This is one of those places that I have been going to several time a year since I was a kid! Whether it's for the orchards and the u-picks, the pumpkin patch, or river lounging-- it's a special place for Portland and for me!

Beautiful island! Be prepared to buy a parking permit which you can get at the local island store or at the 7-11 you'll pass in Linton (a town on HWY 30).
