Kiteboarding and windsurfing activities dominate the Event Site, the Spit/Sandbar, and the Hook areas, located east of the Hood River, which can be accessed from Exit 63. These sites offer public access for activities as well as instruction in the watersports. Need a lesson? Authorized kiteboarding and windsurfing schools also operate in this area.
WINDY, Clean, safe, and dog friendly.
Parking a little expensive, but if you are in town to kite, sup or windsurf this is an awesome spot to rig up and launch.
I love to run here and do it often! Love seeing the “kites”! All different colors! The Trainer (RN)* Personal Trainer, “One On One Only”
If you like cold and windy...
This place became unpleasant after about 15-20 minutes as it is very windy and can get quite cold because of this. Even on days that are over 90 degrees the wind can really chapped Your Hide. Unless you are going there to kite Sail or windsurf I wouldn't spend more than 10-15 minutes this place
Great place to people watch and grab a bite at The Sandbar!!
People, dogs, windsurfers, kite boarders, paddle boarders, you name it! Enjoy a delicious lunch/dinner at the Sandbar, HIGHLY recommended!! Tell them Natasha sent you :)
Great Place to Play in Hood River
The Hood River Event site is great for dogs, a swim, water sports, yoga and a casual lunch in the shade. There is a large sandbank and a smaller sandy area to enter the water at the main site. A bit down the trail there is an area for kids to play, swim and eat. The rest of the waterline is a bit rocky. Overall, the event site offers adventure and a chance to explore health, happiness and a humble perspective. Enjoy!
