history book clipartCascade Locks is one of the oldest towns on the Columbia River. It sits on a section of the river that Lewis and Clark described in their journals as the "Great Rapids of the Columbia," a stretch of raging water that was formed by a massive ancient landslide. Cascade Locks was home to the first steam engine west of the Mississippi, the Oregon Pony, built in 1862 to carry passengers and freight past the rapids. In 1880 the U.S. Government began work on the navigation locks to provide safe passage around the rapids. The locks were completed in 1896. The completion of Bonneville Dam in 1938 tamed the great rapids forever, and there was no longer any need to stop at Cascade Locks. But the town thrived on lumber mills and timber stands until the 1980's. Today Cascade Locks is a destination for world-class recreation opportunities in a a breathtaking natural environment.

Just outside of the campground, the two RV Gypsies saw two deer in a neighborhood yard.
