Government Island

Government Island, located just beyond the I-205 bridge, is a popular destination for most Portland area boaters. From St. Helens Marina it’s an all-day trip for our sailboat, and requires one or two bridge openings. But it’s definitely worth it, especially if the weather is good. To the east there are views of Mount Hood, to the west, views of the I-205 bridge, and always interesting traffic passing by on the river. There are two big docks — the East dock is the newest. On shore, some interesting walks are available, although most of the island is a wildlife refuge.
I’ve uploaded some pictures from an October 2013 trip when the sunshine was warm and inviting.
