Our Location:


Columbia City is located in northwestern Oregon on the banks of the Columbia River approximately 31 miles north of the City of Portland on Highway 30, 2 miles north of the City of St. Helens and 61 miles east of the Pacific Ocean.


The city is dominated, ecologically and visually, by the Columbia River, which is nearly a mile wide here. Fir-clad slopes provide a backdrop west of town. Across the river are the foothills of the Cascade Range. Five snow-covered peaks are visible from the city: Mount St. Helens, Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood, Mt. Rainier and Mt. Jefferson.
