Good Weather Means Good Hiking

It’s no secret that The Dalles and the Columbia Gorge as a whole is one of the most beautiful places in the Country. Fortunately, Celilo Inn is located right in the midst of all this beauty. Many of our guests love the outdoors just as much as we do and are constantly looking for new places to hike, picnic and explore. One of the places we frequently recommend is Columbia Hills State Park.

The 3,338-acre park is home to breathtaking views and wildlife as well as trails, a 7,500 foot freshwater shoreline of the Columbia River and Horsethief Lake. Guests love packing up food and heading to Columbia Hills State Park for a picnic or to spend one of our famously hot days next to the cool water of the Columbia River or Horsethief Lake. If hiking is more your style then rest assured there is plenty of that to be done at this expansive park as well.

If you’re looking to truly take in the scenery than you will definitely want to visit Columbia Hills State Park the next time you stay with us.

Adventure and Exploration at Celilo Inn

We at the Celilo Inn love our wine and we love relaxation, but every now and then we like to stretch our legs and go adventuring. Lucky for our guests, Celilo Inn is located minutes away from as much exploration as one could ever want! Taking advantage of this, Celilo Inn has created the Adventure Package.


The main adventure within the Adventure Package is a white water rafting trip down the Deschutes or White Salmon River.


Deschutes River is one of the most popular destinations for white water rafting. This is most likely due to the exquisite canyon surroundings, perpetually great weather, and consistent water flow. White water rafting on the Deschutes River is fun for all ages and all experiences levels.


White Salmon River is a favorite destination for experienced and adventurous first time white water rafters.  This rafting excursion is full of multiple rapids in quick secession, and features the exciting Husum Falls.
