If you are camping, please be aware of the fire danger. Rarely are open flames allowed so do not plan on sitting around a campfire. Please be sure to leave no trace.
There are many places to camp in the Columbia Gorge but the 2 closest places are the Peach Beach Campground, and the Maryhill State Park. These are located on the northern shore of the Columbia, just off of US Highway 97. Both offer camping right at the rivers edge along with hot showers and electrical hook-ups for your RV’s. Follow the links for reservations.
There will be a name change to one of the Choice Hotels sometime in 2019

Places to eat

Biggs also has a McDonalds and a sandwich shop for cheap eats on the go.
Casa El Mirador
If you are looking for lots of food in The Dalles, this is your place. They have an “All you can Eat” option with homemade tortillas…what else needs to be said.
Clock Tower Ales
If you want a craft brew or cider, and a decent burger check out Clock Tower Ales in The Dalles. This historical clocktower used to be the place for public hangings, back in the day.
