Bingen is a gateway for many recreational activities including windsurfing, skiing, snowmobiling, kayaking, hiking, horseback trail riding, mountain biking, and fishing and hunting in the spectacular Columbia River Gorge Scenic Area. When you are done playing you can come for a great meal and wonderful glass of wine or beer at one of our local restaurants or wineries.
The City of Bingen is located in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge. Only 60 miles east of Portland, Oregon, the town site was platted in 1892 by Theodor Suksdorf who name the town after Bingen-on-the-Rhine, Germany. The city was incorporated in 1924. Three of the area’s largest employers, SDS Lumber Company, Underwood Fruit and Insitu (an aerospace company) are located in Bingen.
Bingen is located on State Route 14 with one of only two Amtrak stops between Vancouver and Pasco, Washington. The Columbia River is accessed in Bingen through the Port of Klickitat at Bingen Point.
