About the Park and Creek
Riverside County Park is a large urban park with two baseball diamonds and a boat ramp as well as river beach. The park is open daily, sunrise to sunset, and features a picnic shelter, picnic tables, restrooms, and walking trails.
The Clackamas River, convenient to Portland, boasts breathtaking mountain views, colorful native wildflowers and wildlife, as well as access for fishing, boating and hiking. This river is home to the last significant run of wild late-winter coho salmon in the Columbia Basin, which generally spawn on the main stem of the Clackamas above the North Fork Reservoir. The watershed also has one of only two remaining runs of spring chinook in the Willamette basin and supports a significant population of winter steelhead, cutthroat trout and native lamprey.
