Scenic beachfront with a narrow shoreline & grassy picnic lawn, popular with windsurfers & kayakers. Fun for kids with lots of activities in park.
Hood River is famous for water sports, and the event site as the name implies is where much of the action is. rentals and lessons for beginners for Windsurfing, Kite boarding Kayaking, and SUP. There are also some tasty food truck options, with live music occasionally during the summer
Ya gotta go over to Hood River’s waterfront park and event site. It’s the major launch site for the wind surfers, kite boarders and SUPs. There are some good places to eat along there (I like Solstice Pizza and Pfriem Brewery), and a small beach for swimmers.
Great easy windsurfing/SUP/kite surfing spot with easy in /eay out access. Paid parking. Rentals and classes for SUP, windsurfing, bikes and kiting are right here. While you're at it, stop in for a bite and a beer at Sandbar cafe.
Kiteboard, windsurf or spectate. Grassy area with a sandbar (be cautious around kites), picnic tables and snack bar.
