Beautiful but pricey! I think it was about $18/person. All the waterfall hikes we were going to fill our day with were closed, so I’m glad we had this as a backup plan. Totally worth seeing, but the prices were double what we were expecting so I thought I’d add the prices in here.

Absolutely worth going here!! Breathtaking and calm. Didn’t realize they opened two hours later on Mondays, but thankfully the rose gardens just below the tennis courts kept us busy and gave us a beautiful place to stall and eat lunch and wander while waiting for the Japanese Garden to open.

Not sure how to check before you try and go, but we were so looking forward to seeing this but the road to get there was closed when we went and we didn’t have time to try and hike in from our campground. Total bummer!

Wish we would have read the review about the trains rumbling through the campground before we stayed here! Echo the sentiment about it being beautiful, but those trains were loud and woke me up all night!

Totally cool place to pull over and see. We were on the Oregon side of the river and decided to pop over the bridge and add it to our road tripping. It was a beautiful view and a wonderful tribute to those who sacrificed their lives for world peace!!

Couldn’t ever find the marker but the gorge is breathtaking. Want to kayak under the bridge next time. Recommend parking in the parking lot of businesses instead of where the Road Trippers map room us to. We had to walk and weren’t allowed to park in the neighborhood.

So beautiful anytime, but truly IMPRESSIVE when there is more water!! Been there twice and this time was breathtaking because there was more water!!

We have stayed at the Out ‘n’ About Treesort three times and absolutely LOVE it!! We always do the zip lining and have tried both courses. They are really fun. Our kids (ages 5-18) all say it’s the best part!! We also love the Tarzan Swing, which you can add to the end of your zip line tour. It’s a one-time adventure for us adults that found ourselves looking for our stomachs for a few hours afterward, but the kids look forward to it year after year. The swimming hole is cold, but wonderful after you adjust to the temperature. We love the swing in the woods by the self-zip line that’s small. Just so many ways to enjoy yourself there. We’ve done the Swiss Family treehouse twice, which is super fun with kids. The rope swing there fills hours of fun! We also tried the Suite this last time and appreciated the bathroom inside and the personal bbq on the deck. Usually we love the community feel to sharing the bbq’s and fire pits, but liked that we had a choice this time due to Covid. Would recommend booking at least 9 months ahead. We got lucky this time and found one last treehouse a month out, but that was courtesy of Covid I think. If you want choices, think ahead. Love the breakfasts too!!

SO MUCH FUN!! Loved seeing the bald eagles, hawks, river otters, seals, beautiful scenery, and especially all the fun boat spins they did!! Definitely recommend. We did the shortest & calmest tour. Will try the more white water tour next time... Just weren’t sure whether the little kids would like it this time.

We only stayed one night and arrived after dark. Beautiful campsite, very clean and wonderful bathrooms. Our campsite was right by Highway 101, so we could hear traffic, but thankfully it wasn’t much during the night. Nice and warm at night, tucked in away from the ocean breezes.
