“Beautiful view point at the Vista House”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

We were driving the Historic Columbia River Highway which is beautiful in it's self, and stopped to take in the view of the River Gorge from the Vista House at Crown Point State Park. The views are lovely, and the house is an added little attraction with an upper level for more viewing and there is a gift shop in the basement. The mail level has an information desk.

“Beautiful views and great drive along the gorge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

We were so happy that we decided to get off the big main road and drive on the smaller and more scenic route (E Historic Columbia River Highway) - which also took us to this viewpoint.

“The view is everything”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

It was very hot and crowded, but the views are amazing. We had traveled the "wrong way" down Route 30, starting at Hood River, so did not need the travel info. We lingered near the info. desk but neither of the staff asked if they could help. That is the first time in ten days we found Oregonians to be less than helpful. Took a few pictures and left quickly.

“I could see for miles and miless”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

This site is amazing and a must for those who love scenic views. It's windy because it is up on a cliff, but that's part of what makes it exciting. If you have a couple of quarters, you can pop them into the viewing binoculars they have stationed around the point. This allows you to see even more details of the magnificent gorge.
Crown Point is the home of the Vista House, which is a small museum-like visitors center with a gift shop. Unfortunately, we showed up after hours and were unable to go in.

“A view and local knowledge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

The building is impressive and there are murals on the lower level that describe it" construction, along with a gift shop and snack area. There is an balcony/walkway with a 360 view. Outside you can walk around the large space and take pictures up and down the Columbia. Get you maps and information regarding the waterfall over the next 7 miles. Go on a clear day if possible.
