Nestled in the awe-inspiring Columbia River Gorge, Ainsworth is equal parts waterfall wonderland, hiker’s playground and camper’s delight.
Situated at the eastern end of Historic Highway 30, from Ainsworth to Crown Point to the west, you’ll find the world’s greatest concentration of high waterfalls (like Multnomah Falls).
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. Hiking is definitely something you’ll want to do while camping at Ainsworth State Park.
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.
