Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area Management Plan:
(excerpted verbatim from the Recreation Development Plan, Part III-Action Program; dated September, 1992)

Development Proposal: It is proposed that this site be developed to provide overnight camping, day-use parking, picnicking, and some limited interpretive facilities. These areas, particularly camping and parking areas, are intended to support the existing river access recreation on adjacent park lands and reduce overuse and potential impacts from such overuse.

Design and location of such facilities should be based on the results of the compatibility studies and should focus on areas with the fewest resource constraints. Development should focus near the property's edges, retaining the central portion of the site in an open, undeveloped character to preserve views of the river through the site from the Historic Highway and Interstate 84. It is recommended that some additional archeological surveys be conducted to evaluate the potential significance of cultural resources on the site and develop appropriate avoidance and/or mitigation measures. These recommendations should be implemented by the Oregon Department of Parks and Recreation.
