Long Description:
This complex of motel rooms, cabins & a RV Park is located on Wa Na Pa street in Cascade Locks, Oregon, USA.

Nestled below the Cascade Mountains and a block from the Columbia River, this rustic, log cabin-style motel with adjacent cabins is 0.7 miles from the Bridge of the Gods and 4.9 miles from Table Mountain.

Pared-down accommodations range from modest motel rooms to cozy, free-standing cabins. All feature free WiFi and cable TV, and some rooms and all cabins add kitchenettes and whirlpool tubs. Cabins also offer flat-screen TVs.

There's also an on-site RV park.

Located some 40 miles east from Portland (Highway 84), Cascade Locks is a city in Hood River County, Oregon, United States. The city took its name from a set of locks built to improve navigation past the Cascades Rapids of the Columbia River. The U.S. federal government approved the plan for the locks in 1875, construction began in 1878, and the locks were completed on November 5, 1896. The locks were subsequently submerged in 1938, replaced by Bonneville Lock and Dam, although the city lost no land from the expansion of Lake Bonneville behind the dam some 4 miles downstream of the city. The city population was 1,144 at the 2010 census. The 2007 estimate is 1,075 residents.

Cascade Locks is just upstream from the Bridge of the Gods, a toll bridge that spans the Columbia River. It is the only bridge across the Columbia between Portland and Hood River. Cascade Locks is also a few miles upstream of Eagle Creek Gorge, a popular scenic area that doubles as an alternate route for the Pacific Crest Trail. Cascade Locks is used frequently by hikers along the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) to cross the Columbia River. Cascade Locks is the lowest point along the trail, which runs from the Mexican border in California to the Canadian border in Washington.
