Memaloose State Park offers opportunities for camping, picnicking, windsurfing, interpretive programs, viewing interpretive displays and viewing beautiful scenery and historic sites.
Memaloose State Park is a virtual oasis of beauty in the hottest part of the Columbia River Gorge. Temperatures can top 110 F on a summer day, but Memaloose always manages to provide cool comfort, lush green grass and shade thanks to the tall maples and willows that loom large in the park. The sound of pulsating sprinklers provides a melodic nighttime rhythm to the counterpoint of chirping crickets and lonesome train whistles.
On summer nights, families select prime viewing spots on the cool grass and open meadows around the campground and observe the nightly celestial performances of shooting stars, wandering satellites and far away galaxies.
Vital stats: The park is open March – November. The campground provides 43 full hookup campsites and 67 tent sites (maximum site 60 feet). The campground offers showers.
: The area receives a high amount of precipitation. Much of the precipitation comes from October to April in the form of rain at the low elevations and as wet heavy snow in the higher elevations. Although snow is possible in the lowest elevations, it is infrequent. Late spring, summer and early autumn tend to bring clear, sunny days with moderate temperatures.
Location: Memaloose State Park is located on I-84 (exit westbound only), 11 miles west of The Dalles.
