This part of the Columbia River is the Wind Surfing capital of WORLD. The ...

So primitive in fact that you can often find a spot at the last minute. The BLM campground “Oasis” happened to be the first one we tried and sure 'nuf, there was a spot of dirt waiting for us right on the shore of the Deschutes river.
