Simon Benson was a lumber magnate, philanthropist, and one of the principal promoters of the Historic Columbia River Gorge Highway. Located one mile west of Multnomah Falls on I-84 at milepost 30 (eastbound access only), picnickers love this park; there's even a disc golf course and a first come first serve picnic shelter for groups.
Try your luck catching some of the thousands of rainbow trout stocked each month into the lake between March and October. This is a non-motorboat lake, (no boat launch) so it's perfect for rowboats and swimmers.
Please secure your valuable when enjoying parks. Thank you!
