Fishing in the Columbia River most commonly yields sturgeons and walleyes. Nearby Lake Celilo contains walleye and also offers the opportunity for many other activities, including picnicking, boat launch and morring, camping, swimming, water skiing, sail boarding, hiking and wildlife observation.

Since 2003 people have been traveling to play 18 holes at The Dalles Tree Top disc golf course at the 15-acred Sorosis Park. Featuring tall pines, firs and oaks, the well-maintained course has a challenging and appealing layout.

If discs aren't your cup of tea, there is a traditional golf course in the Dalles as well. Lakes and rock features surround this nine-hole private course.

For an in-town experience, there is a walking tour of the historical commercial district downtown. As an ending point of The Oregon Trail, the town teems with tales of the pioneer days.

Activities for rainy days include a trip to the Fort Dalles Museum or Columbia Gorge Discovery Center.
