This a Columbia Gorge highlight to which we always take visitors. Best parts are architecture, history and, of course the view. But I want to especially point out the coffee shop; it has the best mocha that I have found in the Portland area.

Use Sasquatch Shuttle’s parking lot and hop-on/hop-off service so you can relax and don’t have to fight for parking! This is one of their stops. I never would have known about it if not for the shuttle service!
It’s worth it to see the views and do a quick self guided tour of the remarkable historical building.

This attraction is right on the scenic highway, and is reached by a steady uphill climb. The reward is a beautiful view of the Columbia River valley. Worth a stop.

The view is stupendous, the building interesting, and the parking horrid. To see all the main points along the gorge you really need to go via a guided tour bus that has preferred parking.

The docents were informative and funny. The building was well maintained. Glad we find a spot to park.

First stop on a self guided day trip through the Columbia River Gorge loop with my wife. Totally fogged in when we arrived, but we enjoyed talking to the staff at the Vista House, meeting other travelers who had trip suggestions, touring the little museum and gift shop, and relaxing with a latte. By the time we were ready to move on, the fog lifted and we were treated to a sunny day with a gorgeous view of the Columbia. Highly recommend.

We went to several places along route 30 to see the waterfalls and the gorge area. We stopped at Crown Point/Vista House for the view of the Columbia River area. The surroundings are wonderful. Route 30 got very congested around Multnomah Falls due to very inconsiderate people who clogged route 30 waiting for a parking spot to open.

This is a lovely park with wonderful views of the Columbia river. This is well worth a visit if you are in the area and are vitiating the attractions along state highway 30.

It took us about 30 minutes to drive from Portland to Crown Point on a Saturday morning before visiting Multnomah Falls afterwards. It was definitely worth visiting for the scenic view of the Columbia River Gorge. Be sure to go inside Vista House to see displays featuring the history of the Columbia River Gorge.

There was no admission charge to enter Vista House and parking was free. There is a gift shop and a coffee bar inside Vista House.

Brought my family who was visiting from London. And to use their words (as I did in my Falls review) they were Gobsmacked! They were at a loss for words! Loved the gift shop so they could take some treasures home! If possible go on a clear day for maximum beauty.

This State Park along the Columbia River is spectacular to drive through! We visited the Vista House which was closed due to wind conditions, but the views just driving along were so pretty!!!
