I really enjoy the community of Scappoose. The small town feel is very pleasant. I walk my dog daily before work and feel very safe, even at night. There is limited grocery options, only Fred Meyer and Grocery Outlet, however Scappoose is close enough to St. Helens or Portland to do other types of shopping. I commute into Beaverton daily for work, the commute is not bad at all, taking 30-45 minutes depending on traffic. Overall I really love living in a small town that is safe and holds a strong sense of community, but still am close enough to Portland to visit as often as I would like.

Scappoose is a safe small town which is rapidly growing. Its called home to many country kids and those who chose to stay in town too. Its perfect for commuters but far enough away we don't see large town issues. We are an hour away from the beach and the mountains, and perfect for any type of family.
Scappoose is a great town to start a family in and raise your kids. The schools are all local and are within walking distance of each other. There are a handful of good restaurants and the neighboring town is just seven miles away if you are craving something different.
