Heritage Landing Boat Ramp – 17/198

Oregon State Park #17 of 198!

Even though we had camped just across the river from this State Park, we missed it on our first trip through The Dalles, OR. On my second trip, I had to stop in and explore this State Park. This State Park isn’t a park in the traditional sense. It’s a boat ramp and parking area. If you have a boat and want to go fishing or relax on the water for the day, you could start here at the landing. It’s located at the intersection of the Deschutes River and the Columbia River, so you’d have access to both rivers. Just across the river in the Deschutes River State Recreation Area that we camped at a few months ago.

Are you interested in a place to easily access both the Deschutes and the Columbia Rivers?? Watch the video below for more information about this State Park.

Our Story:

I’m an adventurous soul who feels most at home surrounded by trails, trees, and water. Hiking is my peace and meditation, and I am so glad to be sharing this with the whole family. In Spring of 2022, our family took a weekend trip to the Oregon Coast and it was just as I remembered it when I was young. Breathtaking beauty, misty rain, and vast greenery. We visited several locations down the central coast that weekend and I craved more. We passed so many State Parks that looked intriguing, but I knew nothing about them, so I bought a book about the Oregon State Parks for future trip planning. When I was reading the book I realized… I want to see then ALL! So the family decided to embark on the adventure of visiting every State Park in Oregon (and hopefully moving on to Washington after).
