The Port of The Dalles mission is to support the creation, retention, expansion, and recruitment of businesses and jobs that will enhance the economy of the District.
The Port of The Dalles is an Oregon special district that works to create jobs and recruit businesses by developing industrial lands. The Dalles has a long history as a regional trade center and as a hub for river, rail, and road transportation. Located in the scenic Columbia River Gorge, The Dalles is an ideal location that offers both a rural setting and the convenience of modern infrastructure. Since 1933, the Port of The Dalles has been dedicated to the growth of industry and jobs in this unique region.
The Port district is approximately 425,000 square acres covering the northern third of Wasco County. Borders of the district are Deschutes River in the east, Hood River County line in the west, and Tygh Ridge in the South. Although the Port’s hub of activity is The Dalles, the Port serves the entire district and Mid-Columbia region through various economic development projects and collaborations.
In addition to the development and sale of industrial land, the Port operates The Dalles Marina including approximately 25 slips with electricity, 62 boathouses, and 12 transient pull-in slips.
