Where To Stay

Oregon and Washington are connected by the “Bridge of the Gods”, which is a steel truss cantilever toll bridge opened in 1926.  The next bridge west is in Portland, and another bridge east is in Hood River. The Hood River bridge is also a toll bridge.  The toll in Cascade Locks is $3 each way.  If you fish with us, we can tell you the ancient story of how the Bridge of the Gods got its name, as well as some other Native American history which is rich and exciting with stories of Lewis and Clark making their way down the Columbia River with Pocohontis (A statue of her can be found in the Park here in town).  We have the Cascade Locks Historical Museum in the park here, as well as the Columbia Gorge Interpretive Center Museum with great information about the area.

Skamania Coves is family owned and privately operated; it is not associated with Skamania Lodge. Nestled on 30 acres of waterfront property, their 7 luxurious vacation homes and multiple RV spaces, have spectacular views and access to the Columbia River. Together, the owners, property manager, cleaning crew, and landscapers are dedicated to maintaining the houses and land to ensure your stay will be memorable, relaxing, and joyful.

In 1921, Oregon lumber magnate and philanthropist, Simon Benson, speaking of the region’s fledgling tourism industry, observed, in part:  “We have built good roads and invited the world to come view our beauty spots, but we have done nothing toward taking care of them after they arrive.”  In response to that need, Benson built the Columbia Gorge Hotel.

RV Websites that are Helpful

Has an all in one website that lets you put in some information, and it gives you a list of all kinds of areas and has ratings including bathrooms, overall beauty, list of amenities, etc. 

I would suggest clicking on the state you want, and look from there.  I like the ratings, photos, and lists of things to do in the area. Another great resource for finding places to stay in the area.

Another all inclusive website that breaks your search down to campling, RV, cabins and treehouses. Once you click on your preference, it takes you to a site with a map on the right, and the locations on the left for a user-friendly option.
