Cascade Locks Information
About Cascade Locks
Named after a set of locks built to improve navigation past the Cascades Rapids of the Columbia River, Cascade Locks is a small town in Hood River County, Oregon, that attracts visitors from near and far. One of the oldest towns along the River, Cascade Locks is located on a part of the river that Lewis and Clark once referred to as “the great rapids of the cascade.” In addition to its unique and colorful history tied to the Columbia River, Cascade Locks has many different attractions that entertain, ranging from hidden waterfalls and picnicking in the park to spending time on Thunder Island.
Things to Do in Cascade Locks
Discover the town’s interesting history at the Cascade Locks Historical Museum, which is located in the Port of Cascade Locks Marine Park in one of the three original locktenders’ houses. In addition to the museum, the first steam locomotive built on the Pacific Coast is also on display here, and admission is $3 for adults, $2 for seniors and kids, and $5 for families. Walk around the Bridge of the Gods Trailhead, located at the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. To enjoy panoramic views of the Columbia Gorge, go hiking at Beacon State Park, and don’t forget to visit Wahclella Falls, which is located along Tanner Creek. Cascade Locks and Canal is another scenic spot along the Gorge that offers everything from boating and fishing to picnics and concerts, and Government Cove and Eagle Creek Waterfalls offer great hiking opportunities. Another fun thing to do is visit Thunder Island, which is a small island that was carved out of the mainland in 1890 to build the Cascade Locks and Canal. Nowadays, people visit her to go for walks, picnics, see fishermen in action, and even host special events like weddings. To get to Thunder island, you simply walk across a footbridge that is a short walk from the mainland.
