“Real local's favourite - park your car and then walk through the woods to the beaches at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers. Nice view of Mt Hood on a clear day.”

Park
“This park is great for jogging, picnics, and lounging on the beach. Located right on the Columbia River, you can see Sauvie Island, OR, right across the way, and maybe even see a fisherman or two catch a salmon or steelhead. There is a lot of wildlife here, from blue herons to snakes, rabbits, and even a coyote! People ride their horses out there, so that can be a delight, too. There is a 5 mile trail that connects Frenchman's to Vancouver Lake, so joggers always take advantage of that. There is a $3 parking fee, but the pass is good all day and can be used at the other county parks (Klineline Pond/Salmon Creek Park, Vancouver Lake, and Lewisville Park). ”

Nudist Beach
“Nude beach - there are more conservative beaches before you hit this one (if you prefer). You'll see parking for these along the way. Be sure to stop at the general store after you cross the bridge onto Sauvie to get a parking pass, I think they're $5. ”
