Scenic camping/hiking spots

by sagar770

I'm visiting Portland on August 26 for a week. I was wanting to get some recommendations on some good/sceneic camping spots, hiking spots, and good areas to do white water rafting, etc. We really want spots that look amazing and will give us the best experience.

Thanks for all the suggestions in advance.

The best campgrounds anywhere near Portland are reserved and sold out months in advance.

You can try Silver Falls State Park (SE of Portland about 1.5 hours) or Beacon Rock State Park (about 1 hour east of Portland in Washington). I suggest calling the reservations line as soon as possible to see if there are places left at either of those.

Neither of those have white water rafting, but they do have most of everything else you have.

If they are booked up come back and let me know. There are other places that aren't quite as nice that might be worth looking into, but try those two first.

Thanks for the reply. Looks like Beacon Rock is my best bet.

They don't take reservations, though:

All campsites are first-come, first-served."

Maybe that's a good thing?

In this case it probably is a good thing.

Heres the stuff I have written about it, but it has more hiking trails than what I have written about.

There are also trails up to the top of Hamilton Mountain and a few other Columbia River Gorge locations from the "upper" parking lot on the other side of highway 14.

The thing with white water rafting near Portland is there really isn't any. There are a couple of places near Eugene, but they are a long way from Portland. The Deschutes River in central Oregon is good, but that is not a day's trip out of Portland. Your best bet for that one is to base your trip somewhere near Bend.

There are some people who do the Clackamas River, which is close to Portland, but my impression is that this is not a river that most people regard as that great a rafting trip. It is also very cold water, and even in summer months there are a few people that get killed every year because when the go into the water it is a sharp enough contrast they go into a shock of sorts. During good weather it is also very crowded.

I know there are a few in central and eastern Washington, but I don't know them very well, and certainly they are not one day trips out of Portland either.

I just got back from a visit to a friend in Seattle, and we did not do a planned raft trip on the Yakima River in Central Washington as they consider the current river conditions there, and many other places in central Washington to be unsafe.

I'm hoping that you are able to find a place that is open for rafting, considering what we ran into there.

Travel Tips for Portland

Driving Into Portland

by machomikemd

Portland is just s small city so it is fairly easy to drive here and not get lost unlike in los angeles. Portland's downtown area can be walked in about a half an hour. Small parks, trees, shops and cafes make taking one's feet a rewarding experience. but a caution, Most roads are one way, signage is confusing at best even to locals, lanes suddenly turn into on-ramps for bridges and it appears to be illegal to even think about making a left-handed turn anywhere in the city.

by oneonta_ni

I am not a big fan of zoos, in fact, I usually do my best to avoid them. But the Portland zoo is quite well known for being very humane and the animals are not kept in cages. They are contained in as natural an environment as possible which means they have places to hide from the public.

The zoo is most famous for it's elephants and the most famous of the elephants is Packy. Every year his birthday is celebrated with a huge carrot cake.

This is one of Packy's friends, Kevin the Zebra.

Driving? Watch out for bikes!

by xeberus

In Portland, more than just about any other major US city, biking is a way of life. People bike for health, entertainment, and transportation. Please be considerate of bike riders. They have the right to be on the road and driving in the bike lane is NOT acceptable, not even when making a right turn. Or even better, leave your car behind. Portland has a great public transit system. You can get to most places by bus, light rail, or street car easily. Walking and renting a bike are also good options.


by TashieKitten

The city itself is divided into micro cultures. Southwest Portland tends to be more affluent while Southeast Portland is more Bohemian where vegetarian restaurants abound and a proposed McDonald's was vehemently opposed, to the point the plans were cancelled.
Northwest Portland (around 21st and 23rd avenues) is trendy and hip: coffee houses, old Victorian homes and many restuarants.
Northeast Portland has a bit of a 'reputation' for being...not the safest place. But areas around NE Alameda have some gorgeous homes.

Old Rose & Raindrop Pub

by richiecdisc

The Old Rose & Raindrop Pub on Grand Avenue in East Portland had been around in some incarnation for 100 years. This old Victorian housed one of the most authentic English style pubs in the United States with a great old wooden bar and lots of carved wood in the interior. It was a sister pub to beer mecca Horse Brass when I first came to Portland in 1994. I actually preferred it to Horse Brass and they had a fine selection of local beers as well as hand drawn cask-conditioned ales. It was about as close to being in England as you could get. Sadly, it was closed a few years ago and has been turned into a bank of all things. In an age when banks are all being conglomerated, they open a small bank and close a great old pub that should be on the National Resister of Historical Places. It's one of the cooler buildings in Portland and worth a peek at 532 SE Grand Ave in SE Portland. RIP
