Fruit Loop, Hood River, OR: Camping & Wine Tasting

Tollbridge County Park is a nice country park with full, partial and tent only sites. They also have group sites. Reservations can be made via email (their preferred way). It’s located in Hood River County, south of Hood River, OR right off Hwy 35 (along the Fruit Loop), next to the East Fork of Hood River where you can catch and release. We would definitely camp here again.

The Fruit Loop offers a variety of fresh, seasonal fruit. We love to visit during the various fruit harvest seasons. While in the area we picked up some fresh cherries and visited two of our favorite wineries located on the Hood River Fruit Loop.

Our first stop: Marchesi’s Vineyards. Their Italian style wine and Tasting Room atmosphere are hard to beat. Relax as they serve you your tasting while seated on their outside patio situated next to their vineyard. Wine Club members enjoy a complimentary cutting board of bread, cheese and sausage with their free wine tasting and 20% off their purchase.

Our second stop: Pheasant Valley Vineyard. This picturesque vineyard is situated with a view of Mt. Hood. They offer a wide variety of wines, including organic wine. Club members enjoy 20% off their wine purchases and free wine tastings.

We like to try different places to eat while out and about. That said, we tried Saw Tooth Roadhouse on Hwy 35, just north of the RV park. I have to say, this rural restaurant serves an amazing pulled pork sandwich with cold slaw. Jon enjoyed their meatloaf sandwich.
