Cascade Locks was originally called Whiskey Flats. Home to more than 100 bars, saloons and bordellos at one point, the town’s name was changed before the locks were built in the late 1800s to accommodate steamboat travel (and races) up the Columbia to the inland empire. The local Sternwheeler Days celebrate this the second week of each July. Today the town is working to revitalize itself through tourism, boasting both history and some of the best windsurfing breezes on Earth. The Oregon Pony, the first railroad around the treacherous rapids, is exibited in the historic park next to the local museum. Visitors can imagine how life was back then as they watch local Indians dip-net salmon, and listen to their stories and way of life at the Festival of Nations celebrating their rich heritage on the Columbia.<\/p>","post_name":"cascade-locks","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.6707","lng":"-121.888","distance":"5.2","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/geotourism-sustainable-travel\/oregon-adventurecation\/cascade-locks\/","terms":"a Sustainable Travel<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"1661943","post_title":"City of Cascade Locks Public Parking Lot: Electric Vehicle Fast Charging Station","post_content":"","post_name":"city-of-cascade-locks-public-parking-lot-electric-vehicle-fast-charging-station","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"45.6707","lng":"-121.888","distance":"5.2","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/geotourism-sustainable-travel\/city-of-cascade-locks-public-parking-lot-electric-vehicle-fast-charging-station\/","terms":"a Sustainable Travel<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"5415","post_title":"Ainsworth State Park","post_content":"Ainsworth State Park offers opportunities for camping, hiking, picnicking, viewing scenery, viewing wildlife, and attending interpretive programs.

Hiking is definitely something you'll want to do while camping at Ainsworth State Park. By leaving the park on Nesmith Point trail, you'll end up with a splendid view of St. Peter's Dome, a majestic basalt monolith rising 2,000 feet above the mighty Columbia River.

Back at the campground, you'll find 45 peaceful full-service campsites canopied in a laid-back, tree-filled setting. There are also four walk-in tent sites for a more primitive camping experience. This is a classic campground ... the smell of a campfire is your constant companion. Flush toilets, showers, a camp host, firewood and an amphitheater with interpretive programs are all here. Top it off with a roaring creek at the east end of the park, and you have all the makings for a great camping trip.
