Enjoying leisure time

Grist Mill
Grist Mill, north Clark County

Situated along the mighty Columbia River, with the majestic Cascade Mountains for a backdrop, Clark County offers a mix of urban areas, historic landmarks, rural farmlands, and forests that everyone can enjoy.

The county has abundant urban and rural parks and natural areas for outdoor activities. There are more than 40 miles of river frontage available along the Columbia, and recreational opportunities are numerous.

The county is also rich in history, beginning with Fort Vancouver and Officers’ Row. There are many historic sites throughout the county, along with museums and community events, such as the Clark County Fair and Fourth of July Festival. Additionally, there are a number of community churches, social, and fraternal organizations available. The metropolitan amenities of Portland are just minutes away, across the Columbia River.
