the Columbia River connecting Washington and Oregon. Pictures and views from the bridge are part of the fun, so don't skip out on this human-made modern marvel.Lorang Fine Art is a small art gallery and workshop where you can see some lovely, locally made artwork. You can purchase or see sculptures, metallurgic artwork, and a series of other impressive designs when you visit this small art gallery. If you are hoping to see more big-city attractions, Portland is not far from the RV park, and always worth a day trip.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
