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.
