This 3,637-acre park is composed of four different sites that offer a range of experiences. Horsethief Lake caters to campers and water-lovers. A group of significant Native American pictographs and petroglyphs are located in this area of the park, including the world-famous Tsagaglalal, (She Who Watches) which can be viewed by reservation. Horsethief Butte is a short hike to sweeping views of the Columbia River and Mount Hood. To the north, the Crawford Oaks Trailhead offers access to miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails that crisscross the Columbia Hills with astounding views of Mount Adams, Mount Hood and the Columbia River Gorge. In the springtime, the hills are covered in places with colorful wildflowers, especially arrowleaf balsamroot and lupine. And the Dalles Mountain Ranch Area, a historic homestead ranch, features several historic buildings and farm equipment displays.
