Hike & Stand Up Paddleboard Camping Trip
Towards the eastern end of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area you can experience the best of both Northwest ecosystems: arid deserts and lush forests with waterfalls! We’ll stay at a campground at Horsethief Lake (Columbia Hills Historical State Park, near Dallesport, WA), and spend time stand up paddleboarding (SUPing) and hiking nearby trails. You’ll see towering columnar basalt cliffs, striking waterfalls, and colorful wildflowers in full bloom! We’ll sleep in tents (solo or shared, depending on whether you’re in a pod) and cook meals outdoors. Read the detailed trip description to learn more.
