Campgrounds -- Area campgrounds include Toll Bridge Park, on Ore. 35, 17 miles south of town, and Tucker Park, on Tucker Road (Ore. 281), just a few miles south of town. Both of these county parks are on the banks of the Hood River. Farther south, you'll find the Sherwood Campground, a national-forest campground also on the banks of the Hood River. (This campground is favored by mountain bikers.) Eight miles west of Hood River off I-84 is Viento State Park, which gets quite a bit of traffic noise both from the interstate and from the adjacent railroad tracks. Eleven miles east of town, you'll find Memaloose State Park, which has the same noise problems. These two state parks are popular with windsurfers.
