Scappoose is a cozy little town with some beautiful roads to drive down! Great restaurants around, a view of mount hood, and many different public events make this town a nice area to be in. It's also only a short drive of about thirty minutes to get to any major cities, such as Portland or Hillsboro.

It is a small rural town and there is not much in the town. The biggest thing to happen to that town is its world record for a candle, having a Goodwill, and getting a Fred Meyers. It is mainly a farming community and a close group of individuals. Not everyone is equipt for this type of town but everyone seems to know everyone. Plenty of people grow up in Scappoose and never want to leave or do not move far away. It is a very safe town and people do not fear for any crimes or theft.
Scappoose is a friendly place that's great to live in. it's a small community that allows you to connect with people easier and more frequently. Definitely worth stopping by!
