Starting on April 18th: Vista House will be open from 9am – 6pm daily starting April 18th ( That includes the coffee shop and gift shop so come on in and say hello! ) Starting October 6th through November 2nd: Vista House will be open from 10am – 4pm daily. Beginning November 3rd: Vista House will be open only on Saturdays and Sundays, weather permitting. You may call the Vista House site number (503) 695-2240 on those days to check if we are open.
The winter weather in the Columbia River Gorge can be unpredictable and the weather at Crown Point even more so! The Vista House will not open if it is too windy or there is ice on the roads, and the determination whether to open will be made each Saturday and Sunday morning throughout the winter. You may call the Vista House directly at 503-695-2240 to see if it is open on any winter weekend day.
Please check this website for updates, or contact us at any time. The off-site administrative office is open year round: for more information call 503.695.2230, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Mission: Our mission is to steward, preserve and protect the historic Vista House at Crown Point State Park by developing and enhancing interpretive and educational programs that foster a better understanding of Vista House, Oregon’s pioneers, the Historic Columbia River Highway and (Columbia River) Gorge.
