It's a must see in Portland. There are many attractions in the Park, and the terrain is so varied. The light rail will take you right to the Park

The park and campsite is beautiful. The rates for the sites are reasonable. $10/night for the no-hook-up tent sites. At night you can hear the waves hitting the shores in your tent. Family friendly and pet friendly.

P.S. The walk from the parking area to the top @ the Japanese Garden is steep. If your children are small-young or you have a stroller, suggest you use the shuttle, which is well scheduled.
