Hood River is a small town swathed in natural attractions that has become one of the most popular sports destinations in recent years. Resting on the Columbia Gorge and in proximity to an abundance of parks, it’s no wonder people have come to love it so much. Don’t forget to bring your pet along to stay with you, and make sure to camp in a unique accommodation option to make your trip even better. Though a perfect place to come at any time of year, stop by in April if you want to see best views of Mount Hood and its growing tree blossoms at Blossom Festival. Cycle through Hood River Valley, cool off as you swim in the waters of Koberg Beach State Recreation Site, and feel the splash of water on your face at Wah Gwin Gwin Falls.
