The Cascade Locks Marine Park Campground is perfect for LTV’s. The small little campground overlooks the once used Columbia River Lock, which now serves as a fishing dock on the Columbia River for locals and native tribes fisherman . You can walk right down to the lock and purchase fresh salmon for your dinner. Stroll the beautiful park along the Columbia, enjoy the front row view of Bridge of the Gods or walk the 1/8 mile to town and have an excellent meal. Its one of the only campgrounds along the Columbia River that is not immediately adjacent to Hwy 84 so you can relax and enjoy the sound of the mighty river.

Campground Tips

There are only 12 sites along with 6 tent sites so choose any one. They all afford front row seat to the river with lovely grassy sites. Off season rates are low with power and water at the site and dump station at the entry.
