Barton Park

Reviewed By RachelleLay

We have lived close to Barton Park or 5 years and have loved being so close to its fun and beauty. It has access directly to the Clackamas River with a boat launch. There are hundreds of trees to provide a cool place to picnic and play. Beware of the playground equipment on the lower part, it definitely can use a major safety facelift. The upper side has two separate areas for overnight camping. Our church has rented out units every year for a church Campout and it always has peaceful neighbors and clean bathroom facilities. The best part of camping there is The Barton Mercantile is a minute away with Gas, groceries and the best deli around.
I'd give it 5 stars but they need to do something about their playground equipment!

Columbia River Highway

A historical highway built as the first paved road in the Northwestern portion of Oregon.

Reviewed By roxyrue1 - Troutdale, Oregon

This is a sight not to be missed when visiting Oregon. Especially at Sunset. I live close and feel blessed to have such a wonderful getaway. It is on the Old Columbia River Hwy which leads to another steller sight, Multnomah Falls. Be advised that unfortunately due to a large fall forest fire the sight is closed at least until spring due to dangerous rock slides. So if you are planning a summer trip hopefully things will open up. It's a one of a kind scenic view of the mighty Columbia River Gorge with some great history.

Jonsrud Viewpoint

Reviewed By NYCRotaryRocket - New York City, New York

Parking lot is small but when we came here on a Monday morning at 10ish, we had it all to ourselves. There is a free telescope so you can see a lot. Mid-day will prob be the best time to stop here. There are other better views so if you're pressed for time, skip this one. The view is pretty nonetheless.

Gresham Japanese Garden

Reviewed By RSNN - Portland, Oregon

I was expected something a bit larger. So I was totally surprise to cross the bridge into the Japanese Garden to find that there wasn't that mush further for me to walk before I had pretty much seen it all. Nice to see what it is. And that it is free to the public to enjoy.
But not for me.

Philip Foster Farm

Philip Foster's Farm was a welcome sight to travelers on the Barlow Road, finally reaching civilization after 6 months on the Oregon Trail. Today it connects visitors to that era and the many families whose lives were changed by emigration to Oregon, through original and reproduction buildings and hands-on activities for all ages.

Reviewed By schoong324 - OREGON

Wonderful preserved house and farm from pioneer days. This was the rest stop for people coming across the Oregon Trail before they journeyed a little father to Oregon City. An original wagon from the Trail, all sorts of kitchen wares, furniture, beds, farm equipment, and much,much more. This is a real step back in time.

This site is great for pictures. Overlooks the Columbia River and Valley. The road to get to this overlook is beautiful, and goes right by Tad’s Chicken and Dumplings, which is a must stop. The road to. Mulhollan Fall was closed past the overlook on 10/28/17, due to the wildfires.

Lovely location, excellent prices and great selection of fruits and veggies. And in October, a horse-drawn wagon takes you out to the pumpkin patch. Everyone is so friendly, prices are reasonable, and everything is extremely fresh and yummy.

Oxbow Park is beautiful just for a drive and quiet stop to enjoy the river, deer, squirrels, birds. I have enjoyed many picnics over the years. There is something for everyone. Camping, horseshoes, swimming, fishing, boat ramp, covered picnic areas, playground, softball field, you name it.

Sandy Historical Museum

Reviewed By Luke T

My wife and I stopped for a restroom break and decided to check out this little museum and visitors center. It's small but worth it. Fascination history of the local area. The gal at the front desk was also full of local knowledge and recommended some great hikes we went on in the area. Great stop for history and local knowledge.

Liepold Farms

Reviewed By Chowa-Rides-Again - Bend, Oregon

We stopped by this weekend and enjoyed their pumpkin patch. They had apples, gords, white pumpkins and some interesting squash. Large but not huge selection of pumpkins, but they did have some very large pumpkins. It's the valley, so come prepared for rain and mud...most people were properly dressed and had no problem walking around the farm. We bought a large bag of apples for just $5 and the prices on pumpkins and gords were ok, not the cheapest, but cheaper than stores in town.
