Location

Stevenson, WA, United States of America

Suggested Local Attractions

Due to COVID 19 restrictions, everyone over 3 years of age is required to wear a mask in public, indoors and out. The vast majority of our wonderful trails and waterfalls are closed to the public.
The Columbia River Gorge has more waterfalls than anywhere else in the US. There are many, many hiking trails available, to see the waterfalls - from easy strolls to some that you would need technical climbing equipment. You will need your own transportation around the area - this is a rural area. We are in Skamania County, the only county I know of that has a statute prohibiting the hunting or harassment of Big Foot. Downtown Stevenson has a number of eating out choices and some nice shopping. We live in the windsailing and kiteboarding capital of the US, as I understand. Come and see for yourself!

Most generous of Hosts in a super serene location!

Thank you for such a wonderful 💓 first experience with Boondockers Welcome! Wish we had more time to get together. We appreciate your hospitality and all the information about the area. We really loved the surrounding nature and animals who visited us throughout our stay... Deer, rabbits, and birds. We wish you all the best and would love to visit next year!

WONDERFUL HOSTS & CONVENIENT LOCATION

I very much enjoyed visiting the Columbia River Gorge Away location.
The Hosts were both very accomadating to my comfort & needs including
informing me about the local easy to access public dump station.
Also, the Columbia Gorge is simply beautiful to drive through,
however, I am very glad that I did not arrive on Hwy 14 from the East.
The height of the multiple tunnels may have been a problem for my 12'4" CL.A.
Yes, I would happily return if invited back.

Peaceful stay in a wonderful location

The Columbia River Gorge Get Away is in a fantastic location to numerious attractions. There are plenty of hiking trails, breathtaking waterfalls and the wonderful town of Hood River all within a 30 minute drive. Unfortunately most trails and public parks were closed due to COVID, so we spent most of our time in the town of Hood River enjoying microbrews and walks along the river watching the kite surfers. Our hosts were very hospitable and friendly, we spent an evening chatting about camping and travel on their front porch and sharing local beers. Will definitely visit again once everything opens back up.

Quiet and restful.

Very pleasant overnight experience with this interesting couple who were very hospitable. Their property accommodated our Class B van perfectly in a beautifully wooded environment. We shared camping experiences and tips on the local attractions.

Encore Stay

Once again, big kudos to Kykate and the Smiling Bus Driver for having us right back for a quick stay to address some urgent matters. These folks love people and it truly shows trough great hospitality. We can't wait to be back in the area for another visit!

A+ is for Apple—Apple cake, apple cider, apple butter and appreciation for awesome hosts!!

Kykate and partner are uniquely kind and helpful people. Some might say, "salt of the earth." They repeatedly went out of their way to accommodate us and our large family, dog included. Great advice about enjoying the Columbia River Gorge, helpful tips for resources in town, and genuine kindness are what you can expect if you choose this location.

Our whole family was invited to a neighbor's house to press freshly harvested apples into cider! Afterwards, we not only had gallons of apple cider, but two additional friends, who live across the street. The next day we had apple cake, apple jelly, apple butter delivered to us in our RV. Wow!! Super yummy!

We also suffered a minor personal setback while staying here and they graciously allowed us to extend our stay until the problem was resolved. They really care and it shows in many ways. We are deeply grateful for our stay, and hopefully we will drop in again the next time we are in the Pacific Northwest.

Great hosts!

Kykate and her husband are interesting and welcoming hosts. We toured each other's rigs, picked and exchanged apples for pears and plugged in just long enough to brew morning coffee. Kykate is well versed in area history. It was just an overnight stop, but I hope next summer we can plan a longer stay and explore the area.

Great place to stay in the beautiful Columbia Gorge

Stevenson is a beautiful little town, on the 'quiet' (north) side of the Columbia River Gorge, just down the way from White Salmon and Hood River. It's a perfect spot if you're a kiteboarder or windsurfer, within easy reach of several launch spots. Our hosts were very kind and helpful, letting us use their electric, water and internet. Thanks so much!

Gorgeous Location!

Boondocking in the Columbia River Gorge area—anywhere you go is simply gorgeous. The location, and our host were perfect. They both are very outgoing and supplied us with mountains of information. Thank you for your hospitality!

Quiet and handy

A lovely friendly, chatty couple. They are very knowledgeable about the area. Their place is about 1 and half mile up the hill from Stevenson. Felt very safe in this quiet street. From here you have access to lots of hikes, although crossing the toll bridge in an RV cost $3 each way. Enjoy a Beer at the Walking Mans Brewery. Easy back in with our Class C 26 foot.

Great stay in the Columbia River Gorge

kykate was a wealth of knowledge about the area, and the flowers around their home are to die for!! It is a quiet, beautiful place, with so much to do in the area. She and her husband are fun to talk with, and we really had a great stay. I highly recommend their place!!

Fabulous hosts and location

We had water and electricity, peace and quiet, friendly accommodating hosts, and a close proximity to the beautiful gorge. Kate and Dennis lent us a very helpful book, shared tips on things to do and see, spent time visiting with us, and even gifted us with home made jam as we Departed. Kate gave us a tour of the property, including the beautiful Creek. They recommended the nearby Gorge Interpretive Center and it greatly exceeded our expectations, don't miss it. We loved their custom built camper, very creative and charming, would love to have one like that. Saw bunnies and plenty of birds in the yard each day. We highly recommend this boondockers option!
