Yes, it is possible to “get away from it all” in a big city. Government Island State Recreation Area is proof--this popular camping and fishing spot is (almost) literally a stone’s throw from away from Portland. Situated in the middle of the Columbia River, the island is accessible only by boat, which translates to less crowds and more communing-with-nature opportunities. Camping on the banks of the island won’t cost you a penny, but you will have to use outhouse-style composting restrooms. Trust us, it’s a fair tradeoff. Motor around the island to spot river otters and wading shore birds, and see if you can catch some sizeable salmon. Getting away from it all has never been so good.
