Only $5 to get in and it is a great stop if you are traveling that way. Clean bathrooms, plenty of parking, a few state park signs to give you just enough background. It is right on the river so you can get your feet wet and have a nice picnic. I could imagine Lewis and Clark making their way down the river and stopping at this exact spot to camp.

You'll have to pay a small fee to park here, but there are plenty of spaces to do so, on a lovely stretch of sandy beach along the Columbia River. There are picnic tables on the grassy areas closest to the parking lot, and you have to hike about a mile to get to the beach, but it's worth it. River current is very mild, and a small island separates the waterway from boats, so it's easy and calm to take a dip in the water (which is also rather shallow, so it also feels safe for amateur swimmers). One area of the beach is marked as a clothing optional area (recognized and patrolled by the American Association for Nude Recreation), and some people exercise that option. The gay area is farther east, but there are families and people of all shapes, sizes, colors, and persuasions all there to enjoy being out in nature, so bring along a cooler, some towels, and plenty of SPF sunblock and enjoy a few hours away from the city!

The last Saturday in June, there was a car show, a bike riding class, a nude beach clean-up and more! They even have monthly summer Star Parties after dark with the Rose City Astronomers and Oregon Museum of Science and Industry co-hosting.

There are plenty of trails and lots of beach.

You can buy a daily parks pass for $5, a yearly one for entrance to all Oregon day fee parks, or Oregon 40% disabled vets can get one free from the state.

Soft sandy beaches. Plenty of available shade. Multiple 'hideaways' ;-) wink wink
You can literally walk halfway across the Columbia River before wetting your chest. Trust me, I just did it yesterday, 6-15-15. Couples, singles, groups, families, all genders are welcome. State park so please keep your unnatural drugs, cigarettes, glass, etc off the beach.

Rooster Rock State Park is one of the most scenic and beautiful parks I have ever visited. Located about 15 miles East of Portland on the beautiful Columbia Gorge River it welcomes, wind surfers, wind kiters, hikers, boaters, swimmers, picnic folks and nudists.

Rooster Rock is one of only two legally sanctioned clothing optional areas in Oregon. The American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) has officially adopted this park through the State Adopt-A-Park program. Since 2002 AANR and the park staff have worked together to create a family friendly non-sexual clothing optional recreational area of the park.

Sand dunes to climb, trails to hike and all au natural make for a great visit.
