Mayer State Park

  Emergency Closure 05/08/17
Highway 30, 7 miles east of Mosier, 1/2 mile past the Rowena Crest Overlook is CLOSED due to a rock slide. This section of Highway 30 is closed to all forms of traffic, including bikes. The overlook area is OPEN to traffic from the west end. The preliminary estimate for completing all the repair work is 2 – 3 weeks. After further investigation from our ODOT geologist, the slide area is very unstable and will take a combination of rock scaling and rock bolting to make the area safe for public use. Please check www.tripcheck.org or contact your local ODOT office for additional information.

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.  Thank you!
