Just outside our doors, set on the Columbia River, is the five-acre day-use Marine Park. A playground, picnic area, and scenic walking/bicycle path provide instant outdoor entertainment. It doesn’t get any more local than that!
Adjacent to the park and McMenamins is a collection of totem poles crafted by local Native American Don Lelooska, Take a moment to visit these poles, which tell stories of Northwest Coast Native Americans, as seen in the mythical forms, symbols and creatures. The tallest of these, at 140 feet, is the largest one-piece totem pole in the world. In September 2018, it was lowered for repairs – the up-side being that now is your chance to see the top up close!
Further along the path is Rasmussen Day Use Park, with covered picnic shelters, sand volleyball courts, horseshoes, and combined tennis and basketball courts. Pass these on your way to our Ahles Point Cabin, a cozy small bar with a fireplace and river-view patio!
