Rooster Rock State Park

Located at Exit 25 from I-84 east of Portland, Rooster Rock is named for an unusual rock formation. The park is specially noted for its three-mile sandy beach on the Columbia River. Visitors will find one of Oregon's two designated nude beaches at the park.

The Lewis and Clark Expedition camped near here on November 2, 1805, on their journey to the Pacific Ocean.

Rooster Rock State Park features covered picnic shelters, a boat ramp, and a 2-mile Volkswalk trail. The park is also a winter windsurfers paradise.

Quality experiences await visitors to more than 200 state parks managed for the public by the Oregon State Parks.
