Doug’s Beach State Park is a 400-acre, undeveloped day-use park on the Columbia River. This is one of the premier windsurfing sites in the Columbia Gorge and is rated for advanced sailors. Parking is along the south side of SR 14. There is a pedestrian walkway behind the vehicle-parking area, fenced from passing trains. Visitors access the beach down a paved path with railroad-crossing arms and signals. The park acquired its name from a windsurfer who used to frequent the beach when the sport was in its infancy. “Doug” still lives in the Gorge and owns a business in Hood River, Oregon.
