Memaloose overlooks the Columbia River but there is no legal or safe access to the river from the campground due to an active Union Pacific Railroad line. It is considered trespassing to travel along or cross over UPRR property. Several legal and safe river access options exist within a 5-15 minute drive from the campground at designated state, city and county properties. All camp sites are furnished with picnic tables and fire rings with cooking grate. Flush toilets and hot showers are available. Showers are free to registered campground visitors. Non-registered visitors may shower for $2.00. Dump station on site. During hot, dry and high fire danger season, campfires or outside cooking may be banned or limited. Interpretive progams and JR. Ranger activities available Memorial Day to Labor Day. See park hosts. Firewood and Ice available for purchase from park hosts. MAKE SURE YOUR SITE MEETS YOUR CAMPING NEEDS Before reserving, please become familiar with the particulars of your chosen site, including the size of the tent pad area and the type of equipment that you may bring to the park. Site details and tent pad sizes can be viewed online by clicking on the site name. Only one vehicle is included with standard camp fees. A second vehicle kept at a campsite (or alternate parking area) is subject to a nightly Extra Vehicle fee. The nightly Extra Vehicle fee is currently $7.00. Please note: The maximum stay in Oregon State Parks is 14 nights. OPRD established a reservation procedure through the Oregon Administrative Rules (OARs) to manage occupancy and access to popular campsites, group facilities and alternative camping facilities such as yurts and cabins which states: the maximum time allowed within any Oregon State Park is 14 nights within any 17 night period. The site must be physically occupied each night for the remainder of the reservation stay. OAR 736-0100050 section 2 states: A person must comply with seasons, overnight length of stay and camper checkout times. The reason for implementing the policy and rule listed above are to provide everyone the opportunity to utilize popular camping locations at all Oregon State Parks and to not allow individual(s) to set up occupancy for periods of time exceeding two weeks.
