Well, yesterday, I walked from the water up to the gorge/camping cirle of land, but it is fenced. If you can get out around the property either the backside or the Cave B winery side, the water is accessible within a nice 3 mile hike down. Just an FYI If you look on google maps, its even labeled The Gorge Amphitheater Trail
I was looking at the overhead satellite the other day because I am doing only Sasquatch related things at work and it shows something called the "Gorge Amphitheater Trail" that's below the stage. Makes me curious!
You can take that trail all the way to Crescent bar if you go right and Sunland if you go left. Only a store in Sunland, Crescent Bar has store, bar, pizza joint, ice cream store and a java hut... Maybe 7 miles round trip?
Not really man, Im just one of you, actually from Cali, but happen to be living up here next to the Gorge, so I thought I would offer... Seemed silly not to. But again, no worries, I was just putting it out there, possinly thinking it could lead me to a ticket to enjoy the festivities. I mean, I can ride my bike there, and will be anyway to check out things but thought I could help some peeps....
haha Drew, I was thinking the same thing, but whatever, cant force a good thing on people, as sometimes it does seem to good to be true. Actually, believe it or not, the master bedroom is empty with its own shower...haha
Do you guarantee to not rape and murder your new friends?
Um, haha, Im good peeps for one ;D, two, Im a HUGE believer in KARMA ;), and 3, I have 2 beautiful dogs that would have no one to take care of them if I went to jail, so I would never do anything to put me there :D...Haha I could even send a picture of myself to put your mind at ease. As far as a swimming hole, you can make it down to the water by going to the Cave B Winery, and then just taking the hiking trail to the water, it is a bit of a walk although...

Oh, also, if you use Google maps right now, they recorded this area last year over the Memorial day weekend, so if you zoom in, you will see the Gorge camping lot PACKED with peeps and the cars and such. But then, while there, move over across the river and see the boat madness Im speaking of Holiday is huge here

Directly across from the river from the Gorge is a cove called "sand bar", which the boats line up like Lake Havasu in Arizona 4 deep to the shore. All the woman wearing titty tassles and everything. Crazy fun

If you do get your car out, head down Silica Road about 4 miles to the road before the BIG S turn to the freeway on-ramp, its called "Old Vantage Road". Take that road down a mile if you like to rock climb, the area is called Feathers, and about 3 if you want one of the most beautiful settings along the Columbia River to wash up for the night. Even a CO beach if interested. Park in the lot and walk up the trail about 4 football fields. Very pretty area for sure Your welcome..
