If you need an open invitation to go explore a peaceful tree-lined lake in the summertime, consider yourself invited. Go see west Mayer State Park from the top of Rowena Crest and soak in a view of the most beautiful lake around. Both are actually within Mayer State Park, but few people know that.


From the top of Rowena Crest, Mayer can be fully appreciated for its many amenities, including swimming, boating, fishing and picnicking. When the spring wildflowers are in bloom, this is one of the most stunning vistas in the Columbia River Gorge. The timing of the bloom varies, but is normally in March/April.

Please secure your valuable when enjoying parks.
