Two states, six counties, unlimited possibilities.

The Columbia River Gorge Visitors Association (CRGVA) was created in 1990 to provide Gorge-wide promotion to the tourism industry. CRGVA is comprised of community organizations, businesses, local governments and individuals. Managed by a Board of 12 members representing each county, our goal is to be the most comprehensive course for planning a trip to the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area for leisure travelers, business professionals and tour groups. CRGVA is dedicated to representing the Gorge as a premier destination on a local, national and international level. By bringing two states and six counties together, we are seeking a better community for businesses and individuals who thrive through the visitor industry.

We are stronger together.
