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 offers 10 unsheltered picnic tables and three portable toilets, but no water and no dump site. Visitors are expected to pack their garbage out with them when they leave. Tables are available first come, first served. Fires are not permitted in the park.
