Marine Park & Cascade Locks

  Marine Park is located a little north of the Bridge of the Gods along the Columbia River. It has free parking, a children’s playground, picnic tables, beach, boat ramp, marina, campground, and a museum. A foot bridge goes over a portion of the historical 1896 navigational canal and locks and onto a small grassy island.
  The campground is very popular so reservations are necessary.

   Very little of the park is accessible. The bridge is steep and the gravel trail on the island quicky becomes grassy and lumpy. The museum has steps and does not have a ramp. It’s possible to get a good view of the Bridge of the Gods from the park.

  RVs will fit if parked across the spaces.

  1. Looks like you guys have been having a good time up and down the gorge, lately :)

    1. Yes, we have! The gorge is always beautiful. Thanks for telling me about the sections that are opened to bike and foot traffic only. Really nice! (except for the noise from the interstate)
